An Eventful Saturday: Part II

June 23, 2009

Part I: Read about how OG, AS and AK decide to go to a nightclub.

As we stood in the line to get in, I had time to notice the people around me. Most of the people around were in “party gear” and we three, looked so odd against that background. After about 5 minutes, we got our chance to enter the nightclub and the atmosphere was just brilliant. The night was young and the “crowd” had not yet assembled in as yet.

Acting cool and with a strut in our step, we went up to the bar. AS ordered his JD whisky, AK ordered his Heineken beer and then it was my turn to order.

“Can I have some Coca Cola without ice please”, I asked.

The beautiful waitress froze for a few seconds and so did the people around me.  “What did you want?” she asked again with a strange look. I had to repeat my order and then she gave me a glass of the same saying that, I was the first person she had seen in a long time who did not want some form of alcohol.

And thus, the night went on. By around 11 PM, the dancing frenzy began in real earnest and I was still waiting to see AK and AS put their plan of asking a girl to dance into action so I could follow suit. The main problem as I saw it was that almost every girl had a guy with her and those who did not have a guy with them, well, they had a girl. OG’s keen observation skills told him that the girls who were dancing together were the most beautiful in the club. (Alas, what has happened to the world?)

When I asked AK about it, if he was going to approach a girl, he did not respond. It seemed strange at that moment, coz AK who was really talkative until that point did not seem to understand what I was saying and he went into his shell.

Let me put it in simple words. If you guys go to the beach, one of the first things that you would all notice would be the steady rock jutting out of the water. What I mean is that we three (AK, AS and me) were conspicuous because of our steady stationary state. Imagine the whole club dancing, gyrating, and moving fluidly to the music and three guys standing the corner wishing that no one would notice them. That was our state.

As the night progressed further on, AS managed to get drunk (as usual) and AK went into meditation until around 11:30 PM, when something happened, something clicked!!!

Around that time, when we were actually bored, the DJ played the song “mundian tu bachke rahi”. (India has arrived on the international front, I tell you guys). Something clicked inside AS and he started dancing our famous “ganapathy/dappankoothu” dance. Well, his enthusiasm was infectious and all three of us started dancing in our little corner totally oblivious to the stares. It felt good at that moment and it reminded me of college.

And thus we danced (like this) till about midnight. During that half-hour, I can proudly say that I executed so many classic steps that “Vijay” and “Govinda” personally would have been proud off and we managed to step on many a toes.

By around 12, we had had enough and stepped out of the club into the cool night. I was tired and started thinking about my bed when suddenly AK said,

Let us all go to the casino dude. I want to gamble” and AS shook his head vigorously in agreement.

I tried telling them about how sleepy I was, but nope, no one would listen.

Arre dost, casino pass mein hai re. Don’t worry. We will play for an hour and come back”, AK said and the motion was carried out as it was 2 vs. 1.

And thus we started driving to the casino!! About 15 -20 minutes into the journey, I very naively asked AK about how much longer it would take to reach that place and his answer shocked me. He said that it would take us a good hour and a half to get there. As I found out later, the casino called “San Manuel” was in the next county known as “San Bernardino”.

So finally around 2:30 AM (after late night dinner and after losing our directions multiple times) we reached the casino and I was very tired at that moment. I told them to carry on and gamble away the night and I would sleep in the car.

After wishing them luck, I got into the car (in the parking lot) to have a much needed nap. As I was about to drift away into a semi conscious state, dreaming about Trisha (no dirty comments please 😀 ), I was woken up by a very loud alarm sound.


Some idiotic fool had managed to trigger a car’s alarm that was parked close to ours and I lost all my sleep. That stupid alarm took about 5 minutes to die down. Then again, I settled down to get some sleep and after some time I was again in a semi conscious state, when…..


A drunk couple who were making out in the corner had managed to upset the dustbin and I again as usual, lost all traces of sleep. After cursing them (under my breath off course), I once again tried getting some sleep and pretty soon feel asleep until I felt someone shake/slap me.

Again, I woke up to see AK and AS laughing like idiots.

Dai, I want you to see the sunrise. It is exceptional”, said AS and at that moment, if I did not have my seat beat strapped on, I would most probably have murdered him at that spot.

 Yes, it was 5: 20 AM and the sunrise was absolutely brilliant. Mountains on one side, the freeway on the other, clear blue sky above, it just looked gorgeous.

Apparently AS and AK had quit early as they had lost a lot of money. So we started on our way back and finally reached home at about 7:30 AM. As much as I tried to fall asleep, I could not on the return journey nor could I sleep after reaching home.

I finally drifted off to sleep around 10 AM and got up late in the evening and read Vimal’s post and that was when I started writing my tale.

Man, there is a certainly a conspiracy against us. I know that for sure!!!!

Overall, the experience was good. I got to see a nightclub for the first time in my life, managed to sleep in the parking lot of a casino and the fun that we had, reminded me of my college days………….

    as you can see, I can continue on and on about trisha 😛

    I liked the way you put the episode in words. One can easily visualize a pathetic OG and his drunk Friends:P
    OG: ROFL…. yes, what to do….. life is like that 😛
    Did they really play that run-off-the-mill Hindi number in the club? Good, good.
    OG: I was surpised that they did… it felt good 😛
    Coke with Ice:P i would ve gladly asked for a Martini shake:P:D

    I would want to get drunk only ONCE and see how it feels like 😛

    Ha ha ha……I can totally imagine three guys doing the “ganapathy’ dance in a corner…, I am not sure about the finer nuances of this dance, but I think I know what the moves are like! All desi males have some version of this… 🙂
    OG: hehehehehehe 😛 Yes, most desi versions of dance are pretty similar 😛
    Coca cola without ice? Red Bull is probably safer and healthier than coca-cola, dude.
    OG: i dont like redbull 😛

    u managed to surprise a beautiful waitress – consider that among the plus-points of the day/nite!
    OG: ROFL….. yes, that was the only good thing that happened 😛
    oh yea I had a similar experience. we had a cruise along the Thames river for our orientation programme in London. half-way thru all the hip hop numbers the DJ started playing ‘mundiyan toh bachke rahi’ and all the delighted Indian students screeched in delight before shoving everyone out of the way and started freaking out on the dance floor! LOL… aaah what memories! 🙂
    OG: it is fun when something happens out of the blue like this…. we were shocked and we loved it 😛 the audience too loved the song
    and of course… think of it this way… globalisation is when u can play Govinda and Vijay steps in a nightclub in USA… ain’t it? 😀
    OG: yes!!!!!! 😛
    ROFL @ seat-belt restraining u enuff to not murder the other guy!! i’m sure everyone has a friend like that! 😀
    OG: Seriously…. I just thank god he did not pour water on my face…… 😆
    I liked the sound u made symbolising dropping of a dust-bin… very realistic! 😛
    OG: 😛 😛 😛 😛
    Lessons learnt:
    1) take a girl with u when u go to a nightclub…. even if it is just a girl who is a friend. atleast u wont look so forlorn and have to linger at the sidelines!
    OG: I know, A lesson well learnt the hard way……….
    2) u and vimmuuu are definitely komalikkal cousins by karma…. talk about having similar weekends unbeknowst to each other… half the way across the globe!
    OG: ROFL!!!!!! strange are the ways of the world….. hehehehehehehe
    Cheers! 😀
    OG: Cheers to you as well 😛

    OG: err…. I would not say that……me not an ideal boy 😛 I was not well that day but yes, Ms. Z is still hiding 😛

    OG: actually I liked it…… the atmosphere was great!!!

    ROFL at having cola there….I have seen that look so many times when we go out that now I get surprised when the waitress doesnt get shocked!
    OG: LOL!!!

  18. June 23, 2009 12:57 pm

    Most of the people around were in “party gear” – what were you wearing 🙂 Don’t tell me – I can totally imagine 🙂
    OG: normal shirt and jeans 😛
    You know – in the US – everytime I asked for coke – they would be so delighted – I was always assumed to be the ‘designated driver’ and get free coke 🙂
    OG: yeah, one has to follow this funda of designated driver…… 😦
    Three guys standing still and not dancing must have totally confused them – and then for the three of you to go berserk in Govinda style 🙂 Sure must have scared them! Next time they might end up screening for you guys – If a ‘threesome’ looking like AK, AS and OG came by – no admission 🙂
    OG: hahahahahahahahahaha…… 😛 we will go to next nightclub 😉
    And you guys drove to the next county!! Now that is adventurous 🙂 And have to say – AS and AK are totally made for each other 🙂 Poor you having to sleep in the parking lot 🙂 But think of all the interesting stuff you can tell your grandkids 🙂
    OG: I know….. A have so many stories like this 😛 AS and AK are great guys….
    that is why we bachelors rock!!!! no tension 😛

    For ignoramuses like me – please post a pic of Trisha’s – i have no idea who she is 😦
    OG: please check link on her name….. I have linked her name
    That sunlight sounds divine! You should have clicked a pic of it!
    OG: alas, but I did not have camera 😛

    OG: i would not say that 😛 😛 😛 😛 but since I had not recovered from fever…. …..
    Btw, AK and As, they really hate you, dont they ??? or was it their revenge on you before you left to Sunnyvale?
