Come to the Club's first Friday Brunch of the year on 17 August. 3.75 pound all-you-can-eat, kids eat for 2.50. We will have a range of breakfast and brunch items on offer.

Cereal, yoghurts, fruits, juices, nice breads and hot menu items, including made-to-order omelettes and fried eggs. This all-you-can-eat offer will be available from 10:00 until 12:30.

We hope to turn Fridays into all-day occasions at the Club, and we think the brunch is a good way to start the mornings.

On Friday 24 August, band BlueNote will return for a candlelit evening of jazz and blues. On Friday 31 August, member Ben Snowdon and guest guitarist Isaac will perform.

Quiz Night 2 and Italian Night both successes

17 June 2007

Quiz Night 2 enjoyed a huge turnout, with 10 teams and somewhere between 50 to 60 participants! The next quiz will probably be scheduled for the second Wednesday of every month - so the next one is Wednesday 11 July.

Italian Night proved far more popular than the usual BBQ, with over 50 main courses sold. For only a few hundred taka, we transformed the downstairs dining area, and we think we'll just keep the candles, plants and dimmed lighting as standard. It also offered us an easy test run for future Saturday themed nights - should the next one be Mexican, Thai, Phillipino, American, French, Spanish? Let us know if you have any ideas.

Celebrating the longest day of 2007: the Solstice party

14 June 2007

Thursday 21 June 2007: the Solstice party

The celebration will begin at 18:48 sunset and will include fire spinning, cocktails, sangria and a BBQ. Theme: sun, fire & summer, so wear something bright and something cool (bring your sandals, sunglasses, shorts, swimsuits, lunghis, anything)!

Free entry. High temperatures (79-93 Fahrenheit, 26-34 Celsius) and showers are likely, so dressing down should help.

The return of the BAGHA Club Quiz Night

10 June 2007

Quiz Night is back this coming Wednesday, and we hope you can make it. Pick a team name, wear a team colour and test your knowledge! Entry fee to the competition is 100 taka per person, and the money will go to the winning team's charity of choice.

The last Quiz Night was a success with a decent turnout - let's see if we can get a larger crowd this time. The BHC Club also hosted a Quiz Night last month, and if they're up for it, we'll bring back the Bagha-BHC relationship that we enjoyed a few years back.

You don't need to register beforehand. Just show up for the Happy Hour and enjoy a good laugh before we head downstairs for the quiz. Happy Hour 18:30 to 20:30, finger foods served throughout. Teams of up to 5. Pick a name and colour. Quiz starts between 19:30 and 20:00.

Everyone loves Italian food, so...

8 June 2007

La Bella Notte on Friday 15 September 2007

A special Italian a la carte menu will be on offer for the evening. The evening starts around 19:00, and the kitchen closes at 22:00. Space may be tight, so book a table for you and your friends beforehand (500 taka). More details are available in the office.

Move quick for tickets to the return of band Blue Note

They played here last month to a 100-strong crowd that helped to raise 30,000 taka for the Bangladesh National Women Lawyers’ Association Hostel Appeal. We hope to exceed that amount this weekend.

Blue Note to play at the BAGHA Club on Thursday 3 May

Our first live performance of 2007 will take place upstairs from 18:30 on 3 May. BlueNote, which is Andrew Morris on the sax and Saad Chowdhury on the piano, will play to raise funds for the BNWLA Hostel Appeal. Tickets are 300 taka, and soup and salad bar will be an additional 200 taka.

This is both the first music event and fundraising event in some time. You are warmly invited to show your support. By spreading the word of the event, you are helping Blue Note and us raise funds for the Hostel Appeal. The funds will help victims of domestic violence, trauma and rape.

Event follow-up written on 7 May...

On the first jazz & blues event at the new Club, BlueNote played to a roughly 100-strong, extremely appreciative crowd. Many, many thanks to the performers and the attendees.

Blue Note will be back on Thursday 7 June.

We want to make live music a regular feature at the BAGHA. If you know of any willing musicians, let us know.
