Now that the May Queen has been crowned (and then wrestled to the ground for the tiara by the runners-up), it's time to get to the real deal. After all, how much fun can you have watching people dance around a pole (unless they're well-oiled and thonged)? Wouldn't you prefer free booze? Wouldn't we all?
ITC has woken from its summer snooze to organise a ten-day festival that covers all the major pleasures of life (give or take a couple) - there's food, drink, music and dance. The festival will cover all of the hotel's restaurants and its pub, ending in a grand May Fest at the Dublin. On offer are some good deals on drinks at Dublin and Marco Polo, plus an all veggie special menu at Dakshin, a neat bargain for students (toppers are going to have it real sweet), and a biggish discount at the Dumpukht.
Here's a dekko at what's on where and when: May 21 - 23: Dublin serves every fourth drink free 24 - 26: Salud Go Mexican At Dublin 21 - 31: Happy Hours at Marco Polo between 4 and 8pm 21 - 31: Peshawri serves a pitcher of Kingfisher beer free with every Kebab Platter 21 - 31: Make Your Mark at Deccan Pavilion (for students, bring your mark-sheet along for a discount) 22 - 31: Veggie Specials At Dakshin 21 - 31: Khwan-e-Dumpukht Special at Dumpukht 27 - 30: Dublin May Fest
