It's turning out to be the year's biggest party and everyone has a plan how to celebrate.
The final match of the 2011 cricket world cup between India and Sri Lanka is keeping every Gurgaon resident busy — how to enjoy the game. And they are spoilt for choice.
While most restobars such as Vapour, Howzatt and Turquoise Cottage have
happy hours on offer along with catching the match on giant screens, Culture Gully at Kingdom of Dreams is going to throw open its air-conditioned indoor street.
"It would be fun to watch the match while munching on cuisines from different states," said Anchal Kumar, who plans to go to the 'gully' to watch the world cup finals.
And unlike Wednesday, many are happy that it is a weekend, so no need to take break from work.
Even in city's cinema halls, the focus has shifted from Bollywood to cricket. PVR Cinemas is screening the final match in six halls at Ambience Mall in Gurgaon.
Gold class tickets for the match are available at R2,000 per person while the PVR Premier tickets are for R500 per person.
"The response has been really good since the semi-finals. We have received bulk bookings for the final match. The halls are almost booked," said a source.
Those who want to combine shopping and cricket can head to the malls.
MGF Metropolitan Mall has put up screens at the food court for cricket lovers at no extra cost.
"I will be going to the food court with my college friends. It is fun as one can have what one wants and make a lot of noise too," Anshu Kumar, a student of class 11, said.
But those who are unable to get any off on this day are also not lagging behind — they plan to catch all the action on radio.
"I am not lucky enough to have an off, but my heart is on the field and I wish our team all the best," said a salesperson at the Nautica store in Ambience Mall.
