And that's not all that's planned for the Los Angeles Mumbai Sister City Afilliation's celebration of India's festival of lights, Diwali, Oct. 12.
You can learn your fortune with a tarot card reading, win great prizes in a raffle and taste wines from Alexana Winery in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Alexana was founded by Dr. Madaiah Revana, whose goal was to find a site that would yield Pinot Noirs comparable to the great wines of Burgundy.
The party starts at 6 p.m. at the Bombay Cafe, located at 12021 W. Pico Blvd. in West Los Angeles, with free parking adjacent.
You'll get to taste dishes unique to the cafe such as the crunchy haldi jhinga (shrimp) at the top.
There will be much more to eat, so if you like that kind of food, sign up by Oct. 3. Tickets are $75 each or $600 for a table of 10. Send checks payable to LA Mumbai Sister City to Mira Honeycutt, 2283 W. 21st St., Los Angeles, CA 90018.
Not only will you get great food and drink for the price, but some of that money will go toward Americares' mobile medical program that serves inhabitants of the slums of Mumbai (Bombay).
