The heat is on

A city eatery quite literally has a hot challenge for patrons. It has organised The Bhoot Challenge on Halloween, where guests will have to finish an eight-inch pizza in four minutes. The catch is that the topping will feature a sauce made from bhoot jolokia, one of the hottest chillies in the world. Not just that, it will have green chillies and chilli flakes as well, and if participants are able to finish the pizza in under four minutes, they will then have to sit still for another four minutes without any water to soothe their palate. Winners get a gift hamper and free pizzas for a month. Needless to say, this one’s not for the faint-hearted.

On 11 am to 12 am 
At 1441 Pizzeria, Andheri and Kala Ghoda outlets. 
Call 8655021441 
Cost Rs 395

Ball of a time

The event aims to create a conversation around gender issuesThe event aims to create a conversation around gender issues

“Our idea is to introduce drag culture in the country, and create a space for all identities to explore themselves under one roof,” shares Gurleen Arora, co-founder of The Gay Gaze Bombay, adding that an event they are organising will not just explore their own identities but help educate attendees about drag as well as Halloween’s connection with the queer community. “It creates a conversation around gender. Halloween has been an integral part of queer culture since the early 1930s and ’40s. We hope to break the taboo associated with drag.”

Attendees will be able to groove to live gigs by drag kings and queens including Glorious Luna, SALAURA and Mx.Stallion. The event also features tarot card readings and DJ performances. “Our spaces have always been all-inclusive. We put a premium on bringing communities together,” shares Vivek Dudani, programming head, Social and AntiSocial. “Our aim is to highlight the most unique voices and events that promote inclusivity. This is our attempt towards supporting innovative collaborations and a healthy exchange of ideas,” he adds.

The audience will also get to interact with drag kings and queens, and perform themselves if they wish to. “We pride ourselves in bringing forth free expression of thought and action. We will have a wall of history where attendees will be made aware about its [drag’s] progression over time,” concludes Arora.

On October 29, 5 pm onwards
