Another Reason To Drink and Be Merry

Cazbar is celebrating its anniversary, and I am proud to announce to the world, that the bar, which name was formed during a weekend away at one of the shareholders’ house through some quiz (the one who came up with the name that would be used for the bar will get free beer and {updated Nov 21} the stool with his/her name),  is already 3 years old, and they will share the joy and happiness by throwing a fab party with free beer and entertainment for the whole night.

I like Caz not because I have to, but because the place is friendly for female patron who comes alone. The staffs are friendly and call you by your name, and the place provides free wi-fi too. I feel secure there and could hang around for hours with my macbook and glasses of wine or cappuccino without being interrupted or disturbed by sleazy old men like in most bars. I spent many times having work lunch at Caz since my L’Oreal office was only stones away, mostly with Tamara or Rocky. I occasionally took my staffs for afternoon coffee (disguised as ‘meetings’), and spent Saturday mornings with late breakfast and The Guardian papers. Friday lunches were sometimes with GG and he would be having fun guessing what I would have for the day. Most of the times he was right as I often went for lamb chop (still do), although apparently my choice of meal was criticised by an Indonesian blogger — who thought I trespass the international luncheon code of ethics because lamb chop should only be served as dinner — which is funny since the said blogger a) definitely isn’t a chef, has a zero knowledge of how to build up a menu for international guests or how to run a restaurant or pub; b) has never set foot at Cazbar, let alone tasted its food, yet found a liberty to criticise its menu. Rocky the chef would be delighted; c) as an Indonesian, should be familiar with full meal breakfast concept like fried rice, satay, or soto and even can have them at 2AM off of street stalls and yet thought that having red meat at lunch time is wrong and d) urged me to stick with vegetable instead, which is the most bizarre advice I have ever got in my life, especially since the said blogger isn’t my dietitian, personal trainer, doctor, spouse, even friend.

Cazbar was also a choice of venue to meet other bloggers offline. I met Therry there for the first time, and then met Therry, Elyani and Ecky there too. If I didn’t have to have Sunday brunch at 4 Seasons, I would have met Toni and Elyani at Cazbar too! One of Caz’s best thing (apart from lamb chop, obviously) is their Caswell coffee. It tastes much better than coffee from other franchise stalls, and although a cup of cappuccino can contain hundreds of calories, I keep ordering it after meal (now that is something that actually the said blogger should criticise, as Italians only have cappuccino in the morning and never have it after meal and have espresso instead).

This Saturday, I would be dancing at St. Andrew’s Ball, 12 thousand km away, but in my heart I am dancing for Cazbar.

Happy anniversary, Caz!

  1. I’d love to meet you there when you’re around Nit.
    Have a great dance there … :)

    Tonis last blog post..Miskin koq nyalahin Tuhan

  2. Ohhh Cazbar, would love to go back there. Club Sandwich-nya enak banget, and the portion was huuuuuuuge!!! All the food’s portion was huge come to think of it – but not pricey.

    22nd November is Caz’s bday? That’s this saturday then… same day as PB 2008.

    @Toni:Toni, you’re coming right, with Elyani?

    therrys last blog post..Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

  3. Too bad they deleted my fave menu: mango squid salad… :(

    Btw, the boys decided to go to Caz instead of EP.

    Eckys last blog post..Well pardon me for having big boobies!

  4. Toni & Therry: why not go to Caz after PB’08? The event starts at 7PM anyway so you guys have plenty of time. Brilliant, right?

    Ecky: you should submit your complaint to Jasper. I love their mango squid salad too, remember we used to order it almost every time? Yum yum. Tell the boys they’re going to have a blast. Crowded, loud, drunken, pushy customers fighting over free beer. Magnificent!

  5. really, you shouldn’t have lamb chops for lunch. stick with your veggies! LOLOLOL

    I dont eat lamb, anything else good on the menu? Will have to go there the next time I come to Jakarta, which is still lightyears away..

    rima fauzis last blog post..Gue? Perek??

  6. Ah..she got the wrong person to share her food expertise with. That advice should be addressed to me because I don’t eat lamb, I eat salads for dinner (1 big bowl consists of tomatoes, cucumbers, mango with garlic lemon olive oil dressing), and I enjoy a good cup of coffee :) Happy anniversary to Cazbar, anyway! may they have many more to come.

    Elyanis last blog post..Wednesday randomness

  8. Rima: come and try it yourself. So when would it be? 😉

    Elyani: now you’re making me feeling guilty having lamb chop while you’re eating healthy!

  9. Who could not envy you for your Cazbar experiences from the past and the new extra exciting one which is coming up. I for one do. But, like the other fellow who, like me, obviously is a culinary ignorant and essentially even non existent, I wonder: lamb chop for lunch/brunch??????

    But then, what the heck. You must try everything at least once in your life. So, next lunch stop, I’ll order lamb chop.

  10. Colson: that’s the spirit. But if people eat steak for lunch, then why not lamb chop? *wink*
