There are lots of curry clubs around the UK and there is room for lots more of them.
Just what is a curry club?
Simply, it’s a group of like-minded people who meet regularly to have a good time whilst enjoying a great meal.
Most curry clubs meet once a month at a pre-determined Indian restaurant and indulge themselves in their favourite meals.
Some clubs exist just to meet up for a curry.
And other curry clubs rate the restaurants that they visit for qualities such as ambience and service as well as the food itself.
At least one club that I’ve heard about (the Bognor and Regis Curry Club) organise an annual overseas trip. Their last trip was to Sorrento, in Italy. I’m unsure as to what kind of curry they have down there. But I’m sure that the club members had a good time.
Most clubs don’t charge any membership fees – they just want you to turn up and have fun.
If there’s a local curry club in your area, why not try it out? You can keep an eye on the local press for community advertisements or flyers posted around town. Or even do a search on the Internet to see if there’s one close by that has a website. There are quite a few club websites around – I found clubs in Bognor Regis, Petersfield, Milton Keynes, Isle of Man, Bury and Plymouth in less than 10 minutes.
If you can’t find a local curry club then why not start one? All you need is a group of curry eating friends or acquaintances, such as workmates, who can meet one day a month. And if you’re quick on your feet, you can sometimes get a discount from a local curry house if you just ask for one – tell them you’re bringing 5 friends along on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening and see what they offer.
Being part of a curry club is all about eating good food and having fun. I belong to an informal club that meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We’re into curries and football and have a great time.
Why not join or start a club now?
