It’s just two more days to the Biggest BYOB Party in Northeast, and people in Guwahati and Shillong just can’t wait to get there. We met some excited souls across age groups and here’s what they had to say:
“Great concept, seems interesting too. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy their favourite drink, with their favourite company in the hills of Meghalaya? ” – Swagata Gautam, design student
“I think this is just great, as buying booze for a party usually seems to be headache. People have different preferences and fulfilling everyone’s demand is quite a task. So you bring your favourite drink and enjoy the party however you want to. Even better at a bigger scale.” – Anisha Sheikh, Master’s student
“I would love to be at a party, even if the party says bring your own booze. In fact, the concept is good because people will drink sensibly depending on how much they can afford, along with the rules laid down by the event organisers.” – Anushree, Master’s student
“So I don’t drink, except wine. Most events don’t usually have wine, so a BYOB works for people like me. But I might be a little skeptical about camping, as people may be at the risk of being a little tipsy.” – Varsha, Master’s student
“It’s an excellent idea for the party scene in the Northeast. I hope it does well, and next time I’m home I’d want to attend one!” – Alpana, works at OML
“This is a great initiative, as this means that people would enjoy their choice and not be restricted to what is being served. Most people have a particular taste and do not like to waive from that. BYOB is pocket friendly and people generally carry the quantity that he or she wants to consume, which cuts down the chances of getting completely wasted. There are times when one person within the peer group ends up paying for the whole bunch, which I believe is unfair and with the BYOB concept, the room for such instances would decrease.” – Parnai Das
“It definitely could be encouraged. My friends are really excited about it. People anyway pre-drink in their cars and come for events; rather make it open. Plus with a bigger version of it the management should keep in mind some rules, which they already have.” – Abhilasha Bharali
We also spoke to VAS Inc., the organisers, to tell us what people should be expecting at the event.
“This is an event by all. It is the people who will make it bigger. The first pocket-friendly event to have a good time with friends and a platform to make some new ones. Good music, good vibes is what one should expect.
It is time to be close to nature, feel the rawness and have a nice time with loads of activities in store. All in all, it will be a blast of unlimited fun.”
