Indian restaurant Mukka will hold a flurry of colourful celebrations in honour of Holi, throwing themselves a warehouse party in Collingwood on Sunday, April 29th. Holi, the festival of colours, will see Second Story Studios come to life as part of a raucous, music-laden, street food-heavy affair.
Live music from classical Indian instruments such as the sitar and the tabla will get you stirring, and visitors will be greeted with a glass of chai and mithai, Indian sweets. There'll also be a street food stall serving samosas, dosa and bhel puri, as well as a storytelling of the origins of Holi.
To fully partake in a Holi party, it looks like you'll have to get messy: Holi really is a celebration of colours, so prepare yourselves. Grab some of the (organic) coloured chalk, aka gulal, and go crazy: paint the town (or the warehouse and yourselves) red or any other variety of colours.
"Colours mean everything but nothing at the same time," state Mukka — what better way to lose yourself on a Sunday afternoon and work out all the stresses of the week?
