Have you ever had 'chai' tea, a traditional, sweet & spicy tea from India? Well, interestingly, the word "Chai" is actually just the word for "Tea" in Hindi, the language spoken in India.  So when people say "Chai Tea", they are saying "Tea Tea".  Come experience this delicious cultural drink, and more, at this year's Bollywood-themed formal Midnight in Mumbai, February 20th, from 9:00 pm to midnight.  If you would like to bring a non-grizzly guest, you must apply for a guest pass in the Main Office before Tuesday, February 16th.
