It’s now estimated that the flood has left over 20 million people homeless in Pakistan, if you are wary about donating money, here’s another alternative (and a logical one) purchase water tablets and have them send to these following locations, they will be sent over to Pakistan to help restore the drinking water over there. Water is essential to human life… let’s make a difference UDR folks!

Send the tablets to either address

Dedicated Entertainment, Inc., 43-49 10th Street, Suite 500, Long Island City, NY 11101

or

Shaheen of Hicksville, 255 S. Broadway, Hicksville, NY 11801

He will be performing in Lahore and Islamabad, the energy he brings on stage will kick start people into action to come together and “fight the storm” as one.

Hallmark Events Dubai and Pakistan is sponsoring this concert, proceeds will go to help Pakistan, where millions are displaced due to the floods. This cause is close to Bohemia’s heart, he’s originally from Pakistan and wants to do everything he can to help the people there.

Last night, there was a special private party for VIP costumers of Mela Tandoori Oven, their original location once situated underground in the Tenderloin district has gotten a major upgrade! The new Mela Tandoori Kitchen is located in the San Francisco’s Civic Center area, local business folks and city politicians are excited about Mela’s grand opening (happening later in the coming week) because their only other choice for Indian/Pakistani food is Naan n Curry. The Naan n Curry in the Civic Center area was mention in the 50 WORST PLACES to eat in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.

Mela has two floors, the first floor is the dining area and upstairs is the “Hookahs n Hose” lounge, where you can indulge in a wide variety of different hookah flavors. The charcoal is actually organic; made with coconut shells.

The restaurant is own and operated by Subedar Brothers (Sohel, Moiz and Zoaib)  they are following in their fathers footsteps who opened the first Indian/Pakistani restaurant in the Tenderloin in 1986, “Shalimar Gardens” after their father retired, the Brothers re-branded it to “Mela Tandoori Kitchen” which evolved into a after hour hookah lounge.

Congrats to the Subedar Brothers and Family!!
