It’s the first week of August which means Friendship Day is just around the corner. It’s true that like all other relationships in your life, friends cannot be celebrated for just a day. The 3 am friend, the friend you always turn to for advice, the gossip friend, the office friend, the childhood friend, the best friend, and so on, one cannot have enough friends. Friends make life a whole lot better, and that’s fact! To celebrate bonds of love with your ‘chosen family’ doesn’t harm dedicating one whole day to those precious gems. And nothing gets better than sipping on delicious tipples and indulging in lip-smacking culinary delight. So, celebrate friendship day with a delicious meal at the top spots.
