Daves Raves – One Knight In Bangkok

STEPHEN HENDRY ROADSHOW THAILAND 2008Snooker legend Stephen Hendry has returned to Bangkok from two very busy, but enjoyable days in Koh Samui and Pattaya.  The pubs in Koh Samui and especially Pattaya, gave Stephen a deserved warm welcome.  In particular, the venues in Pattaya really made an effort to promote the Stephen Hendry Roadshow and it certainly paid off for them.  In the Queen Victoria Pub in Pattaya, two autographed polo shirts were auctioned off.  A total of  34,000 baht was raised for charity.  Ralf Winkler, the official photographer for the Stephen Hendry Roadshow commented, “Stephen has a lot of fans in Pattaya, he was very busy meeting them all.”  Roadshow organisers Rob Murray (Fluid Asia Pacific) and Bryan Sharp (Scottish and Newcastle Brewery) are very pleased how well the event has gone.  Rob said, “We have received very positive feedback about Stephen from all of the venues that he has attended.”

JOHN SMITH'S BITTER IN THAILANDAs the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end.  And so, we come to Stephen Hendry’s last evening in Thailand.  I don’t think I can emphasize this enough, but Stephen is one of the all-time greats, who ranks along side the world’s most accomplished sportsmen.  Stephen will make his final Roadshow appearance in Soi 8 Pub at 5:00pm and then in New Wave on Sukhumvit, Soi 7 at 6:30pm.  The Stephen Hendry Roadshow was proudly hosted by John Smith’s Bitter and Strongbow Draught Cider. 

We hope that Stephen enjoyed his time in Thailand, as much as we have enjoyed meeting him.  Stephen is a true gentleman and I am sure that many people will eagerly await his return to Thailand. 

As for Stephen’s female fans, they were pleased to see that there was at least “One Knight In Bangkok!”

  1. Being part of the Stephen Hendry Roadshow as the public relations representitive has been most enjoyable.  In addition, this week there are two significant personal anniversaries.  My first trip to Thailand was 20 years ago in May 1988.  I think I’m starting to feel my age! 

    Also, I have been running Angelwitch Go-Go Bar for exactly 3 years.  It has certainly been a very special week for Dave The Rave.

    Dave,

    Congrats on 3 years at Angel Witch. It’s so much fun to party in the gogo’s but I know its a tough place to work, so this is quite an accomplishment – especially after your 6 or 7(?) years at Hollywood! Cheers!

  3. Hi Lee, thank you very much for your kind words. After a total of (approaching) 10 years in Nana Plaza, I’m please to say that I am still in one piece. Also, I have somehow retained my sanity! Most guys can see that there is more to being a go-go bar boss than meets the eye. Although there are far worse jobs in this world, I am pleased you pointed out that it’s clearly not a gift from heaven! Some guys say that they would not and could not be a go-go bar manager and yet others are very envious. One thing I can say is that it remains a fascinating and infectious world. Cheers!

    Congratulations Dave I quess. I am not sure you are human though. I simply do not understand and can not fathom how you can work in the Go Go bar arena every night. You are either made of razor blades and barbed wire; or the lobotomy was very successful. I respect you I quess. But it is a little like respecting
    an android that surpasseth understanding. You are doing what I could not do unless I had carte blanche from the government to unload a Mac 10 every night. And I think I would also need excessive prideless behavior
    and drugs to get me through each night. Good luck.

    Infectious ? Oh oh – have you been messing with the young ladies at the bar ??? Just kidding – though they certainly are very beautiful. I’ve always enjoyed Angelwitch and the shows. Keep up the good work.

    BTW – do you sell T-shirts and / or ship them overseas ?
