Tide Is High But We’re Holding On!

Flooding on Silom many years ago

Don't Panic It Has Happened Before!

5th Anniversary Of This Website – I am happy to announce  this week we celebrate five fantastic years of Dave The Rave. From humble beginnings, the popularity of the Go-Go Guru has grown phenomenally over the years. And get this, it all started to keep my friends informed about fun in the sun! This website now receives between 20,000 and 50,000 Unique Visitors a month. Now that’s a lot of friends for what is technically a one man blog!

An honoured compliment comes from Stickman who has congratulated me on the growing popularity of my website. In terms of the vast number of people who read Stickman Weekly religiously (as I do), I am proud of Stickman’s praise for my website.

To celebrate I have some FREE drinks to give away at Angelwitch Go-Go Bar in Nana Plaza, so please join me and let’s party! I will also be handing out FREE copies of After Dark Asia magazine. Due to the floods in Thailand, I intend to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Go-Go Guru throughout November and December. This is not only a chance for us to party, but for me to show my appreciation to you.

I have some great news with the addition of a brand new nightlife information page on Cambodia and Phnom Phen.  I have to thank my webmaster Toby for helping me with this and putting in a lot of gruelling bar hopping in Phnom Penh over several visits (poor guy!).  Please check it out!

In addition, I am adding another selection of stunning Thai girls to chase away the flooding blues. The situation in downtown Bangkok remains dry and we are optimistic that the massive pumping out currently underway will ease the situation for Bangkok residents in the next couple of weeks. Our sympathies and commiserations go out to the Thai people who have had their homes flooded and their lives disrupted. Not forgetting of course, the hundreds that tragically died.  It pays to remember this has happened before and I have no doubt that ‘Teflon Thailand’ will bounce back from this crisis.

I advise you NOT to cancel your trip to Thailand, because the best way to support the Thai people is to come here. The economy needs you, but more importantly, there will be a lot of lonely ladies and single mums, that will be counting on your continued support.

As always thanks for visiting and enjoy the Photo Gallery below…

    Hi Dave, Coming to Bangkok on 18-20 Nov. I have been to Nana plaza a few times, but not Angel Witch, just found your site, which has lots of great information, thanks for keeping it so current. I am really looking forward to visiting your bar. My experience with 20 years of travel is ‘don’t travel’ warnings, unless issued by the country you are going to are way, way exaggerated. So, unless the taxi actually sinks on the way from the airport, I will be there. Come hell or high water – lol.

    Hi Dave, I’m glad to hear your report that things are dry and running like usual in Nana Plaza. Planning to fly into Thailand next week and wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay in Bangkok or just continue onto Chiang Mai or Phuket. Really like Bangkok but wasn’t sure if the Go Go clubs and bars were still up and running because of the floods. Now I will definitely stay in Bangkok and “help the economy” and recovery effort by spending my money on a few of those “lonely ladies.” Will share some drinks with you when I get there! What days are you at Angelwitch?

  7. Hi Peter, thanks for your kind words mate. The popularity of this website is remarkable, when you consider I started it just for fun. I have much appreciated your support and friendship over the years. I will buy you a beer mate. Cheers!

  8. Hi John, Thanks for your kind words. I look forward to meeting you in Angelwitch (Nana Plaza). There are no After Dark Asia Calendars, but I have a stack of After Dark Asia Magazines to give away.

    Hi Kevin, we hope that downtown Bangkok remains dry, but it is advisable to continue to monitor the situation. Be aware that Phuket has a water and alcohol supply problem. I’m in Angelwitch most nights. Thanks for your comments, I look forward to meeting you.

    Hi Al & Yufeng, you are most welcome. I look forward to meeting all of you guys. Cheers!
