Big Fight Live – Mayweather VS Mosley

Saturday, May 1st, 2010


Floyd Mayweather takes on Shane Mosley for the World Welterweight Title.  It will be an earlyn113002695407335 28031 - Big Fight Live - Mayweather VS Mosley start for fight fans across Thailand, because the fight card starts at 8:00am on Sunday morning.  However, the main event will not start until some time after 10:00am.  This is one of the most anticipated fights on the boxing calendar and some boxing pundits expect it to be one of the most exciting fights of the year.  As per usual, Mayweather has been shooting his mouth off, but does Mosley have the boxing skills and firepower to silence Mayweather?  The stage is set for a fantastic fight.  Various pubs across Thailand will show this World Welterweight Title Bout including the Robin Hood Pub on Sukhumvit Soi 33/1, Chequers Sports Pub on Soi Nana, Bully’s Pub next to the JW Marriott Hotel and the Pig & Whistle Pub in Pattaya.  It will soon be time to line up the Bloody Mary’s and let’s get ready to rumble!

The Big Mango Bar have just announced that there will be a Soft Opening Party this Tuesday, June 3rd.  The reopening of the Big Mango was scheduled for Sunday, June 1st, but not surprisingly the Thai builders overran the proposed date.  The new Big Mango is located in the tiny alleyway between Jools Bar and The Tavern on Soi Nana.  Jools Bar is opposite the 7 ELEVEN near the Rajah Hotel car park.   


Eve X Zone Pattaya Thailand - Daves Raves - It's Party Time!Pattaya can be an unpredictable place at the best of times, but the hiring and firing of bar managers can happen at a whim.  Some Pattaya guys refer to one particular bar boss as Rambling Ricky!  Shortly after the partners of Sisterz Go-Go Bar decided to release Rambling Ricky, he was on the move again to secure another go-go bar.  Following a period of negotiations, he has now become the manager of Baby Dolls Go-Go Bar.  For those who are unsure, Baby Dolls is located in the increasingly popular Soi 15.  Ricky commented that although Baby Dolls has now changed ownership, it will continue to operate with the current format.  Rambling Ricky’s following now know where they can find him.  I know one thing for sure Tricky Ricky’s show concepts are hot stuff.  I hope Ricky settles in at Baby Dolls, and that things work out well for him.  Let’s face it, we are all getting dizzy trying to follow Rambling Roaming Ricky!  If you are in the neighbourhood, please visit Baby Dolls and pass on my regards to Ricky.  Cheers!

Thailand Night Fever

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008


Stephen Hendry 002 - Thailand Night FeverIt is certainly not every day that a famous sports celebrity rolls into town.  When did you last meet a living legend from the world of sport?  This week it is an honour for a selection of pubs in Thailand to host Stephen Hendry.  For some people who are not familiar with snooker, Stephen Hendry is deemed by many people, as the most successful player in the history of the game.  In any sport, it is a fantastic achievement to become World Champion.  However, Stephen has achieved this feat a record breaking seven times, which is truly remarkable.  I am sure most of you know that snooker is an extremely skilful and highly competitive game.  But, the “Flying Scotsman” made it look all so easy.  For eight consecutive years, Stephen Hendry dominated snooker by remaining top of the world rankings.  Stephen started playing snooker at the tender age of 12.  At 16 years old, he became the youngest ever professional snooker player.  Stephen then went on to become the youngest World Snooker Champion at the age of 21.  It is fair to say that a very special sports celebrity has arrived in Thailand… (more…)

Daves Raves – An Open And Shut Case

Monday, May 19th, 2008

FLUID ASIA PACIFIC %20051 - Daves Raves - An Open And Shut CaseDue to today being a Buddhist Holiday some bars will be open and some will be closed.  It is something of an open and shut case!  Late last night I found out that most of the bars and nightspots in Bangkok and Pattaya will be closed tonight (Monday, May 19th).  Furthermore, as already predicted, the Thai authorities have ordered beer bars, go-go bars, discos and nightclubs to close out of “respect” for Visakha Bucha, which is one of the most revered Buddhist Holidays.

FLUID ASIA PACIFIC 052 - Daves Raves - An Open And Shut CaseHowever, there is some good news for those on a booze cruise.  For those of you in Bangkok who won’t be rushing off to a nearby temple, there are at least two pubs open in Bangkok tonight.  I am pleased to announce that the Stephen Hendry Roadshow will go ahead tonight as planned.  Former World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry will make appearances in Robin Hood Pub (Sukhumvit, Soi 33/1) at 18:00 and then in Bully’s Pub (next to the JW Marriott Hotel) at 20:00.  I will be there to meet a living legend of the baize.  Tonight John Smith’s Bitter and Strongbow Draught Cider will be available at a special discount price in Robin Hood and Bully’s Pub.  Cheers!

Daves Raves – Buddhist Holiday

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Sunrise Tacos Bangkok Thailand 004 - Daves Raves - Buddhist HolidayHello Guys, I have been thinking about you recently.  Hey, now don’t get worried, because I’m not getting gay here!  I appreciate the large audience that this website has created over the past 18 months.  Therefore, I want to keep you updated more regularly.  Recently, I have been wondering about how I could update the website more often.  You may have noticed that I have created several new pages.  At first, I was so proud to see those new sections up online for the entire world to see.  I thought, “Great stuff!”  Then I thought about the time and effort involved to update them all.  Oops!  I hadn’t taken that into consideration.  For example, if you look at the alphabetical listings, you will see that some are more updated than others are.  Please excuse me for that, but there are only so many hours in a day!  The good thing is that I can keep posting updates and those A-Z listings will eventually fill up with information.  It just takes time that’s all.  Last month this website received the most hits in over a year.  Thanks for all your support; this is what makes it all worthwhile.  Cheers!


Buddhist Temples Bangkok Thailand 001 - Daves Raves - Buddhist HolidayYou need to be aware that this Monday, May 19th is a Buddhist Holiday.  Wan Visakha Bucha is one of the most important Buddha Days on the Thai calendar.  From the information I have gathered, you will probably find that most nightlife areas across Thailand are likely to be closed on May 19th out of respect.  But, if you ask around you might get lucky.  Remember that restaurants and some pubs will still be open.  In conclusion, remember that the vast majority of go-go bars, beer bars and nightclubs will be closed.  If anything chances closer to May 19th I will post another update.


Stephen Hendry 001 - Daves Raves - Buddhist HolidayFrom this Monday, May 19th until May 23rd seven-time World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry will arrive as a guest of John Smith’s Bitter and Strongbow Draught Cider.  Stephen who comes from Edinburgh in Scotland likes Thailand and he has accumulated many Thai fans.  At one time, Stephen Hendry was top of the world rankings for a record eight consecutive years.  Stephen was also the youngest ever World Snooker Champion at the age of 21.  Stephen will be making a series of one-hour appearances at pubs in Bangkok, Pattaya and Koh Samui.  Stephen will make himself available for a questions and answers session, as well as some exhibition frames.  John Smith’s Extra Smooth Bitter and Strongbow Cider will be available for a special discount price at each venue.


In association with Brian Sharp from Scottish & Newcastle Brewery and Rob Murray from Fluid Asia Pacific, Dave The Rave wishes Stephen Hendry a warm welcome to Thailand.
