DAVE’S NIGHTSEEING TOURS – SUNRISE TO SOI COWBOY

SOI COWBOY BANGKOK THAILAND 07 - Thailand Night Fever

For some time now, my friend Nick has wanted to hit the town with me.  Nick is currently based in Cambodia as a mine clearance specialist.  Obviously, any day off from the minefields would be relaxing, but I wanted to introduce Nick to some places that he has not visited before.  I took a night off from my duties in Angelwitch Go-Go Bar and I looked forward to the night ahead.  I wasn’t feeling 100% but I was determined to meet Nick and spend some quality time with a good friend.  Nick was about to experience one of my “nightseeing tours” and he seemed keen enough.  We arranged to meet at Sunrise Tacos Mexican Grill, which is located in the Leader Price Complex.  (For those not familiar with the Leader Price Complex, it is right next to Time Square Building between Sukhumvit, Soi 12 and Soi 14).  Several months ago, the owners of Sunrise Tacos decided to take over a vacant space directly opposite their shop.  At first, I was not sure what Greg Lange was intending to do with two Sunrise Tacos shops.  Was Greg intending to open two branches of Sunrise Tacos in the same complex?  This all became very clear when Greg explained the concept to me.  The original Sunrise Tacos is a small place, and it now provides a 24 hour takeaway and delivery service.  The new, larger premise has become a cosy restaurant that is stylishly designed and furbished.  The credit for the interior design goes to Mrs Lange.  Greg’s wife Nui has done a superb job!

CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN BANGKOK (PART ONE)

Angelwitch Showgirls Nana Plaza Loy Kratong Bangkok 2007 - Thailand Night FeverToday is a special Monday, because it is St. Patrick’s Day.  For the uninitiated, St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.  St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated worldwide, but it is a particularly HUGE celebration in America… As I walked inside, I surveyed the scene and within a few seconds, I spotted my friend Rob.  We had arranged to meet at Bully’s Pub, which is located next to the JW Marriott Hotel on Sukhumvit Road.  There was a large table available, so we sat down and soaked up the relaxing atmosphere.  Previously, this place was nothing more than a mere shell, but the new owner ET has done a terrific job of improving it.  We can forget those early days, because Bully’s Pub is now established as one of the most popular pubs in Bangkok.  And, I was about to find out why.  Although it was only 6:00pm, already a crowd was starting to build.  Bully’s Pub draws large crowds and even though it is a large pub, it fills up at peak trading hours.
