Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

Fresh Boys at the new location had a soft opening tonight. It's on the second floor of Patpong 2 above Screw Boys. Drinks were 100B! for the opening night but might stay at that price during the soft opening period. There's a small beer bar at ground level. Inside is on the small size. They had some...

Re: International Fireworks Festival - Pattaya - nights of June 8 and June 9

http://www.siamatpattaya.com/ 2853B on Agoda. Higher than usual but not in the gouging range. Get to the roof top bar/pool early and stake out a place where late comers can't stand in front of you like at the edge of the pool. Room balconies will have a good view too if you're on a high floor and o...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

Condo owners don't get too excited about a local courts ruling in Hua Hin. I would think that a local court would not have national jurisdiction and prevent short term condo rentals. I would guess some local Hua Hin hotels do not like loosing business to these short term rental customers and got a l...

Re: Farang Pays 10 Million Baht to Marry Thai Boyfriend

Interesting that another article in that issue of the newspaper has the headline “Foreigners snapping up Bangkok luxury condos”. No poster has batted an eyelid at that!! And those condos are selling for millions of US$! I have to do a double take every time I see billboards of these new condos alon...

Requiem for Dick"s: Many came on the last night to pay their respects. Some of whom I've not seen in years came out to have one last drink and say 'play it again Sam.' You will be missed. So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu The Sound of Music, 1965

Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

I just received word from a reliable friend that Dick’s Cafe will close this Saturday perminently.
The end of an era. RIP

I’m out of town this week but might be able to pay my last respects Friday.

Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

Staff meeting at Dreamboys last night, 25 April 2018: They will probably remain in Soi Twilight for one more year. Yes, one of the mamasans said that's what the old German said, but not everyone believes it. I was told the the owner of the X-Size that they are moving to a location on Patpong2 in tw...

Haulover has a hug gay section with a sexually charged atmosphere. The Y I went to as a kid was originally an all male organiza...

Re: Where did Boys Not Wear Swimming Trunks in 1952?

I grew up in Boston and most of the YMCA's had a nude swimming policy. I guess I was around 9 or 10 years old, the year around 1963, and my parents sent me to the Y to learn to swim. We would take off all our clothes and put them in a locker and walk nude to the shower room not use soap, just rinse ...
