At 2215 tonight the police paid a visit to all the bars on Soi Twilight. I did not notice the army tagging along or supervising. There were a lot wearing vests that said "Police Detective" others were in regular uniforms including a few with a lot of chest decorations, adornments and gold accessories, likely high rank. Maybe 20-25 police total. No cameras.

This was just before show time and it put a damper on the usual shows. There were no pee testing and although the non-Thai boys beat-feet they did not check ID's and did not take anyone in. They walked in every bar and spoke to the manager or whoever looked at some papers and left.

The soi was very quiet for a Friday night. The usual crowds of Chinese for Dream Boys were not present. I wonder if they got an advance warning of there being a police visit?

X-Size just finished a new lounge bar downstairs, bar stools (uncomfortable) and a few tables with comfortable chairs.

Hotmale staff is short as they split personal between soi Twilight and their new bar across Suriwong, the old Jupiter location. Hotmale is the only bar so far to have taken definitive steps for the impending (?) demolition.

New construction curtains/barriers went up at Rama 4/Sathorn saying 'Bangkok One' and 'The Future is Now!' I noticed from a high floor Fitness First Q-House there's nothing going on inside. It's been like that for years.

The police were taking their new police chief for the district on a tour of his new 'patch' on Friday night.
They walked around Soi Taniya and Soi 4 but did not go into any bars.

Got this last night from a long time Soi Twilight employee: Maybe after Songkran, the bar will move to a new place. Not sure where it will be. I mean every bar in the soi will move.
