Bar Closures For Kings Birthday

Recommended Posts

Some of the comments bring back memories. In the past I seem to remember the day was partially celebrated by free vasectomies country wide. Like any good idea there are always a few that slip thru the net

My experience of the King's birthday, Pattaya, is that the gogo's will be shut but the beer bars will be open serrupticiously (sp?). So there'll be no music nor obvious signs of libations being taken but you'll see plenty of folks driniing "tea" at the bars. Restaurants will not be serving alcohol and I doubt if any of the big supermarkets will sell it either. But you can always rely on the good old mom'n'pop stores to do the right thing..........with respect to their takings/profit :):D .

Sooner or later someone's going to post a "why can't you show respect and do without alcohol for a day?" reply and, in their own little way, they are correct even if they lack a life.

Unfortunately in this restrictive communist state we are left, as adults, to decide all these kinds of issues ourselves leaving the nanny states to look after the democrats.

:D

The bars being "closed" for the King's birthday has been true in Thailand since I first went there in 1976. Nothig new about that.

And "Tea" or "Coca-Cola" being avaiable in paper cups has been around about the same length of time.

I don't personally care one way or the other...I stopped drnking heavily a good 20 years ago, when I realised I was nearing 40 and felt like I was 60.

Should have done it 10 years earlier.

But I still don't give a "hoot".

:D

I might be wrong but there was no closure last year? But maybe I am mixing up the days.

We should all accept this day, because it is an important one for Thailand. However I have some problems with the ban on election days, cause I can't vote....
