As threatened.… we’re attempting the Pattaya Soi 6 bar crawl. 1 drink in every bar – without exception.
Just like we did in Soi Cowboy a few years back.
There are more bars in soi 6 than there is in Cowboy. On the Cowboy crawl, there were only a few people left standing if I recall. So this time, we’re spreading it over 2 days.
The Cowboy run was a hoot – and we made new friends. I don’t expect this one to attract as many people – but even if it’s just a handful of people – it will sure enough be a giggle.
The plan is to start around lunchtime on Sunday 11th Feb – going into the night and crashing out somewhere (many cheap hotels on soi 6) and then reconvening on the 12th – powering on till the finish. – All departing Patts (if you want to) on the 13th after breakfast where we can share our battle scars.
Everyone welcome of course.
Oh.. and if you don’t think you can handle drinking that much – there is always the option to have a soft-drink or a shot of that girly Tequila Rose stuff. As long as you’ve had a drink – you can make claim to say you’ve completed the Soi 6 bar crawl.
Approx 60 bars. If you budget for 150bht a drink = 9000. Plus accommodation, food(?) and any ‘extras’ you may want. – It still works out cheaper than a night out in Nana.
Rolln… I tried booking you a flight.. but the website asks for Name/Surname. It won’t accept ‘ROLLN’!
**** Update! ****
We had a little discussion – about how are we going to write it up. Do we even want to write it up? If we did, would it be about the bar, or about the group having a laugh?
But then, if we wanted to record events, how could we do that? The Notes app on our phones? Hmm.. how many people would have flat batteries or lose a phone? And after 30 bars.. who is going to be able to operate a phone?
We did think of hiring a ‘scribe’. Someone who’s only task would be to take notes – have a few drinks of course – but mainly soft. They have a job to do after all!
Then it was suggested.. why not barfine a girl to take notes? Swap her out every 10 bars or so? hmmm, not sure her writing skills would be up to it?
So at the moment we are not sure if or how we are going to record the goings on. Maybe I’ll just take a little notebook and we can all take turns in jotting down a few notes? Might be more fun that way?
It’s all coming together…. I’ve just got word that Kiwi Mike is coming in from New Zealand – for 4 days for the crawl.
We’ve now booked hotels… it’s all coming together.. ready for a 3pm kick off on the 11th.
Reason it’s 3pm.. is because my Ferry arrives at 2pm.. and I need to get to the starting line.
Thanks to the guys at Bangkok-Eyes for providing the above map!
