Take This Blog and Shove It, Part 1

March 17, 2019 By bangkok7

Salutations, reader. It’s your boy Seven, neck-deep in the heart of the red light district. I’m trying out a new series, the objective of which is to take apart some of the more inept claims, comments, and literary crimes in other people’s Bangkok-related blogs. That scene—The Bangkok blogger scene (BKBS for short)—is caught, as it

Hey guys, it’s Friday again, and that means it’s time for another Frowback. This article was first published on Sweet3Mango last year. It’s part of the Thai Therapy series exploring the idea that one can cure many of The West’s ills simply by moving to Thailand. This one covers the topic of PC culture and

The Steakhouse Co. Summer Menu Preview

March 10, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey everyone, it’s Seven again. Last night was media night at The Steakhouse Co. They held a private party for some of BKK’s most prolific food bloggers, and yours truly was there. The reason for the festivities was to roll out the new summer menu, much of which I’ve already tried over the last few

Thailand Problems: An Accidental Ode

March 8, 2019 By bangkok7

Howdy-ho, gents. Seven again. Comin to ya between pints in Patpong. In my life as a Bangkok whoremonger, I’ve often thought up sweet, gogo-inspired poetry whilst sitting stage-side in a red-light bar, but I usually forget the thing by the time I sober up. For today’s Frowback, I submit the first one that I was

In Seven’s long and storied history of whoremongering in the red-lights, he’s had some hits and misses (but thankfully no missus). The following is a record of the misses. What’s up friends, it’s your man Seven again. Here to come clean. Here to open up. To keep it real. Even in the red-light—the land of

Verse of Vice: a Red-light Rhyme

March 1, 2019 By bangkok7

Happy Friday gents, it’s Seven again. I’ve got another ditty for you. It’s been on the internet for a few months already—I think over at Sweet3Mango. I submit it here for your enjoyment (or loathing, and either way I couldn’t care less), along with the old intro: “Seven is a jack of all trades. No,

Oddendum: A Sevenisms Glossary

February 26, 2019 By bangkok7

Happy weekday everyone, it’s your man Seven, reporting from the heart of the gogo. For this month’s Oddendum, I have something particularly odd and overtly endum. Over the course of the past year, I’ve invented some words that as far as I know did not previously exist in the lexicon. Mainly out of laziness, I

Bada Bing Gogo: My Personal Goodbye

February 24, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey there, stranger. Long time no see. It’s your man Seven, reporting as always stage-side in a red-light gogo bar. For this weekly, I’m paying tribute to a pillar of Patpong—Bada Bing gogo on Soi 2. At the end of this month, they will close their doors, remodel, and re-emerge as something else. Most likely,

What’s going on, reader? How’s life treating you? It’s Frowback Friday, and even though technically this isn’t a Frowback, and even though I know you don’t like poetry, I just had to post this. It just appeared this morning on my laptop. I must’ve really tied one on last night, because I don’t remember writing

Shameful Habits of a Bangkok Bachelor

February 17, 2019 By bangkok7

Happy Sunday, intrepid net surfer. You’ve found your way to Bangkok Seven’s weekly column. Today’s offering is a confession of sorts, but it’s also a celebration (confelebration, copyright BKK7). I confess that, as a middle-aged bachelor, I have not adopted the kind of self-care that is usually taught to husbands by their wives. And at
