The Best Laid Plans of Vice and ‘Ven, or How Bar Girls Can Ruin Seven’s Day

Bar girls—or, you know, whatever you want to call them—gogo dancers—are like cats. They’re sleek, nimble, and impossible to train. No wait—I can think of a better simile.  Gogo dancers (bar girls) are like hurricanes. They’re wet, they’re loud, and they go where the wind blows them. Hmmm. That’s not quite right.

The Week Onpong October 21 2018

Hey folks, it’s me, Seven. I’m just livin’ the dream here in Bangkok, Thailand. If you’re stuck somewhere else in the world and can’t get here, I’ve got you covered. Just live vicariously through me.

This week on Patpong, it was more of the same but also a few different goings on (I’m sure there’s a better way to say that, but for the life of me, I can’t think of it). King’s Corner began a makeover, both inside and out. They’re not quite finished yet, but from the looks…

Mex Near the Red Light: Nana

Hello again, I’m Seven. I live the dream in case you can’t, and sometimes eat in crappy restaurants so you don’t have to. After the wild success of my series “Burgers near the Red-Light,” which literally dozens of people read, it seemed only natural to move on to the 3rd greatest food in the world after…

Burgers Near the Red-light: Soi Cowboy

Today’s offering is a review of Mexican restaurants, rated in the order of their proximity to Soi Cowboy. I’ve already done this for Nana Plaza and Patpong,…
