Patpong Rewind for 7.8.22

Happy Sunday and happy August 7th 2022, reader (if you are in fact reading this on the day of its posting). How’s your post-plandemic plodding along going? Mine’s pretty mundane. I’m back in the saddle, back in the habit, back in the gogos like old times, soaking up the nightlife I so longed for during…

Patpong Rewind for 31.7.22

What’s up gents, Seven here with another report from Bangkok’s oldest redlight district—Patpong. ‘Twas an eventful week in the Big P last week. I’m trying out a new abbreviation for Patpong: The Big P. It might only last for this post. We’ll have to wait for fans’ reaction. Naturally, I spent the bulk of my…

Patpong Rewind/Nana Update for 24.7.22

Salutations reader, how they hangin’? My name’s Seven and this is my blog. For the past 3 and a half weeks, Thailand has been Covid restriction-free for nightlife venues and tourist entry, which has caused a tsunami of people, partying, and pleasure-partaking here in the Eastern City of Angels. My stomping grounds of Patpong once…

The New Amsterdam

No, I’m not quoting a Counting Crows song. Marijuana—or ganja, as it’s known in Thailand—has been decriminalized in TLOS. This is a game changer for a country trying to recover from the devastating loss of tourism thanks to the scamdemic. Like a broken clock that’s right twice a day, the Thai govt accidentally did something…

Patpong Rewind and Soi Cowboy Update for 10.7.22

‘Sup dudes, how’s your day going? I’m Bangkok Seven and this is my blog. Last night, I paid a visit to Soi Cowboy—my first in several months. The last time I was there, punters had to queue up at the end of the soi and get a fucking ATK test, and 2/3 of the bars…

Patpong Rewind/Nana Update for 3.7.22

What’s up reader, how they hangin’? My name’s Seven and this is my blog. If you didn’t make it to Patpong last week, not to worry. I’ve got you covered—or rather, I’ll cover what you missed. Some of what you missed. I also missed some stuff. Additionally, I schlepped over to Nana Plaza, and I’m…

Patpong Rewind for the Week of June 26, 2022

We’re on the cusp, folks. In a week’s time, the floodgates will open and tourism will return to Thailand finally fully unhindered by stupid, brain-dead, ridiculous, retarded Covid restrictions. For a gogo hound like me, it’s bittersweet. I loathe tourists, so this marks the end of a blessed respite from cunts the world over jostling…

Patpong Rewind for 19.6.22

‘Twas a strange week in ole Patpong. A power struggle between Bangkok’s new governor and various faceless bureaucrats, a “vacationing” police chief, and the imminent reopening of the country all seemed to play a part in onpong goings on and for better or worse, this gogo hound was there to witness it. Hey everyone, my…

Patpong Rewind for 12.6.22

Greetings gents, it’s your boy Seven again—fresh from another week in the Red-Light. Things in Patpong are still quiet, thanks to the slow rollback of scamdemic restrictions leading directly to a continued dearth of tourists, but things are gradually picking up. But the overall increase in tourism isn’t on par with the enthusiasm of bar…

Thailand’s Only Flaw (plus Patpong Update)

The Land of Smiles is a near-perfect place to live, especially if you’re a foreigner who loves warm climes, tropical beaches, and women with long dark hair and skin the color of cane sugar. But it’s not perfect. The country has one solitary flaw: moronic leadership. It’s not an exclusively Thai problem. God knows my…
