Rose Garden Hotel revisits ancient Rome

Toga! Toga! The Rose Garden Hotel hosted their first toga party last week, the first in a monthly series of fancy dress parties. Everyone who attended had a night they will not soon forget.

The Rose Garden Hotel on Pratamnak Road took a step back in time, to when gladiators ruled the world and after a hard day of beating back the marauding hordes, would relax in the intimate atmosphere of what was to them “normal” evening attire - togas.

The tradition has not been lost, and every so often someone, usually a rowdy fraternity, brings back the toga party as a fun alternative to more modern ways of mingling.

Last weekend, the Rose Garden Hotel held their first toga party, complete with the nectar of the gods. Since it is rather difficult to find an original toga, sheets and towels were the attire of the evening, fashioned to resemble as closely as possible the togas of ancient Rome, and partygoers did a remarkable job turning their “laundry” into evening wear.

The event was the Rose Garden’s first in what will become monthly fancy dress parties to be held throughout the year. And if the success of this first is any indication, we can’t wait for the next!

Pick me up before you go-go

The Hard Rock Hotel in Pattaya now has Pattaya’s first ever 6 seater ‘Tuk - Tuk’ service, offering transportation in and around Pattaya City exclusively for Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya guests.

Hard Rock Hotel introduces Pattaya’s first 6-seater tuk-tuks.

Nisakorn Anutipmongkol, marketing communications manager for the Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya, says, “The new 6-seater tuk-tuks provide a cheap (THB 50) and convenient service with leather seats and head rests, music system, and English-speaking, licensed drivers. These cool machines with the instantly identifiable flaming Hard Rock logo, are the only way get around town to a Jammin Beat!”

Tequila Reef turns one

Owner Rob Vaughn hams it up with two of the staff at Tequila Reef during the evening’s festivities.

Tequila Reef Cantina and Mexican Grill celebrated their first year of business in Pattaya with a fun-for-all party last week. The restaurant, which serves Californian/Baja style Mexican food (and great mango sunrises), has survived a tough year.

Owners Rob Vaughn and Darrel Woolley welcomed many friends, both old and new, to the party. And yes, the drunk and dancing rotisserie chicken is still keeping the beat!

Pattaya Gay Festival’s second year gets off to a roaring success

The PGF recently held its first dinner function of the new festival year with a gala gourmet dinner at Bruno’s Restaurant.

Bruno’s was packed out for the night and the guests dug deep into their pockets to help the PGF fundraising for Heartt2000 and local charities. Over 165,000 baht was raised at this event.

Rotary International immediate past district governor Prempreecha Dibbawan was the guest speaker at the PGF dinner at Bruno’s Restaurant.

This follows the PGF launch party held on Valentines Day at Boyz Boyz Boyz which raised 170,000 baht.

Much of the money was raised through raffles, with wonderful prizes donated by local businesses. Honest Gems generously donated a sapphire and diamond ring valued at 38,000 baht to each of these two events. Kalae Art and Decor donated an antique Chinese cabinet valued at 20,000 baht for the Bruno’s dinner raffle.

The next PGF event will be a charity dinner to be held at Amor Restaurant on Monday April 8, at 8 p.m. Tickets are 880 baht per person with 300 baht to be donated to the charities.

The Pattaya International Ladies Club learns about alternative therapies during their monthly luncheon

The Pattaya International Ladies Club held their monthly luncheon at the Siam Bayview Hotel last week. With the new president, Laurence Fatus and committee, fully taking on their official roles after last months annual general meeting.

Prem Anup Karlsson from the New Beginnings Holistic Center in Bangkok spoke about his work as a healer with the PILC.

The guest speaker for this month’s luncheon was Prem Anup Karlsson from the New Beginnings Holistic Center in Bangkok. Anup spoke about his work as a healer, how he learned about healing, and the benefits which come from the work he does. He described himself as a facilitator, who helps people to help people think differently to improve their lives. He works with a variety of therapies to root out the cause of a problem, as well as strengthen the immune system which leads to better emotional physical and mental health.

The ladies were totally engrossed in Anup’s talk and left feeling suitably more relaxed.
