The British Chamber of Commerce (BCCT) Eastern Seaboard group held a social evening at Jameson’s Irish Pub last week, with its very British Landlord Kim Fletcher pontificating and providing plates of bar snacks.
The president of this BCCT splinter is Mark Bowling, who had taken off his wellies and downed his spade and gardening fork to assist Kim in beer drinking; after all, there’s nothing worse than finding beer left over at the end of the night.
Assisting with the beer dispensing were lovely ladies from Heineken and Tiger, while the San Mig girls went one better by dispensing free beer!

If the beers and snacks were not enough for the revelers, a birthday cake was brought out for Earl Brown (English, but not a Nobleman as in “Your Lordship”) who had turned 40 and suddenly found he was on the wrong side of the ledger.
Whilst it was a night for the Brits, a lone American stumbled across the event and stayed, and we hope you enjoyed sitting next to Angie, Don.

Having lost his way from the Amari, Dutchman Kees Cuijpers regaled everyone with the numbers from his Moovers and severely Shaken up event with 4,397 attending. He was rather taken aback to find the BCCT After Hours had attracted 30 people, with another 4,398 finding their way up from meeting up at the Soi between 5 and 7.
Keeping everyone in order was the dogman Joe Cox, who was overheard saying, “Move along, move right along. Nothing to see here.” Old habits die hard.

The necessary paparazzi (or should that be “Papa Razzi”?) was there with Charming Rodders, who supplied the photographic evidence, to be used later in court cases. Kim Fletcher also donated the tapes from the security cameras after watching them the next day, to see just what he had done.
A great idea BCCT Eastern Seaboard. You must do it again.
