Vol 1. No 5. February, 1998
More venues are opening their doors - and hey, who can complain about that!
First up to the plate: Albury, off Sukhumvit 11, a "Men's Club". It features a gym, restaurant, massage, steam room, and lots more. Gotta pay this one a visit! You can give them a call at 255-8920. They're open from noon to midnight daily.
Next stop, Sukhumvit 23 and Soi Sawatdee. The upstairs to Utopia is now called Top Secret and it's a pub with massage available. Drop up.
Whirlybird caught Lee and Friends at Cyberia on the corner of Sukhumvit 24. Cyberia is an Internet cafe, but don't let that stop you. They feature live music, free movies on Sunday and much more. Lee and Friends play every Monday evening starting about 9pm, doing a wide range of stuff from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Some virtual establishments for you: both Heaven Sauna and Colony Sauna have set up shop in cyberspace. See www.utopia-asia.com/heaven.shtml and www.utopia-asia.com/colony.shtml You'll find DJ Station at http://dj-station.com
The LongYang Club had a fab to-do late last month, and they've changed their phone number to 679-7760.
Coming up this month down Soi 4 way will be lots of music in a massive effort organised by the Rome Club. Towards the end of the month you'll be treated to live shows on the stage of the Rome Club and big discounts on tapes and CDs. Lots of major music companies and artists will be on hand. And in March, look out for "Las Venus" every Wednesday night which promises to be fabulously outrageous with mile-high hair and massive camp. More on that later!
Telephone will be featuring an art hanging by Neng (probably upstairs) to be kicked off last Thursday of the month.
Carpediem Galleries on Sukhumvit 55 will be staging a
hanging by Symon called "Dream of the Blue
Buddha" along with pottery from Manan Kanaratana
beginning on the 15th. Call 714-9903 for
Wondering what to do for Valentine's Day with your lovey-dovey? Sphinx will be having a sit-down in the evening. Check out the great new artwork.
Khun Chompuu has taken over Guide of Bangkok's Pink Page, and graciously took note of Pink Ink though she did say we could be "improved graphically". We'll forgive her for that and wish her well in her tenure as the Pink Page Correspondent.
Chompuu, by the way, apparently missed our first issue which carried an interview with Manuel Pinedo of the Rome Club, who apologised profusely for the goings-on that took place in his absence. Rather than boycotting the Rome Club, she should, perhaps, live and let live.
Was that J.W. chatting up a bevvy of beauties in Sphinx when his old Japanese boyfriend walked in and took a seat at the next table? Or J.B. who received a visit at work from her rather young lady friend who just happened to be wearing her school uniform? Or one of our glorious editors taking a nosedive off a bike out in front of Utopia for failing to see the pothole? Hmm...
Whirlybird picked up "Sex, Longing and Not Belonging - A Gay Muslim's Quest for Love and Meaning" which promised to be a good read but the writer turned out to be vacuous. The author seems to draw no conclusions from his life, and doesn't even address the issue of Islam and homosexuality. Very dissappointing. Oh well.
