The morning after….
Hell of a bash indeed. Emmy’s big one was big. When I arrived at around 8 p.m, it was pretty quiet and sedate. Quinn was holding court from his favourite seat, looking every inch the Emmy bar oligarch that he is. Quite surprisingly though, he hadn’t massacred most of the food that early but managed to make amends later.
Noel and Rose from KruS were there. Mysteriously, young Callan from Australia appeared from somewhere in the environs of the S.T room behind the bar. He’s a long time Emmy pal who stayed at the Katty Bar long before lockdowns kept people away. He finally made it back to Pattaya yesterday morning.
Remembering what Emmy mentioned in an earlier post, about Quietguy not being there, I decided to do something to cheer her up. So, went to an empty bar stool and reverently placed one of those dodgy 7-11 Covid test things and 3 masks on the stool. It was just like having you there QG! I’m sure I could see teardrops falling from Emmy’s eyes.
‘Jimbo the rant’ rolled up with companion on his Motorbike, it was like Barry Sheen going over the finish line at Brands Hatch. German Mike; he of the Annabelle beer-bottle fame, came in. Other guys I didn’t know popped in too.
Within an hour or so, the place was reeling and rocking. At one point Quinn and I counted around 30 LBs. All of the Katty/Emmy Kittens that Emmy mentioned previously were there, and some she didn’t , Spy, Wave, maybe others.
I could see a shimmering vision walking down Soi 3, dressed in a 1920s type Charleston dress, Lady Dao herself, looking magnificent, like a Queen without a crown. It’s easy to see why Brett was so proud of her.
Sophia of Woodie fame arrived looking like a million dollars, with her friend Hannah from the Fantasy Bar alongside her. I think that Hannah had forgotten to dress, but no-one was complaining.
The lovely Bee from Delerious was there, others I didn’t know too.
Starman came, and was almost immediately buried under Mind and Boomy. He wasn’t unhappy.
Pad thai boy and Ice came along.
All in all a good night. As I left at around 1a.m, people were still coming, god knows what time it ended.
You have a bit of a hangover today Emmy?......
