Most bars have more staff than customers, gogos probably 5-1. had a businessman sit beside me this winter in a gogo in pattaya, he commented on how can these bars stay open, no customers in most,

Great.    Did you notice I started this thread in the Pattaya Forum?

Thanks. How's the bar doing now?

Owing to the recent COVID outbreak, The Authorities have mandated closure of the bars in Chonburi and elsewhere. Thread:

 

 

So, closed now. Very law-abiding, TQ.

Good to see Ewan McGlashan is back in town.

 

Has taken charge of Steak & Co. which might save it.

I hope you are correct but in the present climate it is tough.... cheap and cheerful is what works.

Yes cheap and cheerful is the winning formula but still people try charging falang price and crash and burn. Starbucks, McDonalds are good examples of that

I've had my usual double espresso in Starbucks for the past couple of weeks. Wasn't aware it had in fact crashed and burned.

Yep, I'd never heard of McDonalds or Starbucks ever closing before, but for example we have Soi 13\1 and Soi 13\2 closed, plus others

When McDonalds or Starbucks or 7-11s close that's pretty much the end of the world.....Because they almost NEVER close......Covid knocked out both Burger King And McDonalds in the Centrals food court.......And what popped up there now?......What else but a Indian Restaurant....lol......That is of course ALWAYS empty......And no I am not joking.......

Hate beetroot.... a nice soup to start and personally, like many older folks, I avoid sweet deserts.

The target market available now, retired Western expats, have mostly not had their pension incomes negatively impacted by Covid. I wish him well.

They will soon . With all the money that’s been printed in the west we are already seeing massive inflation and it’s going to get worse . If I was a pensioner I’d start thinking on what to do with money I have sitting in banks abroad as I fear the exchange rates could get much worse in the not too distant future .

Many non-state pensions, and some from the state, are index-linked so should not be impacted negatively by inflation. Investment options are a whole different matter.

With regard to Steak & Co, I am pleased to see them taking the initiative in challenging times and hope they succeed.

yeah 1% in UK, massive...

Lumber /fuel / housing . My house went up 25% in value in one year we are all living on printed money ! if we think we are going to come out of this smelling of roses then you are massively mistaken  ! Interest rates at an all time low and can’t get any lower , that’s a huge indicator of a struggling economy . The uks economy has been in the <deleted>ter for over a decade and I can’t see it ever recovering . So I wouldn’t use there as an example .

Sarcasm, a low form of wit. Had I been a veggie, I doubt I would be interested in the special or that particular restaurant. With a choice of a soup starter, and maybe a cheese follower I would have been there. Are we not allowed to express comment anymore here unless it is low wit?

Thanks to US bankers (rhyming slang applicable).

It is a fixed offer deal at a fixed price, a sampler so to speak. If you visited the place you could select to your preferences.

Apologies if I offended you, no offence intended.
