Another Birthday

What does turning 37 in Cambodia mean? Well in Brian's case it was
7 Johnny Reds!

What are friends for?

Not to mention the two onion rings and the nine am flight to Bangkok in the morning.
Stay tuned to see if he actually made it.

Lovely Saran our pool girl
was the official witness.

We couldn't get Brian to take on the record nine or the six in one hour, but Surviving 3 is honorable in our book! Good job Brian, and Thanks for letting us make 37 significant.

Route 66 Rocks the House

Route 66, again rolled into town and rocked a full house. The nice thing is that if you missed it tonight, they play again tomorrow. Classic hits and an awesome rendition of Hey Joe! More gigs like this are going to secure their place as Cambodia's premier Classic Rock Band! Don't think they'll relocate from the beach, but you can be sure you can catch them again at future Sharky gigs.

The first customer sampling session of sandwiches on the menu at F.B.S & S. kicked off yesterday evening. A group of people stopped in and were able to sample and rate the products available. Although the motto of the shop is to "Build It Your Way" that was a bit difficult to do with a large group. So we "built it our way" and let people add or remove toppings to taste. The second session is being held today with what should prove to be a larger turn out than the previous evening. Customers comments were all positive and the fresh baked bread made on site at the shop was a big hit with everyone.

The biggest sandwich which will prove a challenge to the hungriest of appetites is "The Fat Boy" and tipping the scale at nearly a kilo it may prove to be the signature sandwich of the shop. As BIG AL said while getting it ready, "Here come the sub with everything but the Kitchen Sink!" Which in no way intimidated patron Curran with AAA, who took one home with him for a snack. For those health conscious folks there is a veggie sub which was well received and also was decided to be spruced up a bit with tofu instead of cheese due to one vegetarian customer's comments. The "soft opening" should follow soon and actual opening dates will be announced and posted here on the blog. So be ready to get your hunger on and come down to FAT BOY SUB & SANDWICH and fill your belly!

On His Way

Today Russell was laid to rest at Wat Preah Phut where Charles De Gaulle turns to Monireth. Russell would have been happy to know that he really brought the community together again. One of the best turn outs for any event I have seen in a long time. He took a wad of cash, a few Anchors and a cell phone to hedge his bets in the afterlife. Huxley's hosted a few drinks afterwards. There will be one more gathering on Russells behalf on Thursday night at the Red Fox around 7PM. I think Russell was having a bit of a laugh on his way out by turning on the heat to the offering candles. They keep melting over. He wasn't making it easy for Bill either as he kept blowing smoke into his face.

On his way in another aspect is Al. Tonight was the first sampling of Fatboy's Subs. I personnally built a two inch roast beef and 4 inch turkey sandwich. Sorry Subway, Phnom Penh won't be jones'n for your sanwiches on their next trips to Bangkok. The ingredients were fresh and the home cooked bread was light and delicious. It won't be long now.

The Great Gig in the Sky

Russell Smith 1949-2009 would have turned 60 on the 26th of this month. Russell passed away March 18th. He was a long loved member of the community, a bar owners best friend, and the number one supplier of mobile telephones. He never muttered bad word about anything or anybody and took things in stride. I am sure all have shared precious moments with this kind man. Russell you will be missed.

Pictures from Sharky, and California 2
The Hangi, Thanksgiving Cruise, Bon Om Tuk Events and just being a right on dude.

Saint Patricks Day

Well they might not be Irish but the girls knew how to power down the Baileys. Saint Patrick's day was a hit for them as well as the others who came out to take advantage of the Guinness, Jameson's and Bailey's specials. Al also had a great Irish Stew on the Menu. Apparently it couldn't be called Irish Stew with Guinness added to it, but I'll forgo the name, because it was delicious. Ross was able able to beat Alley Cat Mark in the half yard green beer competition. I can only imagine the spinning room at the end of their night! Rock Music from Irish artist played all night long.

Friday the 13th

Jason's got nothing on us! Friday the 13th was rockin. Bum and Draze, though not everyone's cup of tea, unleashed their antics to another full house. They played their notorious one set and unleashed their quirky humor. Just what the town needed to break the slow season doldrums.

The night started with a group of hockey masked guys who were taking the mortar round challenge.

Madman cocktails for $2.50 were a hit, and the Angkor and Anchor draft beer went for a dollar all night.

I don't think I could have tolerated being in the coffin for the whole set, especially with all the sweet eye candy in the bar (unless he wasn't alone perhaps?).
