Reminder, the first Sunday of the Month BBQ will be postponed a week due to the Bon Om Tuk Water Festival NOV 1,2,3, Much of the riverfront in front of the Royal Palace has been re landscaped and most of the construction wall has been taken down. Always a mad house but good fun and great fireworks. Take Care of your Valuables and watch you wallets in the crowds.

Hellhounds Again

The Hellhounds rolled into Sharky Bar Monday night playing a great mix of blues with a few Dead songs worked into the mix.
Looking at the crowd you would have thought it was a Saturday night. This time they brought along a bass player and a percussionist.

Da and Lyna acting up.

More pics of the band.

Broken guitar string and the band didn't miss a beat.

Nary working the beef Satay.
Many other Thai Favorites on the menu.
I had the Pad Siew this evening.

Hellhound Guitarist Steve Goodman admits he is a better photographer than a musician and I would have to agree. Steve was a long stay customer at California 2 while making his transition to PNH expat life. We shared Photo stories and I remember getting a pic of him getting right up close to one of his subjects, a beautiful girl in traditional dress performing at a party next door. I was glad to capture this IN YOUR FACE STEVE shot of him on stage.
Check out his blog. He has some good PNH insight and all kinds of great city life pictures. He really captures the Heart and Soul of the people that make this a great place to live.

Its guys like Steve, and repeat visitors to the Capital who used to stay at California 2 who have come into Sharky over the past year wondering where their PNH starting point would be after the closure of Cali 2.
Well I am happy to announce (and you heard it here first on the Sharky Blog) that California 2 is now open again. I only hope we can duplicate the improvements on the fish tacos that we now serve at Sharky.
We had a soft opening party on the 19th of October. We took over the old Wooly Rhino, formerly Berts Books and gutted the place. It has been a long six months of buiding and we still have some bugs to work out, but should be able to take bookings by December. In the meantime we have a few guinea pigs offering their insight on the rooms.

As for me, I am a busy man these days (putting this blog up for one in the lobby after closing at Sharky this evening for example) and will continue to split my time between the two places.
A few shots of the place below.

I think Steve Goodman the Phnom Penh Photographer/Rockstar on Stage at PNH longest running rock and roll bar in Indochina will agree, Dreams come true in Phnom Penh. I know I am living one!

Men's Pool Comp

Sunday night brought in plenty of familiar and some unfamiliar faces for 10-1 odds at going home with a prize at the first annual Sharky/Pocket Guide Pool Comp.

Action started about a half hour late and went til midnight. All were interested in the 200 dollar first place pot and the free bar tab.

Pisey and Mai at the free Ladies table and not too concerned about the event.

Baz who got eliminated about midway through taking in Premier League. He called Liverpool losing by 2. Soccer and Baz shooting pool have a lot in common. Long time for any action on the field.

Marco our resident German celebrating his third place prize. I think Marco could have won first prize and we still would have been on the better side of the business deal. Marco thanks for your regular patronage and thanks for participating.

Speaking of Germans....

Phnom Penh Oktoberfest coming up soon at the Cambodiana Hotel. Come on in to Sharky for details and pick up some tickets. Everyone who has ever attended over the years has raved at what a good time it was.
Friday and Saturday October 9th and 10th, Tickets 15 dollars.

First Place went to Beit on the left and Second place to Tobe on the right. Fantastic finish. Good job guys.

Nary enjoying some great after event grub. Fun night had by all and we hope to do it again soon. Thanks to Tim, Dean and Cleve at the Pocket Guide for your help and support.

We are happy to announce Route 66 coming back on the 16th and 17th.
We hope they will make it. Last reports, Kampong Som raining everyday and not sure if there is boat service to PNH yet.
