A party with a difference at DosBar

‘Small Wonders’ - a show with a difference

A party with a difference at DosBar

For those of us who can remember that far back, does the term ‘Mods and Rockers’ bring back recollections? If it does, and if they are of the ‘Mod’ persuasion, then on January 23, there is an event which will definitely be a ‘don’t miss’!

The Dos Bar on Soi 6 off Nimmanhaeminda Road - spacious, airy and comfortable.

A newly-opened bar, restaurant and entertainment venue on Soi 6 off Nimmanhaeminda Road seems to have become a rendezvous for lovers of Vespas and Lambrettas, with a sprinkling of Honda 50’s and 100’s thrown in. This coming Friday, DosBar will hold a Ska and Reggae party for riders of these ever-popular machines, with a Best Scooter contest and lucky draw with lots of prizes. It promises to be a great night, with music, good food, and the added bonus of free whisky before 9.30 p.m.
DosBar, which opened two months ago, is a new concept in bar/eateries with a difference - spacious but intimate at the same time, with tables well spaced, serving Thai and a few farang dishes at very good prices and with a mixed clientele. Décor is attractively modern, and the accent is on music with 5 different bands on call after 8 p.m. every night. From 11 pm, also every night, the focus is purely on reggae music.
The location is good, with unlimited, easy parking, and the whole place has a good feel to it. Opening hours are 6 p.m. to 1.30 p.m., every night of the week.
So, if you’ve got a scooter - or even if you haven’t - go along on Friday January 23, and have a great evening!


‘Small Wonders’ - a show with a difference

The Chiang Mai Charity Calendar, already a very successful fundraiser, is venturing into ‘show business’ for the same good cause - by organising a performance, entitled ‘Small Wonders’, to take place at the Kad Theatre, Kad Suan Kaew, on February 21, with all proceeds being donated to rural children through the Charity Calendar Project.
The variety performance, featuring song, dance, music, percussion, instrumentals, choirs, solos, drama and art… and more, will begin at 2.30 p.m., and will be presented by local students of all ages and nationalities, the youngest being aged 6. This is the very first time that kids of all ages in the city have come together to raise funds for their disadvantaged counterparts.
Schools and organisations whose students are taking part in this unique performance are the Chiang Mai Christian German School, the Children’s Shelter Foundation, Joy’s House, Nawattuphme International School in Lampang, Payap University; Prem Tinsulanonda International School, the Russian Ballet School, San Payang Wittiyakom School, the Santi Music School, Wichai Wittaya Bilingual School, MIFA Music School and the Dream Weaving for Peace Foundation in Samoeng. There will also be guest celebrities including the internationally-known children’s magician, Dr. Penguin, presenting the ‘Laughing Wizards’ and Marty Le Gray, the world-famous juggler, plus the award-winning musician and jazz pianist Dr. Thorsten Wollmann, accompanied by Dr. Pimonmas Wollmann.
The Children’s Art Exhibition, on display at Kad Suan Kaew between 12 mid-day and 2 p.m., will feature displays of arts and crafts for sale, and there will be a silent auction of the original paintings featured in the 2009 Chiang Mai Charity Calendar.
Tickets priced at 100, 400, & 500 baht, will be available from January 19 at Kad Suan Kaew Information Counter, the Amari Rincome Hotel, Absolute Hair Studio, all branches of Rimpinging Supermarkets, Café Pandau, Hillside Condo 4 Reception, La Gondola Restaurant (in Ketawa Boutique Hotel) and at most of the participating schools.
