Well, following on from our First Place win in the Sihanoukville Chili Cook Off, we decided to take the trip with our own Charlie’s Chili Recipe up to Phnom Penh.
The venue was the Lone Star Bar, a place well known for their own Tex Mex style food offerings.
Ten Chili’s were entered and the competition was pretty impressive.
Very pleased to say though, we came a credible 4th place with the Judges, but managed to gain a 1st place with the People’s Choice. There were around 30 people in attendance, so winning the Peoples Choice was a great result for us.
Thanks to the Lone Star for organising the event, we’ll be back there again next year for sure.
Well, the 1st Charlie Harper’s Bar Joker Draw was finally won at $698, what a great night!!
The winner was kind enough to generously buy a couple of rounds for the bar too.
This weekend saw the Joker Draw start again at $250 with one lucky guy winning $50 drinks voucher for Charlie Harper’s!
You have to be in it, to win it guys! Call down every Saturday night before 10:30pm. 1 ticket $1, buy 3 and get a free beer.
To Celebrate the end of this weekend’s elections, and bar closures, we’re throwing a party at Charlie Harper’s!
We can’t guarantee that our leader Hun Sen will attend, but we’ll be having free beer for the first half hour anyway, so join us at Midnight Sunday 3rd June, or earlier
I’ve always been a huge fan of Chili, often had it for breakfast, dinner & evening snack …. much the same as Pizza!
Anyway, we’re pretty pleased with our Chili here at Charlie Harper’s Bar, but i’ve tasted a few other good ones around Sihanoukville. So, lets give credit were it’s due and recognise the Best Chili in Town.
We’re looking for 10 Chili Makers, 10 Judges and a whole heap of people who enjoy Chili & Beer.
There’ll be Certificates, Prizes, T-Shirts, Beer and of course some Great Tasting Chili.
Just to mention as well, proceeds will be donated to a local charity.
Please put a note in your diary and tell your friends!
From this coming Saturday Night we’ll be giving away $200 for a correct Joker ‘Pick’. PLUS $200 of free beer for the whole bar should the Joker be selected.
For those that know, it’s been at the Walkabout in Phnom Penh for around 8 years and has proven to be extremely popular with the Cash Prize raising at high as $28,000!!
Tickets are for sale now at $1, buy $3 dollars worth and you get a free beer! Can’t be bad.
Obviously, you have to be in the bar at the time of the draw (10:45pm) to win it. Tickets that go unclaimed after 5 mins will be binned and another one chosen till we have a winner!
Tickets can be purchased all week right up until 10:30pm on Saturday night.
Hope to see you here.
After the reports from those that attended last weeks Quiz, we’re looking forward to another Fun Thursday Night here at Charlie Harper’s Bar.
Don’t worry, it really is a quiz with a difference … we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we drink and have a good time, it’s a social event rather than a night for solitary ‘boffins’!
The format is, as has been mentioned, a cross between a normal quiz (with music section), and “Deal or no Deal”. With a prize of $40 up for grabs by one of the teams (not necessarily the winning team!).
There is a $1 per person charge and teams must be no bigger than 4 people, half the money raised will roll into the top prize if not won. The other half will go someway to cover the free food we’ll be giving away at the halfway point.
Ok, just in case you hadn’t noticed … it’s the Rainy Season now here in Sihanoukville!
Yes it’s still warm, yes you’re still in one of the best places on the planet too … we like to complain don’t we? Anyway, we here at Charlie Harper’s Bar, well we try to look on the bright-side, so to celebrate the coming of the much needed rain, we’re offering a buy 1 get 1 free offer on draft beer every time it rains.
So, when the rain starts and lasts for 15 minutes, jump out of your hammock and race down to Charlie Harper’s for good company, cheap beer and great comfort food!
Charlie Harper’s Bar – Tuesday, September 13th
I’ll be visiting your lovely town soon to prepare for my upcoming move.
It just so happens that my birthday is during the time I have scheduled to be in Snooky – so I figured, instead of spending it alone, i’d throw a big Party!!
This might be the first time in history that the birthday girl doesn’t know a soul on the guest list, so lets make it interesting!
Party starts at 7pm ~ the first 35 Angkor pints are on me (it’s my 35th bday) and there will be plenty of ridiculous party games to keep the night rolling!
You might be a stranger to me now, but I’m guessing by the end of this party, we’ll be great friends! I can’t think of a better way to meet the people I’ll be sharing my new home with.
Dress code, huh? hadn’t thought of it – but lets do this:
Anyone who shows up “incognito” wearing some kind of disguise, gets a vodka red bull.
and the BEST disguise wins a ‘special prize’.
We’ve been testing out a few recipes for the first of our Mexican Monday nights tomorrow, even though I say so myself, they’re tasting pretty good!
Tomorrow from 4pm we’ll be offering 2 Taco’s and a Corona Mexican Beer for only $5.00 … got to be one of the best deals in town.
Thanks again to our sponsors Corona Beer Cambodia.
I’ll be sure to get a few pics posted on the facebook page later
