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’.
Come and watch the Live Belgian Grand Prix at Charlie Harper’s Bar, this coming weekend, Saturday 28th August. Starts from 6:30pm.
We’ll be taking a few bets, and enjoying wonderful Belgian recipe of Ground Beef with Peppercorns together with a Cream and Brandy Sauce … Tastes better than it sounds!!!
As always, free shots and good company
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
Well it happened, and it was a pretty good night (even though I do say so myself!).
It was a struggle to get the builders out, in fact they were still doing last minute installation of the canopy lights once the party had started! All good though and we were really impressed and pleased by the turnout from the local expat community, couldn’t really keep an accurate count (as the beer was flowing pretty well), but there was easily at least a couple of hundred people that passed through during the night. Really great to see all of them, old friends and new.
Music was supplied by a live band, who unfortunately were let down by technical issues so sadly couldn’t perform at there best. The food though received many compliments and 3 huge pots of Chicken Korma, Vindaloo and a Chili disappeared almost as fast as they were put out!
The drinks too, went down well, even after the Free Beers supplied by Corona Beer Cambodia and Anchor Beer had long gone! Many thanks, once again, to our sponsors for there support, we really look forward to working with them again.
Anyway, here’s a few pics of the night …..
Charlie Harper’s is organising a trip up to the Angkor Brewery this coming Wednesday, if you’re in town and available we reckon it’ll be a fun few hours.
Meeting at 2pm Wednesday 3rd August, at Charlie Harper’s Bar on Ekareach Street, we’ve then arranged for free transport as required and we’ll be heading up to the Brewery around 2:45.
Hope you’re keeping the day free … it could be a long one!
Had word yesterday that the event will be supported by those kind people at Corona, this means there’ll be more than a few Corona Extra ‘giveaways’ on the evening
Been in touch with a few others too and waiting replies …
I’ve spoken with many people who are interested in playing or learning to play Texas Hold’em Poker whilst in Sihanoukville. Thing is, some find getting past their initial interest a little daunting with high stakes and an ‘ultra’ competitive table.
To this end, we’ve decided to turn our regular Tuesday night game into a ‘Novice Night’, consider the $5 entry payment to the School and you’ll be sure to learn a lesson or two no matter which way the cards fall. Since it’s a ‘freeze-out’ game, you can’t lose any more than that.
Once you’re comfortable, you can move up to the ‘Shark Pool’
Join us and enjoy the Rugby World Cup spectacle here at Charlie Harper’s, there’ll be Special Offer, ice cold, beers and a Barbecue on the go before every match.
Main thing though, you’ll be sharing the event with like-minded Rugby fans from a variety of Rugby mad nations! It’s going to fun!
Work is cracking on at Charlie Harper’s with much of the effort being concentrated on the rewiring of the whole building, with 19 rooms, a poker room, bar, kitchen as well as the outside dining area, that’s quite a task!
The storms over the past few days successfully managed to ‘tear down’ the old Canopy at the entrance to the hotel, luckily no other damage was done and since we’d already made provision for an entirely new Canopy to be erected around the whole bar and hotel, it doesn’t add any extra costs.
Good news is that the poker tables (well one) is finished and has been given a test run or two and looking good, so if you’re looking for a friendly game (using casino quality chips NOT cash) call on down.
