Hello Gentle Reader,
Easy with the typing today, our heads are pounding here in HK…
Regs and I painted the town red the other night, finding and dancing up a storm in all the best, and the sleaziest too (although that is a separate category, for us at least), nightclubs in Central and in Wan Chai, here in Hong Kong.
Oh, and goodness gracious me, we found the greatest bar ever. It's called the Feather Boa.
They have gold lamé sheeting on the ceiling, densely packed reproductions of old masters, usually with female themes, and great drinks.
There is no name on the outside of the building and no number either.
This is a locals only place.
If you don't know where it is, too bad. You have to be hip to enter.
But, let me get back to the drinks. These were the greatest drinks ever concocted.
The Gun Lake Mojito is a fine, fine drink, but the Feather Boa (the name for the unnamed club) serves drinks in which the martini glasses are entirely coated, on the outside, with chocolate powder.
I was in heaven.
Strangely, nobody else was licking the outsides of their glasses, but these were truly fantastic drinks.
The contents of the glasses were pretty good too. Mango Margarita with chocolate frosting... I mean how more right can you get in this world?
These, my friends, are very fine drinks.
If you visit, and are hip enough, I just might take you out on the town... Andrew and Jennifer in Vancouver, I thought that you guys had to come visit just because of the fantastic door handles and modern Gothic decor in the lobby of our apartment, but Andrew, you need to try these drinks.
Oh, and Cirque du Soleil's new show over in Macau costs about 20% of the price of our tickets in
Chris, Regs, and Pommes
