Brought Werewolf out of retirement for a little Bangkok nightlife update:
Billboard - yes, been there. It's Carousel with a hot tub added. The girls were dirty (in a good way).
DC-10. Same night. Stopped in for a drink. Forgettable.
The Beer carts in the center of Nana Plaza are what they are I guess. I haven't been to them.
For beer bars, pick from about 7 of them stretched along Soi 4 from Morning Night, through Strickers, to the newest one across from Golden Bar (dunno the name). They are usually full of both girls and customers.
I'm in Soi Cowboy regularly. Looks to be full of Yanks & other white faces. It's heaving most nights; at least in the main bars. Most of the bars are half or full nude these days at Cowboy, which I like.
Chiang Mai is a nice town, with a reasonable night life. The pay for play is limited, but doable. I hooked up with two girls there... one a serious cutie that I barfined almost nightly, the other a spot-pick up from a beer bar for 1,000 baht. The price is right. They also have three fish bowl massage places.
BigDummyKenny.com just got a short write up on Sutthisan Road, which is generally accurate -- more so if you read the comments at the end. At one-price 1,500 (bar fine & tip) for the girls, it's a hassle free, low cost option.
