    The guy in flyers never paid his rent, the sound of jack hammers is preperation for new storm drains they are putting in.

    Does anyone know for sure what's going to be built there? It is a large area to develop.....and I don't see how a mall is needed. It's not like we lack a mall or 10.

    Whilst WS is a shit hole, it's a shit hole with character. I for one will be sad to see it go.

    He hasn't made any improvements to the place in years because the whole block is going to be demolished. Can't say I blame him. Hope he relocates to nicer area. The restaurant was the only bright spot in that Washington Square s***hole.

    Marmite, Sabang and myself were down there the other day and had a great lunch in the Silver Dollar.

    Although WS was never an area I frequented regularly I always enjoyed spending the odd afternoon floating from bar to bar and seeing the local "long termer" characters.

    WS has been on the chopping block for years, as has Nana Plaza and Walking Street in Pattaya and as a resident of Pattaya I would love to see them get rid of Walking Street.

    I know that the local Indian Sikh community have put a stop to the tearing down of Walking Street and I have been told that they control most of the land around WS so expect that it will remain as it is until they can get the sale prices they demand.

    Yep an a friend of mine (Alex) had a nice big bar right at the back of the complex.

    He spent a fortune on doing it up and he lost everything including documents, passpot etc in one foul swift move.

    usually they dont if your with another female....

    but I have been surretiously smacked on the back of the head as I walk passed pretending not to know them.

    the other howler, was the time they were all speaking Issan, unfortunately the missus did also, for some reason they thought she couldnt.

    it was candid, and I had some explaining to do that evening!
