    Pattaya’s first St Patrick’s Day Parade announced

    Pattaya’s first St Patrick’s Day Parade announced


    Pattaya will be holding its first St. Patrick’s Day parade on 17th March.

    At a press conference on Thursday at the Father Ray Foundation, the parade was announced to the gathered media who were told that the parade will take place along Pattaya Beach Road and the money raised at the event will go to the Fountain of Life and Father Ray Foundation.

    With a strong Irish ex-pat community and an abundance of Irish-themed bars around Pattaya, organizers believe the time is right to organize the event which will mirror similar parades in cities such as Dublin, New York, Belfast, London and Sydney.

    The parade will begin at 1.30pm in front of Pattaya Beach Soi 4 and will finish in front of the Alcazar Theater on Pattaya Second Road.

    To register a float it will cost 5,000 Baht and for more information please contact Derrick at the Freedrop Bar on 087 613 5797.

    Will they be dressing up Thai midgets as leprechauns like the Irish Bar down Nana?

    That always seemed classy.

    Will they have any draught Guinness. It's supposedly out of stock at the main importers office, with a new delivery due on 20th March!! There's a shortage in Chiang Mai at the moment.

    Never sure about St. Pats day? back in the west it was MAss, small parade and a few pints (never friging green).

    No expert in Irish pubs in Thailand but the few I went never found anyone born within 2000 miles of Dublin.

    Green Man in Cholong had a handful of brits. But mostly arsenal supporters so no point in talking to them! Any watering holes around Phuket were MAn U supporters hand out.?

    Apparently I have to spread it around before I can give anymore to FREEDOM?!!!!
    Ill try.
    Anyway nice post.

    Joke:

    Catholic Paddy is out late on a dark cold night on his way home from the pub. To save time he decides to take a short cut through the proddy area of town. Then in a very deserted and dark lane, he feels a gun in his back and a menacing voice asks" ar yi Catholic or Protestant? In a moment of sheer genius he replies "Jewish"

    A long silence ensues then he hear's the deep menacing voice reply " Allah be Praised"

    Have a Good One and may the Craic be Great>

    Scientific Proof that Guinness Tastes Better in Ireland

    Sort of knew this since mi grandad told me.

    Untold millions of pints of Guinness Draught will be consumed around the world today (March 17), but none of those will taste as good as those downed in Ireland. That Guinness tastes better in its home country is a long-held claim (and tourism slogan), but now there is science – or close enough to it – to support the legend.
    The findings, which were published in the March 6 issue of the Journal of Food Science, come from the substantial efforts of a four-man team of international scientists. First, the crew received formal instruction at the Guinness brewery in Dublin on how to craft Guinness' "Perfect Pint." They then set out, testing Guinness at random bars in random countries for the next year, totaling 103 tastings in 14 countries (42 tastings in Ireland; 61 outside of Ireland).
    The testing protocols were rigorous. Upon stepping into a pub, the tester would record the pub conditions and ambience and take the establishment's temperature using a digital thermometer. They would then note the pubtender's experience, whether he or she was of Irish origin and whether he or she had ever received formal instruction on how to craft a "Perfect Pint" of Guinness.
    A stopwatch was used to time the length of the pour, and the tester noted the number of pours and whether the tap pulling order met the Guinness guidelines, as well as whether a shamrock design was drawn in the foam. After the beer had sat for two to three minutes, the beer's core temperature and head height were measured.
    Once the tester had sipped the beer to the top of the Guinness logo, he recorded three sensory measurements on a scale of 0 to 100: mouth feel (creaminess), flavor (soft or bitter), and aftertaste (short to long). These measurements were combined to produce a "Guinness overall enjoyment score," or GOES.
    After analyzing the data and adjusting for researcher, pub ambience, Guinness appearance and the three sensory measures, the team found statistically significant evidence that Guinness tastes better and is more enjoyable in Ireland (with a GOES of 74.1) than outside (a GOES of 57.1). This lends some support to the claim that the beer does not travel well, and that pourers outside of Ireland do not give it the proper respect when filling a pint.
    The reasons, the scientists write, could be many. The overall atmosphere of pubs in Ireland was rated higher, which the data showed had some effect on overall enjoyment. There's also what they call the "line" theory: The regularity at which pints of Guinness are pulled in pubs in Ireland ensures that customers are receiving fresh beer straight from the barrel, rather than stuff that's been sitting in the connecting tubing.
    Finally, they note that Guinness is served in 100 countries and brewed in 50, often using local ingredients, including the water. Therefore, one could argue that Guinness brewed outside Dublin can never taste the same as the home brew.
    The samplers confess that none of the four is a professional tester. They were, however, able to exclude potential outside influences, such as the presence of women (possibly leading to an overestimation of enjoyment). Before each testing session, the researchers noted the number of women in the bar but, in examining their data, they did not find an association of female presence and tasting scores. "Hence, women did not have a confounding effect on the outcomes, nor did their beauty inflict any unplanned blinding of the testers, who were all dedicated to the measurements," the group wrote.
    In the end, the scientists point to evidence that no matter where you consume your pint o' Guinness, it's only as good as the company you keep.
