Well over a hundred Scandinavians of all ages swooped Sunday evening 19 October 2014 in on the popular Danish restaurtant Stable Lodge in Sukhumvit Soi 8 in Bangkok to help the owner, Steffen Ingemann celebrate the 22nd Birthday of the hotel. Unfortunately, Steffen’s wife Khun Nim was not able to join as she was in London helping their daughter Pailin settling in.
True to tradition, Steffen had put up an old Danish milk bucket, where the guests were supposed to drop in 22 Baht before they proceeded to the well stocked BBQ buffet. This reporter could, however, name several guests who ‘forgot’ to do that – but otherwise seemed to enjoy the buffet working it several times over.
Offsetting the forgetful, Stable Lodge seemed to do a brisk business on beer and wine and – apart for a light drizzle of rain – in general probably made a good impression on the many first-timers who may then hopefully return for more some day in the future.
Lights around the pool and live music completed yet another nice birthday party for the old lady.
