Ziggy's | David Bowie Themed Bar


Never before has London had a bar inspired by the inimitable David Bowie.

But now that’s all ch-ch-ch-changed.

Welcome to Ziggy’s, opening tonight in Piccadilly’s Café Royal, where Bowie frequently partied back in the day along with Lou Reed, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney. In fact, it’s set up in the very same place where he threw a giant send-off party for his flame-haired alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, back in 1973...

http://laurentatcaferoyal.com/ziggys/

Let us set the scene: The year is 1973. David Bowie retires his dramatic alter ego Ziggy Stardust with a final gig at the Hammersmith Odeon. What follows is a legendary party at Café Royal, a favourite of Bowie’s where he often frequented the restaurants and cocktail bars. Close friends including Mick Jagger, Lou Reed, Paul McCartney, Lulu and many others celebrate at the bash dubbed ‘The Last Supper’.

Evocative of the spirit and splendour of this night, Ziggy’s pays homage to the late great Bowie, 45 years on. The cocktail list is an eclectic mix of classic cocktails reinvented and Bowie’s favoured tipples, all served with lots of glam and a sprinkling of rock n roll. Just like the man himself, the cocktail creations are unique and full of character, from the smooth ‘Tiger on Vaseline’ to the lively ‘Darkness and Disgrace’.

Open until late at the intersection of Mayfair and Soho at Hotel Café Royal, Ziggy’s cocktail bar features a curated gallery of intimate portraits of David Bowie by his long standing photographer and friend Mick Rock. Click here to find out more about the art.

Ziggy’s opens 20 September 2018. Open Mondays to Saturdays, 5pm to 1am.

Not really feeling that

Bowie was all for doing your own thing. I think he would roll in his grave thinking about it.

He was about taking a fashion and putting your own spin on it. Like all the best fashions are.

Ziggy would def be one of my desert island disks

Supra Owen x Hanon Whisky Gold

£10.00 GBP  (they were 140 quid or so)

https://www.hanon-shop.com/collections/hanon-deadstock-clearance/products/supra-owen-x-hanon-whisky-gold-s50055

SUPRA team up with expert retailers hanon on a pair of OWEN sneakers, inspired by the fabled single-malt Scotch whisky of the store’s Scottish homeland. As ever, the store continues along the path of their clean color-blocked aesthetic as seen in their previous collaborations, this time with rich black and gold suede uppers done in homage to rich malted barley. In addition, the collaborative sneaker features a premium blend of silky pig and rugged tonal suede overlays which are offset by a nod to Scottish heritage in the form of a full tartan print collar lining, footbed and tongue backer.

Details continue with a two-way lace system in honor of ’90s skate shoes with either fixed lace loops or punched eyelets offering a second option to the original silhouette, while a sunburst perforation features on the vamp and a full punched perf is applied to the tongue. Dual branding completes the “Special Reserve” theme via a gold leaf deboss logo sign-off which is detailed throughout the upper. hanon’s fire emblem appears on the tongue suede patches while the SUPRA Crown and fire appear on opposing heels, lace aglets and footbeds. Finally each pair comes complete with a custom-built velvet dust bag, dual branded hang tag and three lace sets.

Shot onsite in a whisky distillery, the SUPRA x Hanon OWEN “Whisky Gold” are due for release on July 26 via Hanon’s online store, available in a limited run of 50 pairs.

Anyone thats been to Goa knows what the part scene is like there (the full moon parties are 4 nights and 4 days but they dont need an excuse as every day is a party day) and theres a wide variety of mood enhancers with most peeps like having a concoction of things..

Apart from all the dealers theres 2 very friendly chemists shops about 20 miles from Anjuna tat if you know them you can order whatever you want.

I know someone who would get a load of empty 20mg caps, 50g of pure MDMA powder a bottle of Ket and a 50ml bottle of Sid. And fill the caps with a cocktail.They emded up beimg called London Boys lol But the cops got too expensive.

But the purity there - and whenever Ive neen to Thailand is always very pure. The pills might get different stamps but the same strength. Goes the same for the Acid. Anyone with any street sense gets a bottle of liquid and a dropper. Or a sheet of blotters. Theres not normally many microdots anymore. But the blotters that are the ones with the best rep are Hoffmans. Been around there over 30 years.  ALL the gear you can think of is very cheap there apart from marching powder whish is more expensive than here. And the same nationalities still run the same businesses. Tho the Red Rupee (the Russian money) has certainly made a big impact on the tourist trade with the building of big hotels etc its not the laid back hippy,party capital any more.

But they do have some amazing hash and opium. Peeps make the trip up into the mountains and stay on a farm. Help the farmer bring in his crop amd make the end product and get paid in it. Then take it back south. Get the 1st Temple Balls or Gold Stamp Nepalese and you've done good.

I'm off there next Weds for 4 weeks, Looking forward to getting on my little boat and do some fishing.Hope the monkeys are well behaved the little sods!

Her Name Is Kathryn

The Woman Who Accuses Ronaldo of Rape

An American woman claims Cristiano Ronaldo raped her in Las Vegas. Years ago, the soccer star paid her to remain silent. Now, the woman is going public for the first time and filing a complaint against Ronaldo. She possesses a document that could be extremely dangerous for him. 

By DER SPIEGEL Staff

http://www.spiegel.de/international/cristiano-ronaldo-kathryn-mayorga-the-woman-who-accuses-ronaldo-of-rape-a-1230634.html

 

She was supposed to be invisible, damned to silence. Forever. Nobody was to ever learn about that night in Las Vegas back in 2009, especially not her version of events.

She even signed a settlement deal and received a payoff ensuring that she would never give voice to the accusations.

She signed, she says, out of fear for herself and her family. And out of impotence, the inability to stand up to him. And out of the hope that she could finally put the incident behind her. But, says Kathryn Mayorga, she was never able to close that chapter.

The American is a slender 34-year-old with long, dark hair and green eyes. Until recently, she worked at an elementary school. But she quit, she says, "because I need all my strength now."

She needs the strength to stand up to the man who she accuses of having raped her nine years ago -- accusations that he denies.

The man isn't just anybody. It is Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the best soccer player in the world, with vast amounts of success, money and adoration from the fans. An anonymous woman versus Ronaldo -- the discrepancy could hardly be greater.

They met on June 12, 2009 in a Las Vegas nightclub. Ronaldo was there on vacation with his brother-in-law and cousin. It was the summer when the star, then 24, would transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid for a then-record sum of 94 million euros.

Kathryn Mayorga, 25 at the time, was a budding model and one of her jobs was to hang out with other young, beautiful women in front of bars to lure in guests.

On that Friday in June, the paths of the model and the multimillionaire crossed in the VIP section of Rain, a nightclub belonging to Palms Casino Resort. Paparazzi photos show Mayorga standing close to Ronaldo and talking. He is wearing a white shirt with a narrow black tie and she is in a light gray dress with gold jewelry. He plays it cool while she beams at him. Within hours, the gossip pages around the world would be busying themselves with trying to figure out who this "mysterious brunette" is at Ronaldo's side. The party continued in the early morning hours in Ronaldo's penthouse in the nearby Hotel Palms Place. And only two people know what happened in the bedroom there: Kathryn Mayorga and Cristiano Ronaldo.

What is clear is that the soccer star paid Mayorga $375,000 a few months later as part of an out-of-court settlement. In exchange, Mayorga signed an agreement to never talk about her accusations that Cristiano Ronaldo had raped her.

What was funny was the tourist fan who wanted to see the game and put 'Stamford Bridge' in her Satnav and ended up in Yorkshire. True story.

  These he said she said rape cases are so difficult either way. So many post coitus feelings arising. He must have had his choice ow women at the time. But maybe wanted the one who said no??

We will never know.
