Democrats Abroad Thailand "Dinner for Victory" -- February 2nd -- 7:00 p.m. -- Ruen Tong Restaurant

The Democrats Abroad Thailand (DAT) will be holding a “Dinner for Victory” on this coming Saturday evening, February 2, at the Ruen Tong Restaurant, starting at 7:00 p.m. The Ruen Tong restaurant serves some of the most delicious Thai cuisine that I have tasted in my almost 20 years living in Bangkok, and we have negotiated unlimited free corkage so that you can bring your favorite bottle of wine with you!

This is THE MAJOR fundraiser before our DA Global Primary for DAT to secure the resources that we need to run our advertisements for the Primary, to rent venues to hold our polling stations, and to pay for the other expenses that we have in bringing the right to vote in the Democratic Primary to your home computer, or local polling site. PLEASE come and support DAT while enjoying excellent food, cheer, and company of your fellow progressive Americans! The cost for the entire evening is a very affordable 1000 baht per head. Alcohol is not included – as noted above, corkage is free for wine that you bring yourself – but beer and other drinks are available for order.

Please RSVP by email to, indicating how many persons will come. We will collect the donation at the restaurant.

DAT has reserved a private room on the second floor of the restaurant. Ruen Tong is located at 517/9 Naratiwat Rachanakarin (written as it sounds – transliterated on official maps, etc. it usually is written Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra!), Chong Nonsi, in Yannawa district, and the phone is (02) 681-1284 or (02) 681-1285. It is at the mouth of Naratiwat Rachanakarin Soi 30. For a scanned file with map that you can show a taxi driver, contact us at the email below and we will send it to you.

Ruen Tong is located across the street from the famous (original location) Tawandaeng Brewery, where Naratiwat Rachanakarin meets Rama 3 Road. Naratiwat Rachanakarin is the road that runs from Suriwong down to Rama 3 and the river crossing Silom and Sathorn as it does so. The closest BTS stop is Chong Nonsi, but you will have to get a taxi from there (a little short of a kilometer and half to the restaurant from BTS). If you get lost, call Phil Robertson, DAT chair, at (085) 060-8406 and I will tell the taxi driver how to make sure you arrive safely!
