Victory Parties in Bangkok - November 5, 2008

Come and join Democrats Abroad Thailand to celebrate what will be a historic victory for Barack Obama, and for Democrats in the House and Senate, on Wednesday, November 5th in Bangkok!

There are two events that will be taking place on that day.

First, there is an invitation-only “Election Watch” event being sponsored by the US Embassy which will take place in the ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Erawan (Ratchadamri Road, near Chitlom Skytrain station) from 7 AM to 2 PM. DAT has negotiated and received a limited number of invitations and we are opening these up to DAT members on a first come, first served basis. DAT must provide a list of attendees to the Embassy so we need to hear from you no later than the morning of 30 October 2008. RSVPs must include the full name and email address of the DAT member (sorry, non-members cannot be accommodated) and must be sent to For those who met the deadline before our quota from the Embassy fills up, we will send you a formal invitation that you must print out and take to the Hyatt, along with photo ID (passport). DAT will have a table at the event, which will include big screens, inter-a ctive activities, and DAT give-aways (a free t-shirt every time a selected swing state is called for Obama-Biden!). Since the Embassy is also inviting senior Thai officials and civil society representatives, and other diplomats, DAT members who attend are requested to dress professionally. (Who knows, members of the royal family might attend.)

The other, less formal event is the DAT Victory Party which will be ongoing at the Roadhouse Barbecue from 9 AM and continuing all day (and evening!). Chef Dana will have breakfast ready and happy hour prices all day for DAT members and friends – so please join us any time during the day to watch the election results, hear the commentary, and celebrate the movement of American Democrats that we have built in Thailand, the US, and around the world. There is no need to RSVP for the Roadhouse event – just come along at any time – you will no doubt be able to locate us just by the cheering. The Roadhouse is located at the corner of Rama 4 and Suriwong Roads, walking distance from the Sala Daeng BTS stop. There is a map on the web site (

We look forward to seeing you, and celebrating with you, on November 5!

With best wishes,
