FINALLY! YSW gets a public pool table again! The last one, I think, was on the 1/F above that clothes shop on Nick's Corner, vis-a-vis Cath's Bar, the same flat where the Love's Dance Studio is opening up this weekend.

1/F of Prime Bar & Rest. just got a pool table! No info yet on the cost - free for guests, I hope - and how long you can play or how much you need to order from the bar downstairs before they throw you out. ;-)

Somebody commented on this picture on the Prime Facebook page
"That bloke looks like a right formidable opponent."
But did he really set up the balls wrong, as somebody claimed?

There are many different games you can play on a pool table.
But in most, like 8-ball, the cue ball should be the white, not yellow.

Photos from yesterday, exploring the new pool table of Prime Bar & Grill, after enjoying their new really delicious daily special of African Chicken.
Plus their perfectly seasoned hummus with home-baked garlic bread (new appetizer), the best hummus I've tasted in a long time.
Plus their new Crème brûlée, expanding their formerly most modest range of desserts.

By the way, the balls were set up correctly on their new, red pool table in their photo above with the "formidable opponent" (I've checked), but they've replaced the yellow cue ball with a more traditional, white one now.

Is anybody up to teaching me during daytime? Free games and drinks for my teacher!
I'm only familiar with the 3-ball, no-sinkholes billiard and haven't played in decades, but would love to start again!

Kris, the former "Official Court Glutton" of the Lamma-zine, has joined the staff, taking over from Richie, and he'll be managing the place.
So we're looking for a new Glutton to do food reviews of Lamma restaurants! Anybody?

First Thanksgiving dinner poster I've seen this year.

Who else is offering this traditional US feast? Promotional posters & info are most welcome in this topic, open to ALL Lamma restaurants. We need more info before we decide where to eat on Thursday night!

The end of Diesel's, the end of an era in YSW's (bar) history, just confirmed by Joyce herself (while picking up my Lamma 2014 Calendars on sale in Diesel's)!

Sat, Dec 7, from 3pm: Closing down party, everybody welcome, live music by some Diesel's regulars (Bearded Ukuladies, anyone?)

Despite valiant efforts by some patrons and friends over several years, the building is finally going to be knocked down in the next few weeks, to be replaced by 2 Village Houses, side by side. The rebuilding of Main and Back Street continues relentlessly, about 8 rebuildings in progress right now or starting soon.... Plus over 9km of additional sewage pipes to be dug up over the next 5 years, going up close to almost every building in North Lamma (except Pak Kok).... Plus the starting-soon Bike Park construction.... Plus the harbour reclamation plans seemingly being revived by Govt.... Sorry for my rambling....

The illegal raised area outside Diesel's entrance and the wall around it will all be torn down and lowered to street level, widening the street considerably. No more watching Main Street life from an elevated level. Expect major congestion on Main Street and around their neighbours - the waffle shop and the new Turkish Pizza House - for quite some time.

Joyce is encouraging her loyal, long-time patrons to continue partying vis-a-vis in Jing Jing till she's found a new location for her bar which might take some time....

Your best memories and photos of Diesel's, please? Let's put together a photo gallery and archive of stories!

Oh what Joy!! Sigh.....

So LG, as someone who either hikes or bikes all of the paths on this fair isle....... where should I move to that is quiet???
If I move to Tai Peng or Po Wah Yuen, I miss most of the construction, noise, headache (I'm assuming) but I will be woken in the middle of the night by some B@#$rd chopping down incense trees! :-(

Haha, that was my quote. I learned from a visit to Liverpool of all the variations in pool as my best friend lost game after game to a Scouse guy we were on a pub crawl with.

For more about the 2.5 years history of trying to Save Diesel's from closing down.

Please post or submit photos of Diesel's last night, especially photos of "Drinking and Shouting and Crying and Singing"!

(The last ferry leaves at 9:10pm (8:35pm on Sundays) to Pak Kok. I didn't get any band pictures.)

Photos by Parksy of Diesel's very last night, yesterday, Dec 10, 2013.
Plus a few comments from many patrons:

"Nnnnnooooooooooooo!!!!!!

I don't believe it.

Good old days indeed. Many many many many many wonderful nights spent there. It will remain in my heart.

God bless Diesels - this place holds such many memories of such wonderful times spent with such wonderful people xxx

I worked in the bar for about a year and a half and can't remember nothing, apart from the parties which now I think about it went on for about a year and a half!!!!

Oh!!! Really??!!! I don't even know!!!! Ohhhhhh.....

Such good memories :))))

Ha ha! I remember Izzy (aged 3 or maybe 4) walking into Diesels and stating very loudly "this is Aunty Danielle's house".

I wanted them doors... bugger

Hottest bar in Lamma x

I had in there so many good times of which i have no recollection at all!

Need a flash on yer camera, Parksie

It would have woke them all up, the ones that weren't crying in their beer that is

So long and thanks for all the beer

Good luck for the future, Auntie Joyce (aka St Joyce of Yung Shue Wan)

Police outside, helpless, no threats left, place is ripping:"

Blog post by Susan Sherman: Diesel's in the Dust:

"Hedonists and hipsters gathered for their last drink at Diesel's on Tuesday night...

...On the last night we mingled, danced, ate and told stories of the times we spent there - all kinds of good and bad. We remembered how we laughed, cried, danced, fought and sang. We remembered how we joked, bantered, debated, discussed and argued our way out of insanity and back.

A haiku to commemorate the death of Diesel's:

Vortex of energy
Swirling in oblivion
Diesel's in the dust
"




Plus a photo gallery and story of the art gallery that was in there before Diesel's:

"The Shue T'ing Gallery was a collaborative projects by a group of Lamma Island artists who founded a Hong Kong registered society of artists known as iOTA.
After two months of renovation work the gallery opened its doors on the 22nd of December 1995..."
