The Island Bar seems to have reacted quickly to the embarrassing typo and put up a different poster. :roll:

<img src="http://www.Lamma.com.hk/forum/images/Lamma-Gung/Island-Bar-SARS.gif" border=1 align=left hspace=10>Their (mildly amusing) explanation for what SARS really means:
"Sitting Around on a Regular Saturday"...

P.S. Just met Luciene on Main Street this Monday morning. She didn't even KNOW about the poster, so the "Undalla" mispelling isn't her fault at all. But she might get it fixed now. :lol:

She's so busy dragonboating this week and packing for her big (permanent) move to Thailand this weekend. :cry: :cry:
The Latino party actually doubles as her public farewell party! The "returning" Keith will take up the Manager position in the Island Bar.

The posters for the BIG Latino Night tonight keep on multiplying and popping up all over the place. Three different ones so far, the latest one abusing Clint Eastwood's photo and a quote, but from different movies. :lol:

All has been revealed, after asking a few people. The Island Bar has nothing to do with that atrocious "Undalla!" spelling mistake, as they have nothing to do with the posters. Take a bow, Karl Kinsman from the Lamma Dragons boys team! He designed all the posters !! :D

(There have been a lot of great posters by Harry for the Island Bar over the years. I'm trying to get them for another Lamma Artist e-zine feature...)

See you at the BIG party tonight, it's even frequently promoted on the radio!

At least they have some form of a 'tight-arse' Tuesday arrangement (Standard Chartered nights)...

Last monthly Quiz Night by Frazer who's leaving Lamma & HK.
Last chance to "pit your wits against the sweaty, shouty Quizmaster", according to Harry's poster below. I wonder if somebody will continue this Lamma tradition?

Great bar. So inviting it's difficult to pass by without dipping in ones toe... :D

<center>A Close Shave for Charity!</center>

Had a close shave recently? Or do you know someone who either wants or deserves one? If so, bring them (or lure them) to The Island Bar on Saturday 15th January!

That’s the day designated for a hirsute tidy-up before Chinese New Year, and in support of the OSC/ Tsunami Relief Fund. Come into the bar from 3:00pm onward and watch some of your favourite beards, goatees, moustaches and at least one pony tail get the chop for charity.

We already have a few (un)willing participants who are donating their personal hairlooms but more would be welcome. So come along and participate if you need a trim!

We also welcome participants for sponsorship. Goodness knows, we wouldn’t want to fall a hair’s breadth short of a complete success.

Don’t worry if you are of the gender which cannot or will not sport a sprout, you can buy someone else’s beard (goatee, etc) in its entirety, and it can be yours to redesign as you like (for the highest bidder).

Or, if you feel like being a bit more modest in your expenditure and just fancy a follicle or two, you can make a donation and still get a slice of the pie, errrm, hair and take it in turns to trim the furry beasts on display.

Whether by sponsorship of a few strands or by dedicated mortgage to a whole head, your dollars will make the difference to this collection for the OSC/Tsunami Relief Fund.

<center>Saturday 15th January – 3:00pm
The Island Bar(ber Shop) will be open for customers.

Sharon's report on the birthday bash for The Queen's 80th birthday at the Island Bar was crisp, colourful and to the point.

Re Search for Union Jack, ever tried any of the following? Here are a few suggestions:

1. British Consulate General
2. Procol Division of SAR Government
3. The Hongkong Volunteers (Arthur Gomez)
4. Hongkong Club
5. HSBC/Chartered Bank
6. Amateur Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong (ASF&OC)/ Timothy Fok

If Sharon starts looking around just now, she might be able to get hold of one before The Queen's official birthday in June.

Best of luck!

Just caught that amusing photo of a slighly bemused President Gloria Macagapal Arroyo heading straight from the ferry to the Island Bar for a San Miguel beer. What year was the visit and presume those unsmiling Filipino chaps behind her are her less-than-scary security guards. Also, did she arrive on a scheduled ferry?
