Get-Together at The Greenhouse (Via Argentina) Tonight

Nightlife, Bars, and PartyingREMINDER == Tonight's Get Together for Expats at The Greenhouse on Via Argentina near the Einstein Head in Panama City starts at 7:30. I have been asked by the nice woman who runs the Expats in Panama group not to use the name "Expat Social" because they have been promoting events for more than a year under that name. Since this idea originated with the Young Expats in Panama Yahoo Group which is not affiliated with the Expats in Panama group, I think it is a good idea to call these future events by another name. I will be introducing myself to everyone tonight in order to conduct a vote for where the next "event" will take place the following Wednesday. I will also be asking for suggestions for a new name. I will be the shaved head guy who sticks out in the crowd. Hope to see all of you there tonight.

Mystik - Large Club, Nightlife, Partying, Events, Concerts

Nightlife, Bars, and Partying Mystic is currently hot. This is the club that's in front of Crepes & Waffles in Marbella. This venue has changed names so many times its hard to keep up. In Panama the party crowd is very trendy and they migrate from one club to another. Club owners know they periodically have to shut down, redecorate, and change the name to keep things fresh. No one does this more often that the owners of "Mystik," the most recent re-birth of this building which has been used as a club/bar for at least twenty years. Anyway, it's working and now Mystik is out there with a fresh coat of lipstick and a ladies night special. Now the hot-spot for Wednesday nights (since Wasabi got shut down) and always good on the weekends. This is a medium sized club that's full to the rafters at about 750. Lights and sound are good. Currently popular.

Next - Disco, Music, Dancing, Partying, Nightlife, Live Music

Nightlife, Bars, and Partying "Next" is a club on Balboa Avenue in Panama City that has an excellent sound and light system. The crowd is mostly 20-somethings and the venue hosts concerts, dj's, and major events. There's a VIP section upstairs and parking behind the club and on the streets in the area a block or two away. Next is still a popular large club and has a capacity for about 2,000. They recently celebrated their second anniversary and are still going strong. Next has become the venue of choice for large events due to the size and capacity, and the next step up for a concert or live music is the Figali Convention Center. Friday and Saturday nights are always good, during the week if there's an event or concert of some type.

Anti-drug agents from the Judicial Technical Police (PTJ) and the Police Directorate of Intelligence and Investigation (DIIP) of the National Police participated in the investigation. Undercover agents made controlled buys from drug dealers in the discos using marked bills.

300 Minors Detained for Drinking, Wasabi Ordered Closed

Nightlife, Bars, and Partying About 300 minors were apprehended at dawn yesterday in the Wasabi disco located just off of Calle 50 during a joint operation conducted by the Mayor's office and the National Police to control noise and underage drinking. According to the official police report there were minors in Wasabi, prompting the mayor's office to fine the owners $3,000 and order them closed. Police units were called in to control the area and to oversee the return of the minors to their homes, but not before their parents received a summons. "This situation is lamentable. The Mayor's office will fine the owners and start an investigation into why dozens of minors were allowed to enter the bar" said Panama City Mayor Juan Carlos Navarro. The operation began at 9:00 p.m. on Calle 50 and then continued in the area of Calle Uruguay where the owners of six other bars were cited for exceeding noise limits. Also authorities apprehended another 20 minors on Friday.

Nightlife, Bars, and Partying 42 Below: Lord of the Wins. NZ’s super-premium vodka wins gold at the World Spirit Awards(Monde Selection) for the third time (it’s like winning the Best Picture Oscar three years in a row…) It’s another gong show for 42 BELOW, which has scooped a treasure trove of gold for its super-premium 42 BELOW vodka and SOUTH gin at the Monde Selection spirit awards. The Monde Selection is the world’s most prestigious spirit competition. In the 2006 World Selection of Spirits and Liqueurs, 42 BELOW Pure vodka received a Gold Medal and the International High Quality Trophy, awarded to a brand that has won gold three years in a row. This is the first time an Australasian spirit has received such an accolade. 42 BELOW Passionfruit and SOUTH Gin received the top medals in the annual competition, the Grand Gold Medal with Palms – the second time SOUTH has won this award. Chief vodka bloke Geoff Ross says: “I know 42 BELOW is always banging on about all our awards – but it’s hard to be modest about this. This is huge in the beverage world. “Winning the Monde gold for the third time is like taking home the Best Picture Oscar or the Cannes Palm D’Or for three years straight. It’s seriously big time and we’re seriously chuffed.
