Wristbands and bars
« on: July 18, 2010, 02:07:35 PM »
Could someone please explain about "wristbands" and bars? - have noticed one or two comments about them.
I assume they work abit like a/i in hotels?
We have 4 x twenty somethings with us so if we can save some cash by being loyal to someone we will!
Really liked the Athens bar last year but like the sound of Bar 38/Aquarios too!
Looking fwd to exploring more this year!
Thanks all
Helen

Ok - The wristbands are not for discount, just to I.D. forum members so you can say Hi!!!
Get one from Glen in Aquarios bar, do it up so you can slip it off again
(fasten over wide bit of your hand - they stretch a little bit only),
so you don't have to wear it all the time.

See a wristband - say hello and make a new friend!

Lots of Bars to choose from, my guess is you'll prefer Athens Bar, Condor, Bar38 as more lively!

No Discounts though!!

Gerry James was a complete joke and turned this little corner of a beautiful Greek Island into the worst seedy little UK social club one can ever imagine. He played all the wrong chords with his backing tracks.His patter to the punters was awful and to walk past there while he was murdering some tune or other was a nerve shattering experience. Surely there are Greek musicians around who would have been better suited to entertain than this piece of crap. Or is the owner hoping to get in the sausage egg and chips Brit tourists which he thinks might be in S.S. and thrive on this load of wallop... Sad really... :(

Oh my god Gerry James..........he did our brains in!!! Who told him he can sing??? Does anyone remember him in the 60s, because thats all he kept saying...."when i was in the charts in the 60s".....the worse part was one night I wanted to go back to the room about midnight  and he was serenading me to sleep I swear, cos we were staying at the Barras I SWEAR he was at the end of my bed, he sounded sooo close!!! >:(

We also crossed the road when this singer was on, terrible.  I can understand the slight amusement as you first hear him but eventually you just had to make a run for it.  The strange thing is, the place was packed when he was on (mainly the blue rinse squad mind).   ;)

According to Jerry, he played with every band that were recording in the 1960's. Someone said that if you remember the 60's then you were not there. Well I was there and I am pleased to say I don't remember Jerry James. Thank god. When he is on at the Silver Star We don't venture that far up the village. I just hope he does not venture any further either Summed up in three words

I thinkit was a wednesday night and Jerry wasn't on. Silver Star was packedout and doing a roaring trade.

Meanwhile across the road Bar El Greco was empty apart from the staff, family and Groucho. That guy can really play a guitar. Back to the point. All the customers in Silver Star were turned facing across the road and being well entertained at someone else's expense. There is a lesson in there!
