Seems such a long time ag since I blessed this bar with my knowledge of R&B. R&B is without doubt the future, I adore this type of musice, I mean,,,, who the fook are Guns n Roses anyway? Who are The Stone Roses? who says 'The Rollin Stones' are a good band who truely understand a good beat??!! The Rollin Stones smell of fish!! and that Keith Richards isnt PRETTY!! Fook U Charlie Moon!! And Ronnie Watts! ... and the other fooker!! This year I will dance with the moonshine on a sea of mystery. Red Indian chief will guide my vissions! See you all this year my Brothers (Male and female)!!

Twas one hell of a hot and humid day as i slouched against the bar waving the flys away with my rubber wand. A pickled onion rolled along the bar gathering ash, i looked up to see Adam opening the fridge wearing a suit of rusty armour. He bit off an orange breezer cap with his teeth, swallowed it and then dropped the full bottle into the bin. By now things were starting to get nasty as Adam escorted captain rum into the bathroom and ......await the next chapter guys.

i think now, looking back, wearing an octopus wig and smoking a aboriginal pin pipe did suit barnacle bonce adam. i remember mocking this species one morning as he sat smoking dried sea horse s**t. his eyes rolled like a troubled ship in a force 10 gale as i leaned across the bar grabbing my 'next' cigarettes. a tentacle detached from adams wig making its way toward the opened till. like a true pirate his wig was highly trained in till dipping. aaarrrggghhhhhh cried i as i slammed a bottle of cheap rum over adams head!! he landed with an almighty thump in a heap that resembled a nude bernard manning. his octopus wig dived into the sea screaming 'to the sea'... 'to the sea'

michael winner
everyone's a winner !

 

we all claim to know one and we all have a friend of a friend who knows one better than most. i'm not talking about sex monsters who bum people to death in swimming pools whilst under the influence before f**king off to new zealand and hiding, nor do i speak of tramps with cashew nut sized bulb ends who would give their front teeth to be let loose in a pickled onion factory. i am talking about the salt of our earth, british celebrities. i met many celebs whilst working in greece but one encounter stands out above all the rest.

 

multi-billionaire food critic michael winner was spotted dining out in kardamena, kos last year with a group of friends. the port nosed pigs choice of venue did come as a huge shock to me as i was under the impression that jakes restaurant had closed it's doors to the public five years ago.

 

clearly relaxed and sporting a tea bag coloured t-shirt with the slogan "pork stock warrior", sprawled across it mr winner seemed to be in his element as he laughed and joked with the group clearly unaware that his poorly chosen restaurant was closed down in 1998 after reports of bull buggery within the workplace.

 

this is not the first time that jakes restaurant has come under the spot light for all the wrong reasons as in 1991 jake decided to head out along the harbor front to promote the place. a few greek families and bar owners were deeply offended that day as jade walked around with a tray piled full of hotdogs covered in a variety of home made relishes. this may all seem innocent enough but there as an uproar when a bar owner who wishes to remain anonymous tried to take one off jakes tray only to find out much to his horror that the mustard smothered hotdog was attached to jakes body. his trouser fly was unzipped and the unbelievable had become a sordid reality. jake was beaten and locked up over night only to find his restaurant burnt to the ground the following morning.

 

winner who writes a column for the respectable times newspaper ordered a "roast of the day" which consisted of tinned carrots, wafer thin slices of pre-cooked beef, half a cauliflower and a frozen yorkshire pudding the size of a ball bag and a smothering of lukewarm, transparent tasteless gravy. to top this off greedy winner apologized to the group on ordering a second helping of apple strudel as he flossed his teeth with on of his very own silver pubic hairs.

 

renowned for his fine tasted and choices within the restaurant world it comes as a surprise to me why he would choose to dine out in a rat infested back street soup kitchen such as jakes.

 

i would suggest that mr winner should rinse his mouth out in his very own dirty bathwater before taking a toilet brush and scrubbing his teeth with dog s**t. with luck this should resurrect those precious taste buds of his that the nation have grown to depend on.

like a rolling stone
 
if i may take one or two minutes from your valuable time i would like to tell you a story............which took place on a warm summer night in june. the year was 2004 and i was standing outside a packed out bernies bar in greece on a warm saturday night talking the holiday makers into joining us for a drink and quite possibly the best time of their lives. we must have had in a crowd of at least two hundred, bernie and claire were behind the bar pouring out spirits and mixing the cocktails, myself and lee were stood out front drinking gin and tonics, oasis supersonic was blearing out of the speakers, bernie looked out from behind the bar and gave me and lee the thumbs up. i looked up and down the strip at the scores of young holiday makers out here to have their best week of the year hear in kardamina, kos. i smiled to myself and thought how lucky i was to have six solid months of it for the second yeear running. lee, a mitchelin chef by trade had cooked a storm in some of the finest resteraunts all over the world and he was talking me through the making of a corn beef omelette using squid ink and pigs milk. then two figures seemed to stand out from the oncoming holiday makers making their way down the strip, as they come within 100 yards my heart froze and my feet seemed to be cemented to the floor. " jesus f**king christ lee, look whos coming towards us", lee turned his head, then back to me, we stared at each other in disbelief, it was kieth richards and mick jagger form the rolling stones. richards and jagger stopped outside the resteraunt next door and chatted breifly for a second before richards made his way in and sat down at a table. jagger however strutted towards myself and lee, he was wearing blue jeans and a black t-shirt advertising their 40 licks tour which happened back in the 90's, round his neck draped a white silk scarf, his hair was a mess, he had the biggest grin on his face imaginable and his eyes were hiding behind a pair of sunglasses, "where's the bar?" he shouted out before spinning around on one leg and screaming out"catchew" at the top of his voice. i pointed and said, "just there man, what about keith, is he coming in" mick shouted above the music. "he's got the fear man, he's got the fear he'll be in soon, he's just taken too f**king much" with that jagger made his way into the bar squeezing his way through the people as he went, i could not believe it as 'satisfaction', by the man himself blared out much to everybodys delight. there was a "smash" next door in the resteraunt and i looked around to see richards wearing an old leather jacket with a faded picture of an african bull elephant on the back , sat with his head on the table, his hair was a disgrace, like a huge wire wool wig. it looked like he had knocked several bottles of wine off his table which were all over the floor much to the waiters anger. we could be in for trouble i thought, i looked for lee who had made his way into the bar to get a closer look at jagger, who was drinking pints of metaxa 5* brandy at the bar and pretending to play the drums with the familiar ciggerette dangling from his gob. bernie opened up a bottle of moet and sprayed it at everyone who was standing at the bar "who's fookin next?", he screamed out with gun in hand. the whole bar roared and screamed as painted black blared out, a pair of knickers landed on jaggers left shoulder as he guzzled his twelth pint of brandy. i looked to my side and there swaying but still standing was the rock and roll ledgend himself, kieth richards. the guy was hammered, to say he was slightly toasted would be an understatement, richards was burnt on both sides. he looked about 200 years old and stunk of alcohol, in his left hand he was holding a butter knife which he must have stolen from the resteraunt. "if i die i want my liver to be burried seperatly with honours" he slurred. i laughed and patted him hard on the back "come inside kieth and have a drink", i said. as i finished my sentence a pickled onion sized object went shooting through the smoke filled air towards the bar. "f**k" screamed out richards, i turned to face him and instantly it dawned on me what had happened. my pat on the back had dislodged kieths' glass eye which was heading right in jaggers direction. i looked to richards again who was staring back at me with a vacant look in his one remaining eye, i then twigged, i couldn't f**king believe it, the crazy b*****d had a second glass eye. at the pace of a cue ball from an alex higgins break the glass eye headed towards jagger, i prayed to god it would miss him and hit one of the girls standing buy him. luck was not on my side and neither was god for that matter. the glass eye hit jagger on the back of his head and the ciggarette which was dangling from those latex like lips dropped down and landed in his pint of brandy. there was a huge explosion as bernies bar went up in flames along with everybodys spirits, it was an inferno. bernie, claire and lee in toga's were the first ones out as the force of the explosion blew them into the harbour with a huge splash that followed. richards' was on his knees humming brown sugar and looking for his glass eye on the deck, by now his jacket had melted and his hair singed, he looked more like simon western than a rock 'n' roll ledgend. i took off my flat cap wiping the sweat and ash from my brow gazing into the orange flames which had now engulfed the bar. i looked harder into the flames and i could not believe what i saw. more amazing than the past series of events that had just occured, jagger was still at the bar drinking.

see you soon bernie, this ones for you.

twas one late summer evening as i guzzled mythos like it was going out of date, as i sat at the front table of bernies on his retro seating i glanced at the sun dying behind the mysterious mountains, and then it dawned on me, not straight away but very slowly ..... i was a drunken disgrace and i had no idea where i was staying, as per usual.

 
how glad i was to see trombone c**k and putty foot coming at me in an old melon truck.

hello all, bernie here.... i sooooo miss everything and anything to do with kos!! even the sea front b***hing! got engaged in kos last year, had a great holiday too (cheers aussie bill, chris, chris, tatoo pete, simon, hutchy, bobby etc). the resort is dying a death and i think i got out just in time. the lesson to learn is quite simple though 'treat people as you would expect to be treated' too many bars, tour companies, car hire, restaurants etc rip people off!! high prices for a s**t service is so disrespectful and people dont suffer it for long. this is a cancer called 'greed'. 'mr. greed' may seem to be your friend, but the s**ty, foul, putrid taste he leaves behind will come back to haunt you in time!! anyone with any good pics please send to me at borobro@aol.com i love and miss all my greek friends! the people of kardamena are in my heart till i die! i love you all (even the sea front b***hes)!

 
p.s someone take care of the plants!!
