    We have reservations for tables in the "Gallerie", specifically an area upstairs so that we are above the main crowd, from 11 am until 2:30 pm.

    Each ticket includes:

    • A reserved seat in the “Gallerie”

    MASH Craft Brews and Bites in Bangkok, Thailand

    Ladies Night with Democrats Abroad Bangkok

    This is a chance to meet other US citizens in Bangkok who give a damn about the attack on women and over-all decline in equality, justice and human rights in the US. An evening full of good political banter among friends with a side of plotting against the patriarchy.

    This event is open to all genders- because anyone can be a feminist and join the Women's Caucus, however, it is buy 1 get 1 beer free for the ladies- MASH rules not ours.

    We will be located on the second floor. Feel free to spread the word and bring friends. Meghan, Secretary of Dems Abroad Thailand will be on hand to talk about the institution, upcoming primaries and answer any questions you have on how to get more involved.

    This is a monthly affair- see you there.
