Club El Rico – Odessa

April 8, 2009

Found on Dobrovolsky in the city centre, Club El Rico opened it’s doors to the public in 2005.

I have called it a club…….although it is not what you would call a nightclub……or a bar……or a restaurant……..but somewhere within all three.

What?

Ok, I will explain.

It seats only 60 people…….so not a nightclub similar to those I have already written about, which can host 1000 plus people……although it has a dance floor/performance area.

It is a restaurant……..but it isn’t because of the live entertainment………which some of you will be pleased to know will be covered in a few paragraphs time…….which is not always conducive to watching when eating……as food will probably fall from your open mouth!!

It is not a bar……..because the food it fairly good and like I say, it seat 60 people.

The menu is what you can term “European” although heavily Spanish orientated.

The music has a wide variety depending upon which night you go and covers the Drum & Bass, Blues, Latino, Electro Pop, Hip-Hop, Disco and Dance spectrum.

There are also various acts which……….yes you’ve been waiting a few days now……includes strippers!!!!!!!!!!

It’s actually not  bad little place, as long as you can cope with tits in your Tortilla and nipples in your Neapolitan.

Eh?………What do you mean that wasn’t worth the wait and you’re off to another blog!!!……Hang on………………

Ok……….so you’ll be reading again tomorrow then.

First Biker Rally of the Year In Odessa – Summer is Coming!!

April 8, 2009

Well…….due to other commitments, your roaming Odessa reporter has forgotten to inform you that last Sunday, the first “Biker Rally” cruised down through Pushkinskaya……although why they always chose Pushkinskaya is beyond me as it is a 19th Century cobbled street about 3 kilometers long.

Not only will it play havoc with the suspension, but can’t be conducive to actually staying on the bike…….as it is not exactly going to be a “smooth ride”!!!

Now the number of Bikers is nothing like you would get in the USA or the UK…….but there were 40 or so and it is a sure sign that summer is on it’s way.

Obviously, being a Brit, I am a bit of a Norton and Triumph fan…….but I have to admit to a serious liking to Harley Davidson’s………particularly the “Fat Boy” styles which are more comfortable to sit on than my own settee!!

biker-2

What?……..No, you can keep your Fireblades and Ninja’s…..a few hours sat on one of those is like being put into an “interrogation position” experienced in my old Army days during “Escape and Evasion” exercises……give the old man something suitable…….like the comfy armchair on wheels which is Harley!!

……..Oh and reader, don’t give up hope……..tonight, if I get time, there is another Odessa strip club revue coming up!
