If you thought the first two places I mentioned in the previous post are strange, then think again! Here are several more unique places to visit for your vacation. (Thanks again to the Ottawa Citizen).
Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant — Bangkok, Thailand
The restaurant’s name raises eyebrows, but it’s all for a good cause.
“Don’t be misled by the restaurant’s odd name or put off by the array of contraceptive devices for sale. This very popular place raises funds for the Population & Community Development Association, the country’s family-planning program. The complex is a restaurant, bar, Internet cafe, massage shop, and gift shop all rolled into one. All diners get a condom with coffee, instead of an after-dinner mint.”
I have actually eaten at this restaurant and it is quite beautiful I have to say. They have great Thai food and the service is excellent. We ate at the garden and it was very peaceful. Oh, and the condoms come in two sizes – Thai size and international size. That cracked me up!
Sourtoe Cocktail — Dawson City, Alaska
Anyone with a strong stomach can gain entry into the Downtown Hotel’s Sourtoe Cocktail Club by sipping a drink containing one of the hotel’s preserved human toes. Make it a big sip; rules say your
lips must touch the salted toe.
“So now I am a member of an exclusive club/Of those who drank a toe that was just a shrivelled stub/And then I promptly left the bar/To get my toothbrush and mouthwash and proceed to scrub!”
I do not know if I am adventurous enough to try this drink. Nah, I think I will pass. I’d visit, though, just to see the toe and watch other people try it. Would you take a sip?
