Thai hotel reacts to military coup by extending happy hour

first_img THERE’S BEEN A military coup in Thailand, at least the country’s 12th since 1932 and the second in the past decade.It’s the culmination of a push to end what had become a de facto one-party rule.While the movement that led to the coup was not in itself bloodless, there were few reports of violence in the nation Thursday.That, and the sheer volume of past coup attempts the country has lived through, may be why the instructions given to guests of the Le Meridien hotel in Chiang Mai, in the country’s north, were downright dainty. To combat the effects of the nationwide curfew the military has imposed, happy hour has been extended through midnight, and free Wifi will now be available until further notice, according to a flyer posted on Facebook.Read: Thai army seizes power in military coup SpaceX is trying to buy a hamlet inside its Texas rocket-launch site because it ‘did not anticipate’ there’d be any ‘significant disruption’ to residents who live there A car plowed through the main hall of Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, New York See how smoggy downtown LA was the day before Trump is expected to demolish California’s attempts to tackle auto emissions 16-year-old Greta Thunberg met with Obama and chided senators, saying they’re not trying hard enough to fight climate change last_img
