In Toronto, Khao San Road restaurant in downtown Toronto set out to celebrate the new year with their own version of the Songkran. Patrons were invited to attend a six course authentic Thai dinner at the restaurant and an unforgettable experience where you were going to get wet and wet is an understatement. We were drenched from the moment we sat down. There were water guns in buckets of water placed at each table and patrons and staff alike got into the spirit and really outdid themselves as the water fight was on! It started as boys versus girls; and then front of restaurant versus back; staff vs. patrons and then even friends vs. friends at the same table. I had convinced one of my friends to prick a hole in her water balloon to ensure that it would burst when she threw it. When she used her fork to poke some holes, can you guess what happened? Yes, the water balloon popped all over her and she was drenched. Her reaction was to grab the water bucket at our table and throw it at me.
The water fight would momentarily stop while we ate our courses but very momentarily so you would have to eat your course quickly.
