Angeles City Blue Boar Inn

Angeles City Blue Boar Inn
Chuck Wow recommended I come and interview a Blogger called “Harry the Horse” here in Angeles City, Philippines. My Thailand girlfriend flies from Clark to Bangkok, Thailand tomorrow so here I am.

I know diddle about Harry, however something about a person living in Angeles for years is intrinsically interesting.

What is a Blue Boar?

Angeles City Blue Boar Inn, the Hotel I think owned by Harry the Horse.

Harry the Horse
I kind of doubt I will interview him on this one night trip to Angeles to drop the Thailand girl off at the airport. The trip from San Fernando, La Union by bus took five hours of misery to get here.

Angeles City Philippines Hotels

I guess you can call this Hotel anything, just do not call it late for supper.

Is this the Blue Boar Inn or the Hotel La Casa, nonetheless I think I am in both places with a double room with AC for 900; there are many cheaper fan rooms. Truly, Angeles City Hotels are cheaper or half price compared to Manila.

The Philippines has 7107 islands and Angeles City is not on the water and had nothing to do with Angels. Do we really want a Blue Boar in La Casa…?



Easy to find, you take a Tricycle Taxi for about 150 Peso from the Bus stop to the USA, VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) post, then ask until someone points you around the corner. This Angeles City Hotel has WIFI free and is probably more expensive than many around it that have swimming pools.



Beware of Owner sign as we enter Hotel La Casa.



Hmm, this business card says,
“Hotel La Casa Pension”

I think he is trying to put keywords into signs and his business cards, he is offline SEO.

I will spend the night, and then go return to San Fernando to the Bali Hai East Resort to work on my tan by the swimming pool tomorrow. I will resume my query, “What is a resort?”

I will talk to Harry the Horse later in the:
Blue Boar Inn
Hotel La Casa
or
Hotel La Casa Pension

Harry the Horse is a long time resident expat in Angeles City. He puts out a monthly newsletter / gossip sheet / scam alert / and posts it online at:

Im sure hell be an interesting interview for you. He knows all the ins and outs of Angeles and is a great source of knowledge on SCAM artists, Police Corruption, etc and can tell you HORROR stories of shake downs, false imprisonment and violent crimes against tourists. Be careful out there.

Enjoy your visit!

I cant imagine Harry ducking out on a interview. He may be in Guam with his adopted son getting papers and whatnot.

Ask staff for directions to DMZ bar for a interview with TICK a Bar owner over 25 years in AC and RayMachine Gun Kelly about his views on owning a bar and the ups and downs. I bet he has a UP view even if he was shot last year. . This is a time to steal a bar in AC. ?

Stay a extra day you could milk 6 month worth of interviews in this place. Start a the VFW and move down to Kokomos. Bring a recorder and a bunch of pencils

The Swagman Staff for a real inside look.

I talked yesterday with Harry the Horse and will return in about 3-4 weeks to do a video interview with him.

I think Tick has sold the bar and moved back to the USA, there is some question about his health also.

I am dropping off my Thai girlfriend, this occupies my brain, it will be better if I return and interview a few people. I wanted to know the conditions here, and now I know, all is easy and convenient.
