I will not be going to a bar where people can bring their dogs. Not because I hate dogs, but because I have a grudge against dog owners.

Ditto, some people recommended the one place on Montros, and two people (total) wanted to go there. Several (including a few lurkers I know personally) would prefer it be in the village, since it's centrally located and a few people from the TMC are interested in participating.

JTtheCajun - Hell yeah. The more the merrier. Particularly if you bring chicks.

Right On, I live just down the street from the Village, Baker Street and Bronx Bar are Where its at
 
2004-07-01 11:54:54 AM
Erm. Make that Montrose.

what's wrong with dog owners?
 
2004-07-01 12:00:45 PM
Awesome! July 10 is my birthday!

Any ladies volunteer to entertain the birthday boy?
 
2004-07-01 12:01:25 PM
Whatever. Rice Village has about as much flavor as a communion wafer.
 
2004-07-01 12:02:47 PM
Don't get me wrong - I hate very few of you, foxboxchic. My particular distaste for dog owners stems from the few who are of the mindset that everyplace is a place their dog can go and that their dogs can do no wrong. A particular incident wherein some dumbarsed dog woman's pet peed on the duffel bags of several people on my team cemented my casual loathing. Her response when confronted? "Aw, he's just a cute puppy." Then she laughed. It took all my personal restraint to keep from whipping it out and peeing on her.

Unfair? Definitely. But I can't be bothered to care about such things.
 
2004-07-01 12:03:24 PM
No one's making you join us, Ditto, but you're welcome to come along to the merriment.
 
2004-07-01 12:03:30 PM
maybe we could spice things up at mary's in montrose



......ok, sorry
 
2004-07-01 12:08:16 PM
really, I'm sorry

I know those people. She probably got tired of it when he was no longer a "puppy" and dumped him at the nearest shelter.
I know my dog's shortcomings, trust me. All of mine go to the kennels when I throw a party, my female is definately not a trustworthy individual when it comes to food, and I go all out on the cooking!

Does the Gingerman sell booze? I vote for booze.
 
2004-07-01 12:20:18 PM
Sherlocks anybody?
 
2004-07-01 12:24:42 PM
I guess it depends on how big these things are, I was out of town for the last one. But for my money, I like the Harp on richmond.

KelVarnsen: "Does the Gingerman sell booze? I vote for booze."


Not sure, but if Ditto shows up, there'll apparently be plenty of whine.

/because someone had to do it...
 
2004-07-01 12:32:58 PM
Count me in if this thing is happening in the village or downtown. I'll bring some other farkers too.

they have a wall of a billion beers. well, maybe not a billion, but there's alot!
 
2004-07-01 12:44:18 PM
And of course, Alcoholic_entropy, you have to plan this while I am in vacation. bastard.

DrBenway, forgive me for pointing out how boring and uncreative the Houston Fark Party Participation group is.
 
2004-07-01 02:01:06 PM
Let's go to the kind of place where women dance on tables. Sure, Thangle won't be around to instigate such things, but then again, she's not all that coordinated to begin with and we'll be spared the ER visit. Hopefully we can find some top-heavy volunteers to take her place.
 
2004-07-01 02:17:44 PM
Ditto, it's because we really don't care where the party's at, as long as theres beer and boobies.
 
2004-07-01 02:17:57 PM
Well, I live down in Clear Lake and have never bar-hopped (or even hung out) in the Rice Village area, so I have no opinion to offer on whether any of these places are any good or not. But, maybe my hubby and I will make it to this one... I'm still invited if I'm married, right?? ;)

Just out of curiousity, what kind of age group do we have for this fark-party?
 
2004-07-01 02:37:10 PM
bw3 in the village just finished their re-model. the place looks awesome. they are a full service bar, not just beer.
 
2004-07-01 02:38:39 PM
Ditto: Sorry, but it was too easy to pass up. You're not suggesting there's actually such a thing as an interesting and creative Fark Party planning thread, are you? This one seems pretty normal...
 
2004-07-01 02:39:45 PM
Hey I've only been to one, and that was last year. I'll probably come - just remind me.

So where's JohnDX? Has he finally been banned from Fark AND Houston?
 
2004-07-01 03:02:42 PM
Pardon the absence - was at lunch for a couple hours (and a couple beers). a_e won't be around at least for today, so I guess I've taken over planning duties. Yay, me.

Happy Turtle - no, you're uninvited for being married. But you're reinvited if you bring single women. Or if you, you know, actually want to join in. Age group at the last one was 21 through mid-forties, I think. Maybe fifties. I don't really know.

Ditto - Like I said, man, this is just what happened. If you want somewhere else, you organize one of these. a_e just happened to take the initiative (he was probably drunk). Quit whining.

foxboxchic - I know, and like i said, I know it's a gross overgeneralization that I make. However, I stand by my stereotypes, and as a result all dog owners pay the penalty (or reap the rewards, depending how ou look at it).

Grivas - Um. Okay. You first.

Senor_elsnatcho - No can do. a_e is banned from BW3 (though I'm still welcome, for some reason. So if we don't mind ditching a_e, I'm down with that).

KelVarnsen - No booze at the Gingerman, but you can do what my ex- and I used to and swing in and out of one of the nearby other bars, down a quick drink, and return. But if you turn psychotic like she did, we no longer know you.
 
2004-07-01 03:24:04 PM
I'll bring it up to the hubby tonight and see if he wants to come. We'd have to find some babysitting for the munchkin, though :( Ginger Man sounds like his type of place. I'll see if I can scrounge some single women - I'll throw them in the trunk of my car for you. :D
 
2004-07-01 04:07:36 PM
Dead hookers don't count, Happy Turtle. :\
 
2004-07-01 04:19:11 PM
Whose whining and what initiative? You act like organizing one of these things is some kind of science. Especially the way he organizes it. "Hey Farkers. I've getting drunk at the same bar I get drunk at every night. Why don't you join me. Just show up. I'll be there."

Also, like I said before, we actually voted on a place once (though it wasn't in Montrose so I guess it wasn't the last one) and right before it was going to happen your precious A_e posted another thread telling everyone to go to Gingerman. There were even people in that thread asking what happened to the original plans.

Anyway, sorry to disagree with your little group and suggest you all leave your fishbowl. Have fun. Make sure to tell us all how much you threw up and what color it is in the TFD.
 
2004-07-01 04:22:37 PM
Mellow out, Ditto. If you want to have a Fark party in another bar, then organize a Fark party at another bar. This isn't rocket science, man, we just talked it over with a couple people and decided this bar was good enough for all of us. But, before you do that, you should remove the stick and just chill out a bit, rather than getting your panties in a bunch and getting some holier-than-thou ("more creative than thou?") attitude because we're not at the bar you'd wanted.
 
2004-07-01 04:22:43 PM
Nownow Grivas. I am too coordinated. Bastard.
 
2004-07-01 04:26:52 PM
Skail where the hell is a_e today? I emailed him too and got no response. Are we willing to change the location or not? If so, we need to start some kind if voting thing so everyone can give their input.

Also; back off chipaku; I already stated July 10th is MY birthday and I get all the attention!
 
2004-07-01 04:30:01 PM
Are we willing to change the location or not?

Obviously not.
 
2004-07-01 04:32:22 PM
He's recuperating from a long bender or something, PastorofMuppets. I spoke with his girlfriend and that was the general idea I was given. There's more detail to it, but neither you nor I really care. :P

I'm fine with the location changing, but I doubt I'm going to be anywhere outside the Village next Saturday. I don't care if the party goes on elsewhere, I just won't make it (being that it wasn't my idea, I'm also not going to insist on a site). For me it's a simple matter of survival - I know the area around me, I can take my bike (I try not to drive), and I can actually make it, after work (otherwise it would be a huge hassle).
 
2004-07-01 04:33:03 PM
Seriously, Ditto, fark off. Now you're just being a smacktard.
 
2004-07-01 04:39:10 PM
Yes sir Oh God of The Village!
 
2004-07-01 04:43:01 PM
Well I personally like the Rice area and have no qualms with being there. And being that I'm fairly notorious for my beer consumption, G-Man fits that bill for me quite well. You were also initially involved with this organization, so you need to stay in. You're going like it or not dammit.
 
2004-07-01 04:43:27 PM
I have to admit Ditto, the same cliche thoughts passed through my mind when I saw it was planned for the Gingermann.
 
2004-07-01 04:49:00 PM
It doesn't matter to me one way or the other, PastorofMuppets - regardless of what happens where, I'm going to have a good time where I happen to be. That other people don't want to be in the same place doesn't really bother me all that much. If you want to start something to get some input on a different location, feel free (*nudges Ditto and minoridiot*).

But regardless, Pastor, us three still have to hang out sometime in the near future. That could be a good night.
 
2004-07-01 04:53:00 PM
I say screw it; if it comes down to it us three can hang out THAT night if need be. We should stick with our initial plans and if there are actually some people from Fark who want to come, the more the merrier. If not, I think we can get into our own trouble.
 
2004-07-01 04:53:09 PM
Isn't my "little group," Ditto. Heck, I'm not even in-state now, just an ex-pat seeing what's going on in town. So it matters not a whit to me where this happens... maybe you should start your own "Special People Club"?

The rest of you kids have a swell time. Hytes, don't forget to... oh, never mind.
 
2004-07-01 04:55:18 PM
I bet this is the gayest gathering of people ever to occur.

And that'a saying something, down in the village.
 
2004-07-01 05:08:14 PM
Erm, well, this went to hell rather quickly. Someone e-mail me with the final location when one is reached...
 
2004-07-01 05:33:41 PM
Grivas,
Does it matter if Thangle is coodinated? You've seen her bio pic, right? Or, her in person maybe? (I haven't).
Off topic:
Any "old" Houston Farkers that grad-gee-ated high school in 1971?
I did, but now relocated to The Great Northwest.....
 
2004-07-01 05:49:46 PM
I haven't seen anyone suggest Volcano's. It's right near the Village, but away from the usual spots (like brian o'neils). Typical bar: dart boards, pool tables, patio, etc...but they use the tall drinking glasses instead of the shorter ones that require a person to have 11 of just to feel a buzz. And it has a lot of space.

2004-07-01 06:09:31 PM
OK, so somewhere in Houston on the 10th of July there will be a beer mug tilting and I need to be under it so it doesn't make a mess.

© lemme know where that beer mug is gonna be, OK? Oh, hehe hytes
 
2004-07-01 06:38:26 PM
Is it all right for an old fart to show up? There might be 3 or 4 beers I have not actually tried yet.
 
2004-07-01 06:41:48 PM
Please do Impudent; a_e is 63 years old and has you beat.
 
2004-07-01 07:23:46 PM
THE MARQUIS II

They have beer, enourmous LITs, It is nearish to the Village, and very seedy. Good for everyone.
 
2004-07-01 08:24:21 PM
Oh, don't worry, Skail - I'll pop the trunk when I get on the highway to give em some air. They won't be dead! But it's okay if they're windblown hookers, right? I mean, I'm just trying to help YOU out here, buddy. ;)
