I haven't seen a reminder, so I'm taking the liberty of putting out one myself. I hope everyone who responded to the original thread and to me via email is still going to come!

Per the last thread...

The official date and time:

January 7th, 2005
arrive between 9:00pm-10:00

Smith's Olde Bar in Midtown.

See you there!!!
2005-01-04 09:01:54 AM  
Also from the original are the directions and phone number for Smith's:

"Smith's Olde Bar" can be reached at 404-875-1522.

From NORTH of the connector: I-75 or I-85 southbound to the 10th/14th St Exit. Turn left on either 10th or 14th, then left again at Piedmont Ave. Smith's is on the left, just past Monroe Dr.

From SOUTH of the connector: I-75 or I-85 northbound to the connector. Connector northbound to the 10th/14th St Exit. Right on 10th or 14th, then left at Piedmont Ave. Smith's is on the left, just past Monroe Dr.

If you live east or west of the city, use I-20 to access I-75/85 northbound, then follow the above directions.
2005-01-04 09:14:04 AM  
What if you're really bad with directions, and don't know which way is North or South until you see the really tall castles in Downtown Atlanta?
2005-01-04 09:16:13 AM  
You're just wrong. I know to what you're referring. You are mean ;P

It's not nice to make fun of those of us sharing a ride on the short bus!
2005-01-04 09:18:31 AM  
And just in case you were wondering, I-285 is just one big circle. You will never get to Turner Field if you stay on 285.

/Just trying to help!
2005-01-04 09:20:19 AM  
So will there be a cat fight at the bar?
2005-01-04 09:22:47 AM  
Dom and I will be jello wrestling at this party. She's a lot taller than I am, but I am quick like a fox.
2005-01-04 09:24:49 AM  
Too bad Miss Jive and I am off to Wilmington, NC this weekend

Please take lots of pics.....especially if you go with the lime jello
2005-01-04 09:56:39 AM  
Damn...too bad it's on a Friday. If it was Saturday, I probably would have made the drive.
2005-01-04 09:59:25 AM  

2005-01-04 10:00:45 AM  
You never know, just never know when a sick day might come along. :)
2005-01-04 10:02:23 AM  
Miles, you gonna make the drive to L.A. again for the Pasadena gathering?
2005-01-04 10:05:09 AM  
Thinking about it, 'bout you?
2005-01-04 11:07:52 AM  
Life is good. See everyone there. Will nametags be provided or should I bring my own?
2005-01-04 12:03:43 PM you have to be 21 to get into the Pub?

I wanna go
2005-01-04 12:48:58 PM  
StomachMonkey almost forgot about it until I reminded him!
2005-01-04 03:08:12 PM  
Also to be mentioned is the South Florida Fark Party, to take place Saturday, Jan. 8th at 7pm. Information can be found under the Fark Parties link.
2005-01-04 04:48:42 PM  
Anybody in the Gwinnett area want to carpool?
2005-01-04 07:08:00 PM  

I went there Sunday night and they weren't checking as I came in, but it definitely could have been because there were about 10 people total. Good luck.
2005-01-04 09:15:05 PM  
I'm there like underwear!
2005-01-04 09:49:12 PM  
I shall be there as well.
2005-01-04 11:39:05 PM  
I swear my cousin's wedding on saturday is screwing everything up for me....
2005-01-05 12:28:40 AM  
I really want to go. Will do my best.
2005-01-05 07:51:22 AM  
//Not 21

Alas. Maybe next time.
2005-01-05 07:56:31 AM  
Totally going to try and make it. I saw a few people post asking about "passwords" and the such, anyone ever answer this? Also, what person decided to make this on a friday? Even though I live in East Atlanta, just down the road from midtown, its still a friday and traffic is still bad :)
2005-01-05 07:56:45 AM  
OK, twist my arm. I'll venture inside the fence for that.
2005-01-05 08:08:54 AM  
Hey, Ill be in the Atlanta area the end of this week as well as the weekend, you guys have room for an out of state farker?
2005-01-05 08:22:59 AM  
what person decided to make this on a friday?
'Twas not me! I live in Alpharetta. I just put up a reminder.

Call Smiths. You should still be able to get in, but you just wouldn't be able to drink.
2005-01-05 08:24:59 AM  
So is this serious? I showed up at Fellini's the last time this was tried and was lonely for my trouble.

But if this is for real, I'd certainly like to be there.
2005-01-05 08:27:59 AM  
i think that we should have the liberals vs the conservatives. the conservatives will win due to superior firepower. notice i said nothing about dems and repubs
ps will any hotties with skinny elbows be there?
2005-01-05 08:32:20 AM  
Fark's In Atlanta?
2005-01-05 08:35:37 AM  
Fellini's is some seriously good pizza, lonely or not. Couldn't have been THAT bad of a night, eh Dorsai?

If this was 2 weeks from Saturday, I'd be actually 21 instead of the "college 21" that permits me to drink.... er....

Maybe next time I suppose...
2005-01-05 08:37:13 AM  
Smith's is a great Music Club-usually the cover will apply if you go upstairs for the main band. They will ID at the door. at 9, its unlikely that youngsters will be let in. It can get packed here. Park across Monroe in the Kroger parking lot.


FRI 7 In The Atlanta Room:

/in Appharetta but will probably go ITP for this one.
2005-01-05 08:40:59 AM  
The bartender upstairs is extremely easy on the eyes...body ink style.
2005-01-05 08:45:04 AM  
Couldn't have been THAT bad of a night, eh Dorsai?

It certainly could have been worse, but given that I had to fight traffic from Alpharetta to Midtown during rush hour, I was none too happy.
2005-01-05 08:52:02 AM  
I'll be there!

Actually, no I won't.
2005-01-05 08:53:08 AM  
Man! I wish I could be there.

I live in Alabama (Montgomery) -- but I can't go. I'll be up at ATL airport at the end of the month (ours sux here), so I guess I will just wave when I am here, and you all be sure to wave back.


I really want to meet some Farkers.
2005-01-05 09:02:14 AM  
I'll see if I can make it down from Duluth... Should be a good time!

JP in a Kilt in Duluth
2005-01-05 09:28:44 AM  
I will try to make it. I live in Roswell, but the lil 'uns might make it difficult...
2005-01-05 09:31:07 AM  
I was unaware there were even this many Farkers in ATL... nor any in gwinnett either Aimee3480. But alas, I am not yet 21 either... only 10 more months though and then I'll be joining you all.
2005-01-05 09:37:59 AM  
And just in case you were wondering, I-285 is just one big circle.

I know a guy who circled I-285 twice before he realized that something was wrong.
2005-01-05 09:41:04 AM  
I found this thread way late, but I'll try to be there.
2005-01-05 09:42:48 AM  
I live OTP in Gwinnett and work downtown. Friday is my last day. I start a new job on the following Monday. It wil be a double celebration for me.
2005-01-05 09:44:50 AM  
I'll be there wearing my mustard man outfit.
2005-01-05 09:45:51 AM  
Will you be giving out seeds?

2005-01-05 09:48:00 AM  
Hopefully this will be better than the non-starter that was the last one... I couldn't find anyone!

Do we pick up name tags? Ask the doorman? How the heck will we find each other... I'm not likely to go from table to table saying "Fark party?" to bikers and frat boys.. :)
2005-01-05 09:52:45 AM  
i see how it is now; wait until i'm not there to hold a fark party, will you?
2005-01-05 09:54:02 AM  
I could wear a hat that said 'Farker' but that might cause more problems than it solves too....
2005-01-05 09:55:52 AM  
Yikes! It's 61 miles around I-285. That's a long f'n way!

But those of us that have been here a while remember Pascual Perez. His Braves jacket after that little incident had I-285 on it. Hilarious!
2005-01-05 10:02:48 AM  
Yep, that was Perez... famous.

I also know a guy that was high on blow and missed his exit, kept jabbering to one of my friends, and was going to just "drive back around" a-la Perez. Hilarious. My friend was not amused.
