One last reminder (ok, so there will be one tomorrow.)

$3 microbrews.
$4 raildrinks.

E-mail is in profile, if you need more info or my cell number.


Don't worry about not knowing anyone - everyone is very friendly and in the same situation as you.

Drew going to be there?
2005-11-11 04:07:56 PM  
The lurker I was bringing has crapped out on me, probably why she's a lurker. I'm still showing up so play nice nice, it's my first.
2005-11-11 04:08:08 PM  
Hmmm....I'll think about it
2005-11-11 04:08:13 PM  
Ummmmmm, microbrew.

I just hope everyone is as alcoholic as I am.
2005-11-11 04:10:44 PM  
Ah Fark, I'm not going to be in Chicago until next weekend.
2005-11-11 04:12:13 PM  
I loves me some Mystic Clit. To bad I won't be in town.
2005-11-11 04:13:06 PM  
Who can get me from NYC to Chicago?
2005-11-11 04:13:07 PM  
Is there some secret brand of beer which doesn't taste like crap? Because every kind of beer I've ever tried tastes orful, like the cheat hair mixed with sour cream.

Yaaay! Beer! Do they have Strongbow on tap there?
2005-11-11 04:17:55 PM  
Where is the Mystic Celt?

Last two fark parties I went to went bust for me and my friends:

First one - John Barleycorn and their farking dresscode.

Second one - Someone was talking about meeting up at the fireside during the early summer, IIRC, and not only was no one there, but the damn place was closed.

So my question: Is there a dress code and will people actually show up?

what will i be doing this weekend? hopefully drinking...unfortunately not in chicago, but thanks for asking.
2005-11-11 04:29:37 PM  
Mystic celt is a normal pub style bar. They got regular pub food, and no real dress code. It gets kind of busy on weekends though so you might want to show up on time to get a good seat.
2005-11-11 04:30:01 PM  
Sweet deal on the micros!
2005-11-11 04:32:21 PM  
I should be there, been sick all week but feelin good now. Looks like it's going to be a good time.
2005-11-11 04:32:28 PM  
bikerdiva: Do they have Strongbow on tap there?

From their website it says they have Strongbow in bottles, but not tap. I'm actually rather disappointed at their "microbrew" tap selection. The import tap list is fine (Um... Newcastle).

So for those of us that have to drive.....parking?
2005-11-11 04:35:05 PM  
Skasteve - Parking is ok if you hit the neighborhood. You'll be lucky to find parking on the actual meters. Try the side streets.
2005-11-11 04:36:13 PM  
Awww, I would come! I am visiting Chicago next weekend. :(
2005-11-11 04:36:59 PM  
Alright, sounds fun, see you all there.

Should we wear nametags or somesuch?

Pic in profile, although I probably won't be wearing my glasses.
2005-11-11 04:37:01 PM  
It's really too bad I can't come. This was gonna be my Fark Party trifecta.
2005-11-11 04:37:17 PM  
in the future, you guys should try Southport Lanes which is right down the street, OR my fav Brownstone Tavern which is on Lincoln and almost Irving Park Rd. Best pub food there is. (expensive)
2005-11-11 04:40:04 PM  
I'll be waiting for you at the airport ms. bigglesworth;)
2005-11-11 04:44:49 PM  

I hate hate hate hate hate the Brownstone, there's a long story there, but it essentially has to do with some asshat frat boy bartender turning the game I was watching so that he could turn all 20 of the plasmas they have there to the Cubs game, and saying to me, "dude... this is kind of a Cubs bar."

There were like 4 people there at the time., that's right, 4 people, 20 TVs

I almost jumped over the bar and strangled the punk.

oh, and their food is way too salty.

I don't know wtf a raildrink is but $4 seems like a fair price to find out. See you people there!
2005-11-11 04:54:03 PM  

I will be wearing this with my 6 inch stilettos. ;)

2005-11-11 04:54:46 PM  
wow, thanks for the advance warning.
2005-11-11 04:55:06 PM  
HPZ: I don't know wtf a raildrink is but $4 seems like a fair price to find out.

It's the lower quality liquors. There's Rail, Call, Shelf, and Top Shelf (depending on the bars).
2005-11-11 04:57:45 PM  
I will have name tags. Yeah, try the neighborhood for parking around 7 it should be good.

Check out my profile for pics of the fark parties and look for people who look like that at the party.

See you all at 7 tomorrow!!

everyone must wear Alice's nametags or they don't get the drink specials.
2005-11-11 05:01:51 PM  
OK, I have 39 people RSVPed by name. I am sure a few more lurkers will show. Looks like we could break 50. :D
2005-11-11 05:03:09 PM  
Am I offically RSVPed? If not, I am now!
2005-11-11 05:03:31 PM  
Don't forget to try their tator tots, Mystic Celt fries them up nicely!
2005-11-11 05:04:20 PM  

I'm going to try to convince the Lady ZeroKool to come as well, but we just closed on our condo yesterday so there's a bunch of work to do. Looking forward to it though.
2005-11-11 05:08:02 PM  
Are there reserved tables alice or is it just find a spot?

Hot bigglesworth, I'll be waiting at the gate dressed like this.
2005-11-11 05:10:20 PM  
It will be a fun time. Pleas keep the party going late, everyone.
2005-11-11 05:10:33 PM  
I might stop by, coming from the NW burb, with Denise from SBB...
2005-11-11 05:13:59 PM  
Got me? I am now on the fence due to personal life issues, but I will drop by if I can...
2005-11-11 05:14:33 PM  
Hmmm. I don't have anything to do tomorrow night, so I just might show up.

/wishes it was closer to downtown, though
2005-11-11 05:16:57 PM  
Click on the Fark Parties link, look at the number of posts for the Chicago Fark Party, then look down to the number of posts for the Cleveland Fark Party, and you'll know why I moved from Cleveland to Chicago 10 years ago.
2005-11-11 05:22:46 PM  
Wouldn't that be "third" rail drinks?

/here in SD we calls them "well" drinks
2005-11-11 05:31:28 PM  
never been to the mystic Celt, but walked by there...I hate that 'hood but that place looked ok...i'll try and stop by! but you have to go easy on me, never been to a fark party before. tried to go to the one at john barleycorn...then couldn't bring myself to go to that place.

ZeroKool and shaunklink: i'm with you!! brownstone sucks!! always full of stoopid fratties and mortgage brokers. my friends and i call it the "brown hole."
2005-11-11 05:32:50 PM  
I'd be there in my Guillen jersey, but am heading to football game earlier. Will try to make it.
2005-11-11 05:36:51 PM  
I am going to try to be there. I'm trying to introduce my new boy to the interwebs. Drinking should do it.
2005-11-11 05:38:13 PM  
sorry, didn't read your original post, shaunklink.

sorry you like the brown hole.
