Since the last party was in DC proper, this one is going to be in Arlington. Feel free to complain below.

The party will be at 6pm on Saturday, April 12th, for all those of you who complain about Friday nights being hard to get to. The venue is Carpool, which is easily Metro accessible on the orange line between Virginia Square and Ballston. If it is nice we will try and be on the patio, if not, look for the awkward group in the corner. I will try and remember name tags.

Huh. First I'm hearing of this.

ahwahoo2006: If it is nice we will try and be on the patio

The patio was packed last night, and will be again if it's nice. I talked to Mike the bartender and he knows we're coming. It shouldn't be a problem to just take over part of the bar. I guessed around 30 people and he said it was no big deal. But then again, he's insane.

Thanks.

Maybe this will be a good reason to use the "turn by turn" navigation thing that on*star gives me for two months for free since I bought a new car?

Kinda far though...
 
2008-04-11 10:24:46 AM  
Awwww. I used to have a corporate apartment right within eyeshot when I was consulting up there. Fun place. Enjoy! - I'm jealous.

Is anyone actually going to be there at 6? I might stop by, but I'll leave around 7.

Yes, I will be there.

Weak.

I think I have kickball (teh ghey, I know) so I will arrive totally sauced, or after a quick drunken nap. Ballston though. That might take some time to get to. Can't promise that I'll be there at exactly 6.

Whatev. As always, I'll be the best looking one there.
 
2008-04-11 10:40:40 AM  
Hmmm... tomorrow is going to be a fun day...
 
2008-04-11 10:43:40 AM  
tomorrow is looking more and more like a bar crawl for me

I'll be there - drunk and fat as usual
 
2008-04-11 10:44:11 AM  
I'll even have a car tomorrow!

/but I won't be able to drink much or stay long
 
2008-04-11 10:50:22 AM  
I'll be there around 8...going to a wedding in Chantilly. It's at 6...I'll stay a few minutes after the ceremony and be on my way.

Very weak, TKU.

TheKnownUniverse are you bringing the wife??
 
2008-04-11 10:59:48 AM  
I have a party to crash at the Bottom Line in the afternoon, so I may stumble in already drunk at some point.

Make sure you read the link for parking info in the area.

Stars_At_Night: TheKnownUniverse are you bringing the wife??

Probably not, I can't see him going all the way out to Arlington to hang out with internet people for an hour.

That's funny!!! I used to have a pile of money I liked to roll in right up the road!!!

Chris Barr: Whatev. As always, I'll be the best looking one there.

Um, at a FARK party? Is that hard to do?

??? I was on a five year contract to DoD. It was alot cheaper than staying in Crystal City hotels.

/may be missing your snark
 
2008-04-11 01:50:17 PM  
sigh... Of course the next DC Fark Party is when I'm in California. Hopefully I'll still be drunk from the wedding I'm going to this afternoon. That way I can imagine a connection to you guys.

/open bar FTW
//I have good friends
 
2008-04-11 01:51:13 PM  
oh man, this timing sucks. I work lazy person walking distance to Carpool, and if it was tonight for HH, it would be a breeze to swing by. But alas, i am driving up to Bmore for a birthday party saturday night.

LadyHawke911: sigh...

SlothB77: oh man, this timing sucks.

Sorry. I try to include as many people as possible... but that just doesn't always happen.
 
2008-04-11 01:57:53 PM  
yeah, i have really wanted to come to one of these in arlington, but i am always consumed by something else going on.
 
2008-04-11 02:02:44 PM  
Would it be overly optimistic for me to ask if there will be any pool/drink specials?
 
2008-04-11 02:04:40 PM  
I'll be lurking.

/you probably won't notice
//nevermind me
 
2008-04-11 02:07:28 PM  
why is it so early? I might come out around 9ish.
 
2008-04-11 02:11:42 PM  
Death by Misadventure: I might come out around 9ish.

I'm getting there around 8-3:30ish.

There will be people there, I am sure, in great numbers.

But there will probably be no basil.
 
2008-04-11 02:12:17 PM  
When you all decide to host it at Clarendon Ballroom, RiRas, Liberty Tavern, or Whitlows then I'll be there. Carpool? Not so much. Not a bad place just not my cup of tea.
 
2008-04-11 02:15:56 PM  
questionallthings: Whitlows

There have been at least 4 parties at Whitlows to my knowledge.
 
2008-04-11 02:18:24 PM  
awahoo2006, yeah, I've been to at least 4 there in the past few years.

Also, didn't RiRas have a cover or something?
 
2008-04-11 02:18:39 PM  
If I get off work in time and don't want to kill myself (that'll probably wait for Sunday) I'll be there.

/Work at an accounting firm
//5 days till tax deadline
///Shoot me.

Yes, they wanted a "party fee." I can't even imagine a Fark Party at Clarendon Ballroom - I think the universe might implode.
 
2008-04-11 02:22:58 PM  
ahwahoo2006: Whitlows parties were great that's why I would have gone to them (of course for the past several years I was shift worker so never could).

Bufu: Only after I think 9 or 10. Before then not so much.
 
2008-04-11 02:24:06 PM  
They wanted a party fee? Forget that yos. Nevermind then.
 
2008-04-11 02:26:48 PM  
I think the universe might implode.

I think we should have a Formal Fark Party, with the girls in cocktail dresses and high heels and the guys in black tie.

No, I am NOT Serious TFer.

I'm in. iheartarchimedes sends her regards.
 
2008-04-11 02:31:12 PM  
Cool, I haven't been able to make one for months, I am very much looking forward to this!
 
2008-04-11 02:34:15 PM  
Dammit sometimes I really wish I still lived in Arlington. I used to live in the apartments right behind there.

/I could have thrown a water balloon at you guys from the 16th floor.

Woo! Fark party! I will attend to help keep down the potential sausagefest odds.

A great end to a great Fark week for me: 100th greenlight, won a photoshop contest, and now a Fark party. A personal trifecta!

w00t!

Bufu: If you can get a Formal Fark Party setup then I'm all in. Would be nice to see how prim and proper you people can get :).
