I'm so there!
2003-05-02 08:48:54 AM  
Oh jesus i just noticed it's going to be in and around Dupont Circle. Cover your ass boys!!!
2003-05-02 08:50:01 AM  
Some of the above comments make me feel better that I'm busy that weekend.
2003-05-02 08:53:10 AM  
Well, one way to get me to actually go to a fark party would be to have it at the Brickskeller, but i am away that weekend.
2003-05-02 08:57:06 AM  
Am I a farker enough to come? HMm?
2003-05-02 08:57:24 AM  
If I were president, I wouldn't hang out with you idiots either.
2003-05-02 09:03:54 AM  
brickskeller gets my vote too --

nothing like a buffalo burger and a beer you've never heard of before.

i am so there !
2003-05-02 09:10:17 AM  
Its party time! Yoho let the beer flow
2003-05-02 09:14:41 AM  
I am so there.
2003-05-02 09:31:22 AM  
Ah, the Brickskeller. Good times.

Alas, I never made it all the way through the beer menu. Yeah, I know. I'm a slacker.
2003-05-02 09:42:00 AM  
I'll be there
2003-05-02 09:46:16 AM  
What the hell, I'll show up. Hopefully I can get drunk and belligerent enough to start hitting on all the chickys and actually have a good time.
2003-05-02 10:06:25 AM  
I've been a farker for over a year now....and I'm still wondering: who shows up to fark parties, and waht exactly do they entail??

Just curious. Of course none are close enough for me...but hey, that's life in Springpatch.
2003-05-02 10:07:36 AM  
Well I'll be damned....April 29th was my one year Fark Birthday/Anniversary!!! Happy Belated Fark Day to me!
2003-05-02 10:09:19 AM  
I might have to go to that thing, being a dc person and all.
2003-05-02 10:10:24 AM  
So very tempting, I'll probably be there
2003-05-02 10:15:29 AM  
If I can talk one of my fellow fark buds into going, I'll go to the Friday night part.
2003-05-02 10:22:06 AM  
Yo bark, I'm just outside DC - we ought to meet up and go. Then we won't feel like such dopes if nobody shows.
2003-05-02 10:23:11 AM  
Brickskeller good... what about Archibalds / Fanatics
(is it still called Fanatics?)

Front Page / Buffalo Billiards is decent too

I'm there.

Eight museums in the Kalorama / Dupont neighborhood offer free admission on the weekend of June 7-8 and special activities including weaving and sheep-shearing demonstrations at the Textile Museum, a Family Fun Pack at the Phillips Collection and a scavenger hunt starting at the Woodrow Wilson House.

Boy oh boy, that sounds exciting.... :P

Maybe I'll make it for the 'skeller, but I don't have any particular interest in sheep shearing.
2003-05-02 10:25:33 AM  
I second The_Synergism's question: what's the deal with Fark parties?

I'm in the DC area, I'd think about attending, but I'd like a little more info first...
2003-05-02 10:27:44 AM  
Teedz - actually, some of the crap in the Smithsonian is pretty cool. If the whole party goes smoothly, I'm probably going to crash in a hotel somewhere and hit the IMAX for most of the day on saturday. That, and the Air and Space museum.

"But there's no air in space!"

2003-05-02 10:30:06 AM  
Oh, and I forgot that the Uptown isn't too far from Adam's Morgan.
2003-05-02 10:32:03 AM  
Triphammer: yeah, the smithsonian is pretty good -- albeit it's boring for me, as I've seen all that stuff for the past 20+ years.

Regardless, I'd rather do something at the Smithsonian, or on the mall, than go to one of those aforementioned museums. Really, the whole "free admission" reference there seems oddly-placed -- does this person even live in DC? If so, they'd know that most museums (sans the Newseum, maybe) are free...
2003-05-02 10:35:16 AM  
dude can we get this shiat moved up to PHILLY
god i have no life
2003-05-02 10:36:34 AM  

Honestly, I'm down for whatever, seeing as how I can get anywhere in DC in about 10 minutes without a problem. Whatever goes, goes. I'll be checking the thread to see what you folks decide to do.

On a related note, the only things that aren't free at the Smithsonian are the IMAX movies and the 4 dollar beers underneath the Natural History museum.

2003-05-02 10:36:39 AM  
I live in DC, so I might make an appearance, but Adams Morgan is TEH SUXORS!!!

Seriously. The place is always overcrowded and filled with drunk people, the clubs have cover charges and they aren't that much fun to begin with. Who wants to stand in place, packed in like cattle, sweating your ass off and waiting 45 minutes to get a beer while listening to the Vengaboys? Ohh me, me, me!!!

Also, Adam's Morgan is nowhere near a metro stop. You have to cab it there, and I farking hate cabs.

Screw that shiat. I stay to my own little neighborhood on Capitol Hill. You can walk to the bars from the Capitol South metro stop, there's no cover charges, you can usually pick a barstool and the drinks are cheap. That's where it's at. It's a lot more fun to sit in the Hawk and Dove stoned off your ass and drinking pints of Yuengling, than to hike way the fark out to Adams Morgan and do the club thing.
2003-05-02 10:36:47 AM  

As an Adams Morgan farkette, I'd like to throw out there that the bars are beyond packed in the summer, esp. the roofs. It's fun, don't get me wrong, but don't expect to be able to breathe. ;)

TripHammer, the Uptown is indeed a very short Metro ride and a 15 minute walk from Adams Morgan.
2003-05-02 10:37:42 AM  

That would be cool and all, but I got a couple of peepz from Balmo I gotta check with first.
2003-05-02 10:40:12 AM  
*glares at RabidWeasel*

That's a very unfair generalization of my neighbourhood. It's only "bad" on Fridays and Saturdays, and that's only because of all the kids from the 'burbs.

I hope I can make it, it's only a couple of hrs drive from where I'm at. Have to check the schedule. Sounds like fun and I would love to meet the DC Peeps.
2003-05-02 10:47:08 AM  
Woah, I diddn't think it would LITERALLY be in DC. If it has to be across the border (I have to go find my passport), could it at least be in Georgetown?
2003-05-02 10:48:28 AM  
w00h00! I'll have moved back to DC before then! After a year in New Mexico it'll feel good to get back to DC. I miss the inside the beltway stress-factor.

PS, any Farkers know of anyone who might be looking for a roomie in DC would you email me privately?
2003-05-02 10:54:02 AM  
Sorry you feel that way NuttyBunny, but I wouldn't live in Adams Morgan if you paid me. Too crowded, too expensive, not near the Metro and just too damn "trendy". It's like a botched attempt at transplanting Greenwich Village in DC.
2003-05-02 10:55:50 AM  
I was wondering when a DC farkparty was gonna happen =)
Pizzeria Paradiso is probably way too small to gather there. They can only hold about 35 tops.
It's also good to see the other DC farkers come out of the closet on this thread. I didn't know there were so many of us.

Stinkhead - Yeah, that place still goes by that name...

Oh jesus i just noticed it's going to be in and around Dupont Circle. Cover your ass boys!!!

Just don't wander into The Fireplace thinking it's the Brickskeller. It would be like a scene out of Police Academy when they stumble into the Blue Oyster Bar.
2003-05-02 10:56:20 AM  
How does one find the Fark people at the bar. I am assuming there are no dopey Fark signs or anything like that. Does one just walk around saying, "Fark? Fark?" or what? I guess I could look for a rather larger cluster of 21-30ish men with sporadic females floating around. Ohh wait that description fits EVERY BAR!
2003-05-02 10:57:23 AM  

I almost said something about The Fireplace, but for some reason, omitted any warning.

And yes, the Police Academy reference was exactly what came to mind for me, as well.
2003-05-02 10:58:06 AM  

Oh god - the fireplace . . .

shudder . . .

Maybe we really ought to get out of Dupont. Georgetown would be fun - hell, if you all could stand a trip to Bethesda, there's a shiatload of places there.

2003-05-02 11:04:51 AM  

Georgetown is really not that much fun it's full of frat boys and jar heads and that is never a good mix.
2003-05-02 11:08:34 AM  
The "Brik" just opened a new place over in Chinatown called RFD (regional food and drink) where Coco Locos used to be... The place rocks... Great food, and a short version of the "Bricks" beer list. (only six pages long)
2003-05-02 11:08:37 AM  
I was also thinking that oldtown Alexandria has a good variety of bars and is a little off the Fratboy beaten path.
2003-05-02 11:12:03 AM  
RabidWeasel, I could very well say the same about Capitol Hill as well. It's a pathetic attempt at a "new and improved" trendy spot to live in. And I'm constantly amused at how you folks love to look down your noses at AM. Hell, I even enjoy a good number of bars in CapHill... Politiki is nice, and I love catching EPL matches at Cap Lounge.

Let's just call it a truce, for the good of the DC Fark Party scene. Deal? :)
2003-05-02 11:15:40 AM  
Fathom: Old town is a great idea. Hard as hell to park in, but a much nicer environment. How about Murphy's?
2003-05-02 11:20:13 AM  
You can still metro to old town and it is rigth down the street from Murphys. Murphys is a blast I have poored myself out of there a few dozen times.
2003-05-02 11:20:33 AM  
I can't stand Georgetown. I live right next to Adams neighborhood where the concept of 'diversity' actually works. It's great that it's not on Metro, because that keeps most of the tourists away.
2003-05-02 11:25:17 AM  
Right on Peteykins. Are you at the bottom of the hill (18th) or near the top?
2003-05-02 11:26:11 AM  
NuttyBunny - Fair enough.

The Politiki used to be a great place, but the owner essentially threw out the old managers, who happen to be friends of mine. Now I only go if Sharkey (he bartends downstairs, has a mohawk, about 6' tall, hard to miss) is working. I'm more or less boycotting the place. Same goes for Cap. Lounge, which is under the same ownership.

Mostly, I go to the Hawk and Dove. Deborah Orgel works in the side bar, and she is probably the best bartender I've ever met. Really friendly, and if she considers you a friend, she'll comp you a few drinks now and then. She's not too hard on the eyes, either.

Red River Grill is also ok, especially now that the patio is open. I think it would be a great venue for a Fark party. The Grill has plenty of seating on the patio, and it's only 1 block away from Union Station. If we want to move on, we can just hit the Metro. A bucket of Bud is only $7, and the food is pretty good as well.

As far as Adams Morgan goes, the best places for a Fark party would be either Madams Organ or Heaven and Hell. Madams Organ is fairly large, and has about six bars, so it shouldn't be that hard for a dozen or more Farkers to take over a room. Heaven and Hell has a better selection of venues, though. Especially if you include that place in the middle, which would make it Purgatory, I suppose.

I happen to be a pretty shiatty dancer, so I generally spend my Adams Morgan evenings chugging beers down in Hell while my buddies are dancing the night away in Heaven. It's a pretty appropriate metaphor for my life as well.
2003-05-02 11:28:02 AM  

to bad they cleaned up Hell that used to be such a great place.
