Fark Party
Host: Unfreakable
Description: World Fark Party II - Las Vegas Nevada: March 30 - Apr 1
Date/Time: March 30, 2012 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: This is the second annual World Fark Party in Las Vegas Nevada. The event will include Drew and many of the Fark staff as well as Farkers from all over the United States and possibly the world.

Thursday (3/29) night will be a pre-event Pub Crawl on the Vegas strip starting at 6PM and will go as follows:
- Treasure Island: Breeze Bar
- Mirage: Rhumbar
- Caesars: La Salsa
- Paris: the sports bar in the back
- Treasure Island: Breeze Bar
Watch the Twitter hashtag #farklv2012 for updates.

Friday night (3/30) will be the main event in the Treasure Island ballroom from 6PM - 10PM. This includes all entertainment and a catered dinner, which will be a fully staffed buffet with several stations serving caesar salad, baby mozzarella and tomato salad, antipasto salad with roasted peppers, artichokes and grilled asparagus, cheese tortellini, tomato cream sauce and spinach, parmesan style stuffed chicken, Italian sausage with peppers and onions, garlic bread, parmesan breadsticks and focaccia, hearth baked breads, assorted biscotti, cannoli, Italian rum cakes and tiramisu, fresh brewed coffee, decaffeinated coffee, iced and international hot teas.

The cost for Friday night is $75 in advance or $100 at the door. The link for registration is here: Vegas Fark Party 2012. Space is limited, and the link will close as soon as we hit the maximum. A PARTIAL list of guests this year include:
- Burnie Burns (Red vs. Blue)
- Mike "Nug" Nahrgang, an actor and comedian that you probably know better as "Mustard Man"
- Mike Phirman (Hard 'n Phirm)
- and the finale will be the music of Paul and Storm.

After the Friday night event, there'll be karaoke at Imperial Palace

There will be a poker tournament on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 pm in the Treasure Island poker room, and several informal events on Saturday evening, including a pub quiz challenge in the evening (location TBD).

Both Friday and Saturday during the day from 10am - 5pm, we'll have a cabana Farkabana poolside at Treasure Island. It includes fruit plate along with water and soft drinks, seating for up to 10 people, LCD TV, refrigerator, ceiling fans, deluxe lounge chairs, day beds and cabana Farkabana host. It should be fairly easy to spot the Fark group.

We have a rate of $139 per night (flat, no Resort Fee) at Treasure Island. To join us there, make your reservation: 888-503-8999 between the hours of 8:00AM to 7:00PM Pacific Time. Group code is FARK12. Hotel registration deadline is March 6th to guarantee that rate. You can also click this link to make reservations directly: Treasure Island Reservations - Fark

All you folks who are going to Vegas this year are going to have a great time! I am very envious.

The Headless Horseman's Headless Horse: FYI: Anyone needing a room, I've got one booked at TI that I can no longer use. As I booked through Priceline, it's non-refundable.

I'd hate to see it go to waste, so I can attempt to modify the reservation for someone else that's in need of a room.

No charge, even.


I posted this on the FB Fark Vegas Party wall, and responses are coming in. I'll be giving them your EIP.

I'm going to be nude 1/3 of the time.
 
2012-03-01 07:17:40 PM  
If you get me drunk, I'll sing "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" and the Coming to America version of "Greatest Love of All".

bhcompy: Going to be at TI the following weekend for my anniversary. Gilleys advertises itself as a country western bar, is it actually decent in that regard or just another theme bar with hot waitresses?


Go to Hogs and Heifers.

Duke_leto_Atredes: how about the fact finding side trip to the moonlight bunny ranch?

It is like a 9 hour drive.

Well, I had a long writeup, but somehow I managed to End-User it into oblivion, so I'm gonna hit this with a few bullet points:

- If you wanna stay at TI, the deadline to register is Tuesday. After that, you'd be paying their "rack rate" which in all likelihood will be higher than the Fark rate
- The event is Friday, and will run from 4PM until 8PM. Don't forget to register here: Vegas Fark Party 2012. Over 20 people started registrations but didn't finish them. Go check to see that yours is done if you started one before.
- Guests on Friday will include Burnie Burns (Red vs. Blue), Mike "Nug" Nahrgang--known by most of you as "Mustard Man", Mike Phirman (Hard & Phirm), Tucker Max, and Paul and Storm will be the finale since they absolutely killed it last year. Our own aquigley has agreed to emcee the event. There are a couple more guests that we're chasing, but these are confirmed.
- Thursday night will be the pub crawl for everybody that's in town early
- Saturday (late morning or very early afternoon, I believe) will be the Fark-only Poker Tournament in the TI Poker Room again, and Saturday night will be a Pub Trivia Quiz night at a local drinking establishment. There are also a couple side-trips that are being self-organized by farkers, including a trip to the pinball museum and the gun store/gun range.

Can't wait to hang out with you magnificent bastards again.

Lord of Allusions: Coming to America version of "Greatest Love of All".


I would like to request the version performed by the stupid kid during the graduation scene in SAY ANYTHING...

Aw I wish I was going. have extra fun for me.
 
2012-03-01 08:40:07 PM  
Sweetness. Thanks for the update, Unfreakable. Looking forward to this weekend very much.
 
2012-03-01 08:42:59 PM  

Unfreakable: It's partly an issue of the size of the group, but I'm trying to find a way to improve one of the biggest issues, which is related to the TFD queue itself. Won't happen before Vegas, but before summer if it's possible to do what I'm going to propose.


All you queue spamming nerds better get your shots in now.


Have fun in Vegas, folks.
 
2012-03-01 08:43:29 PM

I'll make arrangements to be there this weekend.

Unfreakable: mitchcumstein1: I'd seriously think about going, but me drunk, in public, around new people...not good.

I'm hitting the Crown and Anchor ridiculously early on 3/31 to catch Arsenal at QPR, and maybe again on Sunday morning for Pool/Newcastle


I'd like to go just to watch soccer and buy you a beer. But alas, it won't happen. Maybe next year. Or the next year.
 
2012-03-01 08:51:56 PM  
Somebody better livecam it and put it on TinyChat. Of course, this will require everyone there to be shirtless.

Yeah. The 4pm thing might be tough for me as well. Might have to be fashionably late.

tobcc: Yoyo: tobcc:
In the competition world there is "Kansas City Style", "Memphis Style" and "Texas Style". Kansas City is by far the largest organization, but who doesn't like sweet sauce on smoky meats! The contest kicks off Thursday, Judging (what I do) and awards are Saturday afternoon. Vendors will have stuff the whole time to hand out. If you walk the cooks area and are cool (and beer helps), you should be able to eat more meat than humanly possible. They finish up cooking on Saturday morning (they will cook all day Friday and thru the night till Saturday), that would be the best time to walk the cooks area as they are tired and tipsy from drinking all day/ night. While some cook teams are hard core and do it for a living, most are just a group of buddys that are doing a 3 day tailgate.


Tanks for the info.
Might have to check it out.

Wait. Tucker Max will be there and Rape Tower won't? Well, I guess if both were at the same place, it would be like atoms splitting.

i can't. it's a bad time of year at work.


THIS. Dammit dammit dammit, that's the second year in a row I'm going to miss it because of work. And I've been on Fark since before there even WAS a TotalFark, under my liter handle.

Y'all have fun and stay safe. Tony, hoist one for me. Again.

Call your doctor if flaccidity lasts more than 4 hours.

I'll make it there eventually. I'm keeping early March open next year, and telling my boss I have to have vacation for a big huge family thing. Assuming that you plan to do this about the same time each year...

Fark has scheduled a private poker tourney for all Farkers, spouses and friends, 2:30 pm Saturday March 31 at the intimate and non-smoking card
room at Treasure Island. No Limit Texas Hold'em. The buy in will be $65. Also included are
free beginner's lessons starting at 1:30, depending upon interest. Just show up. This is to encourage partners to join in the fun and learn a little bit about poker in a relaxed atmosphere. The tourney will finish at about 5:30.

The card room manager is very cool, as are the dealers. He's agreed to let the event be MC'ed with gag gifts awarded, etc., etc. This will be
more of a party than a poker game, so whatever your level of experience, show up and play. If you spent the afternoon
playing blackjack you could drop $1K, easy. Here you risk $65 and get a party, with free drinks, and a chance at a big jackpot.

We had many beginners last year and they all had a great time. First and second places (syrynxx and aquigley) paid almost $1000 each and third place (Paul of Paul and Storm) paid nearly $500. Syrynxx can't attend this year so the coveted perpetual trophy is up for grabs.

If you are interested in playing, send me an email at poker2012 at cox dot net. This is an interest list only and does not reserve a seat. You will only be able to sign up on the day of the tourney.

Just a quick update on registrations: we had a few people reporting problems getting their credit cards to go through on the site, so we got a Paypal option set up. I'm showing a lot of incomplete registrations, hopefully this might fix things up a bit. Again, the registration link is here: regonline (new window)
 
2012-03-02 02:07:15 PM  
Update, I moved the time from 4PM-8PM on Friday night to a more manageable 6PM-10PM

Some day I'd like to spend hundreds of dollars to go to Las Vegas to hang out with a bunch of strangers whose only thing in common is an offbeat website.

/really.

Anyone want to see the Beatles Cirque show? I don't want to go alone.
