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.

So its official, I will not be there, sorry ladies, contain yourselves, I know it's terrible.

No money, tax return was not nearly what I thought it was going to be, so no vacation this year.

Maybe next year.

smells_like_meat: nopokerface: Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: Well, this should be interesting.

Hells yeah! Maybe good interesting, maybe bad interesting, but I think interesting is guaranteed.

I love everyone.

Looks like I may have to join in this year. I do live here after all.

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

who is the commitee chair?

It is like a 9 hour drive.

The Chicken ranch in Pahrump is an hour away.

I may not make it into town until 9 or 10. Going to try to get off early.
 
2012-03-02 04:45:44 PM  
Part of me wants to go now, just to see if I can get Tucker Max to devote a chapter in his next book to the disgusting sexual experience that would take place.
 
2012-03-02 04:46:29 PM  
Hmm. Six years, no greenlights, never made it to a Fark gala. But, I might just have to attend this one...
 
2012-03-02 05:14:36 PM  
I'll need to get my shots first, but I think I may actually make it out to this!
 
2012-03-02 05:18:22 PM  
Vegas is quite the shiathole.

No respectable city would have us.

Aaaaand just reserved a room at Bill's Gamblin' Hall. Everything is go.

No really. Love, Love, Love. In fact, I'm going to do an alt, "Ilove"

Seconded. Thanks for setting the poker tourney up again, Meat. Had a great time last year.


You're welcome. Tony is likely hosting. I don't think my health will permit it. I will be up for Con 2013 though.

Almost forgot to repost this here.

Fark has scheduled a private poker tourney for all Farkers, spouses and friends, 2:30 pm Saturday March 31 at the intimate non-smoking card
room at Treasure Island. No Limit Texas Hold'em. The buy in will be $65 which includes all tips, fees, etc. 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 begenners 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[nospam-﹫-backwards]x­o­c­*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.

shivashakti: Mustard Man AND Tucker Max....?
Wow...you guys really brought out the big guns, didn't you?

/kidding. Would love to go just to hang out with fellow Farkers.
//Maybe next year.


welcome to stay at my place.
 
2012-03-02 06:34:20 PM  

syrynxx: Mike: casey.lurvs.bacon: Plus strippers.

hooray

Strippers need love too.

smells_like_meat: welcome to stay at my place.


I very much appreciate the offer. But money's incredibly tight. I'm being kicked out from where I live, so I've got to move soon, so airfare and such for a trip like that is just not something I can afford right now.
 
2012-03-02 06:38:31 PM  
I may just be able to attend this year... we shall see. I live in Henderson so I don't have a huge excuse not to.

vincent_blackshadow: FishWife: I never could get the account with that first handle to work, so I just created a whole new one. Now if I can just remember the secret handshake...

oh, you know the secret handshake alright :D ...

My band is playing at Gilley's if you are into country music. I'm sure there are plenty of farkers that will be into watching the Gilley's girls ride the bull too. Sharp knees hold the bull better.

2012-03-03 10:17:03 AM  
I don't know if it's because I just woke up and I'm hungry, but that buffet menu sounds pretty damn good.

KingoftheCheese: that buffet menu sounds pretty damn good.


Needs more pizza. Or at least marinara sauce for the breadsticks. Jeez.

I have a pretty awesome beard... but, sadly, won't be able to make it.

Ah, how I wish I could afford to go.

yes, yes you do, but I will be carrying the beard banner at the fark party.
 
2012-03-03 09:49:57 PM  
I had a great time last year. Everyone was cool and TI is a nice place. A maybe on this year. I recommend it for any farker that can go.
 
2012-03-04 03:31:08 AM  
I would say that the poker tournament was a great way to meet people. I remember so many Farkers only because I played against them. SgtCyanide is great, and PrettyWarrior made it to the final table. Remember to bet your cards half the time; bet the people the other half. Poker is a great game.

frickinsweet: I'm now accepting applications for my Vegas Weekend Fling. Must be male, not older than 27, and willing/able to STFU and do what he's told. And then GTFO when I'm done.

EIP.


Considering you look at least 35, you seem to be setting your expectations a little high.

/just saying

Booked it. See y'all there.
 
2012-03-04 02:34:53 PM  
So, the $75 gets a person into the party Friday night which is dinner and entertainment. Is there anything else that fee gets a person? I will be out there that weekend for my bachelor party, and these Friday night festivities would definitely add something nice to the whole shebang.

It's the dinner and the entertainment. As far as dinner+show goes in Vegas, it's the best deal on the strip by far.

Booked flight. Booked Room. Booked event.

Now, to find somebody to watch my dog who may or may not shiat on my rug each morning.

On the upside, if she doesn't shiat, she'll at least piss.

I've been thinking about getting dressed up.

KingoftheCheese: I've been thinking about getting dressed up.


I was debating wearing heels, just because I rarely get opportunities too. But because I always wear skirts, I incidentally often look overdressed even when I don't intend to be.

Thursday is now SOLD OUT at the special rate.

Great. I bought my Fark Party ticket already. So much for arriving Thursday.

Online, or by phone? Earlier today, I heard mumblings that it shows sold out online but might not be if you call TI up on the phone.

I'm planning on wearing my green suit. Second to last time I was there, it got us half off tickets to Jubilee at Bally's and was going to get us a free trip to a gentlemen's club, but Jose was way too drunk at that point for us to say out any later.
 
2012-03-06 03:50:39 AM  
I'm in.
 
2012-03-06 03:54:15 AM

I got a room at Bill's Gamblin' Hall for Thursday night, it's cheap and relatively close to TI.
