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

I know right? How odd is it that the one stripper on Fark isn't going to Vegas?

So no-go on the satellite party?

Satellite party?

Paryb: Hey Mike Just be sure to be just sober enough to fark with the layout on April Fools day! Watching people whine in the TFD queue is the farkhighlight of my year!


I wonder what other things Mike could do on April 1...

1. Have the article links randomly go elsewhere, like Zombocom or to a Rick Roll (or even The Final Countdown LIVE).
2. .... I'm all out of ideas. :(

It'll work if you have enough deductions.

Put me down for a no. I'll be at home, watching TV.

I am absolutely seething with jealousy.
Will this be a repeat of last year in terms of All Caps Drew jacking up the mainpage? That made me feel a lot better about missing last year.

I'll have to pack my beaver for the trip. He's been to Vegas before, but never to a Con.

That's so ██████ ████ of a ██████. That makes me want to ████ a █████.

xl5150: Anyone else interested in taking a trip to Pahrump?



Nothing to see there. Unless you're stalking Art Bell. They do have a Rotten Robbie's. Take the turnoff to Tecopa, and soak in the healing hot springs instead. But if you do have something there worth going for, let me know. Actually, I'll have a car and might lead a Saturday expedition to Tecopa/Pahrump.

Now I really wish I was going. Just bought a whole mess of flava beans and Chianti.

I have changed my mind several times about coming to this party. Some of ya'll are some racist, misogynistic, narrow-minded assholes.

But ya'll seem like would probably be a fun bunch of racist, misogynistic, narrow-minded assholes and part of me wants to go.

/still not sure

Room rate update:

If you join TI member club online(free), and ask for the current rates to replace yours...

Thurs- $59.97
Friday- $107.97
Saturd- $125.97

That's the rate for a strip-view room. Deluxe standard is about $20 less total. Granted you will have to pay the resort fee, but it is cheaper by quite a bit. I'm actually thinking about upgrading to a petite suite for the same rate I initially booked the fark-block room. YMMV.

Rosyjenn: I'm going to be there.Even if half of you don't remember me I am still going to wreak havoc on the ones that do. :-)

Hey, that's a pretty broad generalization. We are not all fun.

TI Tourist Tip for all the fat farkers: Way in the back, directly across from the entrance to the tram that goes to the Mirage is a random small shop. In the cooler at the back, they have a tray of fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

You're welcome.

If they have frozen beef patties and a bbq for rent, I'm there...

Isn't there a law prohibiting so many fat, ugly, unemployed people in the same place? Something horrible might happen like a D&D tournament or Quake LAN party.

themeaningoflifeisnot: frickinsweet: I like my men older too a la themeaningoflifeisnot but my f*ck puppets must be disposable, thus the age limit.

Plus this is about me getting under someone in order to get over someone else, so shut up is why.

Sounds like a good plan. Come visit WNY after you've ridden a few stallions into the ground (though you may have to look outside the Vegas Fark party for that; try your luck at the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay--lots of rich, twenty-something guys auditioning to be f*ck puppets).
