Putting the Downs into Downingtown.
 
2012-07-09 04:46:39 PM  
I'm in. I recently moved to Lancaster

AngryPanda: What about Triumph Brewing Company, IN Philadelphia, or the Grey Lodge, in NE Philly, or South Philly Tap Room, in South Philly, or somewhere like that? Heck, I would even attend Johnny Brenda's.


I'm a big fan of Johnny Brenda's. Frankford Hall is decent, too, if you want a Fishtown location.

But since I'm out in Lancaster now and Downington is a lot closer than Philly, I'll be there at Victory.
 
2012-07-09 04:48:23 PM  
Sure, but only if I can lament loudly throughout the night about how the Phillies need to be more like the Yankees.

If you don't know where the "sticks" are, you're living in them.
 
2012-07-09 05:08:13 PM  
Yeah, I'm in. Even if in DC at that time, I'll make the trip up

Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii: henryhill: How about having a Philly Fark party in Philly and not out in the sticks

This! It's not a Philly Fark Party it's a "Somewhere in the Bumblefark Suburbs of Philly Fark Party". What's wrong with Chickie & Pete's or Finnegan's Irish Wake? Or any of the other hundreds of bars actually in Philly? Unless this party is moved to a bar that's actually in Philly, I'm not driving over an hour to get to a "Philly" Fark Party.

/End rant...


Hey, I have an idea! You could, you know, organize your OWN DAMN FARK PARTY!

Victory is about 10 minutes away from me. Best beer in Chester County.
 
2012-07-09 05:38:03 PM  
I may come, but only so I can complain bitterly that no one had the courtesy to spend their time to organize an event at a location more convenient to me, because it is far less effort to guilt trip you into making changes that are in my favor than to organize something myself.

/according to google I am 6.5 miles away
 
2012-07-09 06:02:38 PM  
I will have to get off work but that shouldn't be a huge problem...

How will I know if this is definitely happening? Or, is it and we're just spreading the word?
 
2012-07-09 06:28:57 PM  
I may attend (not that anyone cares), but for those of you who do attend I highly recommend Victory's Golden Monkey..
 
2012-07-09 06:32:13 PM  
if brap will share a cab with me, I'll go.
 
2012-07-09 06:40:49 PM  

Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii: The only good thing about it is Shady Maple. Mmmm smorgasbord! Now there's a place for a Fark Party!


I wholeheartedly approve of this idea.

/there's no booze, but DAMN good food
 
2012-07-09 07:25:43 PM  
Im in, Victory is a fantastic place. Attended last years party in Ambler. To bad that place closed.
 
2012-07-09 07:37:33 PM  
Maaaaaaybe.
 
2012-07-09 08:32:25 PM  
I may attend if I can get over this crushing fear of talking to strangers in person.
 
2012-07-09 09:01:26 PM  
A Fark party 10 minutes from my house ? Yep, I'm in.
 
2012-07-09 09:36:36 PM  
Yep. Count me in-Lurked here long enough! Ok.....well....why not? Grin!
 
2012-07-09 09:52:31 PM  
Hey, if anyone wants another Fark Party later on in Philly, that's cool. I might come to this one if anyone wants to discuss carpoolage, I live in Northeast Phila and own a vehicle.
 
2012-07-09 10:22:41 PM  
I live 5 mins away. Its on like donkey kong! I'm gonna be there. Pantsless.

You needn't dress in a dress on our behalf...
 
2012-07-09 11:06:53 PM  
Since I missed the last Baltimore and DC parties, am absolutely interested.
 
2012-07-09 11:18:34 PM  
I'm in.
 
2012-07-10 02:26:11 AM  
Finally! And I'll even be in town. Mos def count me in.
 
2012-07-10 02:43:56 AM  
Just noticed it's in Downingtown - not complaining, but going out there by RR might be too difficult. I mean, who leaves a Fark party at 11:46?
 
2012-07-10 04:40:00 AM  
Sure, I would be willing to make an apperance.

Any excuse to go to the Victory Brewpub is good enough for me.
 
2012-07-10 07:42:26 AM  

BostonFarker: funzyr: Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii: asleep71: My friend used to be a brewer at that Victory. Now he works somewhere else, Slyfox I think.

As for the 'out in the sticks' comments, you couldn't be wronger. Yes it is west of actually philly by about 45- 60 minutes (depending on traffic) but it's not Parkesburg or Gap.

This is probably the closest Fark party to me that I will not attend.

Both Parkersburg and Gap aren't "out in the sticks". They are borderline Pennsyltucky...

I currently live in "Penssyltucky."

Holy Shiat a fellow Farker in York? You don't say.... I thought I was an endangered species.... Or just Odd

I'd love to go to a Fark party but Downingtown is just a tad to far outside of downtown Philly for me. The last train back to the city is at 11:30ish and I'm just getting started about then. Cab fare would run about $90 to $110 plus tip to 30th street. If I could get 3 others to split the fare it would be doable. Any takers?

Love the Victory Brewpub, it's great place and I'm sure those who attend will have a great time.
 
2012-07-10 07:49:30 AM  
I was all excited about this... until I found out how far it was from Philly....
 
2012-07-10 09:35:43 AM  
i'm in.

part of the reason, i believe, for having it in downingtown (besides victory being a good place) is so that people who aren't necessarily close to philly can make it too (for example, people from pittsburgh or harrisburg)

Also, bars in the city are heinously overcrowded and most of you are social retards

i'll probably take the train from hamilton or trenton, if anyone wants to leave their car at my house and come with, that's cool.

You're allowed to harass me outside of Fark parties.


You guys really are a bunch of whiners, but what else should we expect from Philly people. Philly people complain that it's not in the city. Non-Philly people would complain if it was in the city. There's no way to make all of you happy and since it's no one else has stepped up to plan this thing I say we go with what we have. So either come to the party at Victory or don't. Either way it won't matter because we'll have a good time with or without your asses.
 
2012-07-10 11:44:26 AM  
Hey, Philly Farkers! Next party will be at The Backyard Ale House in Scranton. You in? Seriously, Downingtown is closer Lancaster than Philly.

Victory is a good time, though , so enjoy.

NYCNative: I will have to get off work but that shouldn't be a huge problem...

It's happening. I'm going to make a rough headcount based on this thread in a day or two and call Victory to reserve tables. Looks like there's more than enough interest to even get their group room reserved - if that costs a reasonable amount of money I'll just front that and ask for a few bucks from whomever wants to contribute.

I'll also be posting reminder threads with more details in a few weeks!
 
2012-07-10 03:55:42 PM  
I work in Wayne, so should be doable. Can I lurk in the corner, make the occasional snide remark, and then disappear back into the shadows? No sense in breaking tradition.
 
2012-07-11 07:59:51 AM  
I'm in. And I almost have my buddy talked in to coming from Pittsburgh.
 
2012-07-11 11:53:24 AM  
I need to find a better hotel in downtown Philly than the dump I stayed in last time I was there. I went to see a friend's graduate show.

There were drug dealers and prostitutes openly wandering the hotel I was in.

"No sir, I do not want to purchase a kilo of cocaine or use the services of your lovely assistant at three a.m. but thanks for knocking on my fecking door to ask me! I appreciate that you have terrified my girlfriend to the point where she is cowering in the shower stall. Come again! This is better than Girl Scout cookies."

I called the front desk to tell them that some guy was walking around bothering the guests and the front desk person said. "If you want him to leave YOU tell him. He's got a gun and he's higher than shiate!"

Good times, good times.

Scranton?! I'd definitely be in! I would love to go to this here Victory gathering, but it's nearly a 3 hour drive, so I don't think I'm going to make it. *sniffles*
 
2012-07-15 01:02:19 AM  
Too bad it is really from from Texas
 
2012-07-15 08:05:35 AM  
I'll be there.

Parking?! Besides Downingtown is like 15 minutes from me.

I WANNA GO. Want to meet you :O)

Whoa. I'm gonna need a bodyguard.
Let me know what hotel you choose this time, brappers.
 
2012-07-17 10:43:56 PM  
Hmmmmm. A party at Victory? Wonder if I will be in the area that weekend.
 
2012-07-24 01:04:32 AM  
Sounds like fun. We're a maybe, pencil us in.

AlabamaGirl: Hmmmmm. A party at Victory? Wonder if I will be in the area that weekend.


Yes please...!
 
2012-08-03 01:10:25 AM  
Ok, I'm in. Anybody fussing about how far it is to Victory, try traveling all the way from 'Bama!
 
2012-08-08 08:02:31 PM  
Is there a FB event for this? I might be able to make the trip, but it's the kind of thing I could decide to do last minute & I'll forget about it without something reminding me. Farktime ebbs and wanes significantly for me right now.
 
2012-08-08 08:04:31 PM  
I am so mad jelly it's not funny.

/going to go drink a Golden Monkey
//from my kegerator

Count me in. Can I bring a date?

But everyone can complain that I'll be there.

Mr. Murder: Count me in. Can I bring a date?


Wait are you inviting me to stay at the home of you? Because if I make it to this party I will need to have the place to stay because this would be the dangerous return drive of me.
