Hi everyone- it's me again. Doing this again. If you're all around on Thursday night, stop by for a few drinks - would be nice to see the regular regulars!

So how does this work anyway? Do I have to wear a name tag with my Fark handle on it?
 
2012-08-08 12:21:46 AM  
I'll try to make it too-never been to a Fark party-
 
2012-08-08 12:21:57 AM  
Aww this sounds like fun. I'll be in Seattle then though

I'm glad you're coming! It'll be a small group (being a Thursday and all), but a fun one. We'll be in the back ... probably right side - and I'll most likely be there early. You'll most likely be able to figure out who we are. And if not, just look for a group of people looking at their phones :)

Right on man! I hope you don't mind egregious drinking and jocularity. I shall be there with my balls on.

I have been reading Fark forever and never commented much but I always see these notices and wonder what they are like. Maybe I should actually contribute first :-). I can't make this one, maybe next time someone has one in the Bay Area. Have fun.

They're fun :) It's kinda like the site, funny people, but with less asshole since you're within punching distance :P

I don't mind drinking at all. It'll be great to kick it with some fellow Farkers, especially at a cool place like Lefty's.

Have a work dinner at Abbot's Cellar, but will swing by if I'm not too ripped after dinner to find my way to Lefty's. Last time was awesome, look forward to seeing Teriaki again!

Yep, she's some awesome sauce.

You're gonna fit right in, then :)

Enjoy the beers, can't make it. Careful going down the stairs to the mens room.
 
2012-08-08 02:01:13 AM  
Well foo... I can't make it that week but I'll be in the city on the 16th. Anything fun happening then?

Not that I'm aware of. But, we're in preliminary planning stages of a Sacramento Rivercats game on the 25th. More details TBD.

MinnesotaJack: Enjoy the beers, can't make it. Careful going down the stairs to the mens room.


And that's one reason I'm glad I'm a woman.

Coincidentally enough, I'm visiting the area (well, Salinas/Monterey) from Texas. Not sure I can make this one though, as I'm vacationing with my daughter.

I'm always tempted to go to these when they are nearby, but hesitant; in part due to shyness and in part because I don't drink and they often seem focused on drinking. I don't mind others drinking of course, just doesn't seem like I'd fit in that well.

Lefty O'Doul's? What, was Bubba Gump overbooked?

It's a bit of a trip up to SF, but Monterey is a beautiful area - so many great places to visit around there. And since you're with your daughter, you've got to hit the Aquarium. A must see...fun for all ages!

As for FARK parties ... they do tend towards meeting at bars and lots of drinking, but if you're not there's no pressure or judgement. My first one I didn't know anyone, and ended up having a blast meeting people. You never know if you don't try :)
 
2012-08-08 09:58:13 AM  
The first time I went to San Francisco, Lefty O'Douls was the first bar / restaurant I wandered into. Whenever I go back, which has only been a couple times, I try to make it there. Great place.

Will the hostess know that it's a special event? If I ask for the Fark people, will s/he be able to point me in the right direction? I can only imagine the unintended offense I'll cause by going up to random groups of people and asking if they're farkers.

Things this Texan should have done while in SF for the first time a couple months ago:

a) posted to fark, apparently.

There's no hostess at Lefty's, but you can just walk to the back room, and I'll bring a sign so people will know which random group are farkers. But, it is SF, so they could all be ;)

Thanks. If I have my shiat together after work tomorrow, I'll show up.

I'm totally there. The moment I don't live 2,000 miles away.

Goddamnitsomuch...first I miss the weather, then I miss the food, and now I have to endure missing drinks with Farkers at Lefty's.

Just say you're with the porn star convention. That's always worked for me. I used to get my hair cut at the barber shop next door to Lefty's when I was nine. My mom would drop me in the chair then go next door to have an Irish coffee. We'd take the cable car home after.
 
2012-08-08 07:22:18 PM  
Thursday? I can't get to the city on a Thursday!

I'll go to one of these some day, mark my words!

How long are you going to be around Monterey? If you're into classic cars there's some huge events around town in a couple weeks.
Hit the aquarium, whale watching, rent a kayak, get dinner at Hula's instead of on Cannery Row. The water is freezing. Our weather usually sucks in the summer.

What I meant that as a native (and of that neighborhood) I regret not being able to attend. Perhaps someday when I'm visiting home. Harrington's would be a good venue. For those that have never attended, Fark parties are fun and the people are great.

If you're going to wonder after the party go East, not West. West gets rough at night. East is Union Sq.

Hmm, I just happen to be visiting from Ventura County. Are So Cal Farkers welcome?

I'm going to try and make it up from the South Bay.

All chaps are assless. THAT'S WHAT MAKES THEM CHAPS YOU FARKING CLAM!

If your chaps have an ASS, take them back because they are PANTS!

While y'all is actually a contraction of you all, it is most commonly used as a plural form of you. All y'all, all of y'all, or alls y'all clarifies that the entire group is meant, rather than an undefined subset thereof.

It's San Fran. You could walk in with a freaking ten-foot mohawk and people would think you sold insurance.
