knowless: private residence to deter crazies from attending?


Not really a good idea. At a bar you're checked to ensure you're 21 or over. That would be difficult for a homeowner to do and they'd be in a world of hurt for furnishing alcohol to minors. Plus you're also in danger of a neighbor calling the police if things get too loud and rowdy.

That was my thinking. I also considered getting permits for beer/wine and having a BYOB Fark-B-Q at a city park but it was getting too late in the summer to plan for good weather.

If this goes well I'll definitely be willing to plan a Portland Fark-B-Q next summer. I love an excuse to drink beer and play some kickball.

Heh! Sounds like a good plan. Besides, no one wants a bunch of basement dwelling farkers in their home. :-D

Is there decent parking around there? I love near PSU but that is a pretty decent walk.

Street parking only so you may have to walk a little. I also should mention, it's up a flight of stairs if I hadn't already.

I shouldbe able to attend

I'm not sure If i'm even available and I'm certain it will be awkward.

/so maybe?

Damnit! The one time I see a Fark party in my town, I am of course not IN my town. D'oh!!
 
2012-09-23 03:28:59 AM
I don't drink beer (more for everyone else), but what the heck, I'm in!
 
2012-09-23 03:48:22 AM
I'm 5 years sober, but no way in hell I'd miss this. Count me in.

They have good food (I think), and some fresh-pressed N/A juice drinks as well. You'll have an advantage if you want to play some darts or air hockey or something against other Farkers as well.

Re possible loss of anonymity from attending, let me say that if I did get the bars loosened enough to crawl out the window of my Mom's basement and get to this pub in Sellwood, you would know me by my tinfoil hat. So first, there is a possibility that your postings here have been so edgy that you have been identified by the G as a threatening person. Said G may or may not then have spent some taxpayer money trying to identify you as the poster using various agencies and means, about all of which you, Citizen, need not concern yourself. Failing however due to your clever use of cloaking technologies and your impenetrable web of shifting aliases, the enemy has decided to send undercover agents posing as beer-guzzling nerdbots into the heart of dphogan's little gathering. Expect everything you say at the venue to be recorded in HD video and digital audio, with the whole then subjected to facial recognition and voice recognition analysis.

Seriously though, if none of the above is true then maybe you should not be overly concerned about it. I'm sure you can put any name you want on your nametags ... easier than creating a fark alt ... or declare yourself and yr partner exempt from the nametag requirement.

I post under my real name here, so if anyone's that worried about it... Well... I dunno what to say other than I'll buy some nametags, but I don't expect people to wear them.

Uh, maybe. Wife's got a shoot and I'm a recluse. However, my parole officer has been telling me I need to get out more and meet people. Might as well be other Farkers. Baby steps...
 
2012-09-29 09:02:30 PM
AAAHHHHH good ole Sellwood, the child molester capital of the great northwest.
 
2012-09-29 09:26:24 PM
And on the East side no less. I guess if it was on the westside we'd all be chugging mer-lot. (See what I did there, what with the E/W "best side of the river thing?).

Is it a school night?

I hope a sobriety date doesn't hinder Fark revelry, or I am going on "super-screwed" years and a few odd days.

Mostly odd days, hence the glorious years wasted on Fark!
 
2012-09-29 09:45:48 PM
I'll be hitting up the Wedge cheese and beer expo before hand, but should be there shortly thereafter.

In!

Its quite possible that Mr.QD and myself could make it. We may be in PDX that weekend anyways. We live near Corvallis.

I better get to rolling.

We Twin Cities Farkers pulled off an amazingly fun and great Farknic this year and even raised some scratch for The Wayne Foundation. It can be done but it helps a lot if you have semi-regular Fark Parties to begin with so that you know a good portion of the people and what they're like. Also, having somewhat designated (loose knit sort of one is what we have) people who tend to take care of planning and whatnot for the majority of Fark parties helps. Things like email lists, etc. help out immensely.

2012-09-30 02:07:01 AM
I might drop in for a pint if I'm able. Will there be Fark nametags??
 
2012-09-30 11:54:34 AM
Oh no! I just found out a friend in Alaska is having knee replacement surgery and needs me to take care of him (hey, free trip to Alaska, right?) but guess what day I leave. So you guys will be getting pleasantly intoxicated in Sellwood during the second Fark party in Portland's history and at the same time I'll be getting a rectal exam at PDX so I'll be considered safe to board an airplane. *sniffle*
 
2012-09-30 11:59:00 AM
I'm in. Location?
 
2012-09-30 12:37:05 PM
I'm in. Crazy close to my house.

Anyone who bikes around the city, the Springwater Corridor goes out to Sellwood and there's a bike corridor on Spokane (that leads up to 13th). Not a bad ride out to our 'hood if it's clear.

My wife keeps hassling me for this info as well.

Officially, 7-10. Unofficially... Happy hour is 3-6. I was planning on being there by 5:30 to grab a happy hour well drink and maybe some happy hour food ($1 off anything except pizza) before 6, so if anyone wants to start before 7 I'm in.

I'd love to get an approximate headcount to the owners so they can make sure they've got enough staff working, so if people want to email me (davidphogan at gmail dot com) or post here by Friday that could help make things go a lot smoother. A maybe is fine, or if you think you can't and show up anyway, that's awesome. I'd just love to give them a "final" estimate so that they can have enough staff on hand.

Guests are welcome as well of course, but I also want to remind everyone that the location is 21+ ONLY. They can't look the other way with how the OLCC is, so I'm sorry if that excludes anyone but I just want to make sure it was repeated.

If this works out, I'd love to find a spot to do a Portland Fark-B-Q (it's really easy to get beer/wine/bbq permits for many city parks) next spring/summer. Hell, if people wanted to, we could do a winter one. I don't think we'd need to worry about the parks being booked solid, but a kickball game might be a bit messy.
 
2012-10-04 10:37:03 PM
So we'll be 2. Prolly show up between 6 and 7.
 
2012-10-05 08:09:11 PM
I will try to be there between 6 and 7, then.
 
2012-10-05 08:12:04 PM
Put me down as a maybe. This is pretty cool, just three blocks from my house.
 
2012-10-05 08:13:06 PM
I'm guessing under 20 but who knows.
 
2012-10-05 08:19:15 PM
I hope you folks have a great time. If you are on the fence about going and you are in the area- just .do. it. Fark parties are fun things . I am way too far south, like 1k miles ,but i would go.
Live a little and meet new folks !

I'm still in. Getting there for a happy hour drink sounds like a good idea. See you around 5-5:30. Plan to wear my black Cylon t-shirt so I should be easy to spot.

Well, it's a Fark gathering so let's not rule anything out just yet.
I'm a definite maybe + 2 in tow.

If people want a butt-chugging event we probably need to book at Casa Diablo.

I forgot to respond to this specifically, but you can just show up. I wanted to keep this as informal as possible.

Gonna be bringing the wife sometime after 6. I'll be sure to sit in the corner and stare creepily at everybody while saying nothing.
 
2012-10-05 09:21:00 PM
shiat. Just left Portland.
 
2012-10-05 09:22:22 PM
Sellwood-Moreland Pizza still exists, I see. This is a good thing. I remember when their owner got busted for heroin in '89.
