Fark Party
Host: Paranoia-'
Description: 24 Hour Notice. Roads are open, power's on, and God's giving us an extra hour to drink. Saturday, November 3rd: History lovers and alcoholics of PA, DE, and MD unite at the Deer Park Tavern in Newark, DE
Date/Time: November 3, 2012 - 09:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: ::Update 11/2:: Everything looks good! Deer Park has power, (local) roads are open and going strong, and Daylight Savings Time comes in just as the bar is closing and says "NOPE! You get one more hour to drink!" The stars have aligned, and you need to be there.

::Update 10/27:: I'm not sure how Sandy will affect the Newark area. Obviously it is hard to predict the outcome of something like this, but I will be calling the Deer Park later and asking if they are in a flood warning area, or expect to be back up and running by Saturday. Sandy should end on Tuesday and power outages are only expected to last three days, so I am expecting this to go forward at this point. I will still be there, and hope to see you all there as well!

::UPDATE!:: Reservation is made for 9pm under Fark.com. We have our own section and server, I guess because they've heard of us and don't want us to frighten the other customers.

We've got a lot of Farkers in the DelMarPa tri-state area, but the Marylanders and Pennsylvanians are well-known for their unmasked hatred of each other. This is a chance to bring them all together in the neutral and universally hated state of Delaware.

The Deer Park Tavern sits on the spot where St. Patrick's Inn stood before burning down. SPI was known as a stopping spot for George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe, as well as Mason and Dixon while they were busy deciding who could have slaves. The Deer Park is also believed to have been a stopping point for the Underground Railroad.

Newark, being a college town, has several bars to choose from. The Deer Park is at the end of the main strip and tends to be more of a stop for townies than college kids. Lots of seating, great drink specials, and live music on Saturday nights, plus SEVERAL college bars within walking distance if you decide the Deer Park doesn't do it for you, or if we all get kicked out.

Still trying to figure out the best time to get it started, but I figure I'll probably show up there around 9pm and ride it until it closes.

This is my first attempt at organizing a Fark Party so we'll see how it goes. Any of you professional organizers are absolutely more than welcome to shoot me an email, EIP, and share advice or horror stories. I'll be providing "Hello, My name is..." tags and peanut butter cookies. BYO Social Awkwardness.

All day, every day specials:
$1 Keystone Light cans
$3 Tall Captain Morgan drinks
$3 Oak $ Cokes
$3 Orange Crushes
$4 Energy & Vodka drinks
$3 Rail Vodka drinks
$3 Miller Lite, Coors Lite, and High Life 24 oz cans
$5 Absolut mixed drinks

25 beers on tap.

Okay, maybe $3 24 oz beers would but NOTHING ELSE!! Except maybe mozzarella sticks...

Paranoia-': definitely recommend calling the bar ahead of time and seeing if we can get a section for ourselves. Since people probably won't be getting food this isn't as important, but it's a good gesture to the bar and maybe we can get a back room to ourselves or something.

I have no idea if I'll make this. Headed to NYC the next day and it's an hour drive, so I'll see if I can convince my girlfriend to take the plunge and have her first Fark party.

I'll tell you what; show up to the party and I'll let you buy me a slice to try and change my mind. I've only had their pepperoni, and it just tastes frozen and pre-made.

In the spirit of bridging the great ideological gap that divides us...that invisible yet confining Mason-Dixon Line...with TFD as my witness...I pledge that I would buy you mozzarella sticks to begin this Great Healing...this new day in America where children from Pennsylvania and children from Maryland might play together in harmony...where we may focus on the things in agreement (like TastyKakes) as opposed to that which makes us individual.

Holy crap. The Deer Park: my old nemesis.

I don't live in Newark anymore, but if anyone goes pick me up some whippits from Wonderland while you're over there. EIP.

I'm waiting to see how many people express interest in it. If we get a ridiculous amount I'd be willing to get their banquet room, but I'm really not down for spending that kind of money if it's going to wind up being 5 people drinking a couple beers and leaving.

Either way I'll definitely give them a call, but not until I have a better idea of what kind of numbers we're working with.

I vowed never to set foot in Delaware again. I'll have to see what is going on.

Think of it as that little concrete hut straddling the DMZ between North and South Korea.

I have no clue, but if that's what it takes to bring Al_Ed and ami5000 together, a screencap is the least I could do.

logistic: This sounds awesome, thanks for setting it up!


No prob, I'm really excited about it. And if you, or another MD Farker, wind up hosting one down more in the Towson or Baltimore area let me know. It's a bit harder for me to make it down that direction, but I'd love to try.

Ill go if Al_Ed will hug me softly.

Agreed. MAYBE if you're stumbling through Rehoboth and Thrasher's is closed, a slice of Grotto's is okay, but...actually, no. It's horrible. Sorry.

Ha! I enjoyed many a Wonderland whippit myself back in the '80s. Did anyone ever actually buy records at that place?

No problem , I may just arrange a hotel for the night and come back here in the AM but unless something changes consider me attending.

Hey, that's only 9 hours away from me.

hmmmmmmm.......
 
2012-10-09 05:31:26 PM  
Man. The Deer park. That takes me back.
The Mental Custodians. The Killtoys. So many local live bands.
The tore-up interior.
My brother and his friends always ordered a drink called a Brain Aneurysm that looked like a medical experiment in a glass.
Good times.

Hm, well, considering I drove *through* Newark to get to the Downingtown/Philly one...  hm.  Maybe.

Mike: Hm, well, considering I drove *through* Newark to get to the Downingtown/Philly one...  hm.  Maybe.


Ooooooh... shoot. You didn't get the memo, did you? You're actually -required- to be there as an Official Fark Representative. Drew promised that you would bring the Jager and cupcakes...

Bad weekend. Punkin Chunkin is in DE that weekend
 
2012-10-09 05:53:21 PM  
Hmmm. I have to cast my vote for 'maybe' here too. The peanut butter cookies are definitely nudging the needle.
