Fark Party
Host: thebpem
Description: SE Michigan/NW Ohio Fark Party April 27 Ashley's Ann Arbor 7:30PM
Date/Time: April 27, 2013 - 07:30 PM (local time)
Party Info: Hey Farkers/Farkettes Lapusk and I (thebpem) want to have a party/pubcrawl. I'll be travelling from south of Toledo and she'll be coming from Flint so we've decided Ann Arbor is a middle ground. We plan on starting at Ashleys and depending on what people want to do when they show up we can stay or go.

No more bad suggestions, if you want a party in Detroit, set it up yourself.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  A fark party I may actually be able to go to.  Intriguing.
 
2013-02-28 09:53:59 PM  
What? Where?
 
2013-02-28 09:55:29 PM  
Honestly, f*ck Ann Arbor, do one of the Casinos downtown. More hotel opportunity

Ann Arbor is actually out of the way for...... the world. If you want people to come in from out of town, my casino plan is the best, you could stay at any of the three casinos and walk to any of the other ones downtown. We could actually probably assemble a pretty badass Detroit bar crawl

The only good thing about Ann Arbor is that I saw Robert Plant there

The only time I've been to Ann Arbor was to see Beck play. Great show, especially with the long walk-on by Jack White. But yeah, AA has nothing going for it, Detroit or even Toledo would make better options.

WAIT, this is on a Wednesday?!  Why the Hell can't we have an MI during the weekend for once?

Hey!  I could totally drive there.

Ohhhhh we dont give a damn about the whole state of michigan, the whole state of michigan......

Ooh, this one is doable. And I can hit up all the places I've missed in Bowling Green since graduating on the way through.

Would anyone come to a cincinnati party? I am afraid it would just be me and dynascape

I'd be up for anything in Ann Arbor or the Detroit metropolitan area.  If you do it in Ann Arbor, I would recommend Ashley's (huge beer selection) and Grizzly Peak (good beer, better food).  Can anyone speak for Jolly Pumpkin's Ann Arbor location?  I've only been to the one in Traverse City and I've been told they're somewhat different.
 
2013-03-01 01:12:55 AM  
So many better places than Ann Arbor for this.

Casino area is good.
Novi area is another good choice, plenty of bars and hotels in a small area.
Quite a few areas on the north side of Detroit with plenty of good food, drinking, and hotel options.

He'll, I know a nice little brewery in Plymouth that'd be a great bar to drink at with a really tasty restaurant right next door that'd be more fun than Ann Arbor.
 
2013-03-01 01:20:54 AM  
I'm down.....for NOT Ann Arbor. Let's make it downtown Detroit.
 
2013-03-01 01:23:47 AM  
I've had my boobies online since July of 2010 and my moobies irl for a bit longer, and I've wanted to goto a Fark party but haven't had the opportunity to go nor the age to go (nor the balls to, probably), and now I have all four. I've heard these parties are a helluva good time.
 
2013-03-01 01:29:21 AM  
All the Ann Arbor hate. While i an currently in Ann Arbor downtown Detroit, especially a casino sounds like the best location.

Are you talking about Liberty Street Brewing?

Since I'm up and not doing anything particularly useful, I'm just going to post links to all of the Metro Detroit breweries/brew pubs I can think of off the top of my head:  Kuhnhenn, Dragonmead, Bastone, Atwater, Motor City Brewing, Traffic Jam and Snug, Detroit Beer Company, Royal Oak Brewery

Former Michigander here. Formetly from Southfield. I just don't get this. Its the same 30 minutes from Southfield to Ann Arbor as it is to downtown as it is to Grosse Pointe. If I was still in town, it would be a no-brainer to make the trip to Ann Arbor for a FARK party.
 
2013-03-01 02:00:24 AM  
Good call on Ann Arbor.  Nailed it on the first try.  Between Michigan and Ohio, Ann Arbor is the best city the two states have to offer.

Get your drinks at Grizzly Peak and your food at Frita Badito's.  Tons of other options nearby if you need 'em, too.

I saw the Dalai Lama there. And the Karmapa. And saw George McGovern debate Ed Meese about the 1988 candidates and issues.

Ann Arbor? Detroit? Why not split the difference and do Ypsi? Less whores and about the same odds of getting murdered. Depot Town? Corner Brewery?

Are you saying that Jack White be in Ann Arbor?

A Weds Fark party... I guess they really don't want the Ohions to attend? Even if (theoretically) I lived near the city of Detroit, no way I'd drive out to Ann Arbor on a weeknight. (Unless Jack White will be there of course)

First off, this.  Please, weekend.

Second, even if Ann Arbor wasn't stupidly convenient for me, casino idea = lame.

My coworkers partied with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long twice.   Of course I was out of town.  Thanks movie tax credit.

/RIP, too

People be lazy, that's all.  Ann Arbor is central for Toledo, West Michiganders, Flint, *and* SE Michiganders.

That said, weeknight again = eek.  I probably couldn't swing a Wednesday, I tend to work crazy late on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays.

Chuck Ruffcorn: Ann Arbor? Detroit? Why not split the difference and do Ypsi? Less whores and about the same odds of getting murdered. Depot Town? Corner Brewery?


First off, come on, can we kill the Detroit murder jokes?

Second: Ypsi is an awesome idea (although even father out for the effing BFE northern suburb complainers).  You can reserve the building next to Sidetrack's for free (Frenchies IIRC).  I don't know how early you have to ask for it, but they have kickass food *and* a kickass tap selection.

So that's probably my vote.  On a weekend, dammit.  If it's moved to Tuesday I could definitely come.  if Thursday I would probably end up bringing 6-8 coworkers along.  They're fine people, Stuart.  It's just gonna be fun explaining what a Fark party is.

/and I'm going to bed now

According to my calendar, April 27, 2013 is a Saturday.

NOVI.

Are you f--king kidding me.

Christ.

Because when I think of "fun in SE Michigan", Novi... actually, Novi never, ever, EVER comes to mind.

/only good thing about Novi is the Great Lakes Myth Society song
//and even they admit before they play it that Novi itself sucks
 
2013-03-01 03:17:26 AM  
The only way I would go to Detroit is if the party was at Slows. I've always wanted to go to one of these things, now I might be able to?!?!?!

Traffic Jam has good food, and is across the street from Motor City Brewing.

Dragonmead is f--king amazing but in BFE Warren, and there is nothing around it.  Except a freeway.  It's on the service drive.  Less food selection.  But amazing beer, and a ridiculous amount of variety.

Ann Arbor has Arbor Brewing Company, Ashley's (don't brew, but good tap selection), Grizzly Peak, Jolly Pumpkin, Blue Tractor, and Wolverine (on the edge of town, rest are all within stumbling distance downtown).

Oh.  Sorry I listened to people upthread.  I woke up, couldn't sleep, and hit refresh.  a bit groggy.  :)

I still vote Ann Arbor or reserving space at Sidetracks/Frenchies if not Detroit.  The suburbs are lame, and if it's in Ann Arbor there's a $5 cab after 11 that'll take you to whatever hotel you need to go to.  And for some odd reason, maybe that large university I heard so much about, there *is* hotel space in Ann Arbor.

Walk between the casinos!  Good times!

What? Years ago there used to be a rather good bar and food scene once you got away from the malls.

Bi Bim Bab comes to mind for food, and they had a pretty good bar right next to it.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: I still vote Ann Arbor


I vote for Ann Arbor as well.  I'm fine with Detroit, but I'd prefer Ann Arbor.  The only thing I would object to would be the casinos.  I don't gamble (no moral objections, I just suck at it), and standing around watching other people play table games is not my idea of a good time.  Also, I'm pretty sure the casinos charge more for food and drinks than the other places downtown (sorry, free booze for gamblers doesn't exist in Detroit).  One other thing to consider about Detroit, the Tigers have a 1:05pm home game on April 27th, so we might have to contend with the remnants of the crowd that decided to make a night of it downtown.
 
2013-03-01 04:08:37 AM  
Ah hell, figures I'm working that weekend.  Oh well.

/come visit me at work!
 
2013-03-01 04:47:58 AM  
There are also plenty of charter rides used by some of the bigger places that can probably take you from places like the BBQ and Lager House west of Woodward over into the Greektown mayhem east of Woodward.
 
2013-03-01 05:07:10 AM  
I fully support Ann Arbor.  Don't like casinos, they're too obnoxious.  Breweries seem like a better setting for a FARK party.  Also, Ann Arbor is a bit closer for me at least, I'm coming from GR.  Michigan is now on the map for good beer!
