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.

April 27 is a Saturday according to the Gregorian calendar.  Also, hotel space is not an argument for Detroit vs. Ann Arbor.  There are 18 hotels available that night:  http://alturl.com/7ewk6

StreetlightInTheGhetto: 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?



I see what you did there!


As for Detroit City proper, there aren't a lot of  pubs that either A. don't have a band playing on the weekend or B. aren't packed to the gills on Saturday night, economy notwithstanding.  Most of the out of Michigan Fark parties tend to be at yuppie type watering holes, that have lots of beer taps, but not overly crowded.  I can't think of any such bar in the city of Detroit, although there is a new sports bar in the MGM Grand casino, appropriately called TAP.  Of all the casino bars, this would probably be the most appropriate, should there be a future D-town Fark party.

/but a SPORT's bar?
//eh, all us nerds would pay attention to each other, for once

I live in AA and I'll be sure to hide my kids, hide my wife from you Farkers.

I'm in Northville, right next door to Ann Arbor.  This idea is intriguing, as it's so close ... but then again, it might require going to Ann Arbor, which is full of people from Ann Arbor.  Hmmm.

I would much rather it be at MGM Grand ... although then I'll spend all my time gambling.

And smelling like an ashtray.  The casinos are exempt from the indoor smoking ban, and despite the high ceilings and ventilation systems you can't get away from the smell of cigarette smoke.

I don't feel like driving across the state to watch people gamble.

/quality interaction, talking, etc.

If having a nice, upscale, walkable, centrally located place with a large variety of brew pubs, bars, restaurants, and enough hotel space, Ann Arbor is an obvious choice.
 
2013-03-01 08:58:17 AM
I'm in.  Ann Arbor is better than Detroit.  There are places to go in Detroit, but they're pretty far from each other.  In Ann Arbor, you can't turn around without finding another restaurant/bar.
Novi has a couple of nice restaurants, but it's not where I would go for a party or pub crawl.

Why dear FSM is it on a Wednesday?!

But I will try to make it.
 
2013-03-01 09:25:33 AM
Not crazy about Ann Arbor, but don't want to quibble.  Any ideas about group rates for hotels there?  schatz, I'm in GR, too, we should talk.

thismommentinblackhistory and bow, do you think you can drive up?  Love to see you boys again.

It's not -- APRIL 27th is a Saturday

What Knot, how about you?  too-old?
 
2013-03-01 09:32:02 AM
I am in Ann Arbor so naturally think that's the best idea. Seriously, though, anyone coming from out of town who thinks a "bar crawl" in Detroit is a good idea is probably imagining downtown Detroit as something it's not. On a Saturday night you'd be walking literally miles sometimes between bars, very little traffic and few people around, through high crime areas. So, actually hurriedly piling into cabs, or drunkenly wondering where this People Mover thing takes you (hint: Greektown, then 15 minutes later, Greektown again).

Novi is a terrible idea. So is Plymouth. If y'all want to walk from bar to bar, Ann Arbor is the best choice by far. As a bonus, by the 27th most of the undergrads will be gone.
 
2013-03-01 09:44:47 AM
Has anyone biatched about the venue yet?  Because that would be helpful.
 
2013-03-01 09:55:04 AM
We could start at Arbor Brewing.  I know some of the people there.  I actually do a 'Brewery Tour' every year where we rent a tour bus and go to 4-6 breweries in one day.  A couple of years ago, our first stop was Arbor Brewing.
I'd be happy to talk to some people and see what they could do for us there.

SE Michigan/NW Ohio...a match made in Heaven.  By which I mean Hell.

It is bad enough that you are combining the worst possible elements of both states, but you are meeting in Ann Arbor (a pain to drive in on a normal day) while a road rally is going on (it starts at 4pm), and you are going to hang out at a jazz club when Heywood Banks will be at the Ark.

Seriously, do they not have Google where you people live?  I suggest you meet in Ypsilanti.  That way you will be raising the IQ's of Flint, Toledo, and Ypsi all at once.

Damn you folks are grumpy. Unless that road rally is new, I've managed to go years upon years without it affecting my life in the slightest. There are plenty of other bars to move between, and the Ark crowds don't generally rush the bar after the show is out. And as much as I love Ypsi, you've got all of 3 choices if Depot Town is it. 4 if Wurst Bar is included and it's an uphill walk. $5 night ride does *not* work in Depot Town.
 
2013-03-01 01:14:51 PM
If it makes it in A-squared, I may decide to appear and make the pilgrimage from the capital city area...   there's no farking way I'm going to road dog it down to DeTwat....   had too many dicey situations down in GreekTown and around the Joe as it is...  no thanks.

I have no suggestions for AA, but it is a pleasurable city as long as you can put up with the people from AA...  

Would anyone be interested in hitting Planet Rock ahead of time for some climbing?

Especially if it's "in" Philly.

Motorcity casino in Detroit...because I have a free room there I can use.  FARK party in my hotel room!!!

Yes, actually.  Haven't been there since 2006, but I had a lot of fun every time I went.

For all of you people biatching about Ann Arbor, there is nobody forcing you to go so just do us all a favor and STFU.

That said, A2 is close enough to home that I could easily go.

Ok guys.. here to answer some questions:

1) APRIL 27th is on a Saturday, not a wednesday.  That would be MARCH 27th.

2) If you guys want to host a Fark party in Detroit, I think that is great!!

However, BP and I thought the Ann Arbor would work for driving both from in and out of state (including ill).  I currently am working on hotel accomidations, (someone mentioned ypsi.. that is where I'm looking for hotels).. and a couple of great places to get drunk and molest eachother (since we all know that is the point of a fark party.)

If ya need to email me.. please feel free to do so.  me­lissae1975[nospam-﹫-backwards]l­iam­g­*com

Lookin' forward to meetin' ya'll.
 
2013-03-01 06:39:19 PM
Okay, I'm there. All-nighter, right?
 
2013-03-01 07:21:29 PM
All-nighter!  And as much as I like the town name of Ypsilanti, there isn't much there....
For all those suggesting Detroit, please consider those of us who don't live on the east side of the state.  Ann Arbor is a more centralized (fair) location for the whole group.
Are we all just cranky cuz we're all farking sick of this weather?


/though if we were to have an additional party in Detroit, I would consider a FARK party round 2.
//will be my first FARK party
///sooper excited
 
2013-03-01 08:05:30 PM
I think I might be in for this one. After all, April 27 is my birthday! And I want to see Heywood Banks the same night. Keep me posted Farkers!

/eip, etc
 
2013-03-01 08:47:09 PM
Did not know Heywood Banks was going to be there.. I would be interesrted in tickets to that as well.

My first Fark party was Vegas.

All Nighter for sure.. and if you can find cheap hotel in A^2... grats!
 
2013-03-01 09:12:47 PM
Actually it looks like you can get many options of hotels for between 59-80 dollars a night.  I can make a list if anyone needs them.
 
2013-03-01 09:50:02 PM
Love the Ypsi idea (duh!)
Honestly, I went to a Fark party last year in Royal Oak that must have drawn a whopping 7 people. So location is the thing.
Casino is way to go.

Dude... no casino.

But wasn't the RO party on a weekday? In any case the last 2 I knew of work came up.

Personally casinos = boring and expensive to me, plus the AA/Ypsi more central idea.

Plus - can't emphasize this enough especially since the SO works late and commutes by bike... $5 night ride in Ann Arbor. And Ypsi if you get to the transit center or Abe's on Michigan Ave.

I just noticed this thread. I think we can definitely do this.

CommieTaoist: murphy_31: 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.


We threw a Fark party in Toledo recently, and it was fun and well-attended. Bow and I joked about it so often that it turned into a real thing. You know it's a good one when people stay longer than they said they would!

It's too bad that the Toldeo fark party venue was a total dive and the employees there were dicks...

Honestly, this started as a reason for me to sex up lapusk in person and it's steamrolled into this. AA is halfway in between. I just found out yesterday that I'm leaving in 6 months, if I'm going to make one mistake while I'm here lets make sure it involves beer.

Haha, well hopefully we survive St. Patrick's Day. I'm about to head in to make another 200 Jell-O shots. 1 box of Jello-O, 1 pint of water, 1 pint of Vodka. But wait! There's more! We infuse vodka with fruit. I'm putting fruit that has been soaking in vodka in the Jell-O shots, so they will be weapon's grade.

Make a couple with Fish Sauce. It's an old party trick my friends would pull. By the time you find it, you're too drunk to notice. It's a great conversational piece.

Have fun! Be safe!

Molly Malones is a good place to have it.. They liked us.

A Fark party at Ashley's, you say?  I might just make the four-hour drive for that, if work stops dominating my life by then.

Chach: 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.


If by the best city, you mean a shiat-infested anal sore, then yes.  Ann Arbor is a whore.  A dirty, stinky, herpes-laden whore.

Damn straight.  They're the owners of the most embarrassing loss in college football history.  A lower division comes into your house, the same year Henne and crew decided to come back to finally beat The Ohio State University, and lose your first game on a blocked field goal.  They are pathetic and they should be barred from every playing college football again.  Douches.

I'm not sure what it is, but it's not about driving 70 minutes, or longer if you want to avoid the hell that is US 23
