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.

There's also the Thayer Street parking structure, which is just a bit closer. Parking fees should be about the same.

(And after five minutes of trying to find something more specific about Thayer, I came across Parkopedia - this is most impressive. Every parking structure and metered space in Ann Arbor, all pointy and clicky. Filing this one away for later use.)

Sadly, I won't be able to make it to the shindig tonight. I actually woke up feeling worse this morning than I did yesterday - day six of a head cold. (This getting old $#!+ is for the birds.) Hoping to see a post-party head count.

Well FARK me and call me rugby jock...

I apparently have a dinner to attend tonight for the charity I just ran a 5k for. So, it looks like I will be unable to attend.

And here I was looking forward to actually meeting people from the Internet, especially polish hussar and megarian.

Hopefully we can get a lansing area, or at least another lower michigan FARK party done this summer.

There is likely free parking directly to the north of 207 Fletcher Street (University Health Services), just google "Fletcher Parking Structure, Ann Arbor".  You have to walk about three blocks to get to Ashleys from there, mostly across campus.

One caveat is if there is any kind of event at any of the three University of Michigan theaters in the area, they'll charge you to park there, otherwise it is free.  However do keep in mind that even then the gates are up, some spots are still reserved.  They'll have signs on those spaces showing them as "Business Vehicle" or "Gold Permit", don't park in those.

/if Fletcher is charging, you can always use the Catherine Street Structure which is always free on weekends, it is about a 10 minute walk though

I really hope we can show up after the roller derby gig in Northville.  Not sure what time it might be though.

Will be there around 8 pm ish.  Hope I can park on the sidewalk.  Gotta go wash the bike now.

Pedal bikes can be parked for free at the Maynard Street Parking structure, just around the block, and there is a parking attendant in a booth right there to keep the homeless away.  Those of the motorized variety can be parked for free at any of the following:  http://pts.umich.edu/alternative_transportation/motorcycles.php

I personally suggest M63 on that list, it is on the south side of 300 North Ingalls, the old Saint Joe's hospital.  A bit of a walk, but there is an awing where the ambulances used to pull in that is now an area for parking motorcycles.  Campus cops sweep through there regularly and there are two security cameras that campus police monitor.

That's good.  Of course, the only reason I'm bringing the bike is for AWing!

AWing is the whole reason I'm going.

My plans for tonight ended up being canceled so I'm able to show up for the shenanigans tonight, if someone is willing to carpool from Ferndale (Oh the joys of not having a car (Stupid jerk who hit me and totaled my pretty car)).

I always hate being the first to these things.

Lansing would be pretty awesome.

Well, for me at least.

I'll be there in about an hour.  If you get bored, I've found drinking heavily helps to alleviate that.
 
2013-04-27 04:53:25 PM  
Lapusk lies we should all hate her. Like Obama and Hitler's love child.
 
2013-04-27 06:04:44 PM  
I just sat down at the bar at Ashley's, anyone else here?

Pulling into a parking garage now.
 
2013-04-27 06:23:55 PM  
I'm at the end of the bar closest to the door. I'm wearing a light blue t-shirt & jeans

Turn to yor right. Four of us at a table.

I expect pictures, you rat bastids.

Good grief, this charity dinner thing is painfully boring.
 
2013-04-27 07:14:24 PM  
This work nonsense is running far later than I hoped*.  Have fun, folks, not looking like I can make it.  Unless it somehow goes past midnight, cause I'd need to go home first and home is on the edge of town.  Then maybe.  I'll check in later.

* urge to kill rising etc.
 
2013-04-27 07:22:40 PM  
Leaving my house now -- will be there in 10. I have bright pink sunglasses, so flag me down if you see me wandering around aimlessly.
 
2013-04-27 07:30:42 PM  
We're here and dispered among the masses!
 
2013-04-27 07:42:34 PM  
We need to move soon! The wait staff here are really terrible.
 
2013-04-27 07:43:20 PM  
We're moving! We'll be at The Heidelberg (215 N. Main) by 8:15. If you're still en route, go ahead and make your way there.
 
2013-04-27 08:10:04 PM  
On my way with 2 friends one is tall and bald
 
2013-04-27 08:39:50 PM  
We're at The Heidelberg, in the basement

Oh, NOW you tell me!  See you in a few!!

/about to leave Ashleys
 
2013-04-27 09:11:25 PM  
Spending a few minutes outside for anyone who's not sure they've come to the right place.

Those few minutes have now concluded
 
2013-04-28 12:00:03 AM  
That was fun! It was lovely to meet you all. Sorry I had to head out early, but let me know the next time you're in AA.
 
2013-04-28 12:57:33 AM  
Not AA ( alcoholics go to meetings, drunks go to parties)
Try A2 or A squared.
Or just say something wildly offensive and disparaging about Columbus.  We'll know you mean A2 and not 12 steps.
 
2013-04-28 01:02:46 AM  
Btw, yes, my gf is an ordained Dudist priest and does do weddings.
 
2013-04-28 01:15:47 AM  
Phew!  Finally made it to the Heidelberg!  So, where is everybody?

Guys?  GUYS??

/bastiges, the lot of you!
 
2013-04-28 03:35:41 PM  
Dammit! I missed it.  We went out with the Ann Arbor roller derby girls instead.  Sad to miss at the Heidelberg, that's my normal hangout in Ann Arbor (poker room on the top floor)
