Fark Party
Host: stainedglassdoll
Description: Saint Louis Fark Party, June 1 - Get drunk and climb on stuff, TODAY, storm or shine
Date/Time: June 1, 2013 - 07:30 PM (local time)
Party Info: Meet me in Saint Louis!  The Midwest gets no love, as Farkers tend to flock to either coast. :(

Saint Louis Fark Party, June 1 - Get drunk and climb on stuff

The party itself I'd like to have at the City Museum in Saint Louis, dubbed a "playground for adults", where you can get drunk and climb on and in all kinds of shiat (for a better glimpse, check out  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Whf1SR7ZAxc). It's the kind of place that would be perfect for a bunch of Farkers. General admission on the weekends is $10 after 5 pm.

For those of you that want to hang out for the weekend, Saint Louis has a ton of great stuff to do in the summer. Aside from the Arch (you can ride up to the top!), there is a great park called Forest Park, that is home to many museums and an awesome freakin' zoo, all free to the public. There is a beautiful Botanical Gardens as well, that is lovely to walk around in. We could even have a picnic in the park, if anyone was interested.  There are lots of bars and a great foodie scene, as well. If any events during that weekend come up, I'll post them here as well. :)

If anyone wants to organize specific outings as a group, just post and we can use this thread for planning.

UPDATE: For hotel reservation information, Bukharin has set something up for farkers at the Rennaissance Grand. To reserve a room, you can contact him at Bukharin­[nospam-﹫-backwards]kra­f­artlu*co­m

Still planning on going. Let's do this!

W00T!
 
2013-05-01 08:06:23 PM
I'm excited!  Get excited!  Is there anything else people want to do while in town?  I can arrange a few activities.  The zoo and museums are nice, the botanical gardens are gorgeous.  Lots of good places to eat, too.  I'll check the calendar and see if anything is going on that weekend.

I'm really going to try to be there. Two factors that may make it more difficult: my toddler needs a sitter and my pregnant wife may get jealous if I go without her (and thus I need to persuade her to come along as well!)

I've never been to a Fark Party, but I've realized recently that my wife and I need to get out more. Having kids has a way of destroying your social opportunities because you're just so busy and tired all the time...
 
2013-05-01 08:40:27 PM
I am almost 5 hours away but list me as a maybe.
 
2013-05-01 08:43:20 PM
I think I can make this. Any one up for Urban Chestnut pregame? If any one is coming in from out if town I would recomend getting Urban and Schlafly before leaving town.
 
2013-05-01 09:49:11 PM
Will be there.  May have to bring the offspring with me.

show me: The last one I was at was at a place that served Black Thorn Pizza; I don't know if it was the restaurant itself or just a place that served it. Was anyone else there? There were only about a dozen people there and it was, gosh, maybe 6? years ago, maybe more. We also had a guest from KC who took pictures and posted them somewhere.


I was there! Lemon's pub

show me: Okay, here are some links from what I believe was the last Fark party in STL, on January 27, 2007 at Lemmon's on Gravois. Farker Megain traveled by Amtrak from KC and took pictures. Here's the thread announcing it. Remember Myspace?:

I haven't been to STL in almost 15 years. I may be looking forward to this return trip even more than I did the original visit.

Columbia, MO farker here.  I am excited to go and meet fiends in fark-snark, but as a computer nerd, I need to ask you:
What is a Party? I have never been to one.

/seriously what

mikebellman: What is a Party? I have never been to one.


It's where you meet and hang out with other people in meat-space. Alcohol is usually involved, as it helps most of us come out of our shells and look at the other person's shoes when we're talking to them, as opposed to looking at our own shoes.
 
2013-05-02 12:37:56 AM
Well I will certainly be there.  I live across the street.  I have been waiting for an stl fark party for years,
 
2013-05-02 01:12:59 AM
I'm local and love to meet farkers however I'm also fairly introverted IRL, not a big alcohol drinker and believe in the invisible sky wizard so that's three strikes against me. I'm nervous if I go I'll end up being the guy sitting on the corner drinking bud light by myself.
Maybe we can talk porn and farkers can debate how big a hypocrite I am...

Alasastar: I think I can make this. Any one up for Urban Chestnut pregame? If any one is coming in from out if town I would recomend getting Urban and Schlafly before leaving town.


I think the plan will be to go to the Bottleworks for dinner/pregaming before hand.  I'll try to get a more accurate headcount before hand.

Hey, you should totally still come out and have a good time.  I'm pretty introverted too, but I'm excited to finally meet some Farkers.  Also, I'll probably stay sober that night as well (lightweight, have to drive, etc).  Don't worry too much what people will think, just be yourself and I'm sure we'll all get along just fine. :)

Your Boss: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Insult Comic Bishounen: I live out in O'Fallon, MO.  This could actually be feasible for me.  City Museum kicks ass anyway.

I would be all for that. The only thing worse than driving in St. Charles County after a drink is driving in St. Louis, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County after a drink.


Honestly, as long as you're not shooting anyone, you'll be fine in the City.

I AM SO IN.
clivecusslerfan: I wondered how many Farkers were in the STL area.  I'm not very comforted with that thought, though.

I wondered, too! Grew up in Weldon Springs. Live in SoCo now - work in Maplewood. I'd consider meeting up for a brew at the Bottleworks for sure!

OK, St. Louisans - time for The Question......

I'm sorry, man, I even have you Farkied as being a local. It won't happen again. I'll buy you a beer in the unlikely case that I am able to go this year.

I'd love to go, but I made the terrible mistake had the good fortune of meeting and marrying a woman from PA, so that's where we are now, raising our son. The organizer(s) picked a good place, though, so both locals and out-of-towners should have a great time.

I'm not really down for hitting city museum but if there is a group meeting at one of the many fine breweries we have I might stop by for a bit.

I lol'ed.

Saturday morning or afternoon I was thinking about spending the day in Forest Park.  There are free museums and a free zoo, so if anyone wants to hang out, shoot me an email.  Also, if anyone is interested in getting an early dinner and drinks at Schlafly Bottleworks (I'm thinking 5 pm to allow us time to digest and get to the City Museum by 7 or so), let me know.  Please EMAIL MEat stainedglassdoll at ultrafark dot com.  Once I have a better idea of how many people want to come to dinner, I may call ahead to reserve some tables.

I'm going to say the tentative meet-up point at City Museum is Cabin Inn(on the first floor, #7 on this map:  http://citymuseum.org/pdfs/map.pdf ).  I will have blank name tags for people, and will try to keep our fark headquarters there.  Hopefully it won't get too crowded!  I look forward to meeting everyone :)

I didn't read the whole thread; apologies in advance.

I have visited the St. Louis area. Also, my wife once made me watch an episode of some TV show that featured zombies and the St. Louis Arch.

This confluence of facts leads to this pointless public safety announcement: The arch in that stupid TV show is maybe a 1/10 scale model of the Arch in St. Louis. It is really farking tall. You cannot in fact climb on it unless you bring spiderman-style toys. If you would like to perceive this for yourself, you should go to the top and have a peek. It's not like being on top of a tall building; it's like being on an airplane.   Should you still be inclined to try, bring your own helicopter. Have fun with that, and please invite me. Thank you.
