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

I've always wanted to go to this museum. Too bad St. Louis is, like, halfway across the country.

Hmm. I work in St. Louis and live in the Metro East. I'll certainly mark myself as a "maybe."
 
2013-03-18 12:45:38 PM

St Louis? Make it Kansas City, much more of a fun place to party.
 
2013-03-18 12:57:40 PM  
City Museum is awesome!  When we took the kids there though, I couldn't get big red letters of "DEATH TRAP!" from flashing in my mind's eye, but it was a lot of fun.
 
2013-03-18 12:58:49 PM

2013-03-18 12:58:52 PM

2013-03-18 01:02:04 PM  
I used to work in that building when it was part of the Direct Mail Corporation of America. Fun fact: The giant Praying Mantis used to worked in HR. If you got a letter saying you've been approved for a 10% pay raise and all you had to do was swing by HR to sign do some papers, don't do it. It was a trap.

Nice! just moved here almost a year ago and hear the City Museum is awesome
 
2013-03-18 01:17:13 PM  
Count me in. Hell, I can get drunk, stumble to the Metrolink and then stumble home.
 
2013-03-18 01:20:43 PM

2013-03-18 01:21:31 PM  
I might be able to make that one.
 
2013-03-18 01:22:09 PM

2013-03-18 01:25:59 PM  
I think I might have to organize a road trip from Chicago, mostly because I'm dying to meet Korben.
 
2013-03-18 01:26:01 PM  
I might be able to make that.

Mid coast for life
 
2013-03-18 01:36:07 PM  
I went to one years ago, so I just might show.
 
2013-03-18 01:37:58 PM  
The best place on earth. If only I could go back.
 
2013-03-18 01:38:16 PM  
Bookmarked in case I can make it....
 
2013-03-18 01:40:45 PM  
Schlafly Tap Room or Bottleworks?  I know the Manager.

Man, even more incentive to move back to STL.

But the City Museum?  I've only been there a handful of times, but every time I did it was  children climbing on everything.  Seems like it'd be weird for a bunch of drunk farkers to show up for the museum playground.

I feel like some of my STL friends told me they have adults-only hours?

Anyway, Kansas Citian here who might consider Megabusing over.

/All you other cranky KC folks who wish there was a party organized here, well...we're the ones who'll have to organize it. There's what, like 10 KC farkers?
 
2013-03-18 01:48:36 PM  
That's easily road-trippable.

good to see someone gets it

As long as my schedule holds, count me and the wife in!

I do live in the immediate area too, so if I can be of any assistance with the organizing/logistics, please let me know. (EIP)

I LOVE the City Museum! I'm based in San Francisco, but we have always gone to STL annually to visit my mom's family, and each time we hit up the City Museum. You leave in great pain and covered in bruises, but it's so worth it. I even tinkered with holding a destination wedding there.

CSB: I was very drunk there a few years ago, when climbing through some mesh tube about 50 feet up, my wallet fell from my back pocket and into the massive ball pit below. It had lots of cash and my ID, which I needed to catch my flight the next day. So I staggered down and drunkenly yelled into the ball pit to all the kids, "whoever finds my wallet gets $20." About a dozen kids started diving through the pit, until one found it. Some of my cards had fallen out during the experience, and he dove back in and retrieved every one of them. Earned his $20.

After 5 pm on weekends, minors require adult supervision.

Sounds good!  When we get closer to the date and more activities spring up, we can stop, collaborate, and listen.

If we do a park outing during the day, I promise I will bring him.

I live out in O'Fallon, MO.  This could actually be feasible for me.  City Museum kicks ass anyway.
