Fark Party
Host: GWSuperfan
Description: I know it's right before NOLA, but Drew will be at Stone Brewing in Escondido on 4/2. So, FARK PARTY
Date/Time: April 2, 2013 - 05:30 PM (local time)
Party Info: What do Drew Curtis of FARK.com,Wil Wheaton, and Stone Brewing CEO Greg Koch all have in common? They're brewing a very special collaboration beer together at Stone! The beer itself is still a secret, but you can meet the co-conspirators at a casual Brewday Eve meetup. Join the guys for special beers at our outside bar and perhaps they'll spill the beans after a pint or two!

"Escondido" means "hidden". Why do they call it "hidden"? Can people not find it? How can you live there if you can't find it? Who are these people?

Ruination FTW!

Was just there a couple weeks ago. Love that place.
 
2013-03-26 06:44:17 PM  
You guys still suck!! There's no way in Hell I could ever make this, even if I had vacation time, but I'm totally jealous.

5:30pm on a Tuesday?  In Esconfarkingdido?  Have you heard of Golden Road Brewing?  Great beer and they're not out in the sticks.
 
2013-03-26 07:04:33 PM  
Great place, GREAT beer.

/have made the trek to Stone twice from TX and well worth it.
 
2013-03-26 07:05:03 PM  
I can't make it but would definitely recommend the Stone IPA.  I got "stoned" on it at a conference in San Diego last year and it was a wonderful brew.

This got bumped?

I'm not going to quote and respond individually to all the folks that are complaining about the time and location of this shindig.

The reason it's in Escondido is that that's where Stone is. The reason it's at Stone is that Stone asked Drew and Wil to collaborate on a beer. The reason it's at 5:30 on a Tuesday is that that's when Stone scheduled the event. We're just piggybacking on their little soiree.

To all the people complaining that Escondido isn't San Diego- it's in San Diego county, which is close enough for our purposes. I'd rather not hear any biatching about how far it is, since I have gotten on planes and driven 2+ hours more than once to attend Fark Parties. If you can't make it, I'm sorry, but that's no reason to go off on folks who had nothing to do with picking the time and location (namely: myself and the rest of the Fark community)

You'll get over it.

I mean, hey, if it weren't for biatching and whining would Fark continue to exist?

I'm used to driving 2+ hours to see you,

/done it soooo many times.

I don't suppose you want to swing by MN while you're at it... :D

I think you *may* just have a little competition from a certain someone. :)
 
2013-03-26 07:53:28 PM  
Also, all of you that are biatching about the time/location: STFU already. If you don't like it, don't go-but don't be a whiny biatch about it.

As for distance, I recently flew 1600+ miles for a Fark party, so I'm getting a kick, ect.

Also: No one is stopping you from organizing an actual San Diego party. Do it yourself if you don't like the farking location already.

Wellon Dowd: mephisto6: Nuh-uh... nobody goes to Escondido on purpose

It's not just a trip to Escondido; it's a trip to an industrial park in Escondido!


That serves terrible food!

This.I cant make it as tuesday is a big prep day to get deliveries that include, oddly enough Stone and Karl Strauss products. And Escondido is a nice place and its only 3 hours from me. Sigh

*rubs eyes and wakes up from 9 years of on and off lurking.* Okay...I'm in.
 
2013-03-26 09:37:59 PM  
So I'm pretty much a lurker, but I've been lurking since fark was in its infancy (Something like the year 2000?  Maybe it was as late as 2001, but I think it was 2000)  Anyway, this will be the first fark party I've ever been too!  I'm probably more excited about this than I should be...

2013-03-26 10:13:01 PM  
You roam the place of my origin, beware, for I did arise from that Tiffany and Sons wasteland.

/ when I was a kid my grandpa had a mansion that had its own name on the map.  It happened to be two doors away from where the Romney's have their California vacation mansion with the car elevator.  I'm now practically homeless.  Strange trip indeed.

Add me to the list of longtime lurkers that are likely to show!
I'll be coming up from Lakeside, I work nights and Tuesday is my Saturday so I can probably just make it up there on time for breakfast!

/Shut up, I know Lakeside is a shiathole.

2013-03-30 01:40:01 AM  
How long is the party going to last?  I probably couldn't make it before 7:30 or so, but I expect Wil and Drew's agents will already have whisked them off to their next gig by then, which means the party will be pretty much dead.

timujin: 5:30pm on a Tuesday?  In Esconfarkingdido?  Have you heard of Golden Road Brewing?  Great beer and they're not out in the sticks.


Stone Brewing is where Drew & Wil are colloborating on brewing craft beer, so another brewery really isn't an option.

Right, what I meant was that they could have collaborated as a different brewery.  It's much closer to Wil, too, as he's in Pasadena (or at least was a couple of years ago)

I might be wrong, and sorry to threadjack, but I think Wil knows Greg ( read that somplace ) so.. of course its gonna be at Gregs brewery.

Is it just me, or did anyone else read that and imagine FBI agents whisking Drew away with a beer in his hand?

Darn, I used to live in Escondido, only missed the party by 43 years.
 
2013-04-02 02:34:46 AM  
If possible, could you guys take a group pic with a "Get Well Mike" sign, for v_b, like they did in SF? That'd be really nice and I'm sure he'd get a big kick outta that :)
 
2013-04-02 03:03:15 AM  
Drew should hold off til Sunday when they're having Oakquinox!

Hell yes I have tickets...

As far as I know Drew will be at the World Fark Party III in New Orleans. It runs from April 5th-April 7th.

I used to live in Poway back then (1969-1972). We'd head up 395 to Escondido to go shopping.

Thanks. A pic for him would be really appreciate I'm sure, guys and dolls. Mike had a setback this morning and could use all the prayers and good thoughts you all can send his way.

Wish Chris and I could join you all tonight, have a blast. Stone makes some good stuff.
