Fark Party
Host: Mr. Fuzzypaws
Description: Farks In The Wild at the Buffalo Zoo. July 24, 6pm, SOLD OUT, After Zoo at Nietzsche's, ~10pm. The Final Countdown
Date/Time: July 24, 2013 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Yes, I know, it's a Wednesday. Deal.

A couple of my favorite things are watching exotic animals and getting drunk. So come join me at the Buffalo Zoo's annual Wines In The Wild and we can do both together.

It basically goes like this: They hand you a wine glass at the door, you get a beer mug at a vendor and you double fist it for 3 hours. Food is also included in admission.

It's $45 for the general admission. General Admission is SOLD OUT $100 for VIP. VIP IS SOLD OUT.

There is still the after Zoo Party!

The after zoo party will be at Nietzsche's. They have live music every night. My guess is with all the traffic around the zoo we should be able to all make it there by 10. Well before if you leave the zoo earlier, some are only going to Nietzsche's.

Still working on who's playing and what cover there might be. 5 bucks would be my guess. Type of music is up for grabs.

I'll be there rain or shine. I'm going VIP so I'll be there to great anyone that decides to come.
 
2013-04-04 05:33:34 PM
I'll be there. Sounds interesting.
 
2013-04-04 05:35:29 PM
I'm not a drinker, unfortunately, but I'm tempted to show up if there is a good showing from Fark.

I parsed that as "Farts in the Wild."

That sounds like fun.
 
2013-04-04 05:37:47 PM
I forgot to mention that it's just a couple blocks from a crap ton of bars so after zoo is not a problem. I just wouldn't know where to go.
 
2013-04-04 06:15:30 PM
The zoo is open at 6pm? More details please.
 
2013-04-04 06:44:12 PM

KawaiiNot: The zoo is open at 6pm? More details please.


The zoo closes for regular visitors early that day (not sure when right now). But it opens back up at 5 for VIPs and 6 for regular ticket holders.

I'll try to find out ASAP any questions you may have.
 
2013-04-04 07:05:46 PM
Hmm.  *checks schedule*

I think I'll be able to join :D
I'm off Wed/Thurs that week.   Just need info for near-by hotel.  Or if the party goes elsewhere later, where is a good/central location to bunker for the night.
 
2013-04-04 07:21:51 PM
I don't know if I'll be back in town that week or not yet.  Summers are somewhat flexible.  If I'm around, I'll show up.
 
2013-04-04 07:26:35 PM
I'll be there!

A nearby hotel idea is most welcome.

Otherwise it is the Red Roof in Williamsville near the airport :)
 
2013-04-04 07:31:09 PM
I hope I got in for the VIP:

"Thank you for submitting your registration for this event. We will process your registration as soon as possible, and will notify you when complete.

Thanks for supporting The Buffalo Zoo!

Sincerely,
The Buffalo Zoo"


I freaking love the zoo!
 
2013-04-04 08:26:06 PM
Dammit.  Definitely one of those times I wish I were back living in WNY...

I stayed at the Hyatt a few years ago in downtown. It wasn't bad, and it was a short walk to the subway which also stops near the zoo.

Wish I could make this. I had a great trip at that zoo when I was in college.
 
2013-04-04 09:00:21 PM
Holy sh*t, something close-ish to home?! I love Fark, but am more of a lurker. I'll have to ponder. So cool though. Yay WNY!
 
2013-04-04 09:22:58 PM
I'll be there!  My first Fark Party!  :D
 
2013-04-04 09:40:40 PM
I just wrote the Detroit Zoo and asked them to have one here.
 
2013-04-04 09:53:34 PM
Day after my birthday, first fark party? Just might do it...
 
2013-04-04 10:10:56 PM
Damn, it is mid week....it is unlikely that we will make it. Which is sad because i like buffalo.
 
2013-04-06 08:28:03 PM
So this is all you can drink? Don't care for wine that much when I want to get blotto. But I hope its going to be something better than Bud or Coors served. Been a few years since I have been to the Buffalo Zoo, where will everyone meet up?

This is an all you can eat and drink thing. Sample size but in 3 hours you can sample a lot of stuff, and some vendors do fill you up. But they do have the right to refuse you just like a bar and have cut off zoo keepers because they were too drunk. As far a beer goes, it's all local micro brews. Matter of fact that goes for everything there, all local. No Bud or Coors here.

As for meeting up I am going VIP and will get in an hour before general admission. I will station myself next to that entrance wearing my TotalFark shirt. I will try to get another Docent to have a Safari Cart there so it'll be obvious where I am.

Last Fark Party in Buffalo we stayed at the Comfort Suites in on Main street.   It's beside the rail line. According to the transit website (and Google) it's about 25min ride to the zoo.   ...need the check the return times though.

Hooray!

Mine arrived in the mail today. #s 304 + 305 non-vip

Bumped it up so maybe some weekend people will see it.
 
2013-04-20 04:48:23 AM
It's a wednesday....but it's far enough out I might be able to get the day off. I work two days a week, long shifts, but maybe. I'll let you know later.
 
2013-04-20 04:57:05 AM
I've never been to Buffalo before.  I imagine it to be void of attractive women for some reason.
 
2013-04-20 08:49:04 AM
IDEA STEALER!

2013-04-20 09:21:07 AM
This is very interesting. Never has a Fark party been so close to my house.

Hotel suggestion: Hampton Inn downtown. Near train and bars/clubs/food.

As for after, I'd recommend Cole's on Elmwood Ave.
 
2013-04-20 09:51:25 AM
It would be funnier if we could get the gorillas drunk.

You are not totally wrong.

The women here have really nice skin from lack of sun.

This is true.

I didn't say he was right.  I just said he wasn't totally wrong.

Dear God, no.

The Holiday Inn on Delaware Ave is reasonably priced, conveniently located, and... not a Red Roof Inn.  I'd look there-ish.
 
2013-04-20 01:33:07 PM
How apropos that a zoo visit is hosted by Mr. Fuzzy Paws!

 I heckle animals. Is that wrong?
 
2013-04-20 05:10:24 PM

Paranoia-': IDEA STEALER!


Didn't I find the beer fest thing at the Philly zoo for you? :P

Yes.

Yeah, probably. =P

I'm just upset because I won't be able to make it, lol.

Screw Cole's.  That stupid divider sucks.  Why not Blue Monk?

How about Electric Avenue?

One of my tenants works there. Maybe we can arrange something... Nah, I need him to keep his job.
 
2013-04-20 10:53:55 PM

I'll fix that once I arrive.

Good call.

I might even take Thursday off. I like this idea more and more.
 
2013-04-28 05:42:47 PM
I used to live in Buffalo but I'm not going to be able to make it in July since I'll be there at the end of May. It'd be fun to meet some of you then if anyone is up for it - problem is I'm only there over one full weekend and it involves a wedding, so getting together may involve a weekday. any takers?
 
2013-05-03 12:38:47 PM
Just added the URL for the Facebook event page. It wouldn't let me link it for some reason so you'll have to C&P.

I know it's a couple months away but I'd like to start getting a head count. It does sell out. I bought my ticket last year at the beginning of June and got number 2300 something. They only sell about 2500 tickets and there a lot of alcoholics in Buffalo. I know some people are "maybes" but that won't work here for long.

So far I got:

Myself, AlleyOop & guest, and feckingmorons (if his ticket went through, which I imagine it did).
 
2013-05-03 01:29:07 PM
Oh, and for anyone that's going to be in town during the day with nothing to do I'll give the first FIVE people that EMAIL me a free group tour, admission included. I can get a few people in that back gate at no charge, one of the perks of working there. :)

12 noon sharp. I'm fairly certain the zoo proper closes at 2pm that day for setup so it will only be a couple hours. What you do between then and showtime (5 or 6) is up to you. Don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.
 
2013-05-03 01:34:49 PM
Buffalo has a zoo? How do they prevent the animals from panicking with all those burning buildings/fire around them?
