Fark Party
Host: GWSuperfan
Description: North San Diego County party at Stone Brewery 5/15. 6:00PM -Note Date Change
Date/Time: May 15, 2013 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: TFette Beatlefreak will be in town, so we're having a little shindig. Good food, good beer, and good company on tap, so come on out!

I hate to change the date, but Beatlefreak has to return to the frozen north a couple of days earlier than anticipated. So, now we're trying for Wed. I realize this may make it harder for some people to make it :(

Is there a spot people are meeting or should I just assume it's the group of overweight balding guys?

/not going.

PapaChester: Stone brewery is fun times, and Escondido is one of my favorite South-of-L.A. cities.


Wow, of all the places in SD county, one of your favorites is Escondido?  Escondido is the drunk driving/immigration roadbock that you pass through on your way to/from Harrah's or to hit the lobster buffet at Valley View.

But it's better than LA and LA is a shiat hole.


can't & will not argue with that.

WTF, dude, I mean, seriously...way to assume!

/overweight balding guy...*sigh*

Actually- just look for the guy that looks like Evan Stone with a laptop in the outside seating area. :P

Honest question:

What is the purpose for the gathering?  I've been reading the comments and I'm a bit confused.

Is this a "let's see with whom we can have sex" thing or simply a "get to know people with a common interest" thing?

I don't feel comfortable going to something where the primary expectation is to "hook up".

/Please don't make fun of me...I don't do "social" very well.

WhoGAS: simply a "get to know people with a common interest" thing?


That one. Hookups *have* been known to happen at Fark Parties, but they are not the primary purpose.

Okay.  Thank you.  And thank you for answering without snark. It's frightening for people like me to make these social leaps.

At least it's local :) I had to get on a plane to attend my first Fark party.

Has there ever been an Australian Fark party?

Habeas Porpoise: Has there ever been an Australian Fark party?


Not that I'm aware of. I don't know if AUS has a high enough Farker density to make it happen, but it might be worth exploring. We've got several Navy guys on the site, so if they ever made a port call, that might be a good excuse.
 
2013-05-01 08:09:00 PM  
Awwww yisss....

I'm planning on showing up.

Looking forward to meeting Beatlefreak!

Sounds good.

There must be a few Australian farkers, given the number of links to local papers

Huh. Wife and I might make it to both evenings ...

Other than Stone, or other breweries around there, why?


Vincent's on Grand. Consistently one of the best restaurants in SD county.
 
2013-05-03 03:24:28 AM  
Mm...will need to see if I can make it now that it's in the middle of the week. If not, I'll see about going on Saturday instead.
 
2013-05-08 08:09:27 PM  
I would go...

(long time farker here but I took a long ass break)

...but it's in bloody Escondido.

Places close to me:
Small Bar
Hillcrest Brewing Company
Polite Provisions
Cantina Mayahuel
Sycamore Den
Seven Grand
Uptown Tavern
URBN
Toronado
Pour House
Tiger! Tiger!
The Office
U31
Bar Pink
True Douche (I mean North)
Live Wire
Bourbon Street
Lei Lounge
Alibi
Lancers
Cheers
El Zarape (restaurant not taco shop)
Redwings
West Coast Tavern
Ye Olde Sod
The Void
Rosie O's
Gillys (mos eisley space cantina it's called lovingly - steaks on the patio during the day)
Soda Bar
...

and those are just ones that I can think of off the top of my head. I left out most of Hillcrest, South Park, Downtown and Golden Hills. I'm surprised you guys don't come down here. You can at least walk to these places.

That said if you stay in Escondido you might as well go to Churchills.

biatch, biatch, biatch...

Want a party closer to you? Throw one.

Also, there's a party being planned for ComicCon in the Gaslamp, just FYI.

Comic Con parties are a biatch to go to...speaking of biatching. I had tickets to, I kid you not, eight different parties last year. I made it to exactly...1.

I work down the street from Stone. It isn't far in that aspect but when I get off of work I do not go anywhere near the job-site! But yeah, you're throwing it, so whatever.

Just saying you would probably get a better turn out if it was closer to mid city. Or not. I hardly know the sd farkers like I used to. Also, more trouble to get into because of the large amount of establishments.

Want to do a Fark it party tomorrow(Thursday) at the Ould Sod? I am going to be there anyway. Maybe pop over to Sycamore Den.

I still swear I'm going to have a Fark Party in Borrego Springs and call it "San Diego Fark Party"

43 palms? I'm there.

I'm not a terribly big fan of Stone's over-hopped IPAs and other ales, but their Imperial Russian Stout is among my favorite beers, and most of their special releases are great.

Enthusiastically agreed. I like their stouts.
 
2013-05-12 06:55:43 PM  
i will definitely be there early.
 
2013-05-14 07:45:39 PM  

missmez: Wogus: Gawd, anywhere but Stone Brewery? Home of ridiculously over-priced, mediocre (and that's being kind) food...
And let's be honest, their beers just aren't all that great.


/wet blanket

Agreed.  Bootlegger's Brewery in OC is way better.



First off BL is crap. As are most OC brew houses.

Stone was great 5 years ago and hasn't done a single beer worth while in the time since. If you wanted good beer you would or could of picked any other brewery in town.
 
2013-05-14 07:54:29 PM  
Moving from Dallas to San Diego on the 28, so I'll catch you next time farkers.
 
2013-05-14 07:57:49 PM  

VivianVivisect: i will definitely be there early.


To set up the stripper pole?
 
2013-05-14 08:30:09 PM  

GWSuperfan: Indeed, but that was during the week (which people biatched about). Plus, we have a different out-of-town guest this time.


Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't 5/15 (tomorrow) a Wednesday?  Which would be, unless I'm crazy, during the week?

It got moved to the middle of the week. Which is a shame. I went to the one a couple months ago at Stone Brewing and it's a great place, but not making the drive again in the middle of the week. It's just too far.

But have fun everyone!
 
2013-05-14 08:43:17 PM  
Since I'm the newbie ere I was trying to free up my schedule to stop in and say hi. But I'm flying tomorrow and may not get back in time. Next time
 
2013-05-14 08:47:32 PM  
I'll probably be a bit after six. I got class until five, then I'll head home and get cleaned up.
 
2013-05-14 08:53:34 PM  

Supes: not making the drive again in the middle of the week. It's just too far.


I'll be out there on Saturday, too. Beatlefreak's travel schedule changed, so she couldn't stay for Saturday, but show up and find me on Saturday and I'll buy your first beer.

yeah - Stone is down the street from where I live, and I'd have gone then but I was out of town.  I'd go tomorrow, but...it's during the week :)
 
2013-05-14 10:00:21 PM  
damnit, I used to live stumbling distance away from there I HATE WISCONSIN,  GODAMITSOMUCH
 
2013-05-15 07:10:01 AM  
Remember, folks, the NTSB recommends that the drunk driving limit should be 0.05% BAC, so be safe and don't consume more than two beers or one martini...
 
2013-05-15 07:38:52 AM  
Can someone please retask the satellite that microwaves the metals in rocks given the change in schedule?

Don't forget about Air Conditioned Lounge with its cool sunken lounge area.

If people are looking for us, we are in the outside bar area at the big rock.

We have balloons!
 
2013-05-15 10:29:15 PM  
Fashionably late... ETA 8pm
 
2013-05-16 01:42:14 PM  
Sorry, couldn't make it.  Nursing a sick kid...she has surgery soon so maybe next time.

Life of a single dad...we never get out when we plan to.  :o)
 
2013-05-18 07:43:03 PM  
If anyone wants to come out for the make-up date, I'll be out at Stone tonight from 6-8 or so (maybe a hair later if people want to hang out)

Outside bar, I'll be the guy with shoulder-length hair wearing a black t-shirt, khakis, and flip-flops.
 
2013-05-18 09:13:30 PM  
Totally would but already made plans :( bummer
