Fark Party
Host: rezin8
Description: Fark in the Fall - Columbus, OH - 11/16/2013 - Drew will be there
Date/Time: November 16, 2013 - 08:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Come celebrate Fall with Drew and crew in Columbus, OH! My birthday is the day prior, so we're going to be having a little get together and Drew is planning on being in attendance. The Tilted Kilt has generously offered us 20% off of our tabs for the evening, so be prepared to get your money's worth.

I'm looking at possibly doing a tour at one of Columbus' many breweries or distilleries during the day on Saturday.

We're also looking at a group rate for the Cleveland Brown at Cincinnati Bengals game at 1pm on the 17th in Cincinnati. If you're interested in attending the football game, contact CavalierEternal (Collin).

If you don't like the location, host your own farking party. No one is forcing you to attend.

Benevolent Sock Puppet: Tilted Kilt? What, is Hooters booked solid that night?

How about the half-dozen or MORE great brewhouses and pubs located blocks from each other downtown? And yes, there are hotels nearby. The lobbyists need to stay somewhere when they're hanging around the Statehouse. I will trudge my sorry (yes, female) hinder out to this simply because I want to thank Drew for all the years of fun but I think we have better to offer Teh Squirrel King.

Columbus has some seriously great local breweries and distilleries:
Elevator Brewing Co. (website is MIA tonight for some reason)
Columbus Brewing Co.
Watershed Distillery (makers of Watershed Vodka, Four Peel Gin, Bourbon Barrel Gin, Bourbon)
Middle West Spirits (makers of OYO Bourbon Whiskey, Whiskey, Vodka, Vodka, Stone Fruit Vodka)

Probably can't accommodate the crowd but if there's time, good to check out The Pearl in The Short North. Ignore the home page music and check out the Beer Menu). Awesome oyster bar & gastropub with poutine for brunch on the weekends and crispy fried cheese curds with pepper gravy for snacking anytime.

Or how about World of Beer located in The Brewery District? Here's their Beer Menu.

Do we have to go hang in the 'burbs when we could be doing a pub crawl downtown? (We have cabs. Got 'em right around the time the hotels showed up downtown. True story.)


See my last post.  I don't see anyone else offering to set anything up, and since I've moved here in 2008 I haven't seen anyone hosting a Columbus party. So until you want to get off your ass and do the legwork involved, you have no room to biatch.
 
2013-06-30 03:09:49 PM  
You know, if we move it up one week to the 9th, there's not an OSU game at all & downtown should be just fine. Right?

I apologize.  I opened with the humor about Hooters (just joking around, eh?) and perhaps it was misplaced given that you've clearly put a lot of effort into organizing this which I did not realize.  Truly, I wasn't actually biatching.  I thought maybe there was still a window of opportunity to toss around a few ideas since it's not until mid-November and Columbus has some really cool local flavor to show off.  I would have been happy to have helped as a planner if others weighed in that downtown might be a more central location.  Please, continue on with your plans and I'm sure we'll all have a great time -- it's cool that Drew is coming into town.

I'll be there for sure.  My thanks goes to rezin8 for setting this up.

Di Atribe: You know, if we move it up one week to the 9th, there's not an OSU game at all & downtown should be just fine. Right?


Downtown isn't that bad during football games.  It's the campus area (North of DT) that you need to avoid during football games.  I'm not that familiar with the polaris area myself but it's not a bad area.  Don't know much about the bars there though.
 
2013-07-01 06:13:28 PM  
For anyone that's unfamiliar with the Polaris area and will be staying around there:
Everything at Polaris is situated either around the mall (Polaris Fashion Place) or around the JPMorgan Chase Office (As seen from Google Maps, its even bigger than the mall. 10,000 people work in this office).

Food: pretty much every chain you could imagine is at Polaris. There arent a ton of options for small local restaurants since Polaris is basically a giant mall. Ill mention two of my favorite Polaris restaurants though.
-Claudiana -  8475 Sancus Blvd  Columbus, OH 43240 - A great little Italian place in a strip mall thats within walking distance from the Tilted Kilt. They make their own pasta in house and it is delicious.
-El Vaquero - A mexican restaurant also in a strip mall on the same road as the Tilted Kilt. Its a central ohio chain of mexican restaurants, so they have a few throughout he city. Pretty good margaritas and your typical mexican food. 

Bars: There are a few that I am familiar with. Rude Dog and Average Joe's close to the Tilted Kilt and are filled with JPMorgan Chase employees during happy hours, especially on Friday. Columbus houses a lot of the technology operations, so the IT guys go out drinking most nights of the week.  Our typical happy hour is at "The Pub" that is in the Polaris Fashion Place. Its a chain so you've probably seen them all over the place, but they have a good selection of beer and a nice atmosphere.

Buckeyes are away that week, too.

The only way to make a Fark party happen is to just pick a farking location and let the people biatch (I'm paraphrasing too-old here).

Me and bow will be there, thanks for setting something up.

KoalaFace: I'm going to try to go (and that shouldn't be much of an issues, except I do have a vacation planned the next weekend also)

I work for hilton and can get a special rates on a few rooms. First 2 people to get at me either personally if you know my FB or # or in this thread, I can get 2 rooms at Hilton Garden Inn for $72 a night for that evening. (I have them booked, I will jsut put your name on them and you'll ahve to call with your credit card #)

IF I go, I will have another room at $39 a night that someone can have, also.


Did anybody take you up on this yet, and also, why haven't you been to Toledo lately hMmMMMmMm?

People just like to biatch. After the NOLA party, I quit listening.

Got mah tickets and I'm ready to butt chug.
 
2013-07-18 01:37:54 AM  
If we get at least 20 people to go to the Browns/Bengals game on Sunday, we get our group name on the scoreboard. So, hopefully enough of y'all go just so we can see "Drew Curtis' Fark.com UFIA Duke Sucks" or something like that on the scoreboard.

So it's mainly the site staff and hangers on?

I'll be there, in case no one got the sarcasm from my last post. I'm local so let me know if I can help out with anything or whatever.
 
2013-08-23 08:47:39 AM  
I am sorry to say that I will not be able to make this party, at least probably because Playstation 4 will be released the day prior.

Hrm, I might have to look at some room rates for this.

You should go, I need to give you a big ol' hug.
 
2013-10-09 09:54:40 AM  
I may have gone quiet on here, but when an Ohio FARK party pops up, you can bet I'll make an appearance.
 
2013-10-09 10:16:06 AM  

angrymacface: I'm going to go with perhaps.


I think you should go with YES.
 
2013-10-16 09:05:56 PM  

unfarkingbelievable: Teriaki: sumFrequency and I are planning to attend. Bring condoms and your party hats.

So, people go to fark parties to get laid? I can do that here.


*perk*

I was going anyway since I am in Columbus... but well.. now I am definitely.

//Crap .. that sounded a lot creepier than I wanted it to.
 
2013-10-16 09:08:33 PM  
Sounds awesome, never been to one... and I'll be out of town that week. Oh well.
 
2013-10-16 09:14:36 PM  
If you're looking for good Italian food, I can recommend Marcella's. It's across the street near the Best Buy at Polaris.Also, I think I'll be there, as I am within walking distance.
 
2013-10-16 09:21:27 PM  
Hey what's this about? There's going to be a Fark Party in Columbus? I should go. Hopefully it'll take my mind off of grad school.

I wonder if WoodyHayes knows about this.

Move it to Barley's and I'm f*cking there.

What's a Barley's?

Hey man, I've never been to Columbus! That place looks awesome.


There is also the Columbus Brewing Company
http://www.columbusbrewingco.com/

Glad I have a month to consider it, and the Buckeyes are away the 16th so traffic around Columbus shouldn't be too bad. The group rate tickets to the Bengals v Browns game sounds pretty cool as well.
 
2013-10-16 11:05:44 PM  
Holy crap I'm actually going to be in Columbus that week on business and staying downtown within walking distance of the Tilted Kilt....Divine Intervention is telling me I must go right?? (big coincidence for a guy from Oklahoma who moved to Denver 5 months ago)
 
2013-10-16 11:55:50 PM  
Ok, I'm in.
 
2013-10-17 11:00:45 AM  
I'll be there..  and I'll bring all my shoes and my glasses with me..  so I have them.
 
2013-10-17 02:34:15 PM  
I might go.  Sounds fun haven't been to C-bus since I was 20.  Since I just moved from NYC to Toledo, this could be fun.
 
2013-10-24 06:05:59 AM  
I'm in.
 
2013-11-02 09:05:18 PM  
Damn you all for planning something after I used up what little vacation I accrued (and calling in a favor for one day that I did not) on my new job! Columbus is drivable distance for me and very fun to be in.
 
2013-11-02 09:23:50 PM  
99.4% sure Plumbicon & I won't be there, tho just 2 hr drive, due to scheduling conflict.  "Thank" jnapier for PSed highway sign on pg 1, "Ohio Haven for Animal Abusers" tho.  Use for that somewhere, even if just to hold in deep reserve.
Type at ft of 1, may not bother to read 2 but go back where I belong.
 
2013-11-02 09:25:47 PM  
Im in columbus. Count me in given that my collegues that may also be farker "meet for the first time "
