For a review / article about the last Calgary Fark party that isn't dripping with vitriol, check here.

AHHH! Cruel fate, why do you mock me so?

The filter keeps throwing away the link as unfetchable. Here it is in plaintext for your own copy and paste needs.

2004-01-15 08:32:24 AM  
Clagary? Isn't that where they hung Jesus?
2004-01-15 08:48:18 AM  
I'll be there again.

Great idea,

Need any help organizing? Maybe we should get a sponsor to help pay for the beer. yea, that would be great, maybe a door prize, that would be cool, especially if I win, that would be really cool. I would like SbB to sponsor the event, anybody else think so?

Why hold it in Calgary, why not a road trip? How about Balzak? I've never been to Balzak. I'll bet they have a bar in Balzack, maybe even a Legion, a Legion with cheap beer. Not that I'm cheap or anything, but cheap beer is cheap beer.
2004-01-15 09:56:23 AM  
Name the date, time, and I may possibly be there
2004-01-15 10:02:46 AM  
wtf kind of thread is this
Hey remember theres a fark party in Calgary... be there... u know, in Calgary, one of the largest cities by area in the world... so, be in Calgary
see you there
2004-01-15 10:13:26 AM  
So far this is sounding even lamer than a calgary.general party. Who is organizing this thing? Other than a Date, there is nothing. Even saying a random bar/pub/street corner in the post would have been useful.

So... Lets say it will be at the Ship and Anchor, and then someone else can suggest something better.

p.s. I wont be going.
2004-01-15 10:16:53 AM  
according to the previous notice of the Jan. 29th fark party wasn't BottleScrew Bills suppose to be the site?
2004-01-15 10:46:15 AM  
Didn't you guys have a party last week??

Tired of drinking alone I take it.
2004-01-15 10:48:39 AM  
Hey I wanna see that movie waydowntown.

anyone know where I can get it?
2004-01-15 10:58:33 AM  
How about the Subway on 7th and 1st? I hear they give out stamps with your pruchase. Could add some much needed excitement.
2004-01-15 11:05:26 AM  
Why don't we all get drunk at Olympic Plaza and then skate with no skates on until someone falls over and cracks their head open? Now thats a goddamn'd party.
2004-01-15 11:12:10 AM  
Heh. Looks like the current count is somewhere in the neighborhood of 3.
2004-01-15 11:12:42 AM  
trapped-in-CH, I have waydowntown on VHS. I got it at Roger's Video. I'm pretty much done with it though, if you ask nice and you can think of a way of exchanging info I could mail it to you.
2004-01-15 11:14:50 AM  
Iis, are you an idiot? Spell it right BALZAC. And NO, there are no bars or legions there either.

I might go, depends where the party is to be located and the time.
2004-01-15 11:18:50 AM  
Have it at the Cecil Hotel
2004-01-15 11:59:32 AM  
I would totally go if it had a hope of being organized.

With booze

and chicks

maybe some of those funky cocktail weenies

no I didn't just say cock...shut up

so yea, get it organized and I'm there.


wonders never cease
2004-01-15 12:01:43 PM  
One other thing....what kind of a lame, sorry life do you have if you go into a party string from a city you live no where near, just so you can bash them for having a party in probably the best city in Canada. Do you need to be trained for that kind of stupidity, or is it an inbreeding thing?

Just curious.
2004-01-15 12:06:07 PM  
I thought it was agreed that this one was at Bottlescrew Bills??? Anyway. I will be there after work, so around 10 or so.
2004-01-15 12:13:35 PM  
Where in the hell is Bottlescrew Bills? I get props if I bring the strippers?
2004-01-15 12:31:53 PM  
Devil's Advocate...only if you want to risk scaring away any of the real female farkers that you may have had a chance with otherwise.
2004-01-15 12:36:59 PM  
Bottlescrew Bills:

Corner of first and tenth ave (SW). Very good bottled beer selection. If I recall, they also sell prairie/rocky mountain oysters, and sell T-Shirts with "I had a ball at Bottlescrew Bill's Testicle Festival!"

Although I haven't lived in Calgary for 4 years, I would reccomend that place. Or Melrose on 17th. That place kicks ass...
2004-01-15 01:38:03 PM  
Here is the previous thread.

Don't know if I will make it, the mountains are calling to me so I might be in Panorama that night. If not, I'll saunter over from the Hop In Brew to say hi.
2004-01-15 01:55:44 PM  
Seriously... give me a reason to show.
2004-01-15 02:03:40 PM  
"according to the previous notice of the Jan. 29th fark party wasn't BottleScrew Bills suppose to be the site?"

God... My G/F lives across the road from there... just close enough to throw syte at farkers from the balcony...

No, I won't be there. I'll be at Kareoke! Aw, fark it.
2004-01-15 03:35:44 PM  
SYZYGY.....there are two types of women online....those I want nothing to do with, and those who want nothing to do with me. I'll take my chances with the people I actually know then people who are probably just as likely to be insane as I am.
2004-01-15 04:09:15 PM  
"Seriously... give me a reason to show."

Oh please please just won't be any fun if you're not there.

2004-01-15 04:34:37 PM  
Well, I may be in town then (I'm in Saskatoon right now).. a FARK party would be just like a BBS party only with less women, right??

At least I can take photos of geeks in their natural habitat - the male-only dingy pub with free internet access.
2004-01-15 05:09:09 PM  

Thanks for the offer- but I'm in europe (ex-calgarian) and I don't have VHS player. but if you still want to get in contact, check out my bio / webpage link.

with a name like SYZYGY, you didn't happen to work for EDS, did you?
2004-01-15 05:30:35 PM  
Waydowntown is terrible. Gary Burns is one of the worst directors to ever disgrace film. If he wasn't canadian, we'd never have heard of him/he'd never have got any of his "films" made.
2004-01-15 05:44:44 PM  
I'm sad because my topic rallying Kansas Farkers to a showing of Bubba Ho-Tep this weekend wasn't approved.

I mean, it'd be a Fark party and a Bruce Campbell party all in one! How can you reject that? The Admins have turned evil, I tells ya! Eeeeeevil!
2004-01-15 05:44:59 PM  
Since the stated purpose of this post is to get a head count, I hearby submit my virtual head.

From what I remember the last one was fairly entertaining, so looking forward to seeing you there.
2004-01-15 06:02:32 PM  
don't know bottle screw bills
hate melrose
ship....hey we might not be able to get in (what day is it again?) but it's a good place if you like hanging out with retards and regulars

I'll be in calgary, somebody make a decision
2004-01-15 07:39:10 PM  
Sorry for the lateness in getting info onto this thread, but I'm not exactly able to access a computer when at work. Anywho, for those still wondering what the info is, it'll be at Bottlescrew Bill's (10th Ave and 1st St SW), on the 23rd of January, 8pm.

Wow, seems like it'll be a dissapointing count compared to the one last year...
2004-01-15 07:45:52 PM  
Cool, the last Fark party in Calgary was the day after I landed in Calgary. Had a good time. Here's the location info shamelessly stolen from the other thread:

Bottlescrew Bill's Old English Pub
140 - 10 Avenue S.W.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
T2R 0A3

Someone said 8 o'clock as far as the time. Count me in!
2004-01-15 10:59:53 PM  
Hey, this sounds like fun. Jan 23rd, okay. I am looking forward to meeting some broads.
2004-01-16 12:24:48 AM  
Count me as half a person--not sure if I'll be available yet. Curious to see how many of you farkers I actually know in real life.

/still choked it's not gonna be at the Cecil.
2004-01-16 12:37:28 AM  
2004-01-16 04:25:08 AM  
Count me in.
2004-01-16 09:27:31 AM  
Mmmmm... head....

(or in other words, sure I'll be there! Just like last time! Oh. You mean I didn't actually show up last time? But I did give warning!)

Ok, so yes. I'll be there.
2004-01-16 09:51:50 AM  
add another girl to the list, i'll be there
2004-01-16 04:25:15 PM  
Well, looks like we may actually have something of a population for the party after all.

Anyways, since I'm moving tonight, and won't be back online in time for the party (thought I would be), can someone please post a reminder note about the party sometime next Thursday or Friday for me? Thanks beforehand to whomever does.

Anyways, cheers all, and see you at Bill's next weekend!
2004-01-18 05:38:54 PM  
im in like a dirty shirt.. unless of course its at the cecil..
2004-01-22 05:33:07 AM  
Well, shiat. I'm gonna have to renege. Again.

Fscking school... (sigh)
