Fark Party
Host: Skyday
Description: FARK party in Chicago. Monday, October 7. Going to the Art Museum, getting pizza and drinking (OF COURSE). Woo
Date/Time: October 7, 2013 - 10:00 AM (local time)
Party Info: HOST: Skyday

The party is ALL DAY at a few places:

We can meet up for brunch somewhere then we are going to the art museum.

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:

This art museum rocks, it has armor and swords and all kinds of awesomeness aside from the obvious collection of traditional paintings, etc.

Next we are going to get PIZZA! I believe Bukharin has this place already picked out since he is local.

Finally, we need a bar. Any suggestions?

BTW, this is all day. People may come and go as they please.

~Skyday

Skyday promoting daytime drinking? This is crazy!

Oh yeah that makes a world of difference! My bad!

Can I vote against this?

I would be interested in the Thorne Rooms.  Is this the museum with the Thorne Rooms?

I'm too lazy to look because I'm not actually going to fly to Chicago for a Fark party.

I have like a job and stuff during the day.

Guys, I'm pretty and I've lost some weight in the last few months.  Lemme go take a selfie in the bathroom, brb.

/how am I doing?

Sorry, but I'll be attending the Sioux City Fark Party that day.

First of all, it's taken me a year. Second of all, I take selfies in my office. GAWD.

Also:

It is all day because some people will be at work (unless you have one of those government jobs) and MBK and Buk are already going.  So, if people are free and want to meetup at the museum or if they are not free during the day, they can just meet us at the pizza place or the bar after work or something.  Tada!  It's flexible fun...like having sex with a dancer or yoga instructor  :)

I personally thought you were cuter when you were fat. Nicer, too.

I only go to official Fark parties if that guy who helped plan the NOLA one is involved.

I heard the key ingredient to Chicago style pizza is the genetically modified pizza crust.

I could go... but I don't want to.

It doesn't :)  I forgot the name of it so whenever Buk gets back in this thread he'll remind me what it is called.  woo!

Read the entire thing...  it's all day.... people can come and go as they please...there is brunch then the museum starts at 10am because it takes all day to go through that thing...afterwards is the pizza/drinks  Do I need to write a script to repeat this?

Sky!
 
2013-10-01 08:17:48 PM
I wish I could go to this. Stupid work and having to work.
 
2013-10-01 08:30:53 PM
And here I thought Art museums still closed on Mondays.

I live in downtown Chicago ... I've never been to a Fark party.

I hate museums, I don't drink, I don't like Chicago style pizza and I'm not particularly social.

Should I go?
 
2013-10-01 08:39:59 PM
It's an Institute, not a Museum.

Y'all probably need to be institutionalized anyway.

What a Chicago Fark party might look like.
 
2013-10-01 08:45:13 PM
It's the Art Institute. God.

; )

The Elephant & Castle is a great pub, right across the street from the Cultural Center, at Lake and Wabash.

LordOfThePings: It's an Institute, not a Museum.


The difference is academic. It's chock-full of art.  I was just there two months ago.

This sounds fun as hell and I'm sorry to miss it.  I'd love to go to a prominent art museum with some of you f*ckers.

I'll be there.

I bet a lot of people with functioning taste buds skip the pizza part considering the location

skullkrusher: I bet a lot of people with functioning taste buds skip the pizza part considering the location


Nobody who lives here eats that deep dish stuff more than once in a blue moon, if that.

However, I will laugh if they go to Gino's East or one of those junky tourist places.

I will officially be "ancient" on Oct. 7
 
2013-10-01 09:04:32 PM
For lunch downtown, the Berghoff Cafe is a good inexpensive non-tourist, non-chain option. Same kind of food as the restaurant, but it's cafeteria style.

It's in the basement of the Berghoff restaurant, just a block west of the Art Institute Michigan Ave entrance.

Hmmm....interesting. Maybe I will stop by wherever the drinking will be happening since I work right there.
 
2013-10-01 09:09:40 PM
 Last time I was in Chicago I couldn't find any pizza. Sure, there was this stuff they called "pizza", but it wasn't really.
 
2013-10-01 09:12:37 PM
As for bars, there is the Bergoff (mentioned upthread) and an Elephant & Castle at Clark and Adams (a different one than the one mentioned upthread), though I guess it kind of depends on where you're going for pizza for convenience. I'd personally suggest someplace in River North for a bar - I like the Hubbard Inn, though there are plenty of others around, too.
 
2013-10-01 09:17:01 PM
If you want an alternate to the Art Institute, there's the Dan Clowes exhibition at the MCA. That seems pretty FARK to me. But no decent bars nearby unless you want to drop some serious cash.
Recommended: Skylark in Pilsen and Maria's in Bridgeport. I'm also partial to the Blind Robin in Ukrainian Village and Archie's at Iowa & Rockwell, just a few blocks away. And if you want to go ghetto old school, I heartily endorse Loop Tavern on Chicago at Ashland.

Doh! ... Fark party in Chicago the week I'm in Germany....
