Why not Jay's??
 
2013-12-31 05:10:29 PM  
Won't be here. Will be in sunny California meeting my girlfriend's family.
 
2013-12-31 05:10:31 PM  
Might actually try to make this one.
 
2013-12-31 05:23:48 PM  
That's a bit far for me, or I would.
 
2013-12-31 05:54:58 PM  
Dammit.  That's when I'll be in Washington...State.
 
2013-12-31 06:04:03 PM  
The previous weekend or the next weekend though...I'd come.
 
2013-12-31 06:27:18 PM  
hm, possibly

Wait...Jays is still open???

Sobe is usually dead until late night, in the heart of clarendon, half a block from metro, and convenient for me. Thats why I chose it. Also, a decent beer selection. If they have karaoke, ill sing. Horribly.
 
2013-12-31 08:14:13 PM  
I've never heard of SoBe. It sounds...I don't know. Like a place that would be irritating.
 
2013-12-31 08:25:13 PM  
Never been to a Fark party before, I think I can make this one.
 
2013-12-31 08:36:06 PM  
Beer?  I think I hear it calling my name.  Sure.
 
2013-12-31 08:37:09 PM  
Clarendon?  I hope you speak Peruvian and Yuppieuese.
 
2013-12-31 08:40:45 PM  
Weird. I got an automatic Fark party notification for this event, calculated at 404 miles from my location...but I'm on the west coast of Canada.
 
2013-12-31 08:45:39 PM  
Yeah, I'd probably come out for this one.
 
2013-12-31 08:52:15 PM  
So - FARK parties - what is the usual deal?

Target Builder: So - FARK parties - what is the usual deal?

Regrets. Arrest records. Chlamydia.

Me too - 404 miles away and I'm in California.  Unless the midwest somehow got skinnier..
 
2013-12-31 09:26:57 PM  
I might try to make this one too. Might be hard as Super Bowl weekend might be hard to get a day off of work
 
2013-12-31 09:28:37 PM  
I'll be there
 
2013-12-31 09:44:13 PM  
I'm 50/50 at this point but would really like to go since I've never been to a Fark party before
 
2013-12-31 09:44:30 PM  
I'd go but I don't like people.

Hell yeah it is; he even bought me a bday shot a few months ago.

Pocketninja: above mister days, across from mad rose.
 
2013-12-31 10:20:45 PM  
So are folks as douchy as on the politics tab or face to face a little less so?
 
2013-12-31 10:39:01 PM  
Holy crap a Fark party close to where I actually live? Awesome. I'm in.
 
2013-12-31 11:07:37 PM  
Miz Mezcalita and I are in!
 
2013-12-31 11:09:16 PM  
Can we get a Fark Party Ashburn?

I got a notification for 404 miles away too. Gotta be a bug, so I already forwarded it to Mike
 
2013-12-31 11:39:07 PM  
Is this within 300 feet of a school, park, or daycare center? I'm just asking for, umm, a friend.
 
2013-12-31 11:56:29 PM  
Virginia is for Farkers?

I never go to these things but I do enjoy them from the threads on a vicarious level.

Reading a Fark Party thread while drinking feels just like being there only, you know, with smaller quantities of alcohol involved and without the injudicious tattoos and police records thing.
 
2014-01-01 12:29:22 AM  
I'm in. I missed the last couple of DC area Fark Parties.
 
2014-01-01 12:34:30 AM  
I'm aware of the distance thing, haven't looked to see if it was related to meg's recode stuff earlier tonight or an unrelated glitch... because, well, new years, and bourbon.
 
2014-01-01 12:34:59 AM  
that said, it's more like 480 miles for me, and, hm.

Mike: I'm aware of the distance thing, haven't looked to see if it was related to meg's recode stuff earlier tonight or an unrelated glitch... because, well, new years, and bourbon.


So, you and Meg are both in?  It's pretty close.

Alright.  I'll be there.
 
2014-01-01 01:45:42 AM  
see ya'll there...
 
2014-01-01 02:49:42 AM  
You picked the one weekend I'm busy.

I haven't been in over 12 years, but Jay's is a wonderful bar.  Local, run down, with staff that care about the regulars.  I used to play the pinball machine and do shots with my friends (and a random waitress) after each game.  Loser always paid.

After one epic night of pinball I felt ill and ran outside to puke on the street.  When I came back in I expected to get kicked out, but the waitress just asked "on the sidewalk, or on the street?"  When my friends answered "the street" she shrugged and let us stay.  I drank for another four hours.  When I lived in Clarendon Jay's was THE neighborhood bar.  It's where drinkers went to socialize.  There was no pretense, no stupid dance music, and barely adequate cleaning standards.

Gotta love Jay's.  Sounds like they're closing shortly after the new year, though.  New development coming in.

Almost definitely meg's recode stuff from earlier :-). Releasing new code on NYE is a bit, "Hey y'all - watch this." Everything should be back to normal tho. Nothing to see. Move along now.

I work in Ashburn, so I'm all for it.

Hmmm I should do this so I wont keep being a hermit, I should bring the roomate so you all can see if the stories are true. She still needs to get an ID nearly 4 years now.
 
2014-01-01 11:07:41 AM  
Orange Line!
 
2014-01-01 01:14:28 PM  
47.6% chance for me at the moment.
I too am trying to be less of a hermit in the new year.

Seriously, any chance to shift it one week in either direction?

Yeah that type of place has no place in todays Arlington

If anything, we need more condos with ground floor shops and restaurants
