Solty Dog: MadOx75: I don't want to be that guy and biatch about the venue, but of all the places in the Lehigh Valley to have a Fark Party, why Jordan Lanes?

I was thinking of entertainment. They have bowling, pool, a bar, and karaoke. That way people don't have to sit like lumps. There is also a White Castle down the street. Jordan Lanes was one of the places I used to hang out at in Allentown. Most of the other places, Croc Rock, B&G Station, the Pig Pen and a few others are either gone or falling apart. I still go to Jordan now and again to bowl, so it just seemed logical. I would be more than happy to entertain suggestions for any future LV parties.


Gotcha. I certainly don't have a problem with your thought process as far as entertainment.  Its just with out of towners coming in, there are a lot "nicer" places to showcase what the Valley has to offer...  Not that there's anything wrong with Jordan. Its definitely easier to get to than say Revolutions (which seems like an upscale Pig Pen) or ABW.

Back when I was a regular around these parts, I tried to organize a Fark Party in Bethlehem around Christmas, so I know what a pain it can be. Seems back then no one wanted to venture out to the sticks...lol. Thankfully it didn't work out, because I planned it for Bethlehem Brew Works, and the place caught fire the week before it was supposed to happen. I gave up my party planning after that and just started going to the Jersey parties.

I remember that, Gary. That was a while ago! Isn't the Brew Works open again?
And we should definitely have another NJ Fark Party!

It was actually open later that week with limited food, as it was just a kitchen fire. A few people still came out and we had beers and soups and such...lol.

And it has been a while for the Jersey folks.  Could definitely do another shore party, before anymore of it washes out to sea or catches fire...lol.

I asked a few of 'em on Facebook if they'd be up for one.
We also shouldn't rule out Bethlehem. I never made it out there and still haven't tried the beer!

You are on the planning committee. You should have spoken up sooner. Now my hands are tied.

Probably not a good thing if you have it at the Sunny Rest.

I kinda want to go to this.

I'm not sure how many "out of towners" are considering this, and if they're going to be in town early, but because I know there are a lot of fans - the Yuengling Brewery does Saturday tours. Its in Pottsville, which is probably a 40 mile or so drive down the highway from Allentown, but for some people it could be worth the trip.  You could also get your fill of guns and stuffed (read:Taxidermied) animals at Cabelas, which is on the way there/back.  Just a thought.

/Nothin' says 'Murica like beer and guns.

You should. I'm going, and I haven't been to one since... Dayton in 07 or 08. We can be old school, and I won't command a nerf assault on your face this time.

Then come to Maryland! I don't think you can CCW here either, but I'm worth the drive.

Everybody knows there's no room at the inn in Bethlehem on Christmas.

As far as I'm aware, Lucky LaRue and I are carpooling from Charlotte NC, and if we can haul our fat asses that far, you bozos can too.

Maybe even rubenesque. I don't know.. Whichever one means "fat ass", I suppose...

Maybe I should do a prize for the furthest driven.

Just remember the dress code is PA Casual. So make sure your overalls are mostly clean, hankies should be red, and mullet should be "neatly" groomed.

Lauren and I are carpooling if I get my exams written. She doesn't know that yet.

A definite "It's possible".

I'm a long time Lurker. What are these parties like?

Maybe we can walk the ladies around the corner to the adult book store and get some bib(boobies in booth).

Ill be sure to bring my gun since its at Jordan lanes.

See above regarding a party bus.  MrsAltheaToldMe and I are great to hang with.  See location in profile.


meow said the dog: Lauren and I are carpooling if I get my exams written. She doesn't know that yet.


This, alone, is worth the trip.  I'm still not sure I completely "get" you meow said the dog, but I certainly end up reading your musings over and over again till the confusion turns to laughter.  I'm I secret fan of your style whatever it actually is.

Actually, sometimes you remind me of a badly translated set of instructions or a manual of some sort.

Hm, I have never been to a Fark party. Might be fun.

Fark party in Allentown? Oh hell yeah! This NEPA farker will be there.

Nice to see you're still repping the homeland with your username.

kayso date is fast approaching.  We're coming in from NC Friday evening, we'll need a place to crash Friday and Saturday night.  Any ideas yet on where out of town folks are staying?  I wouldn't mind sharing a room either, to cut costs.  Anyone?  Anyone?

The wife and I can help out with a place to lay your head that's about 1.5 hours from the party (and probably right in your path to the party).  We can provide a really kick-ass home cooked meal too.  That would take one night out of the equation.  If we get along, we could share a room up closer to the party for Sat too.  Our budget is limited but our hospitality is excellent.

EIP.

If I still lived in NJ, I'd be there. But I left NJ a long time ago.

AltheaToldMe: I'm willing to carpool or provide a ride to anyone in need.  If you can make it to my house or are on the way, the Deadhead Taxi is open for business.  It' will be like the 90 Foxboro show all over again (minus the midget snorting heroin and the semi-broken VW bus transporting us)

Somewhere I've got pics of this crazy-looking dude in a top hat, with a carved cane that was a bowl.  We got wasted with him one day during those shows.

unfarkingbelievable: mcsiegs: ha!  I live like 20 minutes from there.

How is 20 minutes different from like 20 minutes? Is like 20 minutes faster than regular 20 minutes?


It is in Lehigh Valley time. We have no problem driving from Bethlehem to Whitehall to pick up a friend, then to Easton, and back to Bethlehem, which is ~45 min in the car but we refuse to drive to Philly cause it's too far away.

There was a much better stick room near Coplay.  I hated going to Jordan and dealing with the punk kids who thought they were hot stuff.

That place is still open?  That is easily the sketchiest porn shop I've ever seen.  Even the streetwalkers seem to stay away from it.

Might be able to do this if I go directly from work. Surprised that this wasn't in HA! HA! QUAKERtown.

I used to live in the Leaky Valley and went to college there at Muhlenberg in Allentown.  It was really a very nice place and back then in the 60s there was a place called the Lyric Burlesque that had baggy pants comics and strippers on Saturday night (two shows) that supported concerts in the park in the summer.  It is now long gone, I believe, but it was cool for us college students that at the time who hadn't seen a naked woman.  I hope you all really enjoy.

I'm assuming these things last quite a few hours, yes?

Every time a FARK party happens that's relatively close to where I live, I always have some conflict.  This case is no exception, but it's only an hour away, so I might be able to sneak out of my conflict early to at least show up late.  (I'd be coming from the NNW sticks area of Jersey.)

Put me down as interested, and I'll see what I can do.

Update: There will be glow bands passed out for out of staters to make them feel welcome. We are considering a prize for furthest traveled. It won't be anything extravagant. Just a little something to remember us by.

I'll donate a bacon scented IronPigs t-shirt to the cause.  The only issue with that is size, so it may be helpful to get an idea of who's coming from where before hand.
