Fark Party
Host: Unfreakable
Description: World Fark Party IV - Chicago, Illinois: October 3 - October 5
Date/Time: October 3, 2014 - 08:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: This is the fourth annual World Fark Party, to be held in Chicago this year. We're using the Lincoln Tap Room as a placeholder entry at the moment, since we'd prefer a location that can be Farkers only, rather than a public location that might cause some confusion for people that haven't attended before.

The plans are still pretty open at this point, we have some irons in the fire but are trying to work out a few details on events for Friday night and the meetup on Saturday, but we wanted to get this out to you since a lot of you need to start making travel arrangements now.

The central hub will be the Doubletree on Ohio Street:

Doubletree Magnificent Mile
300 E. Ohio Street
Chicago, Illinois 60611
(312) 787-6100
http://www.doubletreemagmile.com

We didn't do a room block this year because in years past, Farkers have preferred to make their own travel arrangements, and the room blocks weren't always necessary. This gives you all some budget flexibility, too.

I also have a group rate with both United Airlines and American Airlines which are effective if the minimum number of fliers are met. If you prefer to fly United or American, let me know and we'll see if there are enough of us to activate the discount code. I checked it against travel websites and it was about $20-$30 cheaper overall for what looked like the same flights. There might also be better seating if we use the codes and book through the airline websites directly.

Skyday: I shall be there.


There's a "I'm going" voting thing right below the party description. Would you click that?

The Lincoln Tap Room is a divey dive dive that is not necessarily easy to get to from the Doubletree by public transport.

/just sayin.
 
  2014-07-02 05:23:18 PM
Why call it a world party? What about the Euro Farkers?

Done.  (was hard to catch... two monitors + painting + tequila)
 
  2014-07-02 05:23:58 PM
Oh, I might actually make it to this one, but it involves entering the city....

/ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

It's a placeholder at the moment. I'm hoping we can narrow down a meeting place just for us that's closer to the main hotel, but I've been holding out on submitting this with that in the air and I wanted to get this out to you all.
 
  2014-07-02 05:24:44 PM
So wait, it's NOT at Hedonism II?

Crap.
 
  2014-07-02 05:24:49 PM
I could practically walk there from my apartment, but I'm going to be out of town that weekend.  Bummer.
 
  2014-07-02 05:26:28 PM
Looks like I'll be missing it this year. :(

Have fun, folks!

Club Lago does private parties, is affordable and walking distance from the double tree
 
  2014-07-02 05:26:53 PM
i thought the lincoln tap room was "farkers only" anyways, after what NaSkAr done did (RIP) ...

... we still intend to be there, weather and authorities permitting -  Quigs has a certain hockey bet to make good on :) plus all the other stuff too, of course ...
 
  2014-07-02 05:28:12 PM
That RSVP thingie right in this here thread is pretty fancy.
 
  2014-07-02 05:28:24 PM
fark YEAH, IT WOULDN'T BE A PARTY WITHOUT ME, A BUNCH OF STRIPPERS, AND BOOZE.

Eurofarkers will have their own party. On the same day, I believe. Will defer to Sir Cumference the Flatulent
 
  2014-07-02 05:30:30 PM
Oh yes.
 
  2014-07-02 05:30:36 PM

Becky and I should be there, so count me down for 2
 
  2014-07-02 05:33:03 PM
I heard Al_Ed was gonna be there...
 
  2014-07-02 05:33:08 PM
I'm fairly sure it's in the cards, unless my move gets pushed up by a couple months.

Don't forget the 6 beers you owe me, Tony.

The only thing weird about these now is that the vast majority of people that come to these things don't have post on TFD anymore.

Weird, I had you down as 12 beers. Let me scratch off the other 6

  2014-07-02 05:49:07 PM
If I drank 12 whole beers, I'd have to get treated for alcohol poisoning. We better stick to the 6.
