Fark Party
Host: Alpha Sierra Foxtrot
Description: The 75th Annual DragonCon Fark Party - Saturday, August 30, 1pm at Big Kahuna, Atlanta, GA
Date/Time: August 30, 2014 - 01:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: They had such a nice patio for us last year, that I figured it would be just a dandy idea to meet up there again. Burgers & tacos, beer & spirits, you know the drill.

Plus, it's outside the convention, so if you're not actually going to DragonCon, you can still come have lunch.

Judging by last year, the parade had pretty much dispersed by this point...and like I said last year: I'm marching in the damn parade and still showing up, so you can, too.

The best parking is in the Suntrust Plaza parking deck which is literally in the same building as the restaurant. Plus, if you eat, Big Kahuna will validate your parking.

Let me know if you have any questions/concerns. I mean, I don't really care and I probably won't answer, but you can message me for your own peace of mind.
 
Location: Big Kahuna
303 Peachtree Center Avenue Suite PCA-01
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 343-0409

Damn. Fark is older than I thought it was.
 
2014-07-31 02:36:29 PM  
I'm there. Come hang out.

I had no idea Fark had been around for 75 years.

Also DragonCon.

I feel subby might have taken some creative license with the truth. Or drugs.

Sometimes, I amuse myself.

The best parking for me is at the MARTA station near my house. I can sober up on the ride back to my car.

I think you're in the wrong thread for that.

I love that shot. That perspective of downtown means that is Freedom Parkway. No wonder all those schmucks died. That's heading IN to town.

I don't think I can make the party, but watch for me in my namesake costume on Sunday.

I keep looking at that shot, and I don't think that's a composite photo.  The angle of the road doesn't match the skyline.  If you are going north from Freedom Parkway, that right side of the road is a giant wall along the Grady curve and south Buckhead.  And you'd be much closer to the skyscrapers.  Where are the road signs?  Billboards?

They took an ATL skyline and patched it with a highway from...somewhere.

In the same way that I lurk on Fark, I will likewise lurk at the party.
 
2014-07-31 09:29:37 PM  
But the Georgia Tech game starts at 12:30.
Granted, they are just a few blocks apart, but I still can't do both.

Match it up to the little cylinder of the elevator on peachtree plaza for orientation.

We have a friend who cosplays Jules. He sauntered up to the bar and ordered "a Big Kahuna Burger and a Sprite." The guy taking the order didn't get it and we were all sad.

I believe the actual highway is mostly CGI and the guy on the horse was actually walking down a...shoot...what are they called...a reservoir basin? Where the stereotypical bad kids go to skateboard when a move calls for that cliché.

Yay, my boys!

As long as there is no MST3K panels going on... I'll show up and lurk as well.

I can probably talk Bill Corbett into showing up, if that'd help. Mike Phirman and Phil Plait did last year.

Welp... I'm in. I've been farking about 13 yrs, about time I met some other farkers.

After lurking for well over a decade, I might very well make this my first Fark party. How does the bar feel about cosplayers?

Consider it's happening DURING DragonCon, I don't think they have much of a choice
 
2014-08-16 02:17:08 PM  
Neat, Atlanta.  I'll probably be at dragon con too.
 
2014-08-16 02:30:13 PM  
Man, I really want to go.
 
2014-08-16 02:36:00 PM  
Sorry I hate crowds.  Otherwise it is just a few miles away.
Despite my big internet mouth, I'm a bit shy around people.

If you are trying to kiss up to Drew by insinuating he looks good for his age you should stop. He's not going to sleep with you.

..... actually, scratch that, he probably will.
 
2014-08-16 03:23:32 PM  
Will there be a ball pit?
 
2014-08-16 03:26:57 PM  

Shostie: Damn. Fark is older than I thought it was.


It's been around for a long time. I remember when your mom used to post.

(I'm sorry, there was a cheap joke there and I *HAD* to do it.)

I can't farking go this year. I love my husband very, very much, but he wasn't thinking quite straight (he doesn't do cons) and he scheduled this big-ass move we're making to Midtown on those exact days. All of our money's in that, so... can't go. It's killing me. Patrick Farking Stewart is coming,  Cary Elwes is gong to be there. I could (and will) just cry.

(I wanted to make it to the Fark panel last year. I was planning on getting in the Q&A line and asking if anyone knew where fb- went, because he hasn't paid child support for years.)

So you all have a drink for me. Have 12, it's a con. Maybe next time. Goddammit.

(I see Adam Baldwin's back on the guest list. Are people still taking bets on whether he'll show up or not?)

You should swing by. The crowd at Big Kahuna won't be that bad. Besides, I'll be there. What other reason do you need?
 
2014-08-16 03:38:17 PM  
Whoa!  Dragon Con, Chick Fil A Kickoff game at the Dome, Tech at Grant Field, and a Fark Party all on the same farking day?!  Holy FSM!  I'm very glad I'll be many miles away on the beach.  Well, except for Alabama and West Virginia at 3:30.  Roll Tide Roll!

You bastard, I was *drinking*. You owe me a new keyboard.

/"bastard" used lovingly
//admins should mess with the filter and make "bastard" come out as "Jon Snow". It'd probably be really funny
 
2014-08-16 03:40:55 PM  
Oboy! Finally a good use for that Richard Jewel costume I've been saving up!
 
2014-08-16 03:53:41 PM  
I shall be going this year again and stuff. Also Mike better hang out with me again this year.
