Fark Party
Host: DonWrite
Description: NYC Back to school special August 21 at 7PM
Date/Time: August 21, 2014 - 07:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: In this very special episode Johnny learns the dangers of mixing alcohol and amplified microphones.

First, let's meet up here:

http://rattlenhumbarnyc.com/home

14 East 33rd Street
New York, NY 10016

TABLE RESERVATION IS UNDER DON O'KEEFE

It's just a few blocks from the train no matter which one you take. After a bit, we can head elsewhere for a little karaoke? If anyone knows a place, that's groovy. I looked at one joint and it was like $10/person for a private room so we'd only have to embarrass ourselves in front of one another.

We have a few weeks, and nothing is etched in stone. DISCUSS!

I just submitted this to get the conversation started for serious, and to get it on to your calendars so to speak. I will be away for a few days, but don't let that stop you! And as always, EIP if you have a question for me.

I was hoping you'd stick around to sing Ebony and Ivory with me! :P

Aw, man.  I was going to do the Chicago trip and now I want to do this one.
 
2014-07-31 03:35:32 PM  
If there is a crazyass seat sale with Porter between now and August 20, I'll do it.  Otherwise, sorry, I'm saving for Chicago.

I'm having mixed feelings about this one.

Don, I didn't proofread this, but I assume something is spelled wrong somewhere in your invite.  XO.

I'll miss it by a week. Flying in the 14th, but just for one night.

I'll inform Mrs. Henry that I'm buggering off to the big apple for drinkipoos with my web-peeps.
I'm sure she'll be cool with it.

Are you also a joker and/or a midnight toker? Because that's one more song you could stick around for.

Fine. I'll be Joe Piscopo, and you be Eddie Murphy.

Prolly. Life's to short.

What the heck. I'm in for drinks and/or dinner, no promises on karaoke. There are like a dozen Korean karaoke places in the two-block radius though, so I'm sure you'll have fun if y'all decide to go.
 
2014-07-31 04:31:22 PM  
I get off work at 5, so will likely get some eats beforehand.
 
2014-07-31 05:13:57 PM  
I used to live on 33rd and 3rd. As a New Yorker, it's a great address. ... I'll probably show up. I can't sing, but karaoke is fun :)
 
2014-07-31 05:18:20 PM  
Depending on my financial constraints, I might pop in and say hi. :)

I could swear that there are some karaoke places that have some form of autotune. There's no way I could sing "Sweet Child O'mine" as good as my voice was coming out of the speakers.

My go-to song is Losing My Religion. Easy for any singer, I think. But, autotune would be pretty cool.
 
2014-07-31 06:29:30 PM  
At that moment I will have a glorious amount of nothing going on, so I'll show up.
 
2014-07-31 07:26:48 PM  
My go to karaoke song is "American Pie"

Everyone loves the first few choruses.

Until they realize it's an 8+ minute song.

It really works well to troll karaoke places that have "regulars"
 
2014-07-31 07:59:00 PM  
if we get a room for karaoke,  i think they let you bring your own food and drinks.
 
2014-07-31 07:59:41 PM  
in which case i might make cannoli or something
 
2014-07-31 08:20:07 PM  
Why did you people change it from Patriot to rattle and hum? Rattle and hum sucks, is overpriced, and will be packed.

I think that different places have different policies, best to check before you put a lot of work into it. (I have no idea what it takes to make cannolis.)

Also, if we're meeting up at the bar first bringing food might be frowned upon.

So much this.

the most tedious part is frying the cannoli rolls, the rest is pretty simple.  i know that one of the times i did karaoke it was in a private room and there was a byob sign in the room.  you were also permitted to bring food. places that do not serve dessert are usually ok with you bringing that, since it isnt competing with their offerings.

According to reviews apparently Gagopa is BYOB & BYOF as well as its sister location 32 Karaoke.

Karaoke Duet 35 is BYOF but not BYOB
http://www.yelp.com/biz/karaoke-duet-35-new-york

All of the bars' websites have a directory of what songs they have available.

My go-to song is John Cage's 4'33". I'm a pretty bad singer.
 
2014-08-04 08:32:17 AM  
I'll go if oldfart goes.

Me too Although, I'm excited about school, I think I need another Fark party to numb the pain of leaving the beach and heading towards the hot ass porn valley.

I guess sucks is a strong word, but rattle and hum is like the gingerman, a victim of its own success and riding its laurels.

That's my birthday :) Too bad I'm not anywhere near NY...
 
2014-08-07 10:33:07 PM  
Are there really only 3 people going to this thing, or have people still not figured out the RSVP thingy?
 
2014-08-07 11:04:05 PM  
People still have these?

Holy shiate, I remember when you used to host them!  Long time no pee on me.

Long time indeed! I see that LineNoise and JustFarkingGreat are still around as well. I think I will go to the bar part of this, if for no better reason than to catch a glimpse of you three.
 
2014-08-08 12:32:47 PM  
What a stroke of luck! I will be in town around that date: hope to see y'all there!

Dude? your not dead? I may have to show if you do, all be it late, and not at a farking karoke place.

There were only like 4 the last time too. I didn't know it was there until brap pointed it out after having just discovered it himself.

Not dead...yet. And no farking karaoke place for me, either.

I'm flying out of NYC that night.

Just because you farkers are coming.
