Fark Party
Host: Mr. Fuzzypaws
Description: 5th Annual Farks In The Wild at the Buffalo Zoo. July 19, 6pm. LAST CALL
Date/Time: July 19, 2017 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: The party that won't die. In three parts, like always.

Part Uno: A daytime tour of the zoo for a limited number of Farkers. Right now I can get 9 people in for a tour starting at 12 noon and ending at 3pm. I TRY to set up something special for these but it is way early and I don't have a schedule for the summer. Either way admission to the zoo and parking is on me. First come first serve, EIP for this.

The Main Event: Wines In The Wild. A 3 or 4 hour tasting spectacular, depending on if you go VIP or not. VIP is $100, General Admission Early Bird tickets are $45, most likely until July 1st. I would recommend VIP for sure, only 100 VIP tickets are sold and they go quick. An hour might not seem like much but you get the fatty wine glass plus VIP SWAG from the vendors.

The Winddown: The Survivors will hit a bar after Wines, about 9:30pm, and end the day. Most likely this will be at Geckos on Hertel Ave, just about a mile from the zoo.

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co​m/e/wines-in-the-wild-201​7-tickets-3325890427​8
 
Meet at: Buffalo Zoo
300 Parkside Ave, Buffalo, NY 14214, USA

Link for tickets. 10am Monday May 1st.

Tickets are going on sale a month later than usual so I really expect them to sell out quicker than normal, everyone was used to getting them in April.

Buy early!

Sounds great, but unfortunately I'll be in Vegas for the USAPL nationals. I could have saved a lot of money by going to the Zoo instead, but that's how it goes.

Enjoy!

I've set an alarm so I can remember to buy my ticket in the Morning.

I wonder if we should have a Fark party on Friday. Wines in the wild is always on a Wednesday.

There's always BuffaLove Fest on May 26th, which is the Friday before Memorial Day. I started the Wines one just because I was going to be there anyway so 'why not?'

For those reading and don't know about BuffaLove linky. 25 bucks to get in, you get 2 drinks, but you have to buy drink tickets for more, and the food ain't free. Pretty much 5 bucks a beer. You can get to the $45 that is costs for Wines real quick.

The Catillion is on a Friday, too, June 9. But that's black tie, $1000 a table of 10 and probably already sold out for the next dozen years.

I might make the trip down from Toronto... I'm not sure just yet.

Anyone recommend a good hotel and supermarket for me to stock up on Kerrygold butter?

I don't know of any hotels that sell butter. I stay at the Fels Three Crown motel in Clarence (about 10 miles from the zoo, but it is clean and inexpensive and the family that owns it is very nice).

Wegmans will have KerryGold I'm sure.

Nice! I live just on the other side of the Hollow to the east. Too bad the timing's off this year.

Well I waited 2 minutes and you didn't reply so I got you a ticket. We'll sort it out when I get there.

I didn't want it to sell out before Thursday.

This year 125 VIP tickets are being sold and about half are gone.

Plenty of general admission left.

this time lets have a general logistical blue print or working understanding of who will have pool cues, stools, chairs, darts, once the first punch is thrown. make your first hit fast and as hard as possible.
 
2017-05-22 08:06:45 PM  
we have plenty of time to go over it while queueing.

Email me! Eip, I think!  My handle with a total Fark dot com
 
2017-06-19 05:58:18 PM  
Less than a dozen VIP tickets left. A whole crap ton of general admission available.

Reminder! If you're planning on coming in for the early tour LET ME KNOW via email. I know the regulars will be there, but anyone new needs to let me know so I can wait in case you're late, which you will be. And I need to give you the password for the parking lot so you don't have to pay.

All they have are buffalo... pretty weak-ass zoo
 
2017-07-05 01:51:29 PM  
VIP is sold out now.

Tons of general available.
 
2017-07-05 02:01:17 PM  
General admission price change?
What time does the post-zoo --  pre-winddown party start?
And are there tickets needed for the winddown? Must one be a Survivor to attend, or can one do so unsullied?

Got my airbnb worked out, there are a couple of cheap places within walking distance of the Zoo, including a whole house.

Will bring the voltran gel for buffalo farkers and before I leave pick up some kerrygold butter (damn you Canadian dairy laws).

sorry for the cryptic comments.
Just wanted to know details about which stages of the whole day require tickets or not and time estimates (like, after the zoo outing, what exactly is next and when).
P.S. I have not looked at the thread since I put those bad questions up so perhaps they have been answered.

- General admission price for Wines in the Wild might change at the door. They didn't sell out so I do not know.

- The pre-party tour is free and always will be free, including parking. I have 2 spots left if you're interested. We're going to feed a rhino this year. Email In Profile! I need to know you're coming.

- After party is what you can handle/afford.

You can do one, all or any combination of them. I do not care. Only one that DOES cost money is Wines in the Wild.
 
2017-07-17 06:46:33 PM  
Ticket sales end tomorrow!

They will probably sell some at the door but I don't know if they'll be the $45 they are now.
