Oh, fun!
 
2012-05-04 02:32:45 PM
Thumbs up on the location, y'all
 
2012-05-04 02:35:03 PM
This could happen.
 
2012-05-04 02:35:30 PM
Hey! I might be able to make that!

Oh boy...
 
2012-05-04 03:36:32 PM
Sounds interesting.
 
2012-05-04 03:47:35 PM
Maybe.
 
2012-05-04 06:23:06 PM
Hey, I've been there. I've also seen someone try to steal an ice cream cake from the Baskin Robbins across the street and fail miserably.
 
2012-05-04 07:27:05 PM
Interesting...

....I might be able to go. It'll be my first Fark party. But we'll see. Maybe.
 
2012-05-04 07:34:33 PM
The link to location is not working for me... If there is one. Where is it going to be held?
 
2012-05-04 07:37:48 PM
There are Irish pubs in Lincoln Park? Who would have guessed?

/I'll try and swing by.

What a Chicago channel might look like.

2012-05-04 07:41:14 PM
Absolutely.
 
2012-05-04 07:43:13 PM
hmmm... since no one's bossing me around when I'm not at work or forbidding me from having fun anymore, I just might be able to go.

Are creepy old dudes welcome at these things?

Even if we're liters?

... who hang around the Politics tab?
 
2012-05-04 07:47:04 PM
Holy Fark! I'll be in Chicago that week. Gonna see Roger Waters' "Wall" concert with my bro on the 8th. Not sure if I'll be able to make it to the Fark Party, but we'll see.

/$30? Really?
//In it for the money, are you?
///Farkin' capitalists!
 
2012-05-04 07:50:21 PM

AssAsInAssassin: /$30? Really?


You can pay a la carte if you want, noone's stopping you.
But people usually drink so much in 3 hrs that $30 is a deal.

As long as you aren't Skinnyhead someone might speak to you.
 
2012-05-04 07:57:41 PM
Used to work at the Guitar Center just down the road, so I know it well. I may try to make it, but I don't/ won't drink $30 worth (unlike most Farkers). As long as that's not an only way you're getting in fee, I might be down.
 
2012-05-04 07:58:36 PM

$30 bucks for 3 hours is a freakin' steal. I'd gladly pay twice that.

/Lucky......

I shall abuse the holy hell out of that deal.

How creepy and how old are we talking about, phaselous?

Also, are you skinnyhead?

2012-05-04 10:18:20 PM
I'll be there, can easily walk to the bar. Which means I can easily stumble home from the bar.

If you go, there will be at least two people matching that description. :)

But I might be bringing a friend along (we'll have run the Chicago Half) and she is neither creepy nor old.
 
2012-05-04 10:22:23 PM
I'll believe it when it's on the calender
 
2012-05-04 11:42:24 PM
my attempts to add the event to my facebook calendar are erroring out, which is making me sad.

i live in Chicago, and yet i've been too full of fail to come to a Fark party yet. hoping to change that this time.

Join us! Like what else would you do on a Saturday night?
 
2012-05-04 11:57:15 PM

Friction8r: yankee Chicago


This just in - the Yankees are in New York, dumbass. We have two teams - the Cubs if you like drinking, the Sox if you like winning World Series. Both arguments are valid.
 
2012-05-05 05:07:39 AM
I may be in...

I am sure what you meant to say is, "A Fark Party in one of the most amazing and friendly cities in the US, complete with a wide range of ages, colors, and creeds."

I say this because I've been to a lot of Fark parties, I used to live in Chicago, and I've never been involved in a circle jerk.

Kudos on the location. I spent a LOT of time in the Hidden Shamrock years ago.

Oh one great thing about the location, it's just a few blocks to Wiener's Circle, which means good food after the drinking.

2012-05-07 02:03:50 PM
How far is this from the Hyatt at 151 East Wacker Drive?

I'm thinking of extending my time to attend.
 
2012-05-07 10:05:31 PM

Me too. Maybe I'll see you there. Maybe. Perhaps.
 
2012-05-07 11:30:43 PM
I'll have to see what's going on that weekend...

I_C_Weener: How far is this from the Hyatt at 151 East Wacker Drive?

Couple of miles, $25 or so cab fare. but you could take the red/brown line trains pretty easy.
 
2012-05-09 09:08:18 PM
If they don't move my corporate department move to that weekend from Fathers Day weekend I just might make my 3rd Fark Party.

Yay me!

And $30 for 3 hours of drinking in a decent Chicago bar is a bargain.
 
2012-05-09 09:09:35 PM
Just checking in to vouch for Bukharin. Great guy, great host, I've been in the shiatiast bars in NY and Las Vegas and still had a fooking fantastic time. Bonus he looks like a throwback beatnik from Roger Corman's Bucket of Blood which is too cool for school in my book.


Don't biatch about the venue, show up, and you may have the same experience I've had.
 
2012-05-09 09:18:39 PM
There's an outside chance on this happening...we shall see.
 
2012-05-09 09:24:40 PM
Oh, I'll probably show up. Again. Sorry. :)

Cab it is. I can't handle mass transit.
 
2012-05-09 10:12:06 PM
Well if that douchehat aquigley is going then I won't be attending. It's going to be full of Trixies and Chaz, anyway...

Will there be nudity this time? The last one was disappointing.

You can stand outside in the rain and look in through the window at us laughing, rolling our cigars and twirling our mustaches. We might even raise a sifter of brandy in your general direction.

I'm going to make a tee-shirt with that on it and wear it to the party.

Why hasn't anybody sponsored Friction8r yet?

birdmanesq: I'm going to make a tee-shirt with that on it and wear it to the party.


T-shirts all around! Although I still find the notion of Midwesterners as 'Yankees' a bit odd, but then again, I have a bunch of family from New England, where they take being a 'Yankee' pretty seriously. They even have a magazine (my grandmother subscribed to it). So I've never been comfortable with the notion of a midwesterner as a Yankee.

The Yankees can go fark themselves.

If you you are talking about the baseball team, then I concur completely. If you are talking about little old ladies and their sewing circles from New Hampshire or Maine etc. then, well, they aren't so bad and I'd say give 'em a pass.

Ask someone from another country what a Yankee is, they'll say, "An American."

Ask a Southerner what a Yankee is, they'll say, "A Northerner."

Ask a Northerner what a Yankee is, they'll say, "A New Englander."

Ask a New Englander what a Yankee is, they'll say, "Someone who still uses an outhouse."

Facebook borked the last event. Even though I selected public it was blocked.
I emailed their support desk, but I think theyve been too busy with hookers and blow.

The fail that is facebook's event system shines through.

That one's borked too. I guess it doesn't matter since I'm going to show up anyway.

QifutuWahuta: The fail that is facebook's event system shines through.


OK, there seems to be an issue if you create an event while in a group page, only the group can see it even if it's "public"
You have to go to your own profile a create the event from there.

This one works.
https://www.facebook.com/events/266305500133516/

Oh, and update on the bar, it's $35, not $30.
The waitress was wrong... or the owner jacked the price. I donno which for sure.
 
2012-05-14 01:53:40 AM
Woo, different bar, woooo!
 
2012-05-15 05:27:41 PM

umm...it's the middle of an oncology convention. Hotels are like $400 a night downtown...stay by the airport. I'd put you up at my hotel, but we're at $399.

Ugh

Well, I can stay away from Downtown, and I prefer to use the subway/L over cabs. Any suggestions?

Chinatown. The hotel is small and cramped, but close to the red line and good food.

blueyd1: Can we please have another one sometime this summer, Buk?


We've been doing about 3/year the past couple of years. One winter/spring... one summer... one fall. Usually the fall has the best turnout with semi-nice weather and cheap hotels. Summer is tough because of all the conventions jacking up the prices downtown.

Stay downtown. Any major hotel will be fine (Hilton, etc.) Lincoln Park is easy to get to by cab or bus.

I'll be in Chicago then. Might show up.

How many hookers should I bring?

How many sluts?

Sounds like a good icebreaker...people trying to read the itsy bitsy words on the badge then me smacking them for looking at my chest. Carrot and stick, right?

Bukharin: You can pay a la carte if you want, noone's stopping you.


Actually I did not know this. Having more than a couple drinks is usually problematic for me as I have to drive a long way home.

I stayed at a 3-Star hotel downtown for $60 three weeks ago. I don't know if I can say the hotel name or the website I got if from directly, but here goes. William Shatner told me to book hotels at this website and the hotel was at the corner of Ontario and Rush. The room was $76 out the door.

The Hyatt Regency on Wacker, which really isn't on Wacker, has 2,019 rooms that are never fully used and there are tons of hotels downtown. Someone has rooms available for cheap on the Pricey Line type discount website.

If they have a room available, I HIGHLY recommend Gold Coast Guest House... cheaper than a hotel downtown might run you, fantastic location, free continental breakfast. The lady who runs it is super nice.

If not, I also recently discovered this website http://www.airbnb.com/
... if you're comfortable renting someone's spare room.

Oh hell, according to Google, it will take me an hour and 15 minutes to get there from my house ... if I walked. Which means I'll mostly likely stop by as it is pretty close by.
