Nobody knows me from Adam, but I might consider going to this. I live in Exton and Victory's about a five-minute drive, if that.

Let me tell you, the Victory Brewpub is a capital destination. Among my circle of drinking buddies, it is the thirtysomething's birthday party venue of choice. Best beer around (provided you like hops) and great food (especially after sinking 2-3 of their 8-10% plus beers).

Please tell me you're gonna reserve the mighty roundtable set in the old brewing tank. It would only seat 12 or so, not sure how big local Fark parties get, but the acoustics in there are fun.

McFifenstein: ami5000: You guys really are a bunch of whiners, but what else should we expect from Philly people. Philly people complain that it's not in the city. Non-Philly people would complain if it was in the city

But everyone can complain that I'll be there.


I'm already complaining.

some have been reported to have up to seven people.

I kinda wish I could go.

Stupid twelve hour drive....

I'm going to set your girlfriend on fire again.

ami5000: So either come to the party at Victory or don't. Either way it won't matter because we'll have a good time with or without your asses.


Oh boy we will be besties if I can make it to this! I am so excited for this! I will bring peeper spray for protection from Mr. Fifers!

meow said the dog: Mr. Murder: Count me in. Can I bring a date?

Wait are you inviting me to stay at the home of you? Because if I make it to this party I will need to have the place to stay because this would be the dangerous return drive of me.


I would be getting the hotel, as for I am not driving back to the NEPA with you at that late of an hour at night whilst intoxicated.
 
2012-08-08 08:17:37 PM
I am a maybe. Tempting to be sure

Mr. Fifers has taught me to make the shiv. I am the maybe guys. I must look at hotels in the area.

Looks like this could be a good turnout, maybe a couple big tables would be in order.

NO. My cane has a Fife Extinguisher hidden in it.

YES!

*Looks at calendar, notices the 8th falls on a Saturday*

NOOOOOO.jpg

I have to work on Saturdays, and I have no more days off until December.

Gallows humor on my part. At least the Eagles will lift my sunken spirits by winning the.... ahhhhh fark

Jesus - this isn't philly, subby. It's like if I said let's have a DC Fark party at my local brewpub, and I live in Ashland, VA.

/local brewpub is probably Denny's.
 
2012-08-08 09:10:10 PM

Half Right: I have to agree with the other whiny coonts--it's not a Philly Fark Party at all. And I agree with Brap that the closer to CC the easier it is for out-of-towners.

Nevertheless, I'll still make an attempt to get to the Pennsylvania Fark Party. September is far away though.


Yessss.... I will definitely be there, then.
 
2012-08-08 09:20:48 PM
I have been to a few Philly Fark parties but that was a lifetime ago. Fun times!

I look forward to going to another. Please count me in.

OKAY FINE LETS JUST CANCEL THE GODDAMN THING TILL WE CAN RENT THE F*CKING LIBERTY TOWER
 
2012-08-08 09:39:53 PM
Getting a cab from the brewpub to a hotel in Exton shouldn't be a problem that night, right?
 
2012-08-08 09:42:23 PM
Wow this is looking like an awesomely major Fark party based on the response so far. I'll need start an exercise regimen to get my liver back into collegiate shape.

Some people owe me some favors.
 
2012-08-08 09:56:47 PM
Hell I might even think about coming up to it

Do it. I'll probably go.

Think my brother might be doing his bday that night, gotta check on that first otherwise I'm totes inzies

That's what we're planning on doing, cabbing it from and back to Exton. It looks like a 10 minute cab ride or so, very doable.

Just a note, from looking at the local tripadvisor reviews: some of the hotels there might fill up during events at the local racetrack and Exton is close enough to count, and of course there's an event there that weekend. If you might be going, think about making a reservation now that you can always cancel beforehand if needed. Just a thought. Or else you'll have to bunk with Fife.

Prison favors?

I convinced you, didn't I?

don't ask questions.
 
2012-08-08 10:52:22 PM
I'll think about it. I may be free.
 
2012-08-08 11:12:24 PM
Not sure if my acceptance made it through....I'll be there!
 
2012-08-08 11:33:15 PM
Nah, I'll wait for a Philly Fark party.

/met Drew at the last one..
//yes, he does exist..
///my bicycle frame broke clean through today, so you don't have to fear walking on the sidewalks in Philly for now...
 
2012-08-09 12:08:47 AM
I'm in. The NJ Fark Party was much fun and I'm so looking forward to another.

gamergirl23: I'll think about it. I may be free.


You better come. I'm not chatting with Fife all night.

So if Gap and Parkesburg are borderline Pennsyltucky...

What is Coatesville? (Do I want to know?)

Lived most my life just a few miles from Victory Brewery... turned 21 after I moved away :(



I also think we should bring back some of the old town names. PA had/has some of the best. Turk's Head would be SW of King of Prussia and if you keep going through Midway you should reach Paradise

It's about an hour from me, but I'll have room if any York area farkers want to meet up and carpool.

That's right, I'm offering to be DD.
 
2012-08-09 10:06:14 AM
Based on a rough headcount for the thread, I'm getting 35-40 people who are coming. That's an awesome turnout. I should be posting an update thread later today once I get all the details with Victory finalized.
 
2012-08-09 10:20:49 AM
I read Fark every day but have only posted a handful of times....that makes me a lurker, doesn't it? Crud.

In any case, I will try to make it out for this! If there's anyone around the Manayunk area desperate for a ride, let me know. I gots wheels.
 
2012-08-09 12:21:20 PM
I used to live in d-town, walking distance to victory. That was dangerous.

I live in Devon now, so it's a little far, but do-able. I still have many friends that live there. I don't drink anymore, so it's not as much of a draw for me.

/they do have great food though
 
2012-08-09 12:29:27 PM
Damn, next time I try to have a Fark Party up here in the Lehigh Valley, I'll have to list it as a Philly party. This is a heck of a turnout. Granted, Allentown is 60 miles north of Philly and Downingtown is only 40 miles west, but still....

I'm probably moving that week, so I'll see if I can make it. I'll be closer thankfully, but its going to be a busy week.
 
2012-08-09 12:49:02 PM
Well, let's see if I can actually show up for this one, unlike the last one I chickenshiatted out of.

Besides, a friend keeps telling me how fun the Victory Brewpub is. I suspect I'll be visiting it before Sept 8th.

Lastly, I'm hauling my ass in from Center City, so you'll hear me coming as I curse the traffic on 76...
 
2012-08-09 02:44:33 PM
I'm excited so many people are coming to this thing!
 
2012-08-09 03:38:00 PM
The location of Victory is very odd at first visit. You will be driving into an area of town that is just warehouses and etc.... you will feel like you are lost all the way until you finally see the place. Than you'll be like wait... this is it eyebrows wrinkled. You walk in and you are like transformed into a German Octoberfest beer hall and you get a big grin on your face.

/the end
//book the octoberfest hall with the projection screens mr organizer guy.

Booked it. Done!

E-Brake: ...If you might be going, think about making a reservation now that you can always cancel beforehand if needed. Just a thought. Or else you'll have to bunk with Fife.


Well most of the cheap rooms are non-refundable, but hey, how often does one have a chance to get drunk with random strangers from the intertubes, right? It's not like there's ever anything to worry abo...

kxs401: I convinced you, didn't I?
/okay, I'll stop being creepy now


...Dammit! Well, thankfully you're a funny enough poster that your creepiness levels get automatically reduced. :P

/If we reach a critical mass, does Drew have to show up? Sorta like Jesus being there whenever two people get together in His name, y'know.

If you join a hotel's reward program thingamabob the rates are usually cheaper, too. And Drew's aware, he's not sure he can make this one but it's on the radar.
