One for certain and I might bring 2 more with me.
 
2012-09-12 07:57:55 PM  
Where's Omaha?
 
2012-09-12 08:15:17 PM  
Woo! I'll be there if I can get a ride from Lincoln.

It's the beach between Utah and Gold

We can pick you up. I'll be in town on the 19th.
 
2012-09-12 08:42:38 PM  
Hmmm, that's what, 12 hours out? Maaaaybe

Mike: Hmmm, that's what, 12 hours out? Maaaaybe


I think it's 12 hours from everywhere.
 
2012-09-12 08:53:00 PM  
Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity. 12 hours from everywhere.
 
2012-09-12 08:57:31 PM  
I may actually have a ride now, TEM, but thanks.

Also, if anyone is looking for a hotel, there is a Holiday Inn Express on 177th and Wright. It's only half a mile away.

Given what happened last time I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express...no.

The beer is good and they have a really good food as well at this place. It isn't the cheapest place in town though.

Just spent a couple of weeks in La Vista...would have been nice to have a diversion like this.

I mean, it'll obviously NOT be anything like a MN Fark Party, but I guess you hafta party with what you've got!

DO EEEET!!

Omaha's pretty decent - lots of good places to eat and drink! But as a first timer you're obligated to visit the zoo and Ak-Sar-Ben...apparently those are the rules...

Could happen - elder son lives there...even brought a souvenir box of Huskers candy by Russel Stover back home. Not sure if I should eat it, or frame it! Y'all are worse than Packer fans...

Maybe we can get Drew to come? I mean, Omaha can't be anymore boring than Kentucky.

Population/area? Yep.

Fanaticism/devotion? Not so much...

The understanding is Mutual. But it's a wild kingdom - now here's Jim on Safari in Africa.

Jim?

I'm there.
 
2012-09-12 11:06:52 PM  
'bout time! Count me in!
 
2012-09-12 11:09:28 PM  
Oh man - I now hope to be there...that's the same weekend as T.H.O.R. (^)'s high altitude launch BOB weekend in Pickrell. Their FAA clearance for the weekend is 22,000 MSL (~20,680 AGL). Should be EPIC!

But I just know work is going to interfere with this somehow...

fark west o. everything is too weird west of 72nd street with its lame chain lookalike suburban mentality and Big Red Cornshucker religion.

Don't be chicken. We'll give you a day pass to go out to the cookie cutters. We'll even cover the sidewalks with chalk outlines so you feel more at home.

We can hate the corn hucksters together.

It really comes down to room and parking. There's plenty of bar hopping to be had in that area of Center street if the Upstream doesn't work out.

close, anyway. I just prefer downtown, South O, or North O. good folks, better food, no BS. My time working in the Garden Cafe out in Millard back in the mid-90s pretty well soured me on the place and the people. I've received the kindly help of strangers on South 13th but only unkind stares out in Linoma-land where they grow Heritage Homes on once fertile fields.

The fark party & I have to work the UNO Hockey game that night.

No one ever goes downtown, that's why the Old Market is always so empty (facepalm).

Be careful where you stay in Omaha, there is apparently a bed bug infestation there. The things you learn when your friend's brother is an Orkin man!
 
2012-09-13 12:06:18 AM  
I have never been able to make it to a Fark party. Maybe I'll be able to make it to this one.
 
2012-09-13 12:08:54 AM  
Awesome. Always wondered if there'd ever be a fark party I could make it to.

...and this one at one of my favorite places, no less.

I'm so there. Possibly +1 person

that's not downtown. that's a tourist trap and pretty well sanitized, scrubbed, and lame now with Dave dead and Tom off to brownville and drastic's a t-shirt shop and gizmo's closed and so on. downtown is 16th and Douglas and didn't used to be so dead. around the fringes they ran all the folks out for looking funny and replaced them with parking lots, desolate and empty except the occasional call girl in the back lot of the Travelodge. I can watch the Indian Runner if I want to see the venerable Delmar but as for the Irwin across from the Greyhound terminal all's I have is my memories. They shut down the Diamond, the Stockmen's Lounge on South 24th is no more, I can't get carp at Rudy's or peak into the basement to watch them carve fish, the Muse is no more, and so on.

I just miss old omaha from when I was a kid and didn't realize it was all going away before it was too late.

I love that guy. I'll see if I can bring my friend that was in the Panthers back in the day. He always called West O "Never, Never Land" as in "they will never, never let my black ass live out here".

really? i've interacted with him for over 20 years but only ever got annoyed at him when he'd try to hit on me.

so we talking peter citron bad? or like that guy who owned the french cafe bad? or bad like this ? or what? I never heard him brought up in reference to the franklin cover-up now i'm small-town nosey...
 
2012-09-13 12:48:28 AM  
Yeah, Peter Citron bad. Never minded he was gay, but wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him. No proof mind you, just intense gut feeling. And for what it's worth, which is very little, I did hear his name bandied about during the FCU thing. Was in high school at the time, and hung around downtown a lot.

/Probably just me
//but maybe not

interesting. he would have had the perfect set-up for that too to draw in young, alienated, artsy youth with low self-esteem. I tried to find some crazy man's youtube tour of infamous sites downtown linked to the whole Larry King thing but I couldn't seem to find it.

Well that's what the Antiquarium was, wasn't it? I might just be a horribly suspicious person, but I spent a fair amount of time there. Didn't trust the whole situation. I'd love to see that video. If only to compare it against my memories. Omaha was a weird place in the eighties.

If I can remember (and I suck at remembering shiat) I'll bring nametags because I'm probably not going to recognize most of you motherfarkers. Except The English Major, because he'll probably be the only brown guy there.

My time working in the Garden Cafe out in Millard back in the mid-90s pretty well soured me on the place and the people. I've received the kindly help of strangers on South 13th but only unkind stares out in Linoma-land where they grow Heritage Homes on once fertile fields.

You're the only one biatching about it, bro. Hope you realize that.

When I look at a map of Omaha, the West might as well be uncharted waters with the words "Thar be monsters here," but I might just have to set sail for this... even though I'm only a block away from the downtown location where I could just roll myself down the hill and into bed. Any hope for a compromise, like somewhere midtown? I work at Beertopia and might be able to arrange a private party at Max & Joe's if there's nothing else already happening there at the time.

Anyway... long time lurker, but I just signed up so I could comment here. Looking forward to meeting some fellow farktards.

I was just gonna say...I'm in KC too. Guess I better take what I can get, cause I seriously doubt anyone here is ever going to host a party. I know there are a couple of KC Farkers who go out to dinner every so often. But that doesn't count.

Anyway! How late can one buy booze in NE? Are there ghey bars in this "west omaha" place? Does anyone else from KC want to carpool?

Omaha's pretty decent - lots of good places to eat and drink! But as a first timer you're obligated to visit the zoo and Ak-Sar-Ben...apparently those are the rules...


And Huber-Haus ... at least I always end up there when I'm in town. Making a trip next week ... bet it will happen again.

Party threads get automatically bumped by a bot at specific intervals before the party (12 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks etc).  It's random chance that two parties are next weekend and two more the weekend after.  Simmah dn na.  :)

Beerinator: Oddly enough, the Upstream is 12 minutes away from my house. Lucky number 12. See you there.


Now that I've actually read the headline and thread, this isn't the Upstream we had the "party" at... we were down in the Old Market, which really ain't so bad as that other fellow says. On the other hand... it is still Omaha.

/closer to my house though, so that's good.

Rudy Sfarzo (?) used to be Joe's carp cook but they got into an argument one night so Rudy walked and opened up his own place. Since my grandpa was one of Rudy's drinking bud's that where we always went went when I was growing up.

No one is scared to go downtown. The West O one is simply bigger and has fewer parking issues than downtown.

Urban sprawl is not an issue that originated in Omaha.

Living out in West Omaha, I don't find that I need to go downtown very often. While I like what they're doing, I don't want to deal with paying $8 to park so I can walk around in the Old Market (which isn't that exciting to begin with) or spend 40 minutes circling around looking for a spot for free.

Anyway, I don't think anyone would have not gone had it been downtown.

Yup, that's a big reason why the West O location was chosen. Parking is a biatch downtown and people are more likely to come if they don't have to pay for parking.

I have a drinking problem. If I exceed 2, I rarely stop until I'm dry humping every bar stool in the place.


That's cool. Even if 30 people have only two drinks that's $300. I'm not worried.

We've had our company xmas party (or holiday party for those so inclined) at the Upstream (one downtown, one out west) and it's not half bad. Of course, that's buffett-style not made to order....still... not too bad.

Last time I checked, WEST of Crossroads would be West Roads, Oakview, or Village Point.

Villiage Point is probably a 'better' shopping area but I hate the layout. I work right at Oakview so I tend to go there if I'm inclined to mall shop.

Villiage Point is probably a 'better' shopping area but I hate the layout. I work right at Oakview so I tend to go there if I'm inclined to mall shop.


slow down, tex, it was just a joke. the center was omaha's first mall and will always have a special place in my heart for its bowling alley that I never bowled at but found mysterious in its mid-1980s almost abandoned incarnation.

Ha. Ha. I never experienced it. When I moved here, Crossroads was "the" mall to go to. Everything happened at 72nd and Dodge. And that wasn't all that long ago... at least that's how it seemed to me.

Show_The_O_Face: andyofne: DownIncognito: What is the recommended method for figuring out where the farkers are, or will that be obvious?
(just in case I don't see the person with the panda hat)

I think, if you look at the top of the page... it says something about " the Lounge room we have available for our party needs."

I'm trying to find out if anyone is planning on bringing nametags. But just head upstairs and find the lounge room. There'll be people that MUST be farkers up there.


If you like, I can swing by work and pick up a stack...

Show_The_O_Face: The English Major: We went into the Crossroads B&N tonight. Is that still technically a "mall?"

And you didn't get shot at?

There's a reason that area is classified as 'blighted'


Now, now. It's what, half a mile from Fair Acres. That's the kind of blight to which I aspire.
 
2012-10-20 01:08:50 AM  
Yeah, crossroads has pretty well died as far as a business goes. I usually go to westroads or oakview whenever I need to go to a mall. Which isn't often ... though if I need to replace a tire, I'll usually go to sears over at oakview just so I can roam around the mall or go to the food court to waste time while its being done.

What about Southroads? :)

Now, that place was already 'declined' when I moved to Bellevue in 1995. Does it even still function as a mall?

I barely remember southroads from when I was younger. I'm fairly certain they've completely closed down now. I'm a bit of a young pup, was only 10 back in '95.

Crossroads was taken over by some broad who didn't put any money into it and doubled the lease rates in one month. Held onto it until no one wanted to go there, now no one wants to put in the money to renovate it again. City wanted to intervene, but they can't get enough support to pull it out of the hole it's in now. It's in danger of becoming Omaha's Southroads.

Having lived 3 blocks from it most of my life, it kills me to see the place a barren wasteland now. Almost as bad as seeing Peony Park torn down.

Oakview is going to a similar path. It's not bad yet. Were they both owned by the same company?

Long time "good" stores have left Oakview due to lease increases and when they leave the spots stay empty for a long time only to be filled with goofy shiat that no one seems to want to go into.

Not that I have any love for Radioshack but how can they run RS out of the mall and then put in a "Brow Beauty" place that plucks eye lashes? Anyway, there are a lot of empty stores on the surrounding perimeter, too.

Was definitely a sad day when Peony Park was torn down. I had a ton of fond memories there from when I was a kid. Though I do have a college friend living at the apartments there now. Crossroads could be brought back with the right management. UNO is just down the street and everyone knows college aged women love to rack up credit card debt.

Filthy lurker who will probably show up to throw back a couple. Wonder if they still have the BBQ chicken pizza there... Been a while since I've been down there.

CraicBaby: Come on down! Just tell them you're with Fark.


I told them I was "just going upstairs to meet some people". They asked "Are you meeting people for a party? We have 'Fark', we have..."

I said "Yep, that's it!"

"Okay, they at the top of the stairs, to the left."

I went up to the stairs and "to the left" was the bar. I walked all the way around to get to it, didn't see anything that looked like a Fark party. I'm glad I wandered back behind the bar and found everyone before I asked the two couples at the nearby tables if they were part of the Fark party. Would've been awkward.
 
2012-10-21 01:06:29 AM  
A good party; totally worth the drive. Although I'll never understand the concept of a bar that closes at 11PM. Lots of great people.
 
2012-10-21 01:12:17 AM  
I enjoyed the experience. Plus we meet our room minimum in the first hour.

I don't think I would recommend that exact location again but it was a good turnout and I had a blast.
