Fark Party
Host: Mr. Fuzzypaws
Description: Farks In The Wild at the Buffalo Zoo. July 24, 6pm, SOLD OUT, After Zoo at Nietzsche's, ~10pm. The Final Countdown
Date/Time: July 24, 2013 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Yes, I know, it's a Wednesday. Deal.

A couple of my favorite things are watching exotic animals and getting drunk. So come join me at the Buffalo Zoo's annual Wines In The Wild and we can do both together.

It basically goes like this: They hand you a wine glass at the door, you get a beer mug at a vendor and you double fist it for 3 hours. Food is also included in admission.

It's $45 for the general admission. General Admission is SOLD OUT $100 for VIP. VIP IS SOLD OUT.

There is still the after Zoo Party!

The after zoo party will be at Nietzsche's. They have live music every night. My guess is with all the traffic around the zoo we should be able to all make it there by 10. Well before if you leave the zoo earlier, some are only going to Nietzsche's.

Still working on who's playing and what cover there might be. 5 bucks would be my guess. Type of music is up for grabs.

oldfarthenry: Buffalo has a zoo? How do they prevent the animals from panicking with all those burning buildings/fire around them?


The zoo is not in the ghetto. Unlike the Philly zoo.

Don't know I can make it or not but funny thing is that Mr Fuzzypaws looks like a friend of a friend who lives in the buffalo area. It'd be a hoot if you actually were that guy. (and weird)
 
2013-05-03 03:23:35 PM  
I heard retards like the zoo.

There actually is a buffalo at the Buffalo Zoo.  But it's pretty sad.

That's not a buffalo. And there are no buffalo at the Buffalo zoo.

Matter of fact buffalo aren't even from North America. They're from Africa.

/by they way, that bison is just shedding

Have fun, everyone!

By the way, "Farks in the wild" is a wonderful hobby

I take it you have never been there on free admission day.

Of course I have. It was a pleasant experience and I requested to work that day again this year.

/shutters

You'd have to be really drunk to like a zoo. I mean, all those poor animals tracking back and forth going crazy.
Just like us.
 
2013-06-04 05:54:07 PM  
Parking will mainly be along the pink roads and parking lot. Get there early. People start lining up at the 6 o'clock door at 4pm. There's 2500 people wanting to get through that door and get their drink on.

The general admission goes through Gate 9. VIPs go through the main entrance which is right off the parking lot. (Or will be as of July 1st)

The people that want a tour previous to the event meet me at Gate 1. I only have 2 booked so I can get another three on this tour. Tour can be three hours because that's as long as we're allowed to be there. So from 3pm to whenever your gate opens you're on your own. I'm gonna "tail gate" on other peoples' parties. :P

Is there any after-zoo drinking planned?  I doubt that I'm going to be able to make the zoo thing, but that ends at 9, right?

It does end at 9pm. After zoo drinking is planned. Don't know where yet. I'm pushing for somewhere near Hertel and Colvin. Other's want to go downtown. We still have a month and a half to figure all that out.

Just a suggestion--the Bisons play at home on July 24th, so there will probably be a nice crowd at Pearl Street Grill.  And the Cobblestone District will probably be fairly busy that night, too.

I just saw the words "Buffalo Zoo" in green type and assumed the worst. Now that I know its not, I may join up. I always forget Im not the only Buffalo based TFer around.

I wish I was a Buffalo based TF'er. A city with culture, what a change from Florida!

I'll be there with bells on (unless that will bother the animals).

you say this as if it is a good thing.

i think we can rule out chippewa...  so that leaves us with hertel, elmwood, and allen.  it might be fun to see a band.

I think VIP is sold out.

Let's see.  I need to run thru my check lists here...

I love zoo's.
I love alcohol.
It's a wednesday but I could take a few days off and extend the weekend for an extended stay of the city.
It's 5 hours away (driveable).
Sure,  I'll be there.

Question.  Does anyone know how they ship their tickets.  USPS or UPS?
 
2013-06-04 10:14:41 PM  
Is it really a good idea to have a Fark party at a zoo?
When it's over, I fear they might not let everybody leave.
 
2013-06-04 11:10:27 PM  

Deep Contact: It would be funnier if we could get the gorillas drunk.


I went to this event years ago, and we got buzzed and wandered into the monkey house/gorilla exhibit after dark. No lights. Creeeeeepy.

Nice to finally see the hyenas awake though!
 
2013-06-04 11:53:23 PM  
Allrighty I just ordered my tickets. This will be my first Fark related party. I missed the get togethers at the Pearl Street Grill in the past, I'm not sure I can get hammered enough in 3 hours. At least not to Fark Party Standards.

Is it all you can drink or cash bars set up after the first couple?
 
2013-06-05 03:51:36 PM  

threefeetoffun: Is it all you can drink or cash bars set up after the first couple?


It's all you can eat and drink "sample size". Some vendors fill you up, some just give you a quarter/half glass. But you're free to stand in line again. :) Last year there were about 60 vendors and 2/3rds of them were alcohol based (beer and wine). The rest were food and there was one local video game store that had an F1 game set up in LAN mode on Xbox for people to drunk drive against.

Then there's always the duck races. :P Big money wagers on plastic ducks goes on there.
 
2013-06-05 04:13:47 PM

That's an idea. Nietzsche's has live music every night.

Bonus: It's only a mile from my house so I can stumble home if I miss the bus.
 
2013-06-06 03:32:57 PM  
Because we all don't know each other and some of us are entering at different gates let's all "try" to meet at the gazebo by 6:45pm.

I'll still man Gate 9 to 6:30ish but I'll move over to the Gazebo about then.

Again, I'll be wearing a Total*Fark tshirt and a blue and black back pack.

Currently trying to find out who's playing at Nietzsche's that night and what the cover will be. Once that's all set I'll update the post.

Stay tuned.
 
2013-06-17 03:39:00 PM  
I STILL HAVE ROOM FOR 3 ON THE EARLY TOUR! IT'S FREE! EMAIL ME.

Not really, I won't be wearing trousers.

Holy crap, a Buffalo Fark Party??! Of course it's during the one week I'm out of town.

For anybody wondering, Ill be at  Nietzsche's for this. That is a warning for folks like  Mambo Bananapatch and AllyOop.

Got my ticket the other day.  Was going to drive but I just found a bus that runs to buffalo.  $20 total for my trip up there and back while someone else drives and I sleep.  Can't pass that deal up.

Hey, I got no problem going to another party. As long as it's not an afterparty BECAUSE THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS AN 'AFTERPARTY' and that word just makes me want to eat my own head.

Were you at the Maddison? I was!

Otherwise you have some suspense til Buffalo to meet me.

And yes, I'm cool. Totally cool.

I missed the Madison and will have to miss Buffalo too...I guess the suspense will have to last until the next Toronto party.

Odd, I don't remember reposting this.

Must be because it's the month countdown today.
