Is free food typical?  Maybe luckymonkey owns the place?

Dammit. That's Bonnaroo, otherwise I'd be there.
 
2013-05-29 07:29:12 PM  
it's two and a half hours to des moines for me and a bridge too far
 
2013-05-29 07:33:01 PM  
I will be there if for some reason I am back in Iowa at that time.

Hey, it could happen I gots family there.
 
2013-05-29 07:37:17 PM  
That's a block and a half away from where I work. I'll try to be there assuming I don't have to do server backups that night.
 
2013-05-29 07:56:24 PM  
There's better bars in Des Moines why go to this place

I am shocked to see a party in DSM. I lurk on here way more than post but I always need a burger!
 
2013-05-29 08:15:42 PM  
I'll be in Des Moines that weekend, might have to pop in to tell Drew off over the new site that I never got over.
 
2013-05-29 08:19:03 PM  
That bar is REALLY close to the river. Let's hope we don't have to step over sandbags or nothin'.
 
2013-05-29 08:28:52 PM  
Awesome!  This should be fun - never been to a Fark Party before!  (and 60 kinds of beer? I think my liver just orgasmed)
 
2013-05-29 08:32:20 PM  
I'll have to try to get the night off.  And I'm not sure I'm ready to Fark IRL.  But I do live in Des Moines.....

And meth. Don't forget the meth.

Woo IOWA PARTY!

I'll be there.
 
2013-05-29 08:57:48 PM  
probably get more Iowans to attend if you had the party here in Denver.

I should have known, sardonic blonde is SOOOOOOOO Iowanian.

 Lets.  I'll giggle at all your jokes if you tell me I'm pretty.
 
2013-05-29 09:00:51 PM  
Hmm.  I'll have to take this one into serious consideration.

I'll be there.


The stakes are raised.  I MUST WARN YOU ALL....THIS MAN IS PART TIGER!  MANIMAL IF YOU WILL.
 
2013-05-29 10:06:58 PM  
Interesting, I might have to attend.
 
2013-05-29 10:16:32 PM  
Sounds like fun.. and a bonus will be going to the farmers market and getting breakfast burritos and some Amish baked goodies... and a dutch letter or two. That will help the hangover.
 
2013-05-29 11:15:46 PM  
I'm the only Farker I know IRL. Having tried to explain this place a few people (including my wife) and been met with blank stares, I'm not sure how I'm going to explain going to a bar to meet a bunch of twisted Farkers and their ignominious leader. So be it - see you on the 21st.
 
2013-05-29 11:32:45 PM  
Argh, on vacation that week!
 
2013-05-29 11:37:11 PM  
I'm in. So now I eagerly await the 21st.
 
2013-05-29 11:43:46 PM  
I believe I will attend
 
2013-05-30 12:01:50 AM  
I'd go, but I'm not 21, so really pointless to go to a fark party. Still nice to see one in my backyard, so to speak.
 
2013-05-30 06:47:48 AM  
im going if brap is going.
 
2013-05-30 08:06:35 AM

Same for me here, only I need to convince my wife I need to drive 2 hours to get there for that.
 
2013-05-30 09:42:16 AM  
Wow...I had no idea there were more than about 5 Iowan Farkers.....time to update the list.
 
2013-05-30 10:05:11 AM  
im in the ames area.  never thought there would be an iowa fark party near me, so i think i could probably drag myself down there to go.
 
2013-05-30 10:54:40 AM  
Ames farker here.  Me, Mrs Intern, and Madanimalscientist are there ^_^
 
2013-05-30 12:12:59 PM  
We Ames folks should car pool. Anyone got a van?
 
2013-05-30 08:14:26 PM  
We're not expected to wear

"Hello my name is:    "

tags are we?  That would be counterproductive to lurking...
 
2013-06-01 09:43:17 PM  
I am now officially considering coming to this.
 
2013-06-02 01:17:24 PM  
I haven't been on Fark much the past couple years, but I can certainly show up for this.
 
2013-06-06 12:49:53 PM  
I'm in!

I and my son will be there.

Son is the designated driver.  I'm the designated drinker.
 
2013-06-08 07:38:35 AM  
On one hand, I live there. On the other, I have to be at the gym 26 minutes after this starts, so...toss up.
 
2013-06-08 09:33:27 AM  
Beer and a fark party, i'll be there
 
2013-06-08 07:10:39 PM  
Fong's is my favorite pizzeria in the midwest, might have to make a trip down depending on weather.
 
2013-06-09 10:58:10 PM

I'm not sure I want to show up and find out which of my co-workers are also farkers... just doesn't seem like a good idea.

Yes it is VERY good pizza

2013-06-13 09:40:26 AM  
DUDE I AM SO THERE!

CORN LATTES FOR ALL!

Seriously, I never thought I'd be able to attend a Fark Party. This should be fun.
 
2013-06-13 09:52:38 AM  
Great place to get shiatfaced, I hear.
 
2013-06-13 10:00:15 AM  
Des Moines is from a French mistranslation of the Miami - Illinois indian name  = Moingoana = shiat faced.

 /Works for me
 
2013-06-14 01:12:01 PM  
might be there.

Quick. Somebody invite Chuck Grassley.
 
2013-06-14 01:48:05 PM  
hotels nearby?

Hotel Ft. Des Moines and The Marriott are both within walking/staggering distance.

rostit: people live in iowa?


If you want to call that living. I was there for 5 years one week.
 
2013-06-14 09:10:35 PM  
You all sound like so much fun!  Too bad I'm in NJ and can't get out. Doesn't matter -- wishing all of you a truly memorable time!
 
2013-06-14 09:28:02 PM  
Alas, I will be in the swamps south of NOLA that night.

ffs, of all the nights to choose
 
2013-06-14 09:31:29 PM  
I will have to miss it. My passport expired.
 
2013-06-14 09:38:47 PM  
Sure, don't bother coming to the Omaha party Drew. All 4 of us were very lonely.

Omahawg: it's two and a half hours to des moines for me and a bridge too far


Google Maps says it's 1,293 miles from here and a driving time of 18 hours 40 mins.

I think that estimate is based on factors other than me trying me to there in a hydrogen powered 1964 F150.

Since the Iowa Farkers are coming out of hiding, I'm about half an hour west of Cedar Rapids on hwy 30...boyfriend and I were planning a DSM visit on a weekend anyway; maybe we'll get there.

2013-06-20 04:40:53 PM  
But seriously, there are really two kinds of places in Iowa.

1) The greatest place on planet Earth, otherwise known as Iowa City
2) The rest of farking Iowa

This should be hosted at Mickey's or Dublin Underground

I'm a Minnesota Farker, just returned from house-hunting in Des Moines, but moving to W. Des Moines in August.
Unfortunately, I will miss this one but I will make the next one even if I have to step over the bodies of corn-fed, Cyclone cheerleaders to get there.

Sorry, but my schedule is kinda tight tomorrow.  Best of luck, though!
 
2013-06-20 09:43:43 PM  
Hmmm...I'm on the fence...boyfriend (a non-Farker) might be ditching me to catch up with some buddies of his tomorrow.  I have no reason NOT to go to DM, except that I've never met any Farkers IRL and that intimidates me a teeny bit.  Guess it'll have to be a game day decision.
 
2013-06-20 10:06:59 PM  
Better response than I was expecting ... might have to try and stop in.  Bit of a drive from Ames for a brief visit, but how often will this happen ...
 
2013-06-20 11:22:12 PM  
Damn, a Des Tucky Fark party?  I'll bet anything that the Des Moines CoC starts bragging about this next year when they try and attract the NCAA tournament and fail...again.

I lived in Des Tucky for a couple of years, and it was the most insecure town I have ever been in in my life.  They so desperately want people to think they're a real city.

in college it always confused me how much the kids from des moines considered themselves sophisticated urbanites when compared to all us hicks from the sticks, even rural rustics like me closer to downtown omaha then the people in west o are. and then it always turned out they either a-went to dowling or b-were from ankeny. that's some serious hardcore, dawg
