Fark Party

Facebook event (if you're into that kind of thing: http://www.facebook.com/events/193335987512793/

What better way to spend the weekend before Thanksgiving than by drinking with random strangers from the internet? Hooray!

How much snow is forecast for Nov 23rd in St Paul ?

Canuckian Thanksgiving is Oct.14th this year (as if anyone gives a sh*t).

I might be there, contingent upon weather and whether or not my boyfriend is all Fark partied out from the Columbus party the weekend before.
 
2013-09-19 04:26:58 PM
That is two days after my birthday. I dont see any reason while I should not go.
 
2013-09-19 04:28:47 PM
I am going to see if I can make it but I highly doubt it.

Oh don't worry, Farkers are paranoid about so many other things I doubt they'll even notice.

So I get a notification for a San Francisco Fark Party, 1900 miles away, but Fark doesn't send one for the one just down the street.

I have been in and out of MN nearly 6 times and tried to meet farkers there....and the one time there is a party....Its one wk after I moving to NYC for 1.5 months. dammit. Any farkers want to meet up next wk on Tues or Wed?

My upcoming weeks are not looking particularly free. Probably not until mid-October. Mayhaps we can do an informal thing around then!

I'm completely down for Freddy's. Been meaning to stop in there for a long time to check it out but needed an excuse seeing as I don't drink.
 
2013-09-19 06:19:56 PM
I will make it out, likely won't drink though due to the popo being everywhere that time of year and pulling you over for rolling the window down to fart though.

So many places in St Paul, why farking Rice Street?  Downtown or West 7th maybe.  If you want me to cross Annapolis, find a better joint.  Amsterdam, Sweeneys, etc.

So don't come.
This is a newer bar and it's on the part of Rice that isn't in the terrifying Frogtown area. So chill and be merry or be uptight and don't show.


NO PICKLES FOR YOU!

You go have a party over there, we'll party over here in my neighborhood. With parking.
 
2013-09-19 10:14:10 PM
M.URH and I stopped in there a couple of years ago - don't recall it having a Tiki motif, though. Has it changed hands?

Drinks were decent, as was the food. It's nowhere near as big as Psycho Suzies, though. If more than 15~20 Farkers show up it could get crowded.

Completely new management and name. Last place had.... issues... paying their tab. :)

They've redone the whole place.

I was wondering when Whine About The Location Guy would show up in here. I don't think it's possible to have a Fark party thread without someone biatching about either the part of town or the venue.

And I've stopped caring about those folks. They can either show up or not. Not catering to their crap anymore. :)

An argument for Freddy's:

-Practically right off of 36, near where 35 intersects and 280 merges, so anyone coming from either St Paul or Minneapolis can get there quite easily.
-There is the new 36 & Rice Park & Ride right off the offramp, so carpooling and/or parking won't be an issue.
-My last few experiences at Suzi's have not been good; random extra guests added to the tab, bad service to the point a date I had couldn't get a drink let alone any food the whole night even though we had multiples of servers say they'd "get right on that", so I'm ready to move somewhere else.

However, not my party to put on. Just some food for thought and a quick argument for. :)

*nod* They popped up when I was helping organize the Omaha parties. We basically told them "Either show up or don't. We don't give a shiat."
 
2013-09-20 06:42:49 AM
Also, if we're feeling Freddy's is going to be too small, what used to be Dean's Tavern is now called McCarron's and it's just a bit further north on Rice street.
 
2013-09-20 07:50:32 AM
If they've redecorated/redesigned the place it might not be an issue.

IIRC there was only a handful of tables, the bar, and the patio / smoking area.

I might check it out before the party to see if it can accommodate us. If it looks too small for a group of our magnitude we can always shift to McCarron's.

I totally understand where you're coming from. The location is never going to sit well with everyone but I wanted to try something up in this general vicinity. I'm coming from Minneapolis so it's a hike for me no matter what. I hope you'll give it a chance, the more the merrier. If not, no worries, we can do something on 7th Street next time!

Well, I for one (and only) really would like to have one at Neumann's bar, but that's North Saint Paul.. Still on Hwy. 36 but down between Century Ave, and McKinght. Might be too small also, but they have a nice patio......
Never mind I would like to check out the bar you picked, so let's do this.
See ya then

I didn't blow it off. I got laid off and was too broke to even think about going to a Fark party.

I'm from Denver, there's no such thing as a "hike" in MSP, you guys have things like "highways." I'm in Coon Rapids, the drive will be less than 30 minutes no matter where it is. Count me in.

We may need a bigger boat (venue). McCarron's that's just up the street on Rice is larger than the Tiki Hut.

Is there a store other than in Austin where you can get that stuff or do you just go online?

I just got it at the Spam museum when I was in town for a wedding. They have a sampler pack. Not sure if this works on mobile, if not check out the spam museum website and find the place to buy stuff. http://store.spam.com/mobile/SPAM-BRAND-VARIETY-12-PACK/productinfo/G6 364/#.Ul6c5pm9LCQ

Hawaii has spam flavors that the mainland could only dream of. I find this sort of sad since we live in the state SPAM was invented in.

my sister made a good point: y'all scheduled a Fark party on Doctor Who night.i told her we're all poor (or i suppose some are just cheap) and don't have BBCA.

holy hell. the weekend before, eh? i am able to attend. is this going to be a sausage-fest or what?? be honest
 
2013-10-24 03:53:19 AM

CraicBaby: I might be there, contingent upon weather and whether or not my boyfriend is all Fark partied out from the Columbus party the weekend before.


Could someone please post a link to the Columbus FARK party if there is one?
 
2013-10-24 05:15:31 AM
I'm inclined to agree with the Rice st comment. Sure it isn't Georgian, but stargate and the limplifter are a block away. As for having none east of the river, wasn't the last one at Grumpys in Roseville? Freddys is son the roseville border... Not really new either, its been there as long as I can remember, it just changed owners a couple years ago.

Yeah, I thought about that but I figured people could record it if needed.

As for the location. I'm thinking I'll check out McCarron's, Freddy's and the Lamplighter this Saturday to see what they look like at their most crowded. If anyone else wants to tag along as part of this exploratory committee, you're more than welcome. (DayDreamingD?)

I'll probably show up at the Lamplighter around 9pm then head to Freddy's around 10 and McCarron's around 11.
 
2013-10-24 12:26:45 PM
Neumann's Bar in North Saint Paul could also be another option.

I'll be at Freddy's, unless you all pick something else.

Checked out the various drinking establishments this weekend and I don't see a problem with Freddy's so we'll stick with it. It wasn't packed and this was on Halloween weekend.

We'll probably move over to McCarron's at some point in the evening too (it's only a block or two from Freddy's).

Just checking in:

It's been a long time, do they still have dancers at the Lamplighter?

And what was the final determination as to when where everyone is going to be meeting.
I vaguely recall mention of Grumpy's, but since I'm kind of a lazy sort, I haven't re-read the thread in order to find out if that was the final destination..
I'm interested in possibly making an appearance, as long as no one will be intimidated by my mini-celebrity status (I know people who know other people who know people that might know the people to know.) and if it still fits my sometimes hectic schedule.

We will be meeting at Freddy's at 7pm. We will also probably move to McCarron's (a couple blocks away, at 1986 Rice Street) later in the evening.

As for the Lamplighter, yes, they have dancers and it's possible we'll go there at the end of the night but that will be a game time decision.

make me some tea: Incorrigible Astronaut: Hey guys, rather than host these on the public page for this event and risk people getting tagged when they don't want to be, I'm going to post pictures from last night here and let everybody save/rehost them on your own.

And I only wussed out on it due to age - met up with a handful at the Blue Note Friday and just didn't want to party for a second night. So I sat at home adjusting the onions on my belt, and remembering how great Morganville used to be while figuring out how many rods to the hogshead my jalopy gets.

Anyone got five bees for a quarter?

I think we were all pretty drunk by the time he showed up. I'm sure somebody got one.
