Fark Party
Host: stainedglassdoll
Description: May 3, 8pm: STL Fark Party 2: Electric Boogaloo (UPDATED)
Date/Time: May 3, 2014 - Time TBD
Party Info: Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/596269863759416/
Get drunk, climb on shiat, shove children and throw balls in their faces (plastic ones of course). We're doing a Fark Party Redux at the City Museum on the first weekend in May.

More details to come, but possible fun activities:
the zoo!
museums (it's like a zoo for art)!
bars!
gardens (it's like a zoo for plants)!
good food!

Hope to see everyone there!

------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE (4/16/14):

OK FOLKS HERE'S ALL THE INFORMATION I HAVE SO FAR:

Transportation:
------------------------------------------------
-Here is a map of the Saint Louis primary metro route:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/72/MetroLink_map_Oct2 0 08.svg
-A day pass costs $7.50, but there are other options as well. The fare chart can be found here: http://www.metrostlouis.org/FaresPasses/FareChart.aspx
-Three major stops to note:
1) Lambert-STL: This is the airport stop. I am offering to drive people to/from the airport maybe, but if not, the metro is going to be cheaper than a taxi.
2) 8th and Pine: This stop is the closest stop to the Omni hotel, where most folks are staying. It's about 0.2 miles, so not a far walk at all. This is also the closest stop to the main party venue on Saturday night (0.7 miles, ~15 min walk).
3) Central West End: This stop is near the Karaoke bar some of us are planning to go to Friday night (more info on that below).

Itinerary:
--------------------------------------------------
Friday evening: Some of us are planning to go to karaoke. The place I'm most familiar with is Tom's Bar and Grill. Karaoke starts at 9 pm, but I'll probably get there earlier to grab a table, drinks, dinner, etc. http://www.tomsbarandgrill.com/events.html

Saturday, day: There are lots of things to do in Saint Louis, so have fun exploring the city! If you have any ideas for things you want to do as a group, let me know. We may go to dinner at Schlafly Bottleworks, so that's an option. Let me know if you need suggestions, too.

Saturday, 8 pm - ???: The main party is being held at City Museum (http://citymuseum.org/site/). ***There is a General Admission fee!*** The fee is $10 + tax. Sorry. When you enter the Museum, there is a bar shaped like a log cabin on the left. This will be the main meetup location for the party. People will be coming and going through the building during the party but that will be the general base of operations. City Museum closes at midnight, but there are plenty of bars and clubs and general cool shiat in the area so we can keep the party going for awhile.

Sunday, brunch: I was hoping we could all nurse our hangovers at Rooster on Sunday (http://roosterstl.com/). It's near the hotel, and the food is pretty good as far as I've experienced. If we want to go as a whole group we can call ahead, or just kind of trickle in and commandeer the place, I suppose.

----------------------
That's all the information I have so far. Hope that helps, let me know what other information you need!

Hot damn, I love the City Museum.  I no longer live in St. Louis, but you guys have a blast!

Now THIS is a Fark party that has me written all over it! Particularly the part where children are shoved...

If you like to drink, we have a sh*tload of bars, but there aren't a ton of other attractions here aside from all of the Abraham Lincoln stuff.

It's less than an hour and a half drive for me, so there's a pretty good chance as long as I don't have any other obligations that weekend.

Of the two local brewpubs that have opened in town so far, they have the better beer. I give the edge on food to Engrained, but their beer needs a lot of work. Overall I think Obed and Isaacs is better.

not a big beer drinker, but we did do the beer samplings.  they were decent.  one thing we really liked was that they also did whiskey samplings.  that was interesting.  the food was really good.

I'm going Saturday to see the Ducks vs. Blues.

I heart STL. I've never lived there but grew up 120 miles away. The City Museum is so great, I did kind of shove a kid the last time I went there. Little shiat was hogging the tunnel.

Mayhap I'll go to this if I can connect it to a hockey game or family visit.

I've updated both the facebook event page and this page to include information about the party, hotel, transportation, etc (FB event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/596269863759416/ ).  Please let me know if you have any questions, or suggestions for group activities on Saturday or things you want to do and other whathaveyous.

It's going to be a farking awesome showdown.  Maybe this year we'll meet another celebrity (last year farkers met Flavor Flaaaav)!

I don't know about Missour-ah, but in Missour-ee (i.e. St. Louis), you'll be fine.

ugh. don't.
just, don't.

Hey, don't blame me that the rest of the state is filled with people who pronounce things weirdly, e.g. "Worshington" instead of "Washington."

The thing that makes my eye twitch the most is "melk" instead of "milk".


Yur all idyets.

I'll be there. Just to get asked to leave.

You'll be fine in St. Louis.  Tons of Asians here.


You can still call em Orientals here in STL. And we are super progressive: We have Chinese and Mexican restaurants on every block!

Mother of god... a fark party in Missouri.  And only an hour and a half away.  Hmm..

I'm in, but, much like on Fark, I'll be in the corner listending to everyone else argue and/or be funny.

Nope.  Just show up!

I've got Molly Lewis' "Road Trip" song queued up already.
 
2014-04-30 06:55:19 AM
May 3rd?  This Saturday?

Once again, I'll have to work that night, so unless the party starts before 2 pm, I'm not going to be able to attend.

Just to clarify because I've never been to a Fark party before, are you saying I don't need to get on a list or anything? I just show up at the City Museum on Saturday?

Awesome. Fairly sure I'm going to be able to make it at this point. Just need to get a hotel room. Thanks.

Cool!  Seems like everytime there is a Fark Party in the STL I am out of town schoolin.  In town this time and gonna try my damnest to be there!
 
2014-04-30 05:52:51 PM
I'm getting SUPER EXCITED.  I can't wait to see everyone there!
 
2014-05-02 01:08:48 AM
Can someone pick me up on the way? I'm only on the other side of the country.
 
2014-05-02 02:34:41 AM
I might be there. I'm sure there's less than half a dozen people who gives a shiat. If I knew that Drew, Mike, Bathia, Unfreakable, Brap, Xanadien, Calbert, Meow, Megarian, Some beer drinker, Funkout, and a few others I can't think of right now, I would probably, most likely go.
 
2014-05-02 04:17:41 AM
I guess if someone wants to meet me after your party on Saturday night, I could provide instructions to my workplace.. it's not all that close to the City Museum, though.  I'm out in Westport.

Of course I see this AFTER agreeing to work for basically all of the times activities have been suggested. I'll *try* to meet up with you guys somewhere, but it may well depend on regular updates to the thread during said activities.

If I *do* show up, I'll bring cameras for postings on the lines. And for the capturing of souls.

SCSB: At a car show a couple weeks ago, a 3-4 yr old child was FASCINATED by my huge lenses, and sat and watched me take pictures for a few minutes. His mom was with him, saying things like "He's taking pictures, like we do with you! His camera is just WAY bigger" etc. As I get up to move, I quickly spin to point it at him, click the shutter and say "HA HA! Now I have your soul!" There was a half second of silence, and the kid bursts into wailing tears. His mom thought this was hilarious. This was good, because it meant I didn't have to feel bad about making a kid cry.

Well, at least one of those will be there, I hear....

I say we bet on who gets stuck in one of the little tunnels and needs the jaws of life.

We should probably get The Hobbit's feet waxed so they don't get caught in a fence or something.

No, he'll be ok.  Hobbits are surprisingly nimble.

Selling kneepads in the giftshop was a great idea.

That was awesome.  Thanks everyone for coming out! I had a blast!
 
2014-05-04 02:17:43 AM
Meanwhile, I'm having an exceedingly quiet night at work in Westport.  Which beats the heck out of the busy ones.

Darn. I'll miss it then - going to lunch with my sister and her friend. Give my regards to the Fark brigade for a great weekend and I'll see you at the next STL a Fark party.

I posted a bunch of pictures on my FB page. Given that this (and the event page) are public, I didn't want to put EVERYTHING here, but here are a couple:
