Fark Party
Host: skatedrifter
Description: Denver Fark Party: 4/19 - 4/20
Date/Time: April 19, 2014 - 07:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Come experience the Largest 4/20 Rally IN THE WORLD, in Denver's beautiful Civic Center Park on 4/19/ - 4/20 and celebrate the legalization of recreational marijuana! Daytime: Spend at the festival or check out downtown, only a couple blocks away. Evening: Meet up at Punch Bowl Social for drinks, bowling, ping-pong, video games, snark and more! It's a two day festival so we can go again on Sunday if there are people that couldn't make it on Saturday, or we could do a hike or go the Denver Botanic Gardens, if there is interest. I called a few hotels downtown and they do have rooms available for this weekend. Give me a shout if you have any questions or suggestions.
 
Location: Punch Bowl Social
65 Broadway
Denver, CO 80203
(303) 765-8695

Hmm. Maybe.

Not to be a downer, but my understanding is that they were not given a permit to hold a rally in the park. They still plan on having it, of course, but dont expect it to be like previous years with all the booths and whatnot. If people start setting those up, there might be a problem with the cops, and you know what happens when they get involved.

libranoelrose: People will be too high to remember to come.


working on it.  still a month's notice.  I've never been to a Fark party, but I might try to remember to go to this one.  I usually only go to Denver to buy weed anyway.

And I don't know what the punch bowl is, but seeing as this is Colorado I imagine it involves fists and bowling balls and probably snow boards for some reason.

I'm almost out of my legal marijuana too.  I'll probably be out again in another month.  If I go, I will lock my car keys in the safe in my hotel room and forget the combination and take a taxi if anything is not in walking distance.  And I'll bring lots of weed too.

They got the permit for the rally but the city isn't allowing public pot smoking.

Hey, will there be any way we can identify each other? I am deeply reluctant to speak with, oh hell, anybody. I'd prefer some readily discernible common ground. Any suggestions?  A yellow t-shirt? Special hat? Tiny ashen smudge on the forehead? I doubt if I'm alone in this thinking...

That's a great idea, I will do that. I'm also thinking about making mini Easter baskets for party favors.

It's a bar/bowling alley in a up and coming (read: hipstery) part of town...from what I've seen of the people going in and out they are primarily hipsters or yuppies and the venue is relatively new so on a relative scale of bars the odds of having a fight break out are on the lower side.  I haven't ever been inside so I can't comment on the snowboards but from being in the immediate vicinity the people going in and out were way more intimidated by me than I was of them.
 
2014-04-06 03:14:15 PM  
i like how there were gunshots last year as i was driving right by the park on lincoln.  Nah, wont be going this year.  i havent been to punch bowl yet but i havent heard anything amazing about it either, and i lived 10 blocks from that area for like 5 years.

As someone that grew up in SoCal (till age 5ish) they TRUCKED snow in to our pre-school and let us have at it.

It's the CA way (by the time you get here, it's going to be beautiful but plan for colder nights.. as far as rain, either it will be in the long term forecast or not - around CO, they can go quite a while without, although it's not quite like socal that way.

JustFarkingGreat: I'll be an official judge at the Cup, looks like I'l be dropping in!


Nice!  We have "special" VIP tickets and I'm hoping they pick some random schmuck (me) out of the crowd for some judging action :D

/ I know that's not going to happen

You have to wear pants to Fark parties?  Well, fark it then.  I'm not going.

It's been really warm in CO lately.  I've even got a bunch of windows open.

Did it really snow IN DENVER a couple of days ago?  It's been hitting 70 degrees a little north of there.  I can believe it snowed in the mountains.

A quote from the movie The Battle of the Bulge (oddly enough, not a porno)

-Look, Pops! It's snowing! It's snowing! Aaayyyeee! Aaayyyeee! I never saw 
snow up close before. It's beautiful! 
-You didn't by chance hear that it's kinda cold and a little on the wet side. Did 
you?



Snow is nasty....and wet....and cold....and dangerous on the roads.  Snow is probably the reason we legalized marijuana in Colorado.....because we kept getting bored on ski lifts.  And it was snowing.

I'm not wearing pants to the party, mostly likely a skirt.

That's just how I roll.

Going to snow a metric crap-ton on Sunday.  Will be long gone by 4/20.

/except in the mountains

Don't do it!  I had a friend who used to inject marijuanas into himself every day.  It got so bad that he ran out of vains and then he injected five joints into his pee pee.  They found him dead the next day.  He choked to death on his own diarrhea.

Denver weather is very unpredictable in April and May. Could snow like a mofo, could be in the 70s and lovely. Bring a jacket AND boob paint just to be safe, kids.
 
2014-04-12 10:22:26 PM  
I almost read this as the Donner Fark Party.
 
2014-04-12 11:39:26 PM  
Hopefully they don't get 4 to 8 inches of snow next weekend like tomorrow.
 
2014-04-13 02:38:31 AM  
I wave my wand, and the snows will fall on the 15th primarily and be melted by the 18th just because.

SlothB77: Hopefully they don't get 4 to 8 inches of snow next weekend like tomorrow.


I just checked my forecast.   "100% chance of precipitation"

I just looked out the window.  I don't see any precipitation.

Maybe it won't snow.  It will all melt soon enough even if it does.  Or worse, it could be rain.

True Dat.  It was 80 on Friday and 34 and snowing this morning.

If you don't have a med card it's well worth getting one.  Med weed is $25-40 an eight taxes included.  The dispensary i go to is pretty great but not Heisenberg type shiat and they have $35 quarters this month.  Last I saw recreational weed was $70 an eighth.after tax.  It costs $50-$75 for an exam and $80 to the state for the card.  This is why the tax revenues are way under forecast because everyone here that is really into weed kept their med card.

It's finally warming up this week. Still kinda chilly at night though.
 
2014-04-18 08:41:29 PM  
I'll be working that day. Can I come in uniform?
 
2014-04-18 09:36:36 PM  
I'm in.
 
2014-04-18 10:29:05 PM  
I really want to be there. I really want to live there. I am so poor I am stuck in California where weed is not only still illegal they're closing the dispensaries and making weed even more illegal. My city is very anti-cannabis. It sucks. Here I am in the state where the medical legalization began and it's going backwards.
