Fark Party
Host: FishyFred
Description: Remember to get your Bowie and your big hair out of storage for this Saturday's DC Labyrinth Fark Party. We are not liable for blindness caused by staring at Bowie's... pants
Date/Time: December 5, 2009 - 08:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Harry's is a cheap dive near Metro Center (436 11th St. NW). Just don't order the food. Word is it's epically terrible. If you get hungry, walk over to Gifford's and get some ice cream.

E Street Cinema is across the street and does these sorts of screenings all the time. In fact, playing at the same time as Labyrinth is Tommy Wiseau's so-bad-it's-funny-classic The Room.
 
Meet at: Harry's
436 11th St NW, Washington, DC 20004, USA

FYI so we all don't stand around in opposite corners of the room wondering who the Farkers are: I'll wear a black t-shirt that says in big letters "FOLLOW ME. I TOURETTES TO THE BEAT." Nobody else owns this shirt. You can't miss it.

Undecided about wearing a button-down shirt over that, but I'll make sure to leave the buttons open so I am easily identifiable.

If anyone is coming up from Southern Maryland and wants to get a ride with me after 4 EIP. I have a final at 2 but it should be cake and then I may head up. However I get lost as hell in the city so someone who knows how the hell I can park and take the metro in would be awesome.

Four hours of drinking followed by a midnight showing of Labyrinth? I'm in! FYI to people: this show could potentially sell out, so get your tickets either online or before you meet up at Harry's.

This is true. Those theaters aren't very large. Most of them don't even seat 100.

For Labyrinth they'll probably use one of the bigger theaters (that's what they did the last time they showed it... hell yeah I was there!), but it was still a packed house. We'll want to be there early to get a group of seats together as well.

Harry's has fine (bar) food. I've had lunch there several times with DC Farkers.
 
2009-12-01 2:58:28 PM  
Also, even though the address says 11th Street, go in the E Street door across from ESPN Zone. That's the bar entrance and you won't have to walk through the bathroom and seating area.

I'll try to be there. Love that movie.

Last time I went to Harry's I was refused service for being too drunk, so I stole some silverware from a table on my way out. I think the bartender was right.

But how was the brunch?

I want to go eat all the potato chips at Harry's but I am too fat to be seen in public.

I didn't know that the elderly knew about brunch, now!

At least you have a good excuse. I recently gave birth to a brown bear but I can't write that off on my taxes. Or can I......

The last Fark Party at the Black Rooster, I was struck by the revelation that D.C. is the jackpot of hot Farkettes. I know you were there. Therefore, you're on the hot list. QED.

Brunch ends at 9:00am for us.

I thought that maybe you were accidentally given the brunch menu when you showed up for dinner at 4:00.

Whaaaaat? Where was I when this was announced? I don't think my D&D posse would approve of my ditching them for Bowie... no matter how glorious his crotch may be.

It was a cod piece! A Cod Piece!
 
2009-12-03 12:04:29 PM  
Damnation. I have drill.
 
2009-12-03 12:05:33 PM  
If drunk, I think it would be a bad idea to eat ice cream.

I'm jealous. I wish I could afford to drive up there from Florida. I love that movie.
 
2009-12-03 12:23:17 PM  
I too have eaten at Harry's and lived. Meh, it's bar food. I can't imagine anyone here is too fancy for that. Ella's pizza is pretty close & yummy if one must eat, but I say why interfere with the drinking

to paraphrase Invader Zim:

"I've never been to a Fark party before, do they hurt?"

/seriously considering dropping by, though.

might swing by after the company holiday party, but probably not.
 
2009-12-03 12:29:43 PM  
Excuse me....In "Dance Magic" do they say "slap that baby and make him pee" or is it "see"? My friend insists it's "see" but everytime I watch it I can't hear the word "see" at all. Am I wrong?

Do they hurt? That depends on the photographs.

I went to one in Arlington. This farker started hitting on my g/f when I was over talking to other farkers, when I came back I was getting these "go away she's mine" looks from him, which was quite comical to both of us.

/married to her now

I always heard it as "slap that baby, make him scream"

The food there isn't THAT bad. It's not great, but you could do worse.

A Fark Labyrinth party? When did Fark lose it's balls?

Gwendolyn: someone who knows how the hell I can park and take the metro in would be awesome.


Super Commuter to the Rescue!

go to this link

The stations are clickable on it, and have maps, and photos of the street views.

If you're coming up 301, go west on 50 and park at New Carollton (Orange Line).

If you're coming up 4 or 5, toss a coin for Largo Town Center (Blue) or Branch Avenue (Green Line).

All three are End of the Line stations and have lots of parking.

If you're coming up 95, well, I wouldn't.
 
2009-12-03 1:13:43 PM  
I wouldn't care about Bowie's pants if Michael Moschen would just stop playing with his balls.
 
2009-12-03 1:16:13 PM  
And if you meet the farker of your dreams, or just the one of your immediate fantasy, you can get a cheap room at the Hotel Harrington, preferred venue for noon-time work-day fark-fests.
 
2009-12-03 1:19:53 PM  
Possible change of plans. I might wear this awesome jersey instead.

[image from photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net too old to be available]

Either way, you'll be looking for a shirt that nobody else wears.
 
2009-12-03 1:24:15 PM  
I don't own a Bowie, but I have a hunting knife with an 8" blade and a couple of bayonets.

Would that do?
