Lexington 10th Anniversary Fark Party: TONIGHT 6pm at Redmons - not surprisingly Drew will be there

If you have a Facebook account, please confirm attendence here

I'm finally back in town from a week and a half of travel. The Pasadena and SF Fark parties were a blast, it was great seeing everyone. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone this weekend.

We moved the venue to Redmons (269 W. Main St), as the number of confirmed folks on the Facebook events page is larger than the capacity at the last place. Assuming we actually fill Redmons up (it holds 250), overflow is just around the corner at the Bluegrass Tavern on Cheapside. I plan on wandering between the two places if that happens, check Twitter/Facebook to find my current location. Redmons doesn't serve food however I can highly recommend Goodfellas Pizza just around the way on Mill St.

Since there are so many people in from out of town, we're looking at doing an informal thing (as if Fark parties are ever formal) on Saturday at the Horse and Barrel. My neighbors have a band that's playing there that night, that's where I'll be. I realize that's Valentine's Day - my wife and I usually go out on Feb 15th to avoid the crowds. Horse and Barrel DOES have food, normal pub fare.

Hopefully we'll see you all there!

Why don;t you just have everyone meet at the future CenterPoint location...

Plenty of room.. since it's just one big hole in the ground...

I'll be there Friday, but I've got a corporate party on Saturday.
 
2009-02-11 06:17:13 PM  
Can't be at the party on Friday.

I *could* be there for a party on Saturday. What time is everything starting on Saturday night?
 
2009-02-11 07:48:45 PM  
Count me in...

Not from Lexington but am only about 1.5 hours away; still got a hotel tho.

I want to celebrate where it ALL began :)

Plus any Kentuckian I've ever had contact with were all were super nice, helpful people. Should be a good time, I'm looking forward...

Damn the luck. Not 21 until March 4th. And I live within walking distance!
 
2009-02-12 01:48:33 PM  
If it wasn't for having a race first thing Saturday morning I would go. But I know I would do crappy if I stayed out all night.
 
2009-02-12 02:09:50 PM  
I heart you Drew but not enough to drive to Lexington to celebrate the birth of some website.

If you look like Ashley Judd, don't worry about it.

BTW, is there a back patio for joint smoking?

Littlett's

Have you had the maxillofacial surgery yet?

I'm a candidate myself, but it's like mega bucks to get it done.

This just in...after last night's windstorm it appears that the state of Kentucky should be natural disaster-free for the next 48 hours.

Good luck darlin'.

Damn, I'll be out of town. My sister used to work at Redmons. Neat place, but I prefer McCarthy's.
 
2009-02-13 02:32:59 AM  
I think I'll send my step-son in my stead. He lives in Versailles.

Not yet, I'm still in braces. If you have health insurance I would suggest you ask for pre-approval and appeal if you are declined on your first try. That is what I had to do.

Good luck with it! I hope that it is worth it, I should know by October at the latest.

jmr61: Good luck darlin'.


Thanks, it looks like the rain will be over with by race time now.

Have fun at the party!

Until that place comes up with a menu worth ordering something off of, I won't go back. Cozy idea, poor execution.

/Just moved from Lex to Indy, so not going anyhow :(

Goodfellas has a pizza so big you have to turn it sideways to get it through your door.
 
2009-02-13 09:40:13 AM  
Have a drink for me, too far for me to make it. I turn 42 tomorrow and would have been a great (early) birthday present.
 
2009-02-13 09:50:13 AM  
Why can't we have one in Nashvegas so I can go?
 
2009-02-13 09:54:42 AM

By an astonishing coincidence, I have to deliver something to someone in Lex tonight anyway, so I'll be there.

With a handle like 'PirateKing' I don't want to know what you'll be delivering.

somebody has to celebrate all those bush tax cuts during the last 8 years.

I'll celebrate from Michigan's upper peninsula. Alone. With yoopers and abominable snowmen all around.

Yeah, unfortunately, I have been through the whole insurance process of being denied then appealing and being denied again and then appealing again and being denied again. The only thing they wanted to cover was the anesthesia and overnight hospital stay. Everything else, they said, falls under a cosmetic category.

2009-02-13 03:36:42 PM  
I'm 30 minutes from heading towards LEX for the party. 45 minute drive, hour in the hotel bar prepping and then it's party time.

TOGA! TOGA!
