Anthrax 2004

Hey hashers,

Great news to report! Details have been finalized for the long-
awaited 3rd Annual Great Chicago Anthrax Hash / Santa Hat Run.

When: Sunday, December 19th, 2:00pm

Where: The Hidden Shamrock – 2723 N Halsted St (Halsted just South
of Diversey). This year we’re returning to where it all
began… “The Rock” was the bar we ran for the original Great
Anthrax Hash in 2002!

Directions: Brown Line to Diversey, East to Halsted or CTA Halsted
8 Bus to Diversey. Driving, take the Kennedy to California exit,
turn East on Diversey, head East to Halsted. Parking is really
crappy in this ‘hood but best on Sundays. Try and find a meter spot
on Halsted or Diversey as meters are free on Sundays there and most
of the side streets require Zone permits.

Other Info: Following the Great Chicago Anthrax Scare in 2002, once
again It’s Too Soft will hare from the Hidden Shamrock on Diversey,
site of the original Anthrax Hash in 2002 and will set trail through
scenic Lincoln Park venue which promises classic urban trail through
one of the Ritz-iest neighborhoods in the City. Free Santa hats for
the first couple dozen hashers.

Cathy, the manager has hooked us up with $6 pitchers of Lite which
is awesome given this is a classy bar in a classy ‘hood. Additional
specials just for the hash, we also get $3.50 pints of Killian’s
Irish Red, $3.50 pints of Canadian Labatt’s Blue and vodka drinks
for $4 for those who want to party like a rock star on a school
night!!! Note they also have Guinness on tap!
