Chicago Hash #1562 8.31.08 @ Party Central SkyDeck – 4th Annual Labor Day Hash
Hare(s): The CH3 Hare Triumvirate – It’s Too Soft (Lincoln Park Party Dude Extraordinaire), Lifa (CH3 Master Hare Level VII) and Just I Lean (CH3 Hare Rookie of the Year)
Venue: Party Central SkyDeck – 933 W Wolfram St, rooftop (go up the back stairs) just Northeast of the brand spankin’ new Diversey Brown Line station.
Hash Cash: Still only $8 gets you more beer than you can shake a stick at, Labor Day BBQ cookout at the on in, some of the best urban shiggy trail to be found in the Green Zone aka Beverly Hills 60614, and lotsa Trixie/Chad sightings as you can never get enough “eye candy” on trail!
The Weather Gods are fixin’ to smile upon us again as the forecast for Sunday is 81 DEGREES AND SUNNY!!!
OMG where did Summer 2008 go? It’s been one massive blur of sun & fun, running, and more importantly, BEER but a great one!
To mark the last days of Summer 2008 we are holding our own version of “Closing Ceremonies” not in Beijing but right here in THE Chicago Hash House Harrier’s very own “Bird’s Nest Stadium”, the SkyDeck at Party Central!
Just like we do every year for Memorial Day and Labor Day, we move the regular hash to Sunday to allow the holiday Monday for recovery time!!!
Your hares promise spectacular trail and beautiful weather here in the heart of the Lincoln Park “Green Zone” and a blowout postparty that will involve serious grilled foodstuffs and keg(s) on the SkyDeck! While not historically as much of a “foody affair” as Memorial Day, Labor Day Hash has devolved over the years into more of a totally off-the-hinges Category Five Drinkstravaganza! However the food will still be good as always and we might even toss a few shrimp on the barbie.
Given that only 17 people blew out my keg at JV Hash #2 on the Skydeck this one could set more drinking World Records than Michael Phelps!
And who knows, we might even do an impromptu Summer Outdoor Movie night on the SkyDeck after the hash as the HD projector and 110″ diagonal screen just might be “available” and as always, out-of-towners (as well as hot local chicks) are always welcome to crash at Party Central as hotels in Chicago ain’t cheep. And now thanks to the Sony Outlet in Kenosha, Party Central is now equipped with Blu-Ray HD technology too!!!
Environmentally-Friendly Public Transit ?
From Lincoln Park/Lakeview: Red Line to Fullerton, Brown Line to the recently re-opened Diversey stop (woo-hoo!!!), hoof it 1/2 block North up Sheffield and right (East) into the alley before Wolfram. Cross under the L tracks and into the first driveway to your left after the big fenced parking lot next to the tracks. Go up the back porch stairs to the Skydeck.
From Wicker Park/Bucktown: Blue Line to Logan Square. Hoof it a couplea blocks North to Diversey and take the Diversey #76 bus East to Sheffield.
Hop into your hooptie and cruise to Diversey & Sheffield. Side streets are resident zone permit after 6pm so best bet is Sheffield South of Diversey or Diversey West of Sheffield. Many meters in this ’hood are 9pm or Sunday check your meter before parking your precious sled.
