From da GM: Once again, Chicago hashers will be gathering near Mile Marker 23 (the corner of 33rd and LaSalle) to hand out beer to those crazy enough to run the Chicago Marathon. Since this is a volunteering opportunity, we’re asking everyone to bring booze and dixie cups so that we can better hand out beer to the runners. If you are coming, it is also important to remember that thanks to Chicago’s archaic laws, you cannot buy beer on Sunday until 11AM, so plan ahead and buy a case on Saturday.
If you forget to get booze beforehand, don’t worry – you’re still welcome to come and assist and hang out. The more the merrier. Signs are also strongly encouraged to show support for your fellow racist hashers. It is also strongly encouraged that you bring your hashing clothes, since a large number of us will be hopping on the Red Line and heading right to the hash. If you have any problems finding where we’ll be, just look for the following intersection, as made famous by the movie Source Code.
Environmentally-Friendly Public Transit 🙂 From Lincoln Park/Lakeview: Get on the Red Line and head towards 95th/Dan Ryan. Exit the train at 35th/Sox Park and take the 33rd St Exit (that’s away from US Cellular Field, you boneheads). Once you’re up to the street, head East on 33rd St. If you can’t find us you’re either blind or stupid.
From Wicker Park/Bucktown: Get on the Blue Line and head into the Loop. Transfer over to the Red Line and head towards 95th/Dan Ryan. Exit the train at 35th/Sox Park and take the 33rd St Exit (that’s away from US Cellular Field, you boneheads). Once you’re up to the street, head East on 33rd St. If you can’t find us you’re either blind or stupid.
Driving 🙁 Don’t even try it. Everything is going to be shut down for the marathon, so even if you’re able to get your car down there you’re probably going to run into a ton of parking problems.
