BH3 #694

Date: Monday October 28, 2013 Brooklyn Hash Number: 694 On-In:  718 Bar, 5th avenue & 23rd Street Hare:  Whoremaster Scribe: Rack N Roll’Her I arrived at the random start location of 8th Avenue and 9th Street at about 6:50, very early by hash standards, to find Fluffy and one other hasher waiting for our hare.  Fluffy proceeded to tell us that it was likely no0one else would come, because Whoremaster’s trails were so notoriously awful that any hasher would have stayed home or found something, anything, else to do that night.   Not this group!  Soon a crowd of commuters flooded out of the F station, and with them hashers, who either had never met Whoremaster, or have early signs of Alzheimer’s.  Our hare gave the usual spiel about the trail, and took a random poll asking if we would like pizza, tacos, Chinese or falafel.  A few cries of pizza and tacos were heard, but mostly the pack was silent, not used to be asked for their opinion.  Then off we went to Prospect Park!  We immediately were lost at the first check, after running a quarter of a mile.  The pack split up, ran in every direction, re-grouped and then split up again.  I wisely decided to stick close to Blackout, after hearing that he knew where the On In was.  After 30 minutes of running around in a 400-meter radius, cries of On On were heard (really this time!), and hope was regained.  Down a pitch-black pathway we went, to some southern corner of the park where Eager for Beaver emerged from the woods and provided very...

BH3 #690

  Date: Monday September 30th, 2013 Brooklyn Hash Number: 690 Scribe: Rack N Roll’Her On-In:  Lulu’s, Franklin & Greenpoint Ave Hares:  Eager for Beaver & Speedo Gonzalez Scribe: Rack N Roll’Her It is tradition at the kennels of the NYC area (and maybe other hashes too, but who cares), that the first trail after an AGM is set by the “New” JMs.  I can not think of a hasher (Dogface?  Smashmouth?) who could tell you the origins of this tradition, but we like it and it makes the hareraiser’s life easier because it’s one less day on calendar that requires the nagging of your lazy asses.  (I’ll set trail soon, I promise). The trail started outside the Bedford L stop on a foul smelling street corner.  The pack took off promptly at 7:15, soon to be lost nearby at McCarren Park.  What is to be said about the trai?  Well, a month later, whatever little I can remember and more of what I feel like making up.  The pack enjoyed a tour of some of Williamsburg’s new condos, its crowded streets, and Greenpoint’s  Polish storefronts and neighborhoods.  After getting lost again on McGinnis Boulevard, and then again in another area of Greenpoint that even hipsters don’t travel to, the pack was rewarded with a gorgeous, unobstructed view of Manhattan at small public park on West Street.  Lets hope our next mayor doesn’t give the land to Bruce Ratner. Undeterred by our JM’s attempt to lose us in an area of Brooklyn serviced only by the G train (seriously, Greenpoint doesn’t even have Citibike), the pack made it the On...

Scotland Day R*n NYCH3 #1476

Scotland Day R*n NYCH3 #1476 When: Sunday, April 15, 2012, 3pm Hares: Legs Lesley, Mean Jean, Fire in the Piehole Start/Pre-lube: Caledonia Scottish Pub – 2nd Ave bet. 83rd St & 84th St On-In: Danny & Eddie’s, 1st Ave & 86th St Scribe: Eager for Beaver JMs in the Circle: T*t Totaller and Pimpy Longstocking This thing you hold in your hands – not that thing, this thing – is called a write-up.  In ancient times, as far back as April of last year, so-called scribes would be chosen to write about the hash in which she or he just participated. This story would summarize events at the start, on trail, and at the on in.  Someone with access would use a device called a copy (or even more ancient Xerox) machine to print the story on something our ancestors called paper.  These copies would be left conspicuously at the on-in for recovering hashers to kill time between beers.  While this lost art has been revived especially for today’s hash, I wouldn’t expect to see another actual write-up for at least another year. I’ve been told that we’ve celebrated the end of Tartan Week ever since the English majority in the hash allowed Scots to join – 8 years, apparently.  Historically, the pack would prelube at St. Andrews Pub, so-called, “The only Scottish Restaurant and Bar in New York City”.  This year, however, we met the hares at Caledonia Scottish Pub (possibly “The only Scottish Pub in New York City”?) on the Upper East Side. The trait that both venues share – really fucking expensive beer – ensured that...
