Start: N/E Corner of 6th Avenue & 34th Street
On-In: The Stumble Inn, 76th Street & 2nd Avenue
Hares: Splat & Premature Evacuation
Scribe: Doggie Erectus
The pack gathered near the Empire State Building for a little pre-Valentine’s Day R*n. Those of us that are dating non-hashers get to endure some funny looks and snide remarks for missing this special day.
The hares did pay homage to the holiday by having a drink stop with red Gatorade and heart-shaped candy in a romantic little gazebo in the park. I was running with a Harriette and hoped the booze and candy would loosen her up a little, but she ran out of there so fast she took out a few tourists. More on that later…
We ended up at the Stumble Inn and convened the circle and gave out Down-Downs:
The Hares: Splat & Premature Evacuation
Virgins: Julia & Kristen
Stinky Fingers for plowing into two tourists in ten seconds
David for a Hash Crash
Premature Evacuation for telling us there were lots of checks, well maybe not that many, well, maybe only a few…
We paused circle for a moment to play charades to see who could figure out the theme of the day’s trail. The pack guessed boredom & Starbuck’s before finding the correct answer: ice skating rinks.
And we’re back in circle, Game On!
Four Wheel Drive got the Luddite award for finally getting a cell phone
Eager for Beaver for new shoes
Matt got A$$hole of the week for throwing beer out
There were some more gameshow-like awards and antics that I missed. My girlfriend had showed up at the On-In and I was busy explaining my earlier behavior.
