The big weekend is upon us!!! 4th Annual Great Chicago Anthr@x Scare Hash &
Santa Hat Run in Lincoln Park!
This Sunday @2pm Chicken Stiffer and the original “Hazmat Hare” (me) will hare
out of the lovely Hidden Shamrock at 2723 N. Halsted (just South of Diversey).
Easiest way to get there is Brown Line to Diversey and go West to Halsted or
take the Halsted 8 bus there. Parking on the side streets is Zone 143 after 6pm
and sucky in general in my ‘hood, but meters on Halsted and Diversey are free on
For those driving in from out of the area take I-94 to Exit 47 (Fullerton) and
head East towards the lake about 1-1/2 miles to Halsted and then North on
Halsted about four blocks to Diversey. Diversey itself is horrible East/West
and Belmont is not much better.
As always, please bring your Santa hat to the run if you have one. There will
some free Santa hats courtesy of the hares for the first few hashers. There is
also a very high probability that the first ever Great Chicago Anthr@x Hash
t-shirts will be available too with some door prizes for the lucky few. Dress
warmly as it’s December (and there’s snow on the ground too) and we’ll be in
the back room (with the couches, widescreen TV and fireplace). Our special is
$6 pitchers (including the good stuff) and they will keep the kitchen open just
for us in case you’d like to load up on grub. Hope to see y’all Sunday!
