Febrewary Hash Returns in Indiana!
Joint Hash w/Second City
Hare(s): EZ on the A$$ and Soar Balls
Venue: 3 Floyds Brewery – 9750 Indiana Parkway, Munster, Indiana 46321. Phone: (219) 922-3565
After a 2-year hiatus, Soar Balls, with the help of Easy on the Ass, is once again putting the brewery back in Febrewery. Wake the kids, phone the neighbors, and bring your own sorry butt out to the 3 Floyds brewery (makers of Robert the Bruce, Pride and Joy, and Alpha King, among others) and brewpub on Sunday, Feb. 12. There will be a brewery tour starting at or about 1:00 PM, followed by a little hash run, starting around 2:45 (to accommodate those taking the train), and down-downs will take place in the brewpub. If you’re a homebrewer, feel free to bring out some of your product for a little tasting.
To get to 3 Floyds, take the Edens/Kennedy/Dan Ryan/Bishop Ford freeway (aka I-94) south to the first exit in Indiana (Calumet) and proceed about 2.5 miles south to Superior (just past the Speedway station). Turn right on Superior and go about .25 mile to Indiana Parkway, turn left and proceed about .2 mile, and 3 Floyds will appear on your right.
If you’re not inclined to drive, you can catch the South Shore Line from the Millennium Park/Lower Randolph station (lower level of Randolph between Michigan Ave and the Millennium Park garage) at 11:59 AM if you’d like to hit the tour or at 2:00 PM if you’re just interested in running. Rhotan has volunteered his van to shuttle folks to and from the Hammond stop in Indiana. Trains return to the city, leaving from Hammond, at 4:20, 6:20, 8:20 and 10:20 PM.
NOTE: This is the SOUTH SHORE line, not Metra. It’s operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District. Click here for their website. Don’t get on the wrong train. I believe it will cost $4 each way.
