Chicago Hash #1613 – Summer Saturdays #3 – 7.25.09, 2nd Annual Taste of Lincoln Ave Hash @ Party Central SkyDeck a.k.a “Ruji’s Foofdeck”
Hare(s): Super Stuff’Her & Fuji a.k.a. It’s Too Soft
Venue: The SkyDeck @ Party Central – 933 W. Wolfram, Rooftop
Hash Cash: $8 gets you trail, more beer than you can shake a stick at, and BBQ party at the on-in. Hells bells for that price you’re lucky to get 1-1/2 beers in the Lincoln Park Green Zone on a Saturday.
After last year’s blowout the comedy team of Stuff’Her & Fuji once again set trail on the Saturday of the Taste of Lincoln Ave (or “TOLA” as my Lincoln Park crew calls it), the “Rose Bowl” of Chicago neighborhood Summer street festivals.
A-A from the Party Central SkyDeck where we’ll have a keg and hash cash will include BBQ tailgate party after the circle. For those interested after the hash we’ll be heading over to the 25th Annual Taste of Lincoln Ave which is arguably Chicago’s premier Summer street festival, just two blocks straight South from Party Central.
Trail will run by the fest entrance so those wanting to can get hand stamps and pay the $7 early bird admission rather than the $10 prime time after 4pm cost. Headliner bands include:
6:00 PM – Tyrone Wells
8:30 PM – Tonic
6:00 PM – Stache
8:00 PM – Cat Fight
6:00 PM – Hello Dave
8:30 PM – 16 Candles
And as a further bonus if we don’t kill the keg at the hash, there will be a post-festival party along with friends from the fest back at Party Central until we do kill it.
The CHICAGO HASH will be running on the last Saturday of each month in the SUMMER (except August which is a week earlier due to the proximity to the Labor Day Hash on Sunday). Many CH3 hashers have said they cannot run on Monday nights when we switched so here is your chance to stretch those legs on the weekend.
Environmentally-Friendly Public Transit ?
From Lincoln Park/Lakeview: Red Line to Fullerton, Brown Line to the Diversey stop, hoof it 1/2 block North up Sheffield and right (East) into the alley before Wolfram. Cross under the L tracks and into the first driveway to your left after the big fenced parking lot next to the tracks. Go up the back porch stairs to the Skydeck.
From Wicker Park/Bucktown: Blue Line to Logan Square. Hoof it a couplea blocks North to Diversey and take the Diversey #76 bus East to Sheffield.
Hop into your hooptie and cruise to Diversey & Sheffield. Side streets are resident zone permit after 6pm so best bet is Sheffield South of Diversey or Diversey West of Sheffield. Many meters in this ’hood are 9pm on Saturday so check your meter before parking your precious sled.
