Memorial Day 2012
May 25th-28th, 2012
In celebration of its 8th year, the Chicago Hash House Harriers are pleased to announce the brand new and improved Memorial Day. In the past we’ve given you just one day of fun and debauchery, but no more. We’re going to use this extra special three day weekend to kick off all of the fun that Summer has in store for us.
Just like in year’s past we’re going to have an exceptionally shitty trail for you, some fun and games to be played at our beer stops, tasty brews to drink (Metropolitan and Half Acre will each be sponsoring a beer stop, and Goose Island is sponsoring the on-in), and an epic on-after at the history DANK Haus.
In order to keep things good and complicated, we’re giving you the special option of registering for the entire weekend for the low-low price of $55 (plus paypal fees) or for just the debauchery of Sunday for the cost of $35 (both prices are until April 23rd), then the price will go up to $65/$45 until May 14th. Anything after that and you’ll be charged $75/$55 and you’ll miss out on whatever sweet swag we’ll have for you. So be sure to rego today to ensure that you get everything.
(1) Fill out the paypal form at left.
(2) Pay Snatchsquatch at your next Chicago H3 Hash.
(3) Mail a check payable to “XXXXX XXXX” along with your Hash Name, Home Hash, Shirt Size, and whether your paying for the entire weekend or just Sunday to the following address:
XXXX W. Diversey Ave Unit M
Chicago, IL 60647
(4) Show up the day of the event with cash and have everyone pissed off at you.

As always, the Chicago Hash House Harriers invites everyone to join our sister hash, Thirstday, to start the weekend early. Your $8 will get you a shitty trail down in Lincoln Park hared by IndyScent tranny Double Fister. Remember, if you call in sick on Friday that means you can turn this three day weekend into a four day weekend.
Friday – May 25th, 7pm – Memorial Day Weekend Pre-Lube/Foofdeck Cookout – $10 –
Start off the weekend the right way with a trip to Party Central (aka Ruji’s Foofdeck). It’s Too Soft is being gracious enough to host us on his rooftop deck just step from the Diversey Brown Line stop. We’ll tap the keg(s) and fire up the grill starting at 7pm on Friday night and enjoy the weather, food, beer, and maybe each other’s company as visitors make their way into town. Who knows how late this party is going to go, but I bet there will be somebody up on that rooftop drinking all weekend long.

Hares: Snatchsquatch & Just Ehhh
The first of three trails that we have prepared for you this fine weekend. We’ll be doing a sweet A-B woods run starting out of Gamblers (4908 N. Pulaski). Be sure to bring your shiggy socks for this one.
Saturday – May 26th, 7pm – Rag Time H3 Memorial Day Pub Crawl – Pay As You Go –
Hares: Glitter Spitter & That Thing That Vibrates
Now that you’ve got your run in you, its time to crawl. Glitter Spitter, That Thing That Vibrates and the other ladies of Rag Time H3 will be leading us on a lovely bar crawl up Lincoln Avenue and into Lincoln Square. Your rego doesn’t cover this puppy, so be sure to bring some extra cash.

Sunday – May 27th, 1pm – Chicago H3 #1784- Memorial Day 2012 – $35-$55 –
Hares: Virgin Banger & Various Co-Conspirators
And now for the big prize – we’ll be meeting up at O’Lanagan’s in Lincoln Square for a good, long trail for the runners and a nice short one for the walkers. Virgin Banger and his band of merry men know the neighborhood better than anyone, so I’ve no doubt that they’ve got an epic trail planned for us.
Your rego for the main even gets you an event tag, a swank shirt, two beer stops sponsored by local breweries (Metropolitan and Half Acre) and fun games to be played. All of this will take place before we wind up at the historic DANK Haus with an on-in sponsored by Goose Island, an epic circle RAed by Chicago Legend Calvin Klein on the patio (if it fits us this time), and delicious food. Rego early to save yourself some cash and ensure that you’ll get the giveaways.
Monday – May 28th, 2pm – HO Hash – Memorial Day Hangover – $10 –
If you’re still alive after this epic weekend, be sure to spend your free day off of work thanks to the holiday with the Holiday Orphans (aka HO) Hash. Chicago H3 GM Snatchsquatch will be your hare on this exceptional day as Memorial Day proper falls on his birthday this year. What a treat, two shitty trails by the Chicago GM in one weekend.

Coming in from out of town? Not to worry. There are plenty of options for getting to and from Chicago. You can always fly in O’Hare (ORD) or Midway (MDW), take the Amtrack in to Union Station, take the Mega Bus, or you could even carpool up with your closest hash friends.
Need crash space? Don’t worry about that either – shoot Two Girls, One Cupcake an email by 5pm on Wednesday, May 23rd and she’ll coordinate with the rest of the Chicago H3 group to set you up with the perfect crash space partner (after that you’re on your own). Let her know how many people are coming, what nights you need crash space, and if you have any specific requests. If you’d rather find your own crash space you’re also welcome to post a message either in the comments, in our Yahoo! Group, on our Facebook page, via e-mail, or over our twitter, and we’ll do our best to set you up with a welcoming hasher. If you don’t want to stay with hasher, that’s cool too – the Chicago H3 suggests finding a room at the Days Inn Lincoln Park or at the Chicago Getaway Hostel, but be advised that no group rate has been procured from these institutions.
