#1268 - "Where's Tina?" hash
Hounds: Anything Goes, BTK, NBA, Puff
This hash was supposed to have started from Mort's Martini Bar, but apparently Mort's employees are weenies who are afraid of a few snow flakes. Not so, the hardy five hashers who braved the cold and snow to promote the local economy with our business. When we found out that Mort's was closed, the hare made the last-minute change to Joe's, across the street, for the start and end location.
The snow made the use of chalk problematic for marking trail, but the hare fortunately had another method in mind. And here is where the theme of the hash comes into play. This was the "Where's Tina?" hash, which was doubly appropriate in that Tina did not attend the hash, but he was there in spirit by helping out in the setting of trail. Dip had previously stolen photographs of Tina and Tina's lovely bride from the tables at Tina and nnMarisa's wedding reception. The hare put these photos in baggies and stashed them along the trail in the snow. A double-sided photo-baggie was an intersection whereas a single photo meant that we were on. So, it was cold. And it was snowy. And the hounds found the first intersection, but immediately lost trail. Fortunately, we knew where the BN was going to be, (and BN stood for Bourbon Near), so we made our way to Rain, where the hare was waiting for us with hash cash to pay for our $1 bourbon beverages. Puff was crowned The Supreme Hound because he found 3 of the photo baggies whereas the other 3 wankers found zero.
After way too many bourbons consumed by all, the hare took off for the rest of the trail and the on-in. The hounds kept him in our sight, so the photos were not needed. We had had enough of Tina by that time anyway. Once at Joe's we ordered more beverages and a pizza, and that's about all this writer remembers. It was a shitty and snowy trail, and the weather outside was frightful. On on!
