Where: The Washington Brewing Company
28 East Maiden St
Washington, PA 15301
When: Sunday Feb 25 @ 2pm (on-out by 2:30 to get back to the brewery ASAP since they are staying open late for us). Feel free to come earlier than 2pm though!
While many folks are prudes, we know hashers are generous and don’t mind goin’ down south every once in a while. So put your inhibitions aside and cum south with T-Bag and Titty Whiskers to the land formerly known as “Catfish Camp”… Washington, PA.
The Washington Brewing Company is situated right smack in the middle of some pretty cool historical stuff – a stop on the Underground Railroad, the first crematory in America, the house of one of the most infamous leaders of the Whiskey Rebellion and the home of Pony League Baseball. (The Brewery itself was once a Studebaker car dealership!)
Trail is a flat and leisurely mix of historical sites, beautiful woodlands, paranormal encounters, Victorian homes, playful diversions and distilled spirits. Shiggy rating is AWESOME, but only a few bits would rate > 6/9. (I’d strongly suggest not wearing a down jacket unless you’re planning to re-enact a tar and feathering).
Trail is A-A, turkey and eagle friendly, if your dog is a goat with kevlar boots and eye protection, and you can carry him over muddy obstacles, then it may be dog friendly (seriously – there’s some steep/shiggy areas that can’t be avoided).
Please pack an extra pair of kicks so you don’t track mud back into TWBC as they are graciously staying open late for us and CIRCLE WILL BE INSIDE!!!
No hash cash, we’ll provide libations and goodies on trail as well as circle beer and a few munchies back at TWBC. You can also pre-order food for after trail. (the meatloaf makes me swoon)
P.S. Washington is often pronounced “Worshington” or “Warshington” – there is no definitive explanation although some think it stems from the Scotch-Irish immigrants that settled here a couple of hundred years ago. My theory: Pirates, Arrrrr!
Hash #1817 – The House of Blue Lights
Yes it’s a George Thorogood song. It’s also what the locals (probably) now call the New Kensington Sheetz. You see, they installed blue lights in the bathrooms there so heroin enthusiasts have a hard time finding a vein to shoot up. Community health!
What does this have to do with trail? Well, Sheetz is right next to the start, The House of 1000 Beers. They got cider, they got stout, they got gluten free, they got craft, they got piss, they got it all okay? Come on out for what the RA promises will be a beautiful day. Your trail will be LIVE hared by Texas transplants Whale’s Vagina and Manwich. Can you catch the hare? Can you pull down his pants? Can you get a complimentary tire rotation while-you-wait? Probably! Will the trail be shitty? Definitely. Is there a chance the track could bend? This is a trail advertisement, not a municipal monorail discussion.
There will be falses, song checks, clothing checks, nipple-elbow checks, Brass Monkey check, blowjobs and snowballs. There will not be a 5-course catered dinner, surprise appearance by Shakira, or a pool check.
Bring: $0 hash cash, a sexy virgin, shiggy socks, your favorite koozie, a spirit of general bonhomie, someone’s attractive cousin, and a double dose of Naloxone.
Yes, we know that St. Patrick’s Day was the *previous* weekend, but so is everyone else’s GDR. But we are greedy and want our own Big Green Shitshow all to ourselves, dammit. Any travel hashers who’d like a 2nd weekend drinking in a green dress are welcome to visit our fair city and we’ll even help organize crash space. We will have a Costume Contest with prizes for Best Dressed, Sluttiest, and Most Ridiculous dresses. Also this is Moon’s 69th birthday weekend! (The clock goes backwards for him now.) Come and join our Big Green Shitshow!
Date: March 24th, 2018, 1:00 meet-up, 2:30 on-out

Cost: $20, sign up now at Hashrego
Trail: We cover all trail beer and snacks (pre-lube and on-after food is on you) and 100% of our hash cash goes to our selected charity.
Charity: Operation Safety Net is an amazing local organization that provides medical care and support to Pittsburgh’s homeless, and is internationally recognized for its good works, although it’s small enough and mostly volunteer-run, and we will give them a nice boost with our support.
