Beets the Shit Outta Me

It’s a Pitt off week, so what else are you doing??? Come out to Darkside #39 and celebrate a shig-tabulous trail drinking beers with your favorite hash buddies.

Darkside#40 Plea Barkin’ & TBD @ Caliente Pizza & Drafthouse
Jun 14 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Beets – I hope Yinz are ready!!!! Plea Barkin’ has one hell of a trail planned. If anyone was on his last trail you will understand….

Plea – Turns out I am not the only one to makes bad darkside decisions when drinking-ABS and Spermit both agreed to co-hare while under the influence at the weekend.

Consider prelubing at Caliente, They are putting ten hazy IPAs on tap this Friday, and I imagine a lot will be left by Thursday. They have a great happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30, but after that their prices are outright extortion.

Hares will supply at least two beer stops, if the pack wants, we can have an optional contra one that I imagine you will want once you get there. Spray on sweat resistant tick repellent prior to trail. Everything else will be an unpleasant surprise.

Darkside#41 E=MC Hammered & Lips @ Village Tavern
Jul 13 @ 6:30 pm – 10:15 pm

Darkside#41 E=MC Hammered & Lips

Trail details:
What: Dark side Trail #41

Where: Village Tavern, 424 S Main St, Pittsburgh, PA 15220
Who: E=MC Hammered and Lips of Steel
What: who cares, there’s beer

So you think you are brave enough to venture out on Friday the 13th. But are you too scared to come out to the Darkside on Friday the 13th??? Come test your luck by joining E=MC Hammered and Lips of Steel for a leisurely jaunt around West End.
Trail is about 95% doggable. Bring a light!!!! Plan for a spattering of shiggy, possible moistness, beer, and scary places. There will be a chicken option for those that have four legs, the wankers that don’t have lights, and those that are. . . well.. . just plain ScArED. Bring a light!
Oh, yea and update your life insurance.
