Hares: Idle Handjobs
This meet-up is intended to help reach out to new members. Don't let the low numbers of people who RSVP on this site fool you: there are generally 15 to 30 hashers at every event. More for special events. Sometimes as many as 100 at things like the Red Dress R*n.
The way a hash generally works is everyone meets at a bar (the pre-lube), then runs around following arrows, checks, and other mysterious marks, sometimes stopping to enjoy an adult beverage, in an attempt to find a different bar (the on-in). The hare (the person who sets the trail) will transport your bag with your nice, clean, non-sweaty clothes from the pre-lube to the on-in. At the on-in, the hare has arranged for a good drink deal and food (often pizza). You pay the hare $20 hash cash in order to enjoy said food and drink and relax with your new friends. Do this enough and you'll get a fun name.
