So no one wanted to hare yesterday, so we met anyway for a non-hash event, a nighttime stroll through Tucson’s Winterhaven neighborhood, where every December residents put on the Griswold dog with the Festival of Lights. Naturally this being a non-hashing event organized by yours truly, Flying Booger, we were there a week early before all the houses were decorated, and our on-after pub’s kitchen was closed, and everyone went home early.
The pack was quite small: Flying Booger and Pick’n'Flick with an as-yet-unnamed auxiliary dachshund, Yoda and Appendage, and Zorro. Joining Yoda and Appendage were two NHN virgin couples from Green Valley. As mentioned many of the homes in Winterhaven were still undecorated, but more than a dozen were, and we had a good time looking at them. By this time next week all the homes will be lit up like Hong Kong whorehouses and the streets will be packed with rubbernecking civilians, so maybe we picked a good time to walk through after all.
The good part is we didn’t leave any flour on the ground, because all the other hashes in Tucson are planning trails through Winterhaven soon!
If you’d like to see more Winterhaven photos from last night, they’re on my other blog. Happy holidays, hashers!
