The hash is a drinking club with a running problem, so feel free to drink and run. However, we do not support drinking and driving so have a designated driver, call a cab or plan ahead to get home safely if you have been drinking - there are more fun ways to get to play with handcuffs. We hash EVERY Thursday night at 7, rain or shine, CST or CDT. So bring a dollar and a six-pack of beer, and join us for the fun!
Make sure to also bring a whistle, a flashlight (it helps), and a sense of humor. For slightly more info, read about the VooDoo.
You wanna hear somethin’ crazy? Patrick Gayze has a new baby! His (alleged) wife carried a watermelon for nine months and now (Just) Reese Eva is here. So, this week’s trail is a hashy baby shower honoring one of our favorite hashers (and her dad). If you’d like to get a gift to celebrate, the registry is linked below. Gifts can be shipped directly through the registry or brought to trail where we will quarantine them for a few days before delivering to Gayze (#covidsafety). If registries aren’t for you, we will also have some fun things planned on trail.
And for those of us feeling a little self-conscious about running after a few months in quarantine, remember the wise words of Penny the Rockette: “God wouldn’t have given you maracas if he didn’t want you to shake them!”

This week we’re exploring the streets and street art of Central City and the CBD. Central City and the CBD are both essential cultural icons of New Orleans. O.C. Haley Blvd, in the late 19th and 20th centuries, was a center of rapid commercial and cultural growth, and during the 1960s, Central City jump-started the Civil Rights Movement in New Orleans. In recent years, the CBD and Central City have seen a resurgence, memorialized and encapsulated through mural/street art. This trail will take you on a drunken, free-wheeling tour of some of New Orleans’ most iconic public art, so make sure you brush up on your local lore. (If you don’t feel comfortable coming to trail, Mr. hEd plans to post the google map, along with notes for each art stop, so you can do a self-guided tour if you so wish!)
Bring: $0 (trail is free until we can safely share ice, so bring your own cooler or thirst for warm beer); 6-pack (glass discouraged), whistle, flashlight/headlamp (no seriously bring a light, we cannot stress this enough)

Trail is A to A.
We’re so proud of you, Voodoo. Through 13 weeks of lock-down you have kept the spirit alive. You drew pictures with your solo trails. You hunted GPS coordinates. You ran miles in your houses. You joined Zoom circles from around the world. You became an example to other kennels grappling with how to hash safely in a pandemic. You did not miss a single Thursday.
This week we’re finally back to hashing in person. We are not out of the woods yet and so we will keep doing what we need to do to keep each other safe. We can use personal coolers and wear masks and stand a little bit farther apart in Circle because it means that we can be back together again, solving trail, drinking beer, singing songs, and making fun of each other.
