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.
Here is one trail that COVID can’t fuck up! It’s time for Voodoo’s anal celebration of all things virtual including gaming, learning, meetings, sex, and (last, but not least) reality. Join your hare at 7:00PM CST on Zoom (link below) for a Virtual Check Trail to keep you entertained (or at least more entertained than your fourth re-watching of the office). Each check on trail will be a mini-competition where you can earn a point. The hasher with the most points at the end of trail will be awarded a $25 donation to the bartender/restaurant GoFundMe/Venmo/whatever fund of their choice. Even though this trail consists of virtual checks, don’t expect to be sitting on your ass the entire time, as several of the checks will require you to walk/run/walk your dog into the real world! May the best (or maybe, I don’t know, not the worst?) hasher win!
Happy Easter y’all. Anyone else feel like they’ve been stuck behind a rock?
This week will be a geo-hashing trail! I have done the Lord’s bidding and hidden eggs around town. When trail goes live at 6pm, I will send out the coordinates of the eggs. Head to the closest egg location and start searching. When you find an egg, post a selfie with it, and the your location on the fb trail post. Found locations will be marked off as people post. Be sure to also use your favorite gps app to show us your route.
Trail will be finding 3. If you’re pairing up with someone you can share the eggs you find. If you come across other hashers on trail please leave room for Jesus (stay at least half a crucifix away), and don’t r*n in groups of more than two, unless you want to meet your maker.

Theme: Voodoo’s First (dear-god-I-hope-this-doesn’t-turn-into-anal) Virtual Trail
Virtual hare: The Iceman Thumbeth
Prelube and On-after: Your house. If you need to restock, consider supporting local businesses by picking up to-go beers from places like Brieux Carré Brewing Co (pre-order at https://brieuxcarre.square.site/) or 504 Craft Beer (3939 Tulane Ave).
Keeping the social in social distancing, Voodoo is going virtual with trail this week. Unlike last week, we will all run at the same time but in different locations. Here’s how it works:
At 7 PM on Thursday, March 26, we’ll have a video blessing of the hares/chalk talk with Facebook Live. Come to the Voodoo Facebook group to catch it.
After chalk talk, everyone will head out on a route of their own design. Start where you want, beer near where you want, end where you want, and post photos, videos, and updates along the way. If you run with others, keep it to three or less people.
THIS IS IMPORTANT! Track your run with a route-tracker app (e.g. Map My Run or Run Keeper). Post a screenshot of your route when you’re finished. Whoever draws the best, most creative picture with their route wins. If it’s really good, Iceman will print it on a t-shirt, so plan your route in advance.
A sure-to-be-a-shit-show virtual circle will be held at 9 PM on Zoom. Simply click this link to join: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/608324938 (audio and/or video). We have to be done by 9:40 because after that the free version of Zoom kicks us off.
Lastly, just because it’s a virtual trail doesn’t mean we can’t have visitors! We’d love it if our friends around the country/world would join us. Just run a route wherever you are and join us in the Zoom circle.
Grab your toilet paper and wash your hands because it’s another filthy Voodoo trail. If you’ve ever had the hash crud, Death type-2, Corona with lime, or gotten stuck in a Chinese finger trap then Doctor Steve has the cure! (I’m not even licensed to be Dell tech support let alone give legit medical advice but I will get you real drunk.)
