There’s a feeling of lots of unexpected surprise and delight going on right now, what with all the uncertainties of working at home, playing online, random requirements for testing, the ludicrous and exploitative World Cup, no bars, club Liangma freezing its ass off and a nash-hash bag o’goodies full of other distractions.

As we know as (as we know) the most human-rights-friendly country in the world today is hosting that very fancy football tournament, taking place smack dab in the middle of the European season; no idea why that is or how it might be slightly sub-optimal. Accordingly, since we all like a good watch and the chance to offer unheard criticisms, BJH3 Full Moon Hash is inviting you to watch some of the vast range of attractive spectacles with us.

While Qatar might not be fans of beer, at least officially or in public, BJH3 certainly is. So, hash with us in the evening and then stay up until the wee small morning hours to watch US vs. UK, a match in which both sides can lose. Attendance for that self-mutilation part is limited; only ten masochists can be accepted, so sign up quick.

Your hares have arranged a nonsense running through Beijing’s inner suburbs; this time we’ll start at a central-ish location so convenient for many.

Who?; your hare team and principal perpetrators of this unusual event are;

  • Walking hares are Socratease and someone else
  • Running hare team; unknown and likely to be A Prominent Runner but we’ll victimise someone, as usual for FMH attendees, on the spot
  • Beer bitch; no, this isn’t the boxer

What?; it’s an A-to-B hash, and is dog-friendly but not kid-friendly

Where?; join the busy throng of safe pedestrians at the outside of Liangmaqiao subqway exit ‘D’, under the dark skies of a more-or-less entirely-opposite-to-Full Moon. Just for a change.

When?; Friday 25 Movember 2022, gather at 9:00pm and the pack’s away a bit later, or thereabouts. It’s not like we’re organised

Hash cash:

Run, circle, etc; 30rmb alone

Restaurant;there isn’t one. They are closed. On Paddy’s, maybe, but it doesn’t feel like there’s much of a chance there, to be sure….

As usual, this is an adult activity in which we behave like children so expect to see nonsense, licentiousness, a modest level of drunkenness and considerable rude behaviour going on. And partial nudity. Don’t be offended; it’s jocular, we’re always like that and if you’re here you’re doing it too. For all of those reasons this isn’t a kid-friendly activity so – unless you’re table 1 – best stay home. More regular members of society are of course very welcome and can of course take part, but please be polite, be tolerant, don’t be purposefully rude and remember that if you’re running there’s no winner. Oh, and you’ll need to bring a green jiankangbao with a sufficiently-recent hesuan or we’ll be all huffy. And a mask.
