The 2006 South Florida Hash Award ceremony was held on Saturday night.
Me and C. stopped to pick up PH, CC and SF on the way down to Miami. We had
all opted to skip the run portion of the day's events, and just do the
food and the awards.
We finally got to south Miami, and headed east on the
Rickenbacker Causeway to the old Marine Stadium. There was nobody in sight,
but we did find a parking lot of hash vehicles, and a cooler full of beer that
someone had thoughtfully left behind. We hung around for a while, more lost
hashers appeared, and eventually SotB appeared to lead all of us to Jimbos.
Jimbos was a colorful place near the water. I don't know the story behind it,
but it has the look of one of those places that was grandfathered in, like
the Biscayne Bay stilt houses. A location like that should really be a 30
story condominium instead of a simple place where you can go to get a beer and
There were lots of hashers we hadn't seen for a while, but the most shocking
of all was... Blowhoe. He was in town for a while. He moved from Hollywood,
Fl a couple years ago, to Hollywood, CA. He is now appearing as a rapping
roller skater. Check him out at
www.rollerrapper.com. We took lots of photos for his site.
Then it was time for the group shot. Someone, possibly Jimbo himself,
climbed up on a table to get the shot. The crowd was encouraging for a while,
but began to mock him when he took way too long to get it done.
One the way out I took a moment to appreciate this monument to the VW bug.
Back at the parking lot, the circle commenced. We matched up Blowhoe's
girl-of-the-day with another young hasher. They did a co-down-down, but
despite plenty of encouragement, would not fight or kiss.
There were plenty of other down-downs as well, although S&Minator was not able
to stay awake for them. Horshack did have a nice drinking vessel, and Itsy
pants were just a masculine as ever. Which is to say, not at all.
Then the party moved inside for food, beer, and the awards ceremony. I stopped
taking pictures around then. There were twenty awards given out, for all kinds
of things, like Rookie of the Year (DBK), and Best Ranger (CA). It was a
grand time. There were some skits, too, including one with me in the cast.
Fortunately you don't have to see me in a bikini top, but check out P-rick and
Yeast. Then they ran us out of there for the Latin Disco Party.
