Photos from the 2017 Hash Bash

By  |  2 Comments

Went to Saturday’s Hash Bash on the Diag in Ann Arbor. It was my third Bash; for once, I got up close enough to get photos of some of the speakers. I also saw the dudebro-iest dudebro ever, but for some reason didn’t get a picture. There are always some real characters at the Hash Bash, along with the usual mix of activists, patients, working class folks, hippies and, yes, even a few college kids. And lots and lots of weed.
