After a long campaign that started way back in late summer last Sunday (December 6th) brought the Final of the ManoAlibi pub quiz. 10 teams qualified out of around 150 who participated throughout the series.

Despite missing some star team members (me) The Colonials manged a very creditable 5th place... not bad considering the questions etc are in Lithuanian (with English translations).

It is understood that MaryJamPole was in town searching for guidance to help her quest in Mafia Wars :) :)

Enjoy Christmas everyone & please do something with VH£ so that when I return in 18 months it'll still be here :) :) :)

Just a quick reminder about the VH3 Irish Breakfast at 12:00 at the Dubliner on Sunday, Oct 25th.

Can I suggest the opportunity is used to (again) discuss how VH3 is organised? I'm quite happy to keep the blog up to date and / or set up a facebook page and send emails out.... but seems daft to do this from the UK rather than locally :)

Just a quick reminder to all that the Dubliner Quiz is running again on Monday nights :)

ketvirtadienis, rugsėjo 17, 2009


Hi All,

Andy at the Dubliner asked that we mention that the Dubliner Quiz returns this coming Monday evening (September 21st).

Have fun if you go.... I won't coz I'm not back until October 5th :)

On, On

PS - While mentioning the Dubliner.... remember the IRISH BREAKFAST on the last Sunday in September :)

Below are details of Sunday's Hash.... it's in that nice bit of park / wood next to Akropolis.... so no map this week:) Everyone can find Akropolis!!

We are setting the trail with Roma in the Ozo park next to where I live. So it is in the direction of Akropolis: get to the large junction at Akropolis and turn to the right if you come from Kalvariju or Seamens Arena, or to the left if you come from the oposite direction, and go straight forward along Gelvonu st. until you see a mini Maxima on the right side, pass it and park at the parking lot in front of AUTOSERVISAS. Caution - don't go beyond the yellow kiosks on your left.
For those coming by bus No 53, 56, 75 (mini bus No 2 or private bus 62) bus stop 'Gelvonu' - meeting point a few meters ahead.

I think it should be clear, in case you need other directions, please, contact me 8 699 82 562



PS.... of course remember the car pool at bottom of Pilies... cars leave at 11:00. Be at Hash at 11:15 for 11:30 start.... 10 lts per adult to cover drinks etc etc

trečiadienis, rugsėjo 02, 2009

VH3 HASH NUMBER 333 September 6th

VH3 are 50% towards the dreaded 666 .... or if you are reading in Oz .... 999 ! Yes, it's Hash Number 333 and as promised Kiltman will set a Hash through, round, up and down Kalnu Park. The trail will pass some real spot on photo sites in Vilnius... the Bell Tower... and if no-one has ever see the view from the Hash view on Hill of 333 crosses (well, 3 crosses) then now is your chance.

There is a map attached showing the location..(actually I can't find the map... but it'll appear on the blog later:) ). but it's not really difficult to find... turn right at bottom of Pilies and after 300m where the road turns at 90 degrees go directly forward... might be better to park at the official parking at the 90 degree turn?

Meet at 11:15 for an 11:30 start.

Normal cost of 10 lts per adult to cover drinks etc. Kids free...
most of the trail is suitable for kids....

So see you there... remember 90% of VH3 will be walkers and if you get lost then call Kiltman on 8 653 10009.... but if you can't get 300m from the bottom of Pilies then...........

On, on and lunch will be back up in the Old Town at the Dubliner.... from around 13:15.

Over the summer a few galant members of Vilnius HHH (and assorted others) have gathered at ManoAlibi uder the name 'THE COLONIALS' to participate in the Tueday night Quiz. Starting at 19:00 ish the quiz is mostly attended by Lithuanians with the Colonials being the only English speakers... but the questions are repeated in English...

Unlike the Dubliner Quiz there is no bonus round and no plus / minus points depending on team size... resulting in some quite big teams (which has it's disadvantages as there ain't a lot of space!)

The Colonials do OK.... normally finishing in the top half of the 17 or so teams but we are gradually creeping upwards having finished 2nd last week...

Over a quarter year a first place finish gives a team 5 points, 2nd 4 points down to 5th 1 point. The top 8 over the quarter (Mondays & Tuesdays) go into the final....

Us Colonials only joined in about half way through but we have finished the quarter in 21st place out of over 100 teams...... not too bad....

If anyone is interested in joining The Colonials drop us a mail.... 'fraid it's not really possible for anyone 'just to turn up' due to space restrictions :)

You can

And the food is some of the best in Vilnius.... unusual & good value. The stuffed mushrooms are number 1 :)

Just a reminder about the Lithuanian Forum discussing all things Lithuanian.... including a section for VH3.

There have been some interesting discussions recently & I'm sure some of VH3 could make meaninnful contributions.... well maybe not :) :)


Mike & Barbara have agreed to host the next VH3 hash on SUNDAY AUGUST 23rd. Venue to be decided but it will be local to Vilnius.

Then the following Sunday (August 30th) we'll have our monthly IRISH BREAKFAST at the Dubliner at 12:00.

Dear Hashers,

This Sunday's hash will be near Liliana's summerhouse in Karaciunai (see the attached map), so that if it rains we would be able to hide under the roof.

How to get there:

Go straight Antakalnis street to Nemencines road past Plento Baras and continue further about 4 km until the road gets narrower (narrows to two lanes instead of four before a small, almost invisible river bridge), then after some another 900 metres turn right to Karaciunu street. Then go about 250 metres and turn right again before the gray fence (you will see several garbage bins on the right), go along the fence another 50 metres and park there in front of the wood.

Be there by 11:15. The start will be at 11:30. Cost is 10 lt for beers and drinks.

You may get there by bus 17 or 39. Hopefully our traditional car pool will be operating, so then if lifts are needed you could agree and meet at the bottom of Pilies before 11:00 (if you come there at 11:02 – you will not find anybody waiting there).

If lost, call Liliana (Last Virgin) at 861606577.

Lunch will be decided later on. Perhaps it will be at Caucasian Bar not far from the Karaciunai bus stop on Nemencines plentas.

On on

Hi All,

An early reminder of the monthly IRISH BREAKFAST at the DUBLINER PUB at 12:00 on SUNDAY 28th JUNE.

I (Kiltman) will try and send a reminder email out... since I got a lot of unjustified flak because no-one sent a reminder out in May :) :)

penktadienis, birželio 05, 2009



Rise from hibernation.

The Hash on June 14 will be held approximately 15-20 km away from Vilnius in the direction of Kaunas, near Stirniai, along the Saidės Creek (see the attached map). You may read more about the place in the website:

Hares will be Loreta and Liliana.

Perhaps we should recall our car pool tradition. This time let us meet at the parking in front of RIMI on Savanoriu at 10:45 on Sunday, 14 June.

Loreta’s mobile is: 8 679 98186

Liliana’s mobile: 8 616 06577.

We are looking forward to meet you all.

Well.... the promised location map will appear later coz the oringinal won't copy here for some reason :(

Yes.... it's almost the end of April (use your imagination).... so it's Irish Breakfast time...

Sunday April 26th
The Dubliner Pub

12:00 until............

antradienis, kovo 31, 2009


Hokay..... we've been talking about another tour to follow on from the successful Whisky Tour of 2008.... lets have a discussion & see who wants to go where & when...

Lithuania might be in the midst of a great big recession.... but unless the litas is devalued then it makes the UK a very cheap (ish) venue :)

Now Ryanair are flying to Liverpool.... so that suggests the English Lakes might be a good idea.... instead of a Whisky Tour we could have a CAMRA tour (CAMERA = Campaign for Real Ale)....


Join the discussion on the VH3 forum at:

pirmadienis, kovo 30, 2009



We have a forum site.... on .... hopefully we can use this area as a means of discussion... where is a good place for a Hash, suggest some social activities... complain, promote and so on.... go on, you know you want to :)

ketvirtadienis, kovo 26, 2009


Our next Irish Breakfast will be held at the Dubliner this coming Sunday........ confirming the time as 12:00 new time :)

One Hasher wrote this:-

However, why not book it for 11.30 as normal but warn people about the hour change. Otherwise, smarties will change their clocks and still turn up at 12.30 ( changed time ) rather than 11.30 ( pre-changed time ) ? You could say for example "11.30 new time" or "11.30 - that's after you've changed your clocks" or "12.30 - new time" ( whichever you want ).
And also warn them ( because some still get confused ( North American teachers particularly ) that the clocks move forward from 02.00 to become 03.00 ( and not the other way round! ).

Details of the HASH this Sunday below.... if a lift is needed be at bottom of Pymlio at 11:00. Usual 10 lts for drinks etc etc. Parking at the little Red Flag................

Someone has suggested we set up a FACEBOOK page for Vilnius HHH..... any thoughts on this? Kiltman is quite happy to set it up....

Also it's likely we'll have an AGM (Annual General Meeting) soon.... we haven't had one for sometime.... info to follow....

Also someone offered to set a trail on last Sunday in Feb (21st I think). Anyway that's normally IRISH BREAKFAST.... so the BREAKFAST can be delayed until after the Hash!!!!!

VH3 have stumbled across this forum for expats and those interested in all things Lithuania... it's in English... but we're sure there is something of interest to all.
