City Paper is not for tourists
I wrote this week that Hacky Sack is dead in DC.
I was never into beanbag kicking, so I don’t know when it died. I just know that I used to see tie-dyed and ponytailed males all circled up, legs flailing, all the time, all over town.
At some point when I wasn’t paying attention, the game went away. And I mean, really went away. I haven’t seen a kicking circle in forever.
Come to think of it, I haven’t seen groups of tie-dyed, ponytailed males hanging out in forever, either.
So what the hell happened to Hacky Sack? And will the circles stay all broken?
