Hitchin’ Post Readies For V-Day

Item: Hitched in a hurry: Hitching Post sees lovers of all types on Valentine’s Day/Tom Hasslinger, CDA Press

More Info: The chapel has hitched young, old, fertile, sterile, skinny and pregnant, vacationers watery-eyed from cocktails, weekenders from Washington, Montana and California; elderly couples racing against the clock and soldiers trying to beat deployment — 15 minutes at a time. There is the couple who met in high school, ones on the Internet, ones who met 50 years ago, and some who met yesterday. Saturday, Valentine’s Day, will see them all. The reservation list is full. The changing rooms, the two bedrooms in the back, will be converted to chapels all their own.

Question: Were you married at the Hitchin’ Post? Are do you know anyone who was married at the Hitchin’ Post?
