[VIDEO] Learn All About Brooklyn's "Idiotarod", a Boozy Costumed Shopping Cart Race

"Maker-ism" is the idea that you can make your entertainment rather than buy it. Every winter, this group of participatory art enthusiasts race their self-designed and intricately decorated grocery carts through the streets of Brooklyn, creating artistic camaraderie through competition.
