The Idiotarod is an annual event that takes place in the middle of winter in Brooklyn in which dozens of teams compete in a mock-race with homemade shopping cart "sleds", themed costumes, and of course, booze. Learn all about it in this video from our friends at BRIC TV.
"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.
