The Short List: Idiotarod Edition

And God spoke unto Moses to gather the tribes of Israel and affix to themselves costumed images of their Creator; and to each tribe there shall be one shopping cart by which the tribe is to push itself through the desert of Sinai for many hours before making it into the promised land of Brooklyn; and God shall reward the Israelites with beer and manna on every stop of the journey and protect those tribes from the wrath of Sabotage; [Exodus 62:1-3]

And it came to pass that the 2010 Idiotarod, the third leg of the hipster triathalon, will commence at 9:00 AM
on Saturday, January 30, 2010 AD. We still don't know the starting point nor do we know exactly who is running this thing or how many people will show up in 26 degree weather (don't forget your long johns everyone!), but it should be interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing Team Brill and Team Tauber duke it out. The former teammates are on competing factions and both have creative ideas about how to proceed.
Let's take a look at Idiotarod through the years...





Meanwhile, if you're not Idiotaroded out, Steve Witt is having a book reading at Le Caire 189 E. 3rd on Sunday in the East Village at 4 PM. Check that out too. Let the race begin!
