The Idiotarod is this Saturday and one of the starting points is India Street right here in good ol’ Greenpoint.
The Iditarod is the famous long-distance race in which yelping dogs tow a sled across Alaska. The IDIOTAROD is pretty much the same thing, except that instead of dogs, it’s people, instead of sleds, it’s shopping carts, and instead of Alaska it’s New York City.
The fifth annual event happens January 26, 2008. Teams of five will race for cash prizes and glory.
