art shanties on medicine lake

happy thursday people!

this past weekend, we set off on an icy adventure and visited the art shanties on medicine lake. it was like a circus + eskimo renaissance fair.

in other words: awesome. 

there was an ice bike race

the BF looking totally normal.
then again, there appears to be a dude holding a purse with legs in the background,
so maybe we just blended right in.

and crazy people dressed up like goats

oh wait, that's us.




naturally i was enamored with the letterpress shanty; the shanty run by the MCBA. it publishes a daily newspaper during weekends, using hand-set type and a hand-pulled press.

so cool!

we had a lot of fun, and the roommate even got some attitude from a peasant carrying a box of donuts. nothing tops the day off like a little bit of donut-induced attitude.

people in minneapolis: go! it's fun!
