Idiotarod Shopping Cart Race

Potential Benefit:

This year was the 15th annual Idiotarod race in NYC - a festival in which participants decorate shopping carts (with no unifying theme), and race them at a non-disclosed location.

Cool, where can I find pics and how to see the next one in person?

Such events are a good way to break up our normal routines/expectations of a place, but how can we make sure they don't go the way of Santacon in NYC too often - where the event just becomes an excuse for some people to become extra obnoxious? From what I've heard, the Idiotrod does encourage all members to be respectful of the neighborhoods they are in.
