The Iditarod is the famous long-distance race in which yelping dogs tow a sled across Alaska. This 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. Tonic hosts a free after-party at 6pm.
