Art-A-Whirl got off to a slow start on Saturday, with widespread showers keeping people packed inside brew halls instead or the usual art & music crawl through the streets of NE Minneapolis. Dangerous Man moved their Beard and Moustache contest inside, and many of the indoor art studios provided rain shelter as well. By late afternoon the rain lightened up and people were free to enjoy the festivities in relative comfort.
