I have fashioned myself as a bit of a Summer Activities Director among my friends, constantly suggesting ridiculous things to do that I hope are fun. Sometimes I miss, but yesterday, we all won! We headed over to The Putting Lot, which is a “miniature golf course that examines the relevance of empty space in the city”.
Basically, it is literally a vacant lot where nine artists have put together some amazingly cool and yet maybe not so physics-tested miniature golf holes. I was afraid, given their “catchphrase”, that it would be overly pretentious and stuffy, but instead it was just straight up mini golf, with other groups, kids, and everyone having fun.
It was $5 to play or $3 if, after you played, you made some “seed bombs”. Seed bombs are little balls made of seeds and dirt and fertilizer, and the idea is that the balls can be thrown in empty vacant space to create flowers where there were none. Guerrilla gardening, they call it.
Ok, if that was too much for you, I understand, but jump to see our pictures from it, and seriously, if you live off the L, you must try this. It was a blast.
