People who still use AOL dial up, people who paint with gravity, and people who let you hug a gator for 5 bucks

Welcome back everyone! You’ve found another episode of The Half Hour Happy Hour. This week we’ve got a lot of artsy things to talk about. The Sarasota Chalk Festival happened and inspired Jen to find some alternative art styles. She found a lady who paints with gravity, a tiger rug made of cigarettes, and even someone who paints with molotov cocktails. There’s a few other non-art topics sprinkled throughout, and we should get to em, so grab that beer and give a listen.
