Watertown foam party makes New York Times magazine

Alec Soth’s photos capture the weird, statue-like beauty of a foam party frozen in time.

Alec Soth’s brilliant photo essay from the “foam parties” at the Crazy Legs Saloon in Watertown made the New York Times Magazine recently.  Even more fantastic is the audio slide show, which you can check out here.

Soth recounts how bar manager Mike L’Huillier created his own foam machine, using “a barrel from Slack Chemical, a wet-dry vacuum, a garden hose and plenty of dish soap.”

    The Crazy Legs Saloon should be renamed the Crazy People Saloon.
