Rad Hacks Beyond Butter Dome

Yes. I went there with that headline.

Darigold, local farmers of all things dairy, has commissioned renown butter sculptor Linda Christensen to carve a rendering of what the new basketball/hockey arena may look like. Christensen used a 110-pound block of Darigold butter to create the Butter Dome.

If you’re in downtown Seattle this afternoon, see the sculpture at Elysian Brewery in SoDo today from 4:30 to 6pm (perfect timing for the Sounders game).

The sculpture is a fun way to celebrate the recent approval of the new arena in Seattle, but also an opportunity for Darigold to promote its “Better Butter Better” contest. One lucky winner will be immortalized in a life-size butter bust to be featured on Darigold billboards. Christensen, whose accolades include carving likenesses of Minnesota State Fair dairy princesses in butter and the creation of the white chocolate and bacon bust of Conan O’Brien, will carve the bust of the Better Butter Better contest.

If you are having trouble figuring out what to get your significant other this holiday season, I think Darigold has solved your problem. Enter the contest here, and you could win the gift that keeps on giving.
