(Newser) – Those stranded in Brooklyn over the weekend had the option to build an igloo—or stay in a pre-built model for just $200 per night. Patrick Horton and some friends built an igloo in his backyard, then decided to list the chilly abode as a "Boutique Winter Igloo for two" on Airbnb, reports Consumerist. "Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays the Snowpocalypse of 2016's most desirable getaway," the listing read. Airbnb quickly removed it, citing a lack of "running water, electricity, and a roof that doesn't melt." But Horton has other options. "I think we'll try to put it on Craigslist," he tells the New York Daily News. "We might even offer a Tinder special. Maybe throw in some Usher (background music) and a bottle of wine."
