New Yorkers got a hilarious dose of Portland’s twee mentality this past Thursday as the stars of IFC’s hit show Portlandia, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, took over the Museum of Natural History to celebrate their second season.

Guests were treated to a screening of two new episodes before heading upstairs to a room decorated in theme with the show. Congregating around a bar complete with a white deer head and jars of pickled items (a nod to the new season’s catchphrase ‘We can pickle that!’) were a number of the show’s guest stars like Jeff Goldblum and St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, along with plenty of SNLers including Lorne Michaels, Andy Samberg, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, and Jason Sudeikis.
