Well, I figured it out! Turns out that I was playing with open directory recently (not successfully) because I wanted to have a networked home drive between my mbp and my mini. So during that process os x uses LDAP for looking up users. After I decided to give up on open directory, i just turned the service off. I guess the machines were still trying to authenticate against a LDAP service. So what I had to do:
open directory utility (/System/Library/CoreServices/Directory Utility.app)
look at the list of sources there. If you aren't using open directory, uncheck LDAP.
*I disabled LDAP on both the client and the server, its possible you only need to do it on the server.
restart ARDAgent (ps aux | grep ARD find the procid, then kill <procid>).
viola! working screen sharing again.
