Annual Running of the Santas: Santacon

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Santa’s always had a reputation as a bit of a drunkard. Blame the harsh climate of the North Pole, or the VFW hall where mall’s do their Santa recruiting, but beneath those jolly layers of red velvet lives a man who just likes to have a good time. If you ever needed an excuse to dress up like an old fat man along with hundreds of your fellow compatriots, than Santacon is the holiday for you.

Even if you missed the 10am call time, these guys are hard to miss. There’s various start points all over the city, but you can also check the official Santacon Twitter to see where these folks in red will be converging.

The Rules are Simple:

'¢    Don’t Fuck With Kids
'¢    Don’t Fuck With Cops
'¢    Don’t Fuck With Security
'¢    Don’t Fuck With SANTA!

With that being said, go out there and spread cheer (not VD) as best as you can. Happy Holidays!

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
