What do I need to know?

Costumes are required. Just a santa hat is not enough. The silliness is the point. A full Santa suit is the best costume, but we're open to others if they're creative. (Other santacons are santas-only. We're not.) We've seen lots of reindeer, Christmas trees, leg lamps, a few snowmen, and even a Hanukkah Harry.

You don't have to come for the whole thing, but it is fun to. It's really worth trying to be there for the group photo.

For the most part, the group sticks together. Listen for "Santas on the move!" as notice to head to the next place. (Hit the FB event for the schedule.)

Adults only. This is a bar crawl. If you're reading this now, go get your wallet and check that your ID hasn't expired.

Pace yourself. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Add in some extra glasses of water. Make sure to stop somewhere for food.

Cash is your friend. Gets you in and out from the bar faster.

Santa tips well.

Don't be a dink. Everyone's out to have a good time. If you're a bad drunk, Santa reserves the right to kick you out of the club.

Remember why we do this - Because it's fun. The holidays are a very stressful time, and they're very focused on kids and family. While that's fine and all, Santacon gives the adults a chance to do something fun and silly. So, come have a drink (or three) with us, make some friends, have some fun.

Take two asprin and drink two large glasses of water before you go to bed.
