Getting On With The HoHoHo

It's Santa con 2010.
The annual Santa flash mob
Bar crawl through San Francisco.
Yes, there are some rules...

Lowdown for the HOdown!

Santa kicks off at 12:30pm Saturday 12/4 at SF Civic Center. See below for full schedule and options from the East, North, and South.  But FIRST check out this mini-survival guide…
While SOME naughty is nice, don’t be an asshole!
  • No vandalism, violence, theft or other criminal behavior…Santa is about spreading joy, not needing bail.
  • Santa’s Little Douchebag Contingent is not welcome at our reindeer games
  • Santas look out for each other…naughty of the NOT nice variety is not tolerated!
Be NICE to kids!
Be AWESOME to bar staff!
  • Pay with cash… it gets chaotic when Santa comes to town
  • Tip well…Santa wants to be welcome in years to come
  • Bring ID…Santa is of legal drinking age
Be SAFE and prepared!
  • Don’t BE that Santa…don’t get SO jolly that you need babysitting
  • Buddy up…we’re still in a city
  • Dress for the occasion and weather…costume + comfy shoes + layers + umbrella = Happy Santa. No whining!
  • Expect to walk…a lot (see above re: comfy shoes)
  • Take public transportation…Muni and BART are your friend
  • Sing…SF Santacon has its own Songbook that includes classic, kid-friendly carols AND your raunchy favorites (download and print the pdfor word doc. Prints on only 3 pieces of paper (double-sided)!
  • YOU hold the reins to Santa’s sleighride! Create your own itinerary from the map and the Santa-primed bars listed below
  • If it’s too crowded and SANTA NEEDS A DRINK, move along.Follow and tweet back to report action at these and other Santa-friendly bars you may find (@sfsanta and #sfsanta)
  • Leave no trace…put trash/recycle into cans—clean up after your reindeer!
  • I think it's pretty self explanatory...
  • Cheers!
