Santacon 2015

Santacon-2015-Buffalo-NY-3On Saturday, December 12, over 1000 Santas, elves, reindeer and other holiday characters will take to the streets of Buffalo in search of Christmas cheer. The merry mayhem starts on Saturday afternoon, with a 1:30pm registration at D’Arcy McGees. From there, Santas and their helpers will be heading to SoHo and The Lodge (from 2pm to 4pm).

331049_134106800027700_2040673359_oAs the day progresses, and the bar crawlers loosen up, the roaming party shifts to Tap House, Bottoms Up, 67 West and Indulge (4pm to 7pm). By that time there should be some well-lubricated partiers flailing about Chippewa, which is essentially the purpose of the event.

Actually, there’s another purpose that is a side benefit to Santacon. Here’s the lowdown:

North Pole Stroll, Santa’s bar crawl

Provide a new toy donation for the Boys & Girls Club of Black Rock and receive a special wrist band for (1) FREE drink at EACH bar! 

Registration fee includes free entrance, drink & food specials and a special treat from Labatt Blue 

Participating Bars: D’arcy McGees, 67 West, Bottoms Up, Soho, The Lodge, Indulge

Admission is $10 on Saturday at the door or pre-register HERE. Also see Facebook.

Sponsored by Labatt and Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire

    Is it possible to do this without offending someone?

    give it enough time someone will be offended. maybe the fact that Santa Claus is based on St Nicholas from Turkey and therefore could be construed as ‘cultural appropriation’ and should be banned. that should jump start the process…

    OldFirstWard as an avid annual celebrator of Father Christmascon, I am irate that Santacon exists and dares to infringe on my own celebration, also occurring today from 1:30-7 PM in the environs of Chippewa.  The FC/Santa schism was bloody and will unfortunately become bloodier still as the years progress (and as today alone progresses, I’m sure).  On the bright side, there won’t be much need for red dye for Father Christmas’ future attire.

    those schisms tend to get messy. did you write 95 theses airing your grievances and nail them to a church door somewhere?

    Ran into this on Chippewa. Looked like a blast. Well-lubed is right.
