On 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).
As 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
