Santarchy is coming!
It seems like every year that Santarchy rolls around when I’m out of town, but not this year! On December 9th at 10:30am a huge crowd of drunken, surly santas will storm Fisherman’s Wharf and wander anarchically from there across the city, ruining both their spiffy red jackets and the memories of any children who happen to see them.
You, too, can join in the inebriated, Kris-Kringled chaos as this event is open to all Santas (and elves and reindeer). I’m going to try my damndest to take part in it this year, but what about the rest of you?
Their website recommends bringing the following items: An unmarked drinking vessel (paper bag/camelbak) to supplement bar drinks; CASH for drinks and tips; TIP YOUR BARTENDERS! Santa tips well; A Santa suit held together with zip ties and/or covered in last year’s beverages and bodily fluids; Santafication tools (to make others into Santas); Bring toys/gifts (Naughty AND Nice!); Mistletoe; *Lube and condoms (elf size, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing); Bribes; *=Comfortable shoes – because Rudolph got drunk again and can’t cart your sorry ass around; Warm Clothes – Santa goes all night long!
