SantaCon 2010 Rocked!

I have finally recovered from the 2010 version of SantaCon…a fine time was had by all…especially The Fox…let’s see, what happened you say…well terrible carolling, fun and frolicking in the snow, discussions of how to best use LED lighting in one’s costume…all sorts of things…but I do know that I learned a whole hell of a lot…

  1. Make sure that the establishment that you are going to knows that you and 100 Santas are coming. I watched many a bartender start swearing at their managers for the typical ineptness of managers. And getting these people to give you a drink special was more work than it should have been! Seriously people, really? I have 100 people in Santa suits that want to spend money in your establishment. You are going to make up for the price in volume you ding dongs and you just might have some of these people come back because you were just so darn nice! This isn’t rocket science here. Give a Santa a fuckin’ drink already!
  2. Know where the next bar is…do I really need to elaborate?
  3. Twittering is hard while drunk…remembering to Twitter while drunk is hard…
  4. 5″ patent leather boots do NOT work for SantaCon no matter how cute they look with your slutty Santa outfit.
  5. With a brass band is always the way to make an entrance…I love the Brass Messengers!

We had fun, we learned a little something, we thought up some improvements for next year…think VIP party bus for the ultimate fancy schmancy SantaCon experience…what do people think of that? More pictures to come…I am fighting with my supposedly “smart” phone…recalcitrant is more like it…
