if you've ever tried to imagine a flash mob of people dressed like santa and drinking heavily, look no further. this year's santacon, or santarchy to veterans of the mob, was my first. it was freezing cold, and i had no santa suit. i did have a couple of well-decked-out friends to guide me, though. ultimately, fun times. i mean, what's not to love about a massive hoarde of drunk grown ups running around the city dressed like old saint nick?
