Santa Crunk at the Imperial

2004_12_15gunsanta.gifChristmas comes early if you’re in the festive mood, or really drunk. On Dec. 18, Santarchy comes to the Imperial Pub on Dundas St. just east of Yonge. The Imp will host a world-wide event called SantaCon. The irony-laden SantaCon is apparently an organization of debauched Claus lovers who get wrecked each year for reasons of holiday cheer.

Each December for the last 10 years Cacophonous Santas have been taking to the streets in major metropolitan areas and generating a bit of naughty Noël mayhem as part of the annual Santacon events. It all started back in 1994 when several dozen Cheap Suit Santas paid a visit to downtown San Francisco for a night of Kringle Kaos. Things have now reached Critical Xmas and these infamous Santacons are now held in many cities across the world each year.

If you can’t make it out to SantaCon, both EasterCon and Yom KippurCon are just around the corner.
