SantaCon 2013 This Saturday

The annual SantaCon Pub Crawl is this Saturday here on the Island.

Here's the schedule from the Facebook page.

6:00-7:30 Franklins Pub
7:30-9:00 Llywelyn's Pub
9:00-10:30 1860 Saloon 1860 S. 9th Street
10:30-Close- Mollys In Soulard, 816 Geyer Ave
Plus, food specials for anyone dressed as Santa at the delicious EPIC Pizza & Subs, 1711 S 9th St

The lovely ladies behind the event have been posting the specials to the Facebook page. Here's what we have so far:

Epic: 2 for $5 (Pick any 2: One-topping slice, garlic knots, draft beer)
Franklin's: $3 wells, $2.50 Domestic drafts and bottles, $3 "Santa Shot"
Llywelyn's: $2.50 Kraftig or PBR bottles, $2 mystery shots

SantaCons are held in countries around the world. The New York City one has been in the news lately because pretty much everyone not planning to dress like a Santa for it hates it. I would imagine the New York one must be a lot like the Angels' Arms Bar Bounce that goes on here.

If you're planning to get dress up in your Christmas Pub Crawl best on Saturday, you are likely not an asshole. If you are an asshole or a complete douchebag, I would advise staying away. I hear the SantaCon St. Louis ladies are basically ninjas.
