Santacon Chicago 2009: Starts at Congress Plaza (Sat. 12/5)

Chicago reinvents the bar crawl once again; this time with a lot of holiday cheer!  Santacon is part parade, part bar crawl.  Anyone can attend, as long as you’re willing to get decked out in full Santa gear (or elf, reindeer, Mrs. Clause, you get the gist.) The Ho-Ho-Ho-ers will meet at Congress Plaza Hotel Bar at 1pm and wind around town, stopping at different bars downtown and heading north.  No cover or bar specials; just the opportunity to become a Christmas spectacle in Chicago. Participators are encouraged to appease children and tourists; if you’re wearing the suit, you have the responisibility of spreading Christmas cheer! So bring candy canes and wave to kids; its all part of the fun. Santacon’s route can be found on their website, as well as guidelines and suggestions to making your Christmas crawl a safe and enjoyable experience.

Congress Plaza Chicago, IL 60605
