SantaCon happens once a year in cities all around the world with Santas coming out in all manner of Santa Claus dress and celebrating the holidays in their own way...usually with a crazy-long barhop. This year's L.A. SantaCon kicked off on Saturday at Echo Park. It started at 1pm and promised to run through 2am. The Santas were going to tie one on in a major way: 11 hours of drinking and many stops. Since I'm a wussy Santa, I only stayed through the first two stops. Hey, the sleighs got a late start and I had places to be.
