sounds like a pretty ordinary night to me.

So TFA is mainly concerned about poor tipping and the lack of ability from the bartender to ensure that bills get paid?
 
2013-12-15 04:48:35 AM
I've seen NY SantaCon, and while there's an element of hilarity to it, she's not wrong. OTOH, she's never tended bar for a Fark party, so like Jon Snow, she knows nothing.

/also, she couldn't find a better picture of herself to submit? No, not the Santa suited girls in the article's pic.

I guess the dipshiats that don't tip well on other normal volume days get a free pass? This is a very dipshiatty article. Waaah, drunk Santa is here one day out of the year annoying me. Boooooo hoooooo. Take that day off. Oh wait.

Starting at 10am?
Look, either you're too late to get your day started right, or conversely if you have no employment to go to, you're getting up too damn early.

Saw these people all over Manhattan yesterday. None were overly drunk.

You know that Google personalizes searchers based on your past search history, right? I'm just mentioning that, because when I tried that GIS search all I got was some fully-dressed Con costumers and some of-age stripper types.

You might want to clear your cache and delete that folder before the knock at the door comes...

I had exactly the same thoughts.
 
2013-12-15 07:52:55 AM
Maybe it was the snow, but the thrill of staggering around in jeans with a cheap red Santa-like fleece jacket seems to be getting a bit stale. In years past, as they filed past me PRE-ALCOHOL, there seemed to be some joy in their step - sort of jaunty. It seemed like there was more effort with the costumes, too.  This year, still pre-alcohol, they all seemed like they were trudging toward an obligation.  Maybe it was the weather, but I predict this meme and this event fading quickly in the next few seasons.  They started in my neighborhood this year and ... I'm glad it wasn't as raucous, but it seemed kind of like they were trying to imitate - or at least live up to - stories of past SantaCons. Derivative.

Though I do have to say, Megyn would have loved it. SantaCon was definitely WHITE.

In Portland, there's now several splinter SantaCons, along with a commercial pay-to-play version.

It's become just another expected part of commercial Christmas, like the lighting of the tree or Black Friday.

Tweeeeeet!!! Violation of Fark rule:

"Calling out of other Farkers (in headlines): As odd as this may sound, not everyone wants attention on Fark. Specifically mentioning a fellow Farker in a headline or post (where the named Farker isn't participating) generates attention to a Farker who didn't intend it. This is not welcome on this site. If you have something to say to a particular Farker (and it isn't abusive), check their profile for an email address and go directly to the source. Comments and headlines about specific Farkers will likely be deleted, as not everyone needs or wants to see their name in bright lights, and most often, the attention is undesired. "

Just sayin'.

I've attended Santarchy in Detroit for a number of years. The only way one will get that many white people in a crap section of Detroit is with booze.

The men all dress as santa and most of the women dress as slutty Mrs. Clause or slutty elves.

Last year, I dressed as a gorilla and was warm, unlike the slutty elves.

2 PM yesterday at the Trader Joe's near Union Square. I walk in and hear the manager telling the security guy to watch out for drunken Santas coming in with open containers. I say, "Are they drunk already? What time did they start?" She says, "Probably about 9 or 10 AM."

Ah, youth. Or perhaps, ah, stupidity.

I was there. No alcoholic beverages allowed on Metro North trains Saturday and Sunday. On the train from Beacon,NY to Grand Central Terminal, the santas and elves and penguins were quiet and well behaved. On arrival in Manhattan, the station was swarming with law enforcement. After they hit the streets, just hooting and hollering. The lower eastside bars were packed. By 1PM, puddles of vomit were increasingly more noticeable. She is wrong in one detail, few of them made it above Fourteenth Street.  There were long lines at the popular gin mills. Many bars had security at their doors turning away drunks, unusual only because it was still before noon.  The subway ticket machines stop taking paper money after they reach capacity. Long lines of frustrated drunks.

That's because elves have slower development cycles and long lives. Most don't reach maturity until they're 80.

Santacon people annoy the shiat out of me when there's just five of them.  I can't imagine going to a bar full of them.  People my age are supposed to do it, but I really just don't get it.  The people who do it are usually the worst, most loudly annoying kind of drunks.  I've seen friends do it and they stick out like a sore thumb because they aren't being loud and attention craving

My mates and I have been going out on the Saturday before Xmas (day was not so set in the first few years) dressed as Santas.

'Santa Rampage' had a single didgit number until a few years ago when someone put it on social networks, I rocked up at the first pub expecting my 10ish mates and found a pub packed with approaching 100 peeps dressed in red.

The main pedestrian shopping mail in my town/city has a giant santa on its balcony ~ 100 santas on their knees bowing is great fun.

Very much looking fwd too Saturday ;D
