SantaCon is Coming to Town (on Saturday)

SantaCon along Delancey St., December 2015

Mark your calendars – Saturday is the day to hunker down and maybe not hit your favorite local hangout. SantaCon is coming to town.

While the Lower East Side has been excluded from the official route in recent years, there remains plenty of spillover. (Exact start location is a secret until day of.) It begins at 10am, and organizers advise participants to “be merry, be safe, be responsible for your own actions, respect the city, don’t litter, don’t scare children, and listen to the cops.”

That type of disclaimer was no doubt influenced by the annual plague of bros that lay waste to neighborhoods across the city.

Also, bridge-and-tunnel folks on the Long Island Railroad, Metro North, and NJ Transit will face off against alcohol bans on those various modes of transportation.

And maybe think twice about hooking up in a Duane Reade window…?
