SantaCon has come to be an annual nation-wide December pub crawl with participants – men and women – dressed up in full Santa costume. However, the event has become notoriously rowdy in recent years, especially in New York City. Apparently the bad behavior was at its worst at an East Village bar that says a group of “a hundred” partying Santas looted all their booze, smashed bottles, and generally wrecked the place. They estimated $5,000 worth of damage was done. No arrests were made, although over the course of the day in the city NYPD issued over 100 summonses for disorderly conduct.
