We are getting close to Santacon 2008. This picture is from 2005 and Jason sent this information about it:

This shot was taken during Santacon, in 2005, outside of Mary's club downtown. The bike cops followed us around all day just to make sure Santa didn't get too crazy. They were actually pretty cool about the whole thing, despite getting harassed all day by drunk people in Santa suits.

You can view a lot of great Santacon pictures and information from last year here. This message was sent from Drunken Rampage about the upcoming Satacon on December 6:

December is almost upon us, so time to start the early prep for Santa. Wash out those windex bottles (it takes about four weeks to rinse the taste out, so start ASAP), order anything you need shipped to you, break in those boots, get that STD test out of the way and brace yourselves. It's going to be a bumpy year.

December 6, last west side stop of the MAX blue line. Drunken Rampage folk are working on other projects at the moment, so we are not as up to date on the details of Santacon as usual (or if we are, we are sneaky, sneaky people who ain't talking). But noon, on the 6th, bring cash, yada yada yada…just rember: Dress. Like. Santa. Or Santa will piss on your costume.
