Thank you to all Santas, Elves, Reindeer, Robots, Pirates, Bananas and Ho’s! + the 120+ Santas that danced to Michel Jackson at Ducketts! (I know there is video of this). This one will go down in the books. Not sure the exact number of Santas, but feel its safe to say over 1000 of us took over NoPo!

+++ Did anyone notice the lack of presence of the Portland Police Department as well as any news crews? Ho! Ho! Ho?

On a sour note… if you were the Santas that tried to duck out on a large bill at Lovely Hula Hands…. we are looking for you. We work hard to not only organize these events but try hard to create relationships with the communities and businesses we have events in and around. You are the reason the downtown bars do not want us there any more. You are the kind of people that give our events a bad name. There are a few very angry Santas that would like to have a word with you.

Please tag them with ‘NoPdxAnticon’ so we can see the fun!

Hours Away Santa

Posted in NoPdxAnticon with tags , on December 5, 2009 by nopdxanticon

Please remember that if you are riding the max you will need to buy a ticket. Day tickets are $4.75 which I think will get you on the bus system also is a great investment for the day.

Don’t be a douche and get caught with out one…. think of the kids that may be watching Santa get thrown off and then ticked (it was $94) for fare evasion.

Please only cross the Max line at designated areas…. again, kids don’t need to see a Santa getting hit by a Max.

Lets have some fun today!

The Maps Santas!

Posted in NoPdxAnticon on December 1, 2009 by nopdxanticon


5 Different Maps for all you Santa’s wanting to be in the know…. these will not be printed out for you!

Dive Bar Route
Lombard Route
Tavern Route
Beer Route
Lounge Route

There you have it. If you see this Santa or any other one, why don’t you buy him or her a beer or two!

All bars (but one) have been warned of the sea of red coming their way.

Things I heard from the Bar Tenders.
“Last year’s crawl was by far the best and classiest crawl we have had here”
“Last year Santas were chill. You all are welcome here anytime”
“I have to get on your mailing list”
“There is no way you are getting that many Santas in here, but you can try”
“Can you ask the Santas not to puke in my bushes this year like he/she did last year?”
“What do you call the girl Santas”. “Ho’s?”. “Ya, I’m looking forward to them again”

“Can you remind the Santas to pay with cash?”
