December 4th is closer than you think…

Posted in NoPdxAnticon with tags , on November 23, 2010 by nopdxanticon

As we get closer to December 4th, this Santa is looking forward to the days events. All info will be posted on Black Friday just like years past.

The first year we did this, bars were hesitant about having 75+ Santa’s drinking at their establishment. Now, for the most part are welcoming to the ‘holiday bonus’ that 1000+ Santa’s and Banana’s bring. Last year with the introduction of food carts helped Santa go late into the evening as well as bring in some much needed business right before the holidays.

Questions that are coming our way….

Q. What date is this happening?

Go back to school and learn how to read Santa. How the fuck do you deliver gifts to little Johnny and Sally when you cant even read? Why not take a minute you A.D.D. lazy fuck and scroll up (or down) to the image with big fucking black letters on it. Then read the date and time?

Q. Are you meeting at Skidmore fountain?

Ya, thats why we have an image of Paul Bunyan on everything. You go down there and wait for us, will catch up with you at some point. If you have made it this far, please read the last answer just above this one.

Q. Are you doing 5 routs again this year?

No, we are going to do 3. After a very long drinking session with Alfa Santa, Mexi-cant Santa, Irish Santa, Trashy Santa and Scottish Kilt Santa we thought that we would try and keep groups a little closer this year.

Q. How will we know when to go? After a few drinks Santa has a hard time keeping track of his pants.

Santa’s will be set up with signage as well as the usual megaphone so when Santa’s got to go you will not only hear it, you will be able to see it.

Q. What if this Santa is in the bathroom getting a bumpkin from a hottie elf and is left behind?

Thats disgusting Santa! But no worries, we plan on making stickers to let you know what and where we are going. BTW, do you have that elf’s number?

Q. Will stops be off the yellow line?

Yes. All stops are within a few blocks of the yellow line.

Q. I hear this is a big bar hop. True?

Yup. Aren’t all these things?

Q./Comment I cant believe you are doing this during the Civil War game.

Really? I’ll be sure to check in with you next year Santa so that we can go around your schedule.

Q. Last year it seemed that Prost! was a hub for Mississippi area. Will that be the same this year?

No. The hub for info on Mississippi will be the christmas tree next to Laughing Planet Burrito. One of the things we are working on is to get a photographer there as well as a Santa chair. I have a dream of creating the first ‘Bad Santa’ photo experience. So if you have a friends with a kid that would like a pic with his/her choice of Santa… Should start around 5:00PM

BarBar/Mississippi Studios has also given us their space to use as a hub.

Q. Guerrilla decorating this year?

Yup. The christmas tree mentioned above will need some Santa love.

Q. Santa, did I hear something about a dance?

Santa can not confirm or deny the possibility of Lucky Brown playing a show for us and then having a DJ or two afterwords. We will give you the full scoop on Friday.

Q. Will we be finishing at the Dancing Bare?

This is correct.

We probably wont answer any more questions after this.

Please remember that this is your ‘con’. Treat it well and you will be rewarded greatly.

Santa out!


You better watch out…

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.

Images coming in:

Please join our Flickr group and add your images to the collection! Here….

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

Hours Away Santa

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!
