The annual hibernal holiday pub crawl (or horror show, depending on whether or not you appreciate 10,000 drunk Santas on the streets) known as Cincinnati SantaCon returned on Dec. 14 bigger than ever.
Last year, those dressed like Santa and other Christmasy characters met at the "North Pole" and embarked on a costumed group pub crawl around downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine. This year, drinking destinations in Northside, Covington and Mount Adams joined in the fray. (Note: Other years have also included stops in Mount Adams, just not last year.) More than 50 venues across the area participated.
