Are you Santa enough to drink your way from downtown to the North Pole (aka Mount Adams) in a costumed, group bar crawl? Put on a red suit and prepare yourself to imbibe a night’s worth of milk and cookies — except replace milk with alcohol; you can still eat the cookies. The Santacon sleigh stops at Monk’s, Holy Grail, Igby’s and Lackman, with a half-hour loop running until 10 p.m. Check out a tip sheet online for how to be Santa and a lyric sheet of songs the group will be singing. Remember, this is about the holiday spirit, so don’t drink and drive and don’t be a dick and mess with cops, kids, security or other Santas. Noon-midnight Saturday.
Free to participate but you are encouraged to donate to the Cure Starts Now. First sleigh leaves from Horseshoe Casino, 1000 Broadway St., Pendleton, cincinnatisantacon.com.
