Everyone’s favorite/most hated Christmas NYC event is making its new home in Brooklyn, after 16 years in the East Village. That’s right, SantaCon is coming to Bushwick. For all three of you who don’t know, SantaCon is essentially a bar crawl but with thousands of people dressed in Santa Claus costumes. And, yes, it does devolve into exactly what you would expect.
The news was broken via an email sent to Bushwick bar owners, asking for their participation. “SantaCon 2014 is coming to Bushwick on December 13th from 10am till 2pm. We would like to list your venue as one of our participating locations,” wrote the organizers, in a not-at-all-desperate ask for support. Perhaps this is just another sign that Bushwick is the new East Village, or perhaps it’s a sign that the East Village just kicked them out.
