Meeting Place: 
Union Square
333 Post St

PACIFIC TRADEWINDS!!! Meet in the common room at 10:00 and we will walk down to Union Square to join thousands of other Santas before joining the whole city for a city-wide pub crawl! Bring: cash, your ID, your Santa suit!
Santa Con 2k19 is upon us!!! Don your Santa suit and head down to Union Square at noon to join thousands of other Santas, or go to basically any bar downtown, North Beach, the Marina, or along Polk Street for a gigantic daytime bar crawl. No Santa suit? No problem! The discount store Daiso at 570 Market St. (near Montgomery Station) has lots of Santa gear on the cheap. Call them to make sure they still have some in stock. The event's official organizer, who goes by the name of Santa Tom, is also hosting a toy drive, like he does every year. On the official Santa Con SF Facebook page, he encourages participants to bring an unwrapped childrens' toy to donate to the toy drive. Santa Con is about having fun, but it's also about spreading the holiday cheer and making everyone happy. Just like Santa. If you're able to, meet Santa Tom at the North side of the stage of Union Square with your toy to donate to the drive!! Also at 1 p.m., there will be an a capella band performing Christmas carols and other holiday classics. Stick around for the performance or get started on your day drinking early. If you do decide to join the festivities this Saturday, please remember to be respectful of both the Santas and non-Santas around you!
