Last month the NYPD sent a letter to bars, taverns, lounges, and clubs in the city with a special request.
The police requested that the alcohol diespensers refuse to serve booze to the Santa-clad attendees of SantaCon 2013 that would descend upon the city on December 14 in full St. Nick costumes to do their annual all-day bar crawl through the city. Attendees of SantaCon 2013 also dressed like elves and reindeer as well.
While it is reported that there were no-Santa zones established, as seen in the photo gallery posted by ABC News depicting the not-so-discreet Santa Clauses converging on and running through the streets of NYC yesterday, the request was not 100% upheld citywide in the City that Never Sleeps.
Oh well … ho-ho-ho!
