AntiCon Fights Against New York’s Drunk Santas

SantaCon will fall upon downtown Manhattan this weekend bringing with it roving packs of drunk Father Christmases. According to Eater via Bowery Boogie, the Lower East Side’s NIMBYs are fighting SantaCon’s red-suited droves with AntiCon, “a marketing campaign meant to let participants of SantaCon know that they are not welcome in the LES.” Though the Santas gallivant in the name of charity and many local bars welcome the boost in business, AntiCon is set on barring the group from its neighborhoods saying “Alcohol-soaked father Christmas-themed flash mob not welcome here.┬áTake your body fluids and public intoxication elsewhere (and off this island, preferably).” [Eater via Bowery Boogie]
