Tomorrow New York City will embrace the ho, ho, holy hell of SantaCon!  It ‘s that one time of year where flocks of Santa and elf impersonators embark on a festive bar crawl, making a booze-fueled scene through the city that you’ll find either amusing or annoying to watch. The NYPD describes it as more “naughty” than “nice”.  For so many reasons:
  1. Expect Grid Lock: Thousands in Santa costumes will begin gathering across from MSG on the 33rd St. plaza between Seventh and Eighth avenues until 11 a.m. Saturday before trekking to bars in Midtown, the East Village and Chelsea. The SantaCon revelry lasts into the night, so be warned. 
  2. LIRR Commuters:  Prepare for crowded trains and a total ban of alcoholic beverages for all riders from noon Saturday until noon Sunday. 
  3. Heavy police presence:  NYPD is hoping bars will not participate and turn Santas away.  They are preparing to have a heavy presence of officers in midtown watching out for disorderly Santas!
