There are two things that many of us love, the holidays and drinking. So, why not pair both of them together? SantaCon NYC has quickly become one of New York City’s most fun events and it’s no wonder why. Think about it- you have all of your best friends with you, dressed up in your favorite holiday gear, and you visit all of the best bars in New York. This Saturday, December 14, if you look out your window you’ll be sure to see all sorts of people dressed as Santas, gingerbread men, candy canes, and so much more.
As one of New York’s best, Bounce Sporting Club is here to host all of you no matter if you’re on the naughty or nice list. We’re also here to give you all of the information about this year’s SantaCon, so keep reading to learn more!
What is SantaCon?
SantaCon is a charitable, non-political, nonsense, all fun type of convention that happens once every year. It’s basically the best-controlled chaos that involves everything we love about the holidays, including drinking. It’s the perfect excuse to let loose and have fun with your friends while meeting new friends all around the city.
When is SantaCon?
SantaCon in New York City is this Saturday, December 14 and it begins at 10 am. This may seem early to you, but as one of our favorite artists (Drake) said, “Champagne with breakfast while I’m yawning, you can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning.” So pour a glass and get yourself out in your best holiday gear!
Where is SantaCon?
SantaCon New York City 2019 takes the location of multiple bars all over the city. You can find the official list of bars and special Santa venues by clicking here. While almost every single bar is sure to welcome adults of all ages, no matter if they’re dressed up or not, there are certain bars in your area that are listed as prime SantaCon venues. So if you’re looking to meet Mrs. Clause we suggest you find a SantaCon bar near you. You can also follow @SantaCon on Twitter to find out more information and various alerts.
Now that you know the main details about SantaCon NYC, let’s jump into some other tips and tricks that you may find useful!
Plan Your Outfit
The whole point of SantaCon is to showcase your best holiday outfit. No matter if that holiday outfit is the classic Santa suit, a Christmas tree, or your best Buddy the Elf costume, you want to make sure that you have an outfit. Don’t be that guy who has to head to the store to get an outfit and then makes the entire group late. Be prepared with a costume that fits you and that you can comfortably drink in. You’ll also be bar hopping, which means walking, so be sure to wear some comfortable walking shoes.
Pack The Necessities
While it may be tempting to just grab your bag and head out the door, make sure that you have everything before you go. Since this event is a pretty fast-paced one, you want to make sure that you know where everything is. Honestly, all you need is your phone, home keys, and wallet (with your ID and money). You also may want to bring a small portable charger with you since SantaCon tends to be a day filled with endless selfies, texts to friends, and Uber or Lyft calls. Only bring the things that you need, trust us, you don’t want to get weighed down by all the unnecessary things in your bag.
Eat A Big Breakfast
SantaCon starts in the morning, which means that you’re going to want to be sure that you eat a good meal before the day drinking commences. While you can always whip up a nice hearty breakfast at home, skip all that work and head over to Bounce Sporting Club in New York City. Our brunch menu is sure to satisfy your breakfast cravings no matter if you’re wanting sweet or savory. Some of our favorite plates include our Cornflake Crusted Rum Soaked French Toast and Market Frittata. You can also wash it down with a refreshing mimosa or bloody mary.
