Hundreds of drunk Santas roaming Dallas sounds like the beginning of a scary Christmas movie. Unless of course you’re in on the drinking, too. Starting at 4 p.m. Saturday at Mockingbird Station, you can meet with other people who want to drink away the holidays for a Santa Rampage. This year, however,drinking and then walking bar to bar isn’t enough. Santas need to dance. Yes, participants are encouraged to bring their own FM-friendly boombox so they can jingle their bells or shake their Santa tail feather or whatever the hell Santa does when he’s drunk. So grab your Santa costume — or scantily clad elf costume — and your spiked hot chocolate, and ho, ho, ho (sorry) your way through Dallas.
Sat., Dec. 6, 4 p.m., 2014
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
