You just don’t see 200 slutty Santas doing shots and hopping DART every day. Just once or twice a year, thanks to start-up fun-makers Santa Rampage. The bar tour has become more than a drunken Dallas tradition, it’s an excuse to go jingle balls-out with the old hot-glue gun to make an elf suit worthy of the evening. Military Santa? Been done. How about hooker Rudolph? Taken. Yep, it’s getting tough to rise to the top at Santa Rampage, and that’s OK. Just do shots until you feel better about your janky ensemble. There’s stuff you should know if you’re going to join the merry thonged throngs, like be nice to cops and bartenders, bring cash for your drinks and keep an eye on the Twitter account, because Santa really gets around. Visit facebook.com/dallassantarampage for the lowdown, bus routes and sneak attacks. And if you have little gifts to hand out, all the better. Schnapps and condoms work great. It’s free.

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.
