Santarchy reappears in SF on Saturnday 12/15.

Just when you thought it was safe to open the flue in your chimney again,it's the…

San Francisco Santa Derby

Once again, defying all common sense, there will be a Crazy Santa Crawl through the throngs of unsuspecting Christmas shoppers and baffled tourists, this time along Haight Street and through the Marina. Gird your loins for an all-day event, since we'll be HO-HO-HOing past dirty teenage hippy-wannabes and drug-addled derelicts in the afternoon, followed by an evening of snooty Chestnut Street shoppers looking for just the right wine rack to match the brushed-chrome pantry drawer pulls. There will be stops at the bars, donut shops, lingerie stores, and possibly the Northern Station Police Headquarters if you don't behave yourselves. But the Naughty Santa show was last weekend, so instead we'll be 'nice' as we lurch around town with our bullhorns and hip flasks.

This is a multi-staged event, which you can join at various times throughout the day. The initial kickoff will be at Murio's Trophy Room on Haight Street at 3 PM, and then we'll parade towards the Lower Haight, hitting bars and head shops along the way. When the Red Brigade eventually reaches Fillmore, we'll board the Loony Bus (Muni #22) and head off towards the Marina. You can also provide your own transportation if you're in any shape to do so. At 7 PM we'll meet at the Marina Green, and join forces with any evening-only Santas who show up. From there we'll spread Christmas Cheer and Mad Reindeer Disease to the Marina area and it's foofy shopping avenues. Remember that America is Open For Business, and Santa's got a brand new bag!

Bring along odd gifts, bawdy carols, good walking shoes, drinking/bail money, and of course, a cheap Santa suit. Dress warmly if the weather so warrants.

Saturday, December 15:

3 PM - Murio's Trophy Room, 1811 Haight Street, at Stanyan (tip well!)

7 PM - Marina Green, near the Harbor Office building
Look for the stone/brick with lighted cupola on the waterfront opposite Scott Street. There are bathrooms available (maybe). We'll depart when all the afternoon Santas have arrived. Bring something to stay warm.

Here's some mail-order Santa suit info. Additional last-minute suits: Costumes on Haight (735 Haight), House ofMagic (2025 Chestnut), Wal-Mart (?)

It ain't Christmas until the Fat Man jingles.
