Santa Rampage 2008: Mark Your Calendars

Reminder: Santa Rampage 2008
Saturday, December 13
Kick-off: 7:00 at the Tumble Inn, Champaign.

You're welcome. It's less than a month away, and I don't want you scrambling for outfits at the last minute!

What is Santa Rampage, you ask? According to the initial initiator of last year's Santa Rampage, Jeremy Jay,
Santa Rampage takes place in major cities all over the world involving tens of thousands of Santas. It is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious & non-sensical celebration of holiday cheer, goodwill, and fun. There is no good reason to dress up in cheap Santa suits, run around town, sing songs, have strangers sit on our laps, and decide who is naughty or nice—but it's a lot of fun—so Santa does it anyway.
Essentially, it's bar-hopping in Santa Suits. Oh, and last year, bowling, too.

Here a few photographic highlights from last year's event.

We ran into newlyweds Kim and Dean during the evening; they ended up using some semblance of this photo for their Christmas card last year.

Sniff. My first ever dance on a bar. I'm so proud.

Gather up your own Santa Cliques and meet us downtown on the 13th! I really think we can match those City-Slicker Rampages, Santa-for-Santa.

    Holy crap... I'm sorry I missed the bar dancing!

  2. There's always this year...if I have enough liquid courage to get dance on the bar in heels again...not sure if it's likely.

  4. This was your First Ever bar dance? Oh hell, we so need to live closer to each other. >:)
