This just in from Santa HQ... final deets on Saturday's mayhem. Apologies if you get this several times, we don't want to miss anyone ...
Santarchy Ottawa: SANTAGATE
WHEN: Saturday, Dec 15th, 7pm, 6pm if you plan to eat with Santa
WHERE: Patty Boland's Pub on Clarance Street in the Market (http://tinyurl.com/yqk47j)
Where we go from there is up to SANTA! If you're coming for food, please email [email protected] to reserve space. Please don't order food at Pattys (or anywhere else along the route) unless you arrive before 6:30, we'll be moving hard and fast and you'll get left behind. Pay as you go instead of running a tab, Santa may have to run any any moment. We'll be leaving Pattys around 8:30.
We'll be regaling the public at various points with selections from Santa's Big Book of Dirty Carols.. to make sure we have enough, download and print a couple of copies at: http://www.zenten.ca/docs/Ottawa%20Santarchy%202007.pdf (To print these, print the odd pages, flip them over and put them back in the printer, print the even pages, then fold and staple in the middle)
Remember Santa's dress code: A Santa hat is NOT ENOUGH. Don't have a santa suit? Make or buy one, but don't show up in just a santa hat unless you have $1000's to buy us all drinks, all night. Yes, you WILL be Santa's Little Bitch(tm). Hint: Dollar store tree skirts make excellent kilts or shawls. Full details on Santas Rules at http://www.santagate.org/
Saturday's forecast looks COLD, so dress appropriately under those Santa suits.
Bring money for drinks.
Bring proper 19+ ID
Bring an unmarked drinking vessel.
Bring comfy shoes and warm clothes.
Bring gifts and crap for the shoppers and homeless.
Bring a musical instrument.
Bring a camera.
Bring your loud ass and your singing pipes.
BRING YOUR OWN BAIL!
REMEMBER THE FOUR FUCKS:
Don't fuck with KIDS
Don't fuck with THE LAW
Don't fuck with SECURITY
DON'T FUCK WITH SANTA
Santa is just about the best response to any question asked, like "Who's in charge here?" or "What's your name?".
Ho Ho Ho MOFO!
