It’s a bar crawl, it’s a run, it’s a holiday festival -- it’s the Running of the Santas and it’s taking over the city on Saturday, Dec. 18.
Starting at 10 a.m. head to any of the following bars for $2 beer, $4 Captain Morgans and more:
Paddy Whacks South Street
The Irish Pol
FOP Lodge #5
Mad River Old City
Lucy's Hat Shop
Fado Irish Pub
Philadelphia Irish Pub
But make sure you keep an eye on the the forecast and the time because at 3 p.m., the party continues at Finnigan’s Wake on 3rd. Beer prices go up a dollar, but you can still get $4 Captain Morgan drinks. And at 5 p.m., there will be a Hottest Santa contest with prizes by Steven Singer Jewelers.
At 6 p.m. sharp, Santas will line up outside the bar and “run” to the Electric Factory (don’t sweat it, it’s only three blocks) to party at the biggest Christmas get together around featuring an indoor/outdoor festival with venders, games, drinks, food and tons of live entertainment.
