Santarchy: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

When you mix hundreds of Santas, a few more Mrs. Clauses and some scandalous elves, you're bound for entertainment. Over the weekend, we followed the Arizona Cacophony Society's annual Santarchy bar crawl in Scottsdale and took a few notes.

The Good's above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump, and the whole tinseled slideshow is right here.
