Santarchy Hits Scottsdale on Saturday Night

When patrons of Old Town Scottsdale's numerous bars and clubs spy a throng of rowdy revelers dressed as jolly old Saint Nicholas coming towards them on Saturday night during Santarchy, the foremost thought in their minds will probably be along the lines of "WTF?"

When the proprietors of said drinking and dancing dens witness the same sight, however, they'll probably be thinking something else altogether. Like maybe, "Here comes the money." That's because the annual Santa-themed bar crawl, which is organized by the Arizona Cacophony Society, equals hundreds of beer-swilling Kris Kringles invading their establishment, filling their registers, and instantly amping up the already wild atmosphere.
