Santarchy 2014 in Scottsdale

Several hundred Santas walked into a bar this past weekend. No, that's not the setup for the lamest Christmas joke ever, but instead is the most succinct way we could sum up this year's edition of Santarchy, which took place on Saturday, December 6, in downtown Scottsdale.

Thing is, it wasn't just an endless series of Saint Nick doppelgangers that participated in the annual urban prank and bar crawl, as an enormous cadre of characters in costumes inspired by the holidays in every form and fashion hit up most of the bigger bars in Scottsdale -- including Dos Gringos, Rockbar, Wasted Grain, The Derby, Hi Fi, and Maya -- and filled 'em to capacity.
