Is no neighborhood safe from jolly, boozehound elves?
Just as the Portland Cacophony Society
announces Santacon 2008 is evading police notice of its public drunkenness by moving from downtown to Hillsboro,
a group called Nopdxanticon has declared it will hold its own red-clad pub crawl on Dec. 6 in North Portland.
The crawl will start in Kenton under the Paul Bunyan statue at 1 pm on Dec. 6 and work its way south on the MAX yellow line. There will be, we are informed, "Santa Games." So, to repeat: Santacon goes to the blue line, Anticon departs to the yellow line.
Basically, the slowly dawning realization here is that if you have children (especially these children
), keep them far away from any MAX trains on Dec. 6.
The red line is still officially safe, but probably not for long. Red is Santa's favorite color.
