SantaCon PDX 2007 – Captured!

I saw the crowd of rowdy Santas downtown at 1 pm near Ash Street Saloon on Saturday – but MB Seattle author Ryan Healy did us PDX MB SantaCon slackers one better. He was here, live and local, captured several minutes of the frenzy on video, set it to music, and sent it over to us as a token of, well, something anyway…!

Says Ryan: “Sorry for the turbulence — it was unavoidable.” Thanks, Ryan for taking one for our team!

    I felt like I was there. I was very annoyed and wanted to go home.

    Thanks Betsy. I should note that I was not part of this event — just sort of thrust into it by circumstance. That said, the very drunk Santas were all impossibly friendly if a little NSFW (I left the nudity out of the video).

    Thanks for a memorable weekend, Portland!

    Hooray! I was in Vegas this weekend and bummed that I was going to miss it. Glad to see the video – thanks Ryan and Betsy!
