Santa's job of delivering gifts to billions of children is stressful, so it's no wonder he might need a little liquid relief now and then. While on assignment at a titillating burlesque show at the Crack Fox,RFT photographer Steve Truesdell encountered St. Nick and plenty of his lookalike helpers making merry during the St. Louis Santarchy's annual all-day pub crawl.
