Santa has a lot of work to cram into one night, but the rest of the year he's free to bowl, drink and do the occasional five brisk minutes of cardio-kickboxing. Santacon St. Louis allows you to cut loose like a not-yet-busy Santa, in the spirit of Christmas. Dress up like Santa (or an elf, or Mrs. Claus, or one of those frisky reindeer -- whatever you're into, man) and head to Soulard for an evening of drinking and revelry. The Santa-themed pub crawl starts at Franklin's Pub and hits three other bars before closing down McGurk's.

5 p.m.-1 a.m. Sat., Dec. 13. Franklin's Pub (728 Lafayette Avenue; Free admission.
Sat., Dec. 13, 5 p.m.-1 a.m., 2014
