Saucy Santas Stream through Downtown

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. The jolly old souls already had been guzzling down the spiked wassail in a number of city neighborhoods and were drinking up some of the Crack Fox's Yuletide cheer before continuing their tour.
