Thousands of Santas, elves, reindeer, and general snow hos, roam the streets of downtown in search of great drink prices (generally not great) and good times. I’m always in for a good time, and the Santa Crawl is no exception.
I started my trek for the perfect Santa Crawl by selecting a crawl-worthy ensemble. My “Bah-Humbug” attitude led me to a sweater I found on Amazon.com:

My hometown, Reno, Nevada, was recently put on blast by EscapeHere.com as one of the “10 Worst Cities to Visit in the United States.” Now, I wouldn’t exactly call Reno a travel destination, but there are many fun attractions, activities, and all around merriment to be had in The Biggest Little City.
