...and they are expected in the East Village between 4:30 and 7 ... "Have fun anywhere in the green zone," according to the directive. Pay no mind to us residents! You're just having fun!

Although they have specific bars listed ... I imagine there will be Santas everywhere in the neighborhood. The other crappy thing is that the time frame (4:30-7:00) means that a lot of the Santa's probably won't go across to Brooklyn at 7pm and will just stay in the EV all night.
It might be nice to have a few places that volunteer to be "Santa-free zones" that could be publicized as safe places to go on Saturday.
I know that the Grassroots on St. Mark's won't serve any Santas... anywhere else?
Also, we understand that there at least two other separate Santa events here Saturday...
