3. Christmas Cheer

With the stress of Christmas shopping, the expenses that come with it, and the never-ending questions from noisy relatives ("So why aren't you married?"), it's hard to stay in the holiday spirit. Sure, you can watch Elf or The Santa Clause or even belt out Christmas tunes, but some adult celebrations are in store. And what better way to get in the spirit than with actual people. It's a good time to spend with friends and maybe even meet a new elf buddy.

2. Drink Specials

Cocktails can get pricey, and that makes staying in so much more appealing. But with SantaCon, drink specials can be as low as $3, which pales in comparison to $12 cocktails that have barely any alcohol in them. It also doesn't hurt that the bars are within walking distance of each other, so you don't have to worry about driving to each spot.

Worried about the drive home? Download the Uber app on your phone and have a driver pick you up in under ten minutes. SantaCon Fort Lauderdale even had a promo code for new users.
