Santa Con, the annual event in which adults live out the broken dreams of their childhood by dressing up like Santa Claus, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, and wreaking havoc on the city, returns this Saturday, December 10 to San Francisco. What could be better?

To the delight of Christmas shoppers, SantaCon kicks off in Union Square at noon on Saturday, wending its way through North Beach, the Mission, Civic Center, and the Castro.

In case you haven’t experienced your fair share of douchebaggery for 2016, consult the map below for a list of bars that will be offering drink deals to all bros those dressed as Santa.

However, if you’re on the prowl for a place to enjoy a quiet drink without the usual Christmas cheer of a drunken Santa slobbering over your shoulder, here’s a list of bars that have officially banned all Santas (you’re welcome): 620 Jones, Eclipse Kitchen & Bar, La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, and The Cigar Bar & Grill.
