Making mischief with Santa and his elves

If you missed the mischief with Santa and his elves in downtown Asheville on Saturday, Mountain Xpress photographer Jonathan Welch was there to capture the fun. The music in the photo slideshow, “Santa Rag,” is by Brian Hefferan.

    Jonathan, it was good having you along at Santacon, and Santa just loves the slideshow. Hope to see you next year. Also, the elf you were with at the Boilerroom wants you to call, says its urgent.
    Until next year,

    Does anyone know of bars open in Asheville on Christmas day? My sister turns 21 Christmas Day and we would like to celebrate it in NC.
