TRAV­ELLERS in New York next week­end should leave their hip flasks be­hind if they are plan­ning to catch a train.

Al­co­holic bev­er­ages are be­ing banned on the Metro-North and Long Is­land RailRoad for 24 hours from noon on Sat.

The rea­son is the an­nual San­taCon - a pub crawl in which peo­ple dress up as Santa Claus.

It’s all for a good cause, with the event rais­ing money for char­ity through do­na­tions, in re­turn for which par­tic­i­pants re­ceive a “Su­per Du­per Santa Badge” and pri­or­ity en­trance to a range of venues.

Those want­ing a very merry pre-Christ­mas week­end will find the se­cret start lo­ca­tion un­veiled on Fri night via Twit­ter and at san­tacon.nyc.
