So St. Patrick's Day is Monday, which means this weekend has morphed into St. Patrick's Day Weekend.
So it seems like this will be a festive place. But, before you go out, make some plans that keep you safe.
If you don't have a designated driver, AAA will provide a ride for drivers and their vehicles at no cost for up to 10 miles. If you need this service dial 1-800-AAA-HELP. Otherwise, take a taxi or call a friend.
A little bit of pre-partying planning could make a huge difference in the morning. So have some fun. Be smart. Be safe.
