We’d be remiss if we didn’t say to plan ahead and have a Designated Driver for the evening or plan on a cab ride home – these alternatives are so much more effective than the ride home with sirens going!

Of course, give a call ahead of time to make sure the event you are interested in attending does not require reservations, advance ticket purchase or is already sold out!
