St. Patrick’s Day Is Here – Stay Safe

St. Patrick’s Day rivals only New Year’s Eve as one of the top drinking holidays in the nation. Although many revelers party on the weekend before the holiday, there will be thousands of people out and about on the day itself. If you plan on going out, we at Auger & Auger urge you to stay safe.

Going Out?
If you plan on going out, be sure to designate a sober driver ahead of time. No one wants to be the one chosen to stay sober after they walk through the doors of the local club. How you pick the driver among your friends is up to you, just make sure you pick.

Use your smartphone wisely. There are several apps that allow you to catch a sober ride home from wherever you are. Apps like Uber are wildly popular across the nation. Simply give someone your location, wait for your ride, and get home safely.

Keep money for a cab. Even if you designate a driver, that person may not stay sober. Do not rely on them to get you home. Keep money tucked in your wallet for a cab ride home should the need arise.

Staying In?
If you are hosting people at your home, be sure to take keys at the door. This will prevent you from having to wrestle keys away from an intoxicated friend at the end of the night. Put everyone’s keys in a fish bowl and keep the bowl out of sight.

Keep it dry. A dry party is not always a popular choice but it can be fun if you do it right. There are plenty of non-alcoholic versions of your favorite cocktails (or mocktails). Look for recipes online.

If you do serve alcohol, understand that you may be held responsible should one of your guests over-indulge and cause injury to themselves or someone else. Instead of having an open bar, consider making a drink or two for everyone and keeping track of what you are handing out.

Stay sober. Yes, it is your party, but you will not be able to judge anyone’s level of intoxication if you are drunk. Limit yourself to one alcoholic drink and choose mocktails for the rest of the night.

St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday even for the non-Irish. We want to be sure that you are around to celebrate the holiday next year. Follow the tips above to help ensure your safety and that of your loved ones.
