My ‘Mom Tips’ for Staying Safe this St. Patty’s Day

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I forgot to wear green today, but my name is Irish so that’ll have to do. This year St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday, so I just want to send some safety love your way. No one wants to end a fun-filled night of green beer with a DUI (or worse) because you failed to be responsible.

  1. Figure out how you’re getting home before leaving. Whether Über, Lyft, cab, or a designate driver – just make sure you have a plan before making your moves.
  2. Stay hydrated throughout the day. I know, I sound like a mom. But it makes a big difference if you keep your water intake high.
  3. Eat. Eat. Eat.
  4. Stay together. Don’t veer off or leave your group.
  5. Let someone know where you’re going in case of an emergency (i.e. your phone dies).
  6. Call the police and report a drunk driver if you see one.
  7. Go pick up some St. Patty’s day freebies/specials from these hot spots.

Moral of the story, have fun but be smart. It’s no fun when a night out turns into a nightmare because of a stupid decision.

Be Easy,

Erin
