3 Ways To Get Home Safe This New Years Eve


3 Ways To Get Home Safe This New Years Eve

We all care about our family and friends, so please think of others tonight and do not get in the car drunk. Here are 3 ways to get home safe tonight if you have been out partying. This can possibly save another life.

  • First, for those who aren’t drinking: Deputies recommended you download an app called Designated Driver VIP or DDVIP, which is free on iTunes and Android and helps people find bars that offer free non-alcoholic drinks, food or other incentives to designated drivers.
  • Orange County Transportation Authority buses will be offering free rides to people on New Year’s Eve from 6 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Orange County taxi cabs will also be working during the holiday. If you are not from OC look up your local transportation Authority.
  • The Auto Club of Southern California is also offering its free Tipsy Tow service. A person who has been drinking can call 1-800-400-4AAA and ask for a tow. A service truck will arrive and take the person – no passengers allowed – and their car home free for the first seven miles. The service is available from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on New Year’s.

Tips on Booking Dining Reservations During the Holidays

Tips_Holiday _Dining

Dining during the Holidays is a wonderful tradition. You can create special memories without the added holiday stress by following these simple tips and recommendations for a successful dining experience:

 Tips On Booking Dining Reservations During the Holidays

  • Call at least 2 weeks in advance for a restaurant reservation during the holidays. You would be surprised how quickly they book up. Not everyone wants to cook a honey baked ham for a party of seven.
  • Look up directions in advance if you have never been. Plan on getting there on time with traffic in mind.
  • If you are running late, call ahead and let the restaurant know. They will appreciate the heads up.
  • If you have a special table or a server in mind, or you are celebrating a special occasion be sure to note that in your reservation.
  • If u have small children, make the reservation early around 5pm. This way you beat the dinner rush and can be back for bedtime.
  • If you have any diet restrictions the restaurant might need to know about, let them know in advance so they can check with the chef.
  • Research the menu ahead of time to see if it will accommodate every taste bud.
  • Research the dress code before you go
