Whether you’re Irish or not, there’s something special about St. Patrick’s Day. The green attire and green beer seems to go hand-in-hand with the greener grass and warmer weather.
No matter where you live in Arlington, there are plenty of options for going out and celebrating with a pint or three.
If you are going to participate in the traditional St. Paddy’s Day drinking ritual, you’ll also have plenty of options for getting back home safely. Designate a driver, take Metro, or call a free cab from the SoberRide program at 1-800-200-TAXI (8294). Red Top Cab is among the taxi companies participating in the SoberRide program.
If you’re still thinking about driving, consider this: Arlington police will be stepping up patrols and establishing a DUI checkpoint tonight.
