Nothing can ruin a holiday party quite like having to spend the night jail after getting a DUI and having to shell out a wad of cash for legal fees.
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is trying to look out for you.
They’ve posted a series of videos on steps people hosting holiday parties can take to make sure their guests don’t have to spend the night in the drunk tank.
Some of the tips are a bit obvious: get a designated driver, have food at your party, and offer non-alcholic beverages.
But it also offers some pretty good ones, like passing the hate around to cover cab fees for guests, or putting the number of a cab company on the invites.
However, notably absent is the option of taking the bus.
TirMet spokesperson Mary Fetsch said that all MAX and bus service will be free after 8 p.m. on new years, but not on Christmas Eve or other holidays.
