TOLEDO, OH (EDITORIAL) -

So St. Patrick's Day is Monday, which means this weekend has morphed into St. Patrick's Day Weekend. 

So it seems like this will be a festive place.  But, before you go out, make some plans that keep you safe.  

If you don't have a designated driver, AAA will provide a ride for drivers and their vehicles at no cost for up to 10 miles.  If you need this service dial 1-800-AAA-HELP.  Otherwise, take a taxi or call a friend. 

A little bit of pre-partying planning could make a huge difference in the morning.  So have some fun.  Be smart.  Be safe.
