Happy New Year’s 2012!

Happy New Year’s Venice! Click here for the list of what is happening around town! Party like it is 2012 but take cabs or walk! If you even need to ask yourself if you are sober enough to drive, the answer is don’t drive!

There will be a D.U.I. checkpoint on Lincoln at Maxella starting at 8pm this evening and a lot of extra police officers because of it! Starting off the new year in jail would suck! Don’t shoot your guns either!

For free rides home:
AAA Tipsy Tow: 800-400-4-AAA
The Metro Buses will also be FREE from 9 p.m. on!

Yellow Cab: (800) 200-1085
