St. Patrick’s Day

Dear Editor:

On March 17th Americans from coast-to-coast will don shamrock green and celebrate one of the biggest parties of the year – St. Patrick’s Day. For those over the legal drinking age, we’re asking you to stay under the limit and do your part to prevent drunk driving.

That’s why we at Silver Eagle Distributors are joining Anheuser-Busch and asking pub-goers to enjoy responsibly and get home safe no matter where the night takes you. Over the past 30 years, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have invested more than $1 billion in the United States to promote alcohol responsibility and help prevent drunk driving.  Locally, Silver Eagle is working with area bars and restaurants to encourage revelers 21 and older to celebrate responsibly and designate a driver or make plans for a safe ride home. And in conjunction with the Houston Restaurant Association, we will also be implementing programs such as Alert Cab, which helps provide free and discounted rides home for bar and restaurant patrons who may have had too much to drink. Driver’s License guides and We I.D. age calendars will also be used to assist in identifying and preventing those who are underage from purchasing and consuming alcohol.

When making plans for this St. Patrick’s Day, think ahead to the end of the night and make the choice that keeps both you and the roads safe for everyone. Please use a designated driver, a taxi, ride-sharing service, or public transportation if you’ve been celebrating with alcohol.

From everyone at Silver Eagle Distributors, have a happy and safe St. Patrick’s!
