New Year’s is a time for toasting with family and friends. But you wouldn’t want toasts to turn into trouble. Bringing in the New Year can be a safe and fun experience for everyone in your household if you practice the following rules.
Limit Time on the Road
We’re not just talking about in the evening. For some reason people let loose on New Year’s Eve and may even begin drinking early in the day.
Minimize your driving all day long to avoid drunk motorists.
Attend a Party Close to Home
By celebrating near home, you minimize exposure to drunk drivers. One fine opportunity among even centers in Tulsa is the Forest Ridge New Year’s Eve party, 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. It’s being held at one of the most elegant restaurants in Broken Bow — Café Savannah’s. It’s located in the main club house at Forest Ridge Golf Course. The price is $30 per person.
You can make reservations by calling Brian Bodenstab at (918) 357-4407 or emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our community special events and broad range of quality houses by Tulsa home builders make Forest Ridge a greatBroken Arrow real estate choice.
Eat While Drinking
No doubt you’ve heard this rule over and over: Never drink on an empty stomach. But did you know that consuming protein foods, such as cheese, meats, and nuts slows alcohol absorption?
Don’t Drink and Drive
If you don’t have a sober driver for a safe trip home, call the AAA Tipsy Tow service at (800) 222-4357. AAA will deliver you and your car home for free even if you aren’t a member.
Be a Responsible Host
If you are holding a party, don’t let guests drive under the influence of alcohol. Invite them to stay over or arrange safe transportation.
Supervise Teen Parties
Help your teen organize an alcohol-free party and then, without hovering too much, stay home to oversee safety.
Protect Your Pets
Keep pets indoors and away from holiday commotion. If you have a party, make sure they don’t consume dangerous holiday foods, like chocolate or swallow decorations.
Avoid Treating Guns Like Fireworks
Champagne corks and fireworks fly on New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately, so do bullets when gun owners celebrate by shooting randomly into the air. But falling bullets can injure and kill others. Lock up any household firearms.
So, party hearty, but party safe.
