Good Morning fellow Geeks! 

While we all look forward to have a bit of fun this St. Patty's day I also want to remind everyone to get home safe - please see the information below on SoberRide - a program that offers free cab rides in the event you are not ok to drive.  [masked] is the number for program and it can take about 30 -45 minutes for your cab to arrive. But please either use the metro or this to get home if you are too drunk to drive. 


WRAP's 2012 St. Patrick's Day SoberRide program will be offered on Saturday, March 17, 2012 from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am on Sunday, March 18, 2012.  To receive a free cab ride home (up to a $30.00 fare), please call[masked] (TAXI).  Please refer to the SoberRide information listed below for important details concerning this program.  You must be 21 or older to use the SoberRide service

Important note:  All requests for SoberRide service must be called to and dispatched from[masked]-8294.  Do not call a taxi company directly for SoberRide service as the ride will not be covered under this program.
