DUI, Entertainment, Immigration, Safety, Technology, Tips & how-to

St. Patrick’s Day festivities are right around the corner. Download these seven apps to take on March 17 like a pro.

1. Waze

For the designated driver in the group, use this community-sourced traffic app to outsmart traffic, find the cheapest gas, even see which way your friends are driving to the party.

2. Yelp

Use Yelp, or one of these other stellar restaurant apps, to find the best corned beef and cabbage near you.

3. Spotify or Pandora

Build your own Dropkick Murphys-rich playlist or tune into the Irish Tourism Board’s “Ultimate St. Patrick’s Day Playlist” on Spotify. On Pandora, check out the St. Patrick’s Day station to source your night’s soundtrack.

4. Pinterest

Your go-to spot for all things crafty and delicious, on March 17 and throughout the year. Explore boards dedicated to Irish cuisine or learn how to make more St. Patrick’s Day decorations than you could ever possibly need.

5. Breathometer Breeze

This wireless smartphone breathalyzer can give you dependable BAC readings and help you make smart decisions while intoxicated — like calling an Uber for you if you’ve had too much to drink.

6. Uber or Lyft

Speaking of, download the Uber or Lyft apps to get an on-demand ride to and from your pub crawl. We promise the ride fare is well worth it: you’ll keep yourself and others safe, and it will be far cheaper than the tens of thousands of dollars a DUI can cost you.

7. Avvo Advisor

Did your apartment party get out of hand? Leprechauns not make it past Immigration? With Avvo Advisor, you can get on-demand legal help that’s cheaper than a few pints of green beer.
