St. Patrick's Day is about a week away.
We want to know how you're planning to get home that night. We asked our Facebook fans if they plan on hiring a taxi or shuttle service or if they'll be relying on a friend.
Amanda Cameron she doesn't have the option of a shuttle service in Kahoka. She says, "Its find a designated driver, drink and drive or just stay home. I'm staying home....the morning is much easier."
EventsSt. Pat's Pub Crawl: Looking for some St. Patty's Day fun in Quincy? The Historic Quincy Business District is hosting its annual pub crawl this Saturday, March 12, from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The group will start at the Phoenix and from there will visit four other pubs.
Executive Director Travis Brown says it's sure to be a night of fun, even if you don't plan on drinking.
"This was developed a few year's back as a fundraiser for us and has been really successful and grown every year. We've got bars begging us to be apart of it and people beating down our doors to get in it. It's just really fun and a great night that's exclusive to drinking, but it also really helps us," said Travis Brown. "Almost everybody does drink specials obviously, whether it's green beer or green Jello shots, but a lot of them have t-shirt contests and giveaways. Last year, we went to Pops and we were writing on the ceiling with chalk board paint. I mean, they just do little fun things for us to make it special for the group."
Brown says limited space is available, so make your reservations now. Also, the HQBD has arranged for overnight stays at the Microtel at a discounted price.
