Coming to downtown Grand Rapids for the Ball Drop or one of the many other events? Don't get too drunk, there are no free ride home options for you.

If you're too drunk to drive following tonight's new Year's Eve festivities, you'll have to foot the bill for your own ride home if you can't drive.

Free ride options that have been offered in the past will not be available tonight. Christensen Law Firm, which offered free rides on Thanksgiving Eve (which has supplanted NYE for the drunkest night of the year), will NOT be offering free rides for New Year's.

Of course, you can use UBER or LYFT  but here are numbers to cabs in West Michigan as well:

Calder City Taxi -  (616) 454-8080
Boss Taxi - (616) 303-0141
Great Lakes Taxi - (616) 241-5150

In addition to Townsquare Media's GR Ball Drop, here is a list of events going on in and around downtown Grand Rapids tonight. There's even some Yoga and noon-alcoholic events listed in there if you're seeking an alternative.

Please be careful, and drive safe!
