New Year’s Eve is a night to celebrate with friends and family, to look back on the past year and to consider all the open doors in the next, and of course, to make memories—some you may want to forget once the ball drops—and some you’ll definitely want to remember forever…
If you’re making memories in Door County this New Year’s Eve, remember that Midnight to 5am on New Year’s Day can be a very dangerous time to be on the road even with a DD. If you don’t have a responsible Designated Driver to take you home after the festivities, please take advantage of the SafeRide Program. Local restaurants Cooper’s Corner, Mink River Basin, Shipwrecked Brew Pub, the Pub at Stone Harbor Resort, Donny’s Glidden Lodge Restaurant at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, and many others participate in the SafeRide Program. If you have a smart phone, use the Tavern League of Wisconsin’s App for iPhone or Android to find a map and list of all Door County’s participating restaurants and pubs—pick one of these and make it your last stop for the night, just double check with your bartender on arrival to ensure your ride!
