Why is it there are so many street repairs at this time of the year? Wouldn’t you think with so much happening now they would hold off for a month? You should realize the Ides of March means Madness in more than just college basketball for those who stay home or drink in a bar rooting on their favorite team. There is so much more to March at this time of the year. Of course everything involves drinking and driving after we enjoy the event. For instance we just concluded BNP Tennis last weekend, but let’s not forget: Golf, NASCAR and St Patty’s. All involve drinking and often in our strong sun.
Of course Coachella and Stagecoach are only a few weeks away and that too brings thousands of partiers to our desert. When we travel we often forget that it is just as dangerous to drink here as it is where they come from.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE, CALL A TAXI, LYFT OR UBER………THEY ARE A LOT CHEAPER THAN CALLING ME … LAW ENFORCEMENT WARNS “DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER”
