Be safe, responsible on national holiday

Editor, the Advocate:

Whether at a backyard barbecue or on the water this Labor Day weekend, Del Papa Distributing reminds all Texans to celebrate responsibly and include a designated driver or skipper in their plans for this long weekend.

As the area's Anheuser-Busch distributor, Del Papa Distributing is committed to helping adults enjoy a safe and responsible holiday by sharing a few quick tips from the Bud Light Party Code: • Have a game plan. If you're heading to a party and plan on enjoying Bud Light, choose a designated driver or put a few cab numbers in your phone and stash some cash in your pocket to cover the fare.

• Hydrate with water. If you're enjoying alcoholic beverages, remember to drink a few glasses of water throughout the night.

• Know your limits. At the beginning of the night, decide how many drinks you plan to enjoy and stick to it.

We hope residents of Victoria will join us as we promote responsible celebration this holiday weekend. These are our roads, and we have a shared responsibility to keep them safe. However you get home this Labor Day weekend, please designate a driver.
