DUI Saturation Patrols on St Patricks Day AND Newport’s Irish Establishments!

The Newport Beach Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols for the St. Patricks Day Weekend, from Saturday the 16th through Sunday the 17th throughout the city of Newport Beach– so be prepared for traffic delays.

If you’re looking for Newport’s more “emerald” establishments, look no further than the very-Irish establishment “The Shamrock”, located at 2633 West Coast Hwy C, Newport Beach, CA 92663
If you want to check out a larger– and perhaps more interpretive-leprechaunish establishment, look no further than Muldoons in Fashion Island.
If you’re looking to get “into the mix”, then the answer to your Sunday Funday is, of course, Malarky’s Irish Pub, located on the Balboa Peninsula– home of a bunch of honorary-Irish establishments on the weekend– many within walking distance from Malarky’s.

But whateava yea do, doant wash dis video to len how a professional can guide you to speakin’ in an Oirish accent all weekend longhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=23&v=W2PHch4IPPQb

1) 18004mytaxi is no longer working, call the Yellow Cab OC number, above.
2) The Downtowner has been run out of business by Diane Dixon’s seasonal bus idea, so this is no longer a viable way to move around town.

In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that 10,497 people died nationwide in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving drunk drivers. Right here in California, 1,059 DUI deaths (involving a BAC of .08 or above) were reported to NHTSA that year.
