While you’re double-fisting Lemon Drops and Cosmos at 1:30 a.m. to beat last call, getting home is probably the furthest thing from your mind. But when the lights come on and you stagger into the street with a white-knuckled grip on your car keys, the 10 minutes between downtown and your house can stretch out like an eternity — one you might meet up with if you actually decide to get behind the wheel. Luckily, there are some bored folks just waiting to keep you out of trouble. Dial-A-DD will meet you at your car and drive it home while you ride shotgun, then leave in their own relay vehicle. They won’t even try to crash on your couch. And what, you may ask, is the cost of this potentially life/jail/career saving service? For you, it’s absolutely free.
