For the fourth year running, The Sawaya Law Firm will pick up the New Year's Eve tab on your cab ride home. They'll actually pay your fare tonight, as well -- the program started on December 23rd and goes until January 1.
How it works: You pay your cab driver and send the receipt and a copy of your driver's license (for proof of age) to:
Holiday Free Cab Ride Program at The Sawaya Law Firm 1600 Ogden St, Denver, CO, 80218.
You have to be within the Denver Metro area, there's a $35 limit, and the offer is only good for your ride home. And you have to be 21.
The Firm has been steadily expanding the offer to include other heavy-drinking holidays Halloween, Fourth of July and, for the first time this year, St. Patrick's day. So far, they've paid out somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000.
It's a hefty commitment, but firm owner Michael Sawaya is happy to pay. He lost a sister to a drunk driver when he was younger. "He doesn't want any families to go through that," says firm employee Jackie Wolz.
