Wishing Everyone a Happy and Safe New Year!

newyears party


If you’re heading out to celebrate the new year, make sure you have a designated driver.

The Red Cross is helping promote the idea by teaming with local bars to provide designated drivers free, non-alcoholic beverages. Those individuals will receive special cups and a designated driver pin.

Seven bars in the Tri-County Area will provide designated drivers free nonalcoholic beverages this New Year’s Eve in an effort to curb drunken driving.

Participating establishments are:

BG Karaoke Saloon, 5605 S. Adams St., Bartonville
Crusens, 2117 W. Farmington Road, West Peoria
Goodfellas Pub & Pizza, 1414 N. Eighth St., Pekin
Jac’s Doghouse, 2024 Broadway St., Pekin
Kelleher’s Irish Pub & Eatery, 619 SW Water St., Peoria
Sully’s Pub & Cafe, 121 SW Adams St., Peoria
TNT’s, 3304 Meadows Ave., East Peoria
