If you plan on hitting the many St. Patty's Day-friendly bars along Main Street in Santa Monica--or wherever you go--be smart and be safe. Considering the holiday, police across the region will be on the lookout for the overly inebriated. Tomorrow night, the Santa Monica Police Department will host a party of their own (translation: drivers license and DUI Checkpoint) on the 300 block of Pico Boulevard. "This is the first of several checkpoints to be conducted over the next 12-month period," a news release warned. The department was mum on what time the checkpoint will begin and end. Update: There's a checkpoint in Hollywood, info is here.
