If your Thanksgiving celebrations end with a toast - or a few - make a call for a "Tipsy Tow" service.

AAA and the Beverage Alcohol Community Information Council (BACIC) are offering Tipsy Tow service beginning 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23 through 6 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 24.

"The Wednesday before Thanksgiving has become a popular night for Arizona's bars and restaurants," said Steve Chucri, chairman of BACIC. "Providing patrons with an easy way - like Tipsy Tow - to make a responsible decision is always incredibly important, especially during the holidays."

To take advantage of Tipsy Tow, drivers, passengers, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should call (800) AAA-HELP (222-4357) during the service. Ask for a "tipsy tow." Provide the driver's name, home address, phone number and location.

Tipsy Tow provides free one-way ride for the driver, one passenger and their vehicle, up to 10 miles. Motorists will not be towed to another drinking establishment or destination other than their home. A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorist is, or plans to become, a guest. Tipsy Tow does not include AAA Roadside Assistance. For trips longer than 10 miles, motorists will be charged the towing company's standard rate.
