Glasses will be clinking all over Houston this weekend.

It’s time to toast St. Patrick’s Day, and March Madness, while bidding farewell to RodeoHouston and spring break. In short, it’s time to drink.

Just consider these frothy numbers, supplied by Guinness. On St. Patrick’s Day alone:

  • 153 percent more beer is sold
  • 819 percent more Guinness is consumed
  • 13 million pints of Guinness will be consumed worldwide
  • $40 will be spent by the average partier

Planning ahead for the laughing-to-crying-spells, drunk texts, and — most importantly — inebriated drivers, the folks at Crown Royal and Lyft are doing Houston partiers a solid.

The companies are giving away up to $20,000 worth of Lyft rides this weekend, from midnight, Saturday, March 17th, through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 18.

Enter code CROWNRIDES in the promos section of the Lyft app, to redeem a $10 ride discount (again: from midnight, Saturday, March 17th through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 18.)

The voucher is only eligible for rides taken inside the Houston Metro area.
