Come Sunday, if you've had one too many Irish Coffees, definitely call a cab. But try to puke before or after you get in the taxi.
Why? Because it's gross and the cleaning fee will probably be more than your bar tab that night.
If you know yourself well enough to prepare for your potential bad behavior now, then perhaps you should jot down the phone number of Luxor Cabs; if you yack on one of their hacks, it figures to be substantially cheaper.
From 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Sunday/Monday, Luxor Cabs will be offering free rides anywhere in San Francisco for those of you trying to get home after celebrating at bars and restaurants. There is a catch: Riders have to remember to say the words "Berg Injury Lawyers," which is the program's sponsor, in order to get their free ride home. Also, the free ride is capped at $35 -- anything after that, you have to pay.
If you toss your cookies (or your Guinness) during your Luxor ride home, you'll still be on the hook for the $100 cleaning fee, says Lee Houskeeper, "old-time press agent" speaking on behalf of Luxor Cabs. But get this: The puker could conceivably deduct their $35 free ride from the total barf bill, Houskeeper says.
Some quick back-of-the-cocktail-napkin math says that, assuming you were using the entire $35 ride, then it would cost you only $65 if you puke.
And that's news you can really use.
