Toronto bar offering free drinks to designated drivers

Should saintly designated drivers have to shell out cash for rounds of Diet Coke while their friends go wild slinging back tequila shots? One Toronto bar says no.

On Saturday, Little Italy's Night Owl announced on Facebook that it'd be offering up free non-alcoholic beverages to designated drivers. "We shouldn't have to profit off of your decision to be responsible. Thank you for being safe," reads the post.

"If you're going to be the responsible one, I feel like you shouldn't have to wait for a drink, you shouldn't have to pay for a drink and you should be proud that you're doing the right thing," says Night Owl owner Braden Rubinoff.

Rubinoff notes that DDs can get pop and non-alcoholic cocktails - such as Caesars and mojitos - for free. He wants them to feel like they can party with their friends without feeling drink-less and out-of-place.

Along with this new policy, Night Owl recently introduced taco Thursdays, a $16.99 all-you-can-eat affair.

Which other Toronto bars offer free drinks to designated drivers? Let us know in the comments.
