If you need a taxi tonight, here two places you can call: Plainfield Taxi, 815-254-1992, 815-609-7533, www.plainfieldtaxi.com AAA Plainfield Express Taxi Cab, 815-436-2500, www.plainfieldtaxicab.com Also, this just in from MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving): "By dialing #TAXI (#-8-2-9-4) on any mobile phone, callers will be connected to the first available or preferred taxicab company in their local calling area. Callers don't even need to know the name of a cab company and the service helps avoid busy signals at peak times. #TAXI is available for $1.25 to $1.79 per call, depending on the wireless carrier and takes no money from taxi companies. #TAXI makes it easy to get home safely."
Service provides a ride home for folks who have over-imbibed -- and for their cars, too.

Paddy Wagon is a New Lenox-based service started by Kevin McTernan that sends two guys to pick up people who have "over-consumed" at a nightclub, wedding or party. One drives the tipsy person home in their own car, while the other fellow follows in a back-up car. "We never use the D-word," McTernan told me. Paddy Wagon will have two cars standing by to drive home customers who pony up for one of Limestone Brewing Company's New Year's Eve party packages, which range from $35 a person to $150 per couple, depending on whether you want finger food or a three-…
