Dash said to be cognizant of what’s going on around you. Take a picture of where you parked your car, and make sure valuables are put away.
“Obviously, we’re very excited to be hosting a night primetime game,” Dash said. “It’s going to be a huge celebration, especially if we win. Keep in mind, be responsible. Do not drink and drive. Have your designated driver. Ride shares are available if you plan to participate.”
