With Halloween Weekend being a big one for parties and alcohol consumption, local police and bars say they have plans in place to make sure people stay safe.
Barney's manager Adriana Longobardi says she and her staff members are expecting a big crowd for Halloween weekend.
"We plan for that," said Longobardi. "We plan extra staff, we want to get people their drinks served and just to have crowd control. It's nice to know that we're going to have an overload of people."
The Quincy Police Department will also be keeping a close eye out this weekend. Officer Kelly VanderMaiden says many people drink to celebrate the holiday.
"The weekend before Halloween, regular people have parties at their homes, some bars in town have parties, so we just recommend that you make a plan before you go out for the evening."
At Barney's, Longobardi says they'll be ready if someone has had too much to drink. She says bartenders make it a point to know their customers, so they can keep them from getting behind the wheel.
"That let's you know where this person's at, how much have they had to drink. Our bartenders cut people off. They'll give them a water. We really encourage DDs, we'll give them free soda."
At QPD, VanderMaiden says officers will be out this weekend, and she has a message for anybody thinking about taking a chance and driving home.
"It's never okay to drink and drive. For your safety, and the safety of others on the roadway it's just never a good idea to drink and get behind the wheel of a car."
Longobardi says another thing Barney's encourages is for their patrons to leave their cars overnight in their parking lot. She says it's not worth risking harm to yourself or others.
