Wearing a lampshade? Don't drive.

This last year saw a slew of celebrities collared for driving under the influence -- so many that Sean "Diddy" Combs claimed to be launching a car service for tipsy A-listers back in March. It goes without saying that drunk driving well surpasses a breach of etiquette. And no friend should ever be put in the awkward position of having to hide someone's keys after last call. If you plan to imbibe, call a cab or a car service at the end of the night. A taxi from the Sunset Strip to Santa Monica will run you about $35.
