  • Need a lift out of there Saturday? Lyft has you covered.
There are three main issues all Soulard Mardi Gras attendees must face:

1. How to get a ride home safely.
2. How to get your phone to work.
3. Where to pee.

But now ride-sharing company Lyft is vowing to help you with at least the first two concerns. Not only is Lyft going to set up two free WiFi hotspots in Soulard this Saturday, so you can request a ride when you’re finished gathering beads, they’re also providing a promo code for $10 off your first Lyft home.

The WiFi spots will be based at Gravois and Tucker and at Tucker and Lafayette. If you get within 200 feet or less, you should see them listed as “#LyftMardiGras” in your phone’s WiFi options. No password is required to connect.

Once you’re online, the code "SOULARD19” will hook you up with that $10 discount so you can get home safely and head straight to tinkle town.

Have fun out there and be safe this weekend.
