Something Different

#UberIceCream came to my office

Yelp posted that Uber car service was offering ice cream service if you request them between 11:00-5:00 on July 24.  If you are a Capital One card holder, you get the service for free.

Consider this an invitation to chill out. Your office probably doesn’t have a slip n’ slide, and running through the sprinklers likely won’t go over well with your boss. Don’t sweat it — you can still feel like a kid again by ordering ice cream on demand with #UberIceCream.

This Friday, July 24, 2015 we’re bringing a frozen favorite back for the fourth year in a row. This is a global promotion with local flavor, and it’s as simple as ever: Tap a button, and get a brain freeze in hundreds of cities around the world.

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM, AFTER ALL
Hours and pricing will vary in each city. Demand will be high and availability will be limited.

I have a Capital One card, and I also have an Uber account, so today after lunch I decided to request an Ice Cream delivery.  There was an Uber car just a few minutes away.

Ronald drove up in a white Altima with blue “#UberIceCream” flags, indicating he was the Uber Ice Cream car.  He gave me an Uber hat and pin, and asked me how many ice creams I would like.  They were the dipping dots, and I could have increments of 5, so I could have 5, 10, or 15 bags.  I chose 10 and shared them with my coworkers, as I am not really a fan of ice cream or dipping dots.

He reached into a large cooler in his back seat and took out an assortment of Dipping Dots, and even gave us spoons.  It was a pretty nice change of event for a Friday afternoon, and my coworkers got a refreshing treat, too. Thanks, Uber!
