Get into the holiday spirit with UberCAROLS and Macarons On-Demand

This Friday will be one of the biggest nights in Sydney’s social calendar, and many of you will turn to Uber to find a ride home when taxis are scarce. Now we’ve invented one more reason to be Uber.

This Friday from 12-5pm, we will be delivering choirs to sing carols at workplaces, backyards and beaches across Sydney on-demand. If three festive tunes from Sydney’s best choristers at full volume aren’t enough to lift the spirits in your workplace, the choirs will also be carrying a dozen seasonal Adriano Zumbo ‘Zumbarons.’

All this for just $50, making you instantly the coolest kid in your office (or the most hated.)

[h2 class=”” span=””]What is Uber?[/h2]

UBER is an app that allows everyone to have a private driver experience with their smart phone. Simply press a button on your phone, watch your car drive to you on the map, and within a matter of minutes, you’ll be on your way. Your credit card is on file, so there’s no need to carry cash. At the end of the ride we’ll email you a detailed receipt. In Sydney, you can request a choice of three rides:

  • TAXI – Request a regular Sydney cab, without zero credit card surcharge.
  • BLACK – A classy unmarked Caprice for 20-30% more than a taxi.
  • LUX – High-end BMW, Audi and Mercedes vehicles for special occasions.

New users can sign up with the promotion code SYDNEY20 for $20 off their first ride in Sydney before the end of 2013.

[h2 class=”” span=””]Who is Zumbo?[/h2]

Adriano Zumbo the ‘sweet assassin’ is no ordinary patissier. His creations elicit admiration from critics and the public alike and for good reason; they’re unique in concept and execution – quite simply, you won’t find anything else quite like it in Australia. ‘Zumbo’ became a household name after appearing on hit TV show Masterchef Australia as a guest judge in 2009. He was also a judge in 2010 and 2011 and is known for his technically challenging desserts.
