Uber Brings the Happy to Happy Hour
Tuesday night’s Uber Happy Hour at the St. Regis Hotel was the place to be! We set out to have a casual happy hour with 20 – 30 riders and ended up hosting a LEGIT PARTY for a few hundred of our most loyal riders!!! ;) While enjoying a few cocktails on us, the Uber enthusiasts were chatting & sharing thoughts on the most coveted Uber features. By the end of the night, folks were even circling up and showing off their dance moves…yes seriously, at a tech party.
As our friend and loyal Uber’er Jon said in a tweet, that may become infamous…
This was Uber’s first meet-up, happy hour, or party & we were seriously overwhelmed by the support from all of YOU. We’re working hard to make sure that people are having a blast when they use Uber, and we intend to hold more shin-diggs like these to connect with you all! Stay tuned here on the blog for future meet-up/party info.
Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who came out, it was a rockin’ time. We <3 you even more in person! And for all of you who didn’t make it (slackers)…everyone deserves a second chance, so we may throw another party just for you…but at a dive bar. No St. Regis for you!
Finally, check out video footage of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick taking the mic:
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
