Uber and Tamale Lady Heat Up the Mission Bar Scene
Virginia Ramos knows a thing or two about a well-timed arrival. She’s spent the past 20 years dropping in on local bars and surprising patrons with delicious tamales, lovingly baked from her grandma’s recipe — but we think her tamales are too tasty to be kept under wraps.
This Friday, Uber and the elusive Tamale Lady are joining forces to satisfy all of your Mexican food cravings. Free on-demand tamales? Now that’s hot.
Here’s how it works:
- Open your app in select parts of the Mission and the Lower Haight and toggle over to Tamale Lady
- Promotion will be available on Friday, September 13, from 8 p.m. until we run out of delicious tamales
- There’s only one Virginia, so if you see a grayed-out icon and can’t get tamales right away, please keep trying
- All food (and hugs from Tamale Lady) will be 100% *FREE*
Now that your tamale fantasies are coming true, please help Virginia fulfill her own dream of opening a brick-and-mortar store in the Mission. Donate to her indiegogo page to ensure that there’s mas masa in all of our futures — and tweet the campaign link with the hashtag #TamaleLady to spread the word.
San Francisco, your tamales are arriving now.
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.
