Summertime (Uber) CHI – Kickoff Party
It’s Summer in Chicago! Bust out your white pants, hit up the neighborhood street fest, and lean into patio season. Alright, forget the white pants, but how ’bout an Uber #NeonOnNeon tank?
To celebrate the next three months of outdoor partying, Uber wants to have a drink with you. The first annual Uber Summer Kickoff will be held at Market in West Loop on Wednesday, June 13th. We’ve got some awesome sponsors (Gentlemen Jack, 312 and Grey Goose!) providing a ton of free booze, and top Uber client DJ Rock City will be spinning live. Plus, we’ll be rockin’ those Uber neon tanks we can’t stop talking about!
Today we’re also announcing Uber Intramurals. We know Chicago has some serious Intramural fanatics, and we think it’s only right to get involved. For any team that we sponsor, you’ll get some free rides this summer, and of course a neon tank for everyone on your team. Just note – if you get a tank, it’s required wear at our our Kickoff party, North Avenue Beach, and Lolla!
As always if you need anything, just tweet @Uber_CHI, or even better, come party with us next Wednesday! If you don’t come, well, hopefully you’ll hear the roars echoing down Randolph Street :).
We’re excited to launch Payment Rewards — a way to discover, track, and redeem rewards right in the Uber app. We’re kicking it off with Capital One®, where every 10th ride is free (up to $15) when you pay with a Quicksilver® or QuicksilverOne® card through March 2017.
Today, I’m excited to announce that Arianna Huffington will join Uber’s board. For those of us who know Arianna, it’s clear she knows a thing or two about being an entrepreneur. As the founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, she’s built one of the most successful, innovative media companies in the world… from scratch. […]
