Summertime screams for ice scream, and so do we, because nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day like a some solid crème glacée.
Today, all of Montreal is getting ice cream, delivered right to your door, office, or spot in that park, all thanks to Uber, Montreal's premiere cab-calling app.
Only for today, July 18th, Uber will be driving around town handing out ice cream, between the hours of 11am and 5pm. All you gotta do is open Uber, tap on the "Ice Cream" option, and in minutes you'll be enjoying some quality Montreal-made Le Bilboquet ice cream.
Don't even worry about having cash on you, as your ice cream bill will go straight to your Uber account. No stress about ordering either, as for only $25 you get 5 ice creams and some complimentary Uber swag. All you gotta do is sign up, use the promo code: ICECREAMMTLBLOG and $20 off your first ice cream delivery or taxi ride.
A pretty large chunk of Montreal will be in the delivery zone, going north to Jean-Talon, east to Iberville, west to Highway 15/Decarie, and south all the way to the Lachine Canal. For a visual, here's a handy map.
Uber, for all those who don't know yet, is a mobile smartphone app that gets you where you need to go, anytime and anywhere. Functioning kind of like a personal taxi service, Uber uses your personal location and finds the nearest available taxi/van/Escalade (for real) to drive you to your destination.
Best about Uber is the fact that drivers are tracked in real-time, giving you a legit timeframe of when your car will arrive to pick you up. Plus, no money is ever needed, as its all charged to your Uber account, making those stressful times without cash at 3am and your need to get home a nonexistent problem.
