If you spend any time around teenagers, you may be familiar with Uber, the car service that you can order from your smartphone. With only a tap of your phone, you -- or your teenager -- can order a swank car and private driver, at a cost that's not as bad as you'd think, with the whole transaction accomplished via credit card and cell phone. This Friday, your kid can not only order a ride home -- she can order an ice cream truck. Awesome.
This Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Uber will provide ice cream trucks in 33 cities around the world. So if you're reading this in Singapore right now, make sure you download the app and you can get some ice cream driven right to your location, like at the Pizzeria Mozza on Bayfront Avenue. Lucky you. If you use the Uber app here in Los Angeles, you can get Carvel ice cream sandwiches delivered, six of them for $36. You can also get a free ride, or at least a free ride that covers up to $20, if you've never used Uber before and you sign up for it using the promo code ICECREAM. Interested parties can sign up at uber.com/go.More »
