It’s a match made in heaven. Cheap, tasty drinks combined with swanky, safe, reliable rides? Yup. This week we’re combining forces with Yelp to bring you the best happy hour ever, every single day.
Our friends at Yelp have chosen 12 awesome drinks venues for you to get your drink on this week, with 50% off a variety of great cocktails and beer. And be the envy of the bar when you show up rocking our special deal: your first ride this week to or from any Yelp Drinks venue is 50% off, too.
Here’s what you need to do to rock your 50%-off ride and show up in style:
- Apply the promo code YELPDRINKSDC on Uber.com or in the Uber iPhone/Android app.
- Scope out this sweet menu of tasty libations.
- Request an Uber going to or from any of these venues and enjoy 50% off your first ride this week (and then 50% off your drinks!).
Don’t forget: the discount only applies to your first ride this week, but we’ll be here for you every single day. Cheers!
P.S. We’ll be making the rounds this week at some of these Drinks Week venues, too. Keep your eyes peeled and say hi!
Happy Mardi Gras, DC!
It’s party time, and there’s really no better time than now to sign up for Uber! In celebration of everyone’s favorite Tuesday, we’re offering a one day only code for new users to get $15 off their first ride. Use promo code MARDIGRASDC so you can party in style and convenience (and get home safe!) this Fat Tuesday.
Tell your friends and spread the Uber love on Twitter using the hashtags #UberDCLove and #MardiGras, and on Facebook!
It’s been an awesome day in the UBERcade! Check out the video recap.
President’s Day is almost over, and the UBERcade has gone home for the night, but we’ve got a fantastic video recap! Check it out, below.
Admit it, you’ve dreamed about riding in the Presidential motorcade at least once. Now that we’re in DC, we’re dedicated to bringing you as much of that Presidential experience as we can, every time you ride.
This Monday, President’s Day, we’re stepping up our game.
Monday is your chance to feel just as baller as Barack, rolling around town in your very own Uber motorcade: the UBERcade!
Everyone who requests an Uber this Monday will get a convenient and classy ride, like always. But a few lucky riders may get a ride in the UBERcade, featuring three Uber Secret Service agents and two Suburbans flanking a sleek black town car. We can’t clear traffic, and we may not have tear gas, bulletproof armor, or a backup oxygen system in the trunk like B.O. does, but we guarantee that this Monday you’re going to turn some heads as you roll through town in your UBERcade.
* Note: this motorcade does not come with sirens. ;-)
UPDATE: Bonus! All rides in the #UBERcade today are FREE. Get riding!
This Valentine’s Day we asked for your best and worst pickup lines and boy did you guys deliver. Below are a few of our favorites—starting with @AndrewJGibbons, our top pick and the winner of a free Uber ride!
Hi my name is Andrew and I can get a black car here in 5 minutes but what are we going to do for 5 minutes? #UberDCLove— Andrew Gibbons (@AndrewJGibbons) February 15, 2012
Do you have any raisins? …No? How about a date? #uberdclove— Scott Lanford (@ScottLanford) February 15, 2012

The Uber DC office is celebrating a birthday this week and we want you to celebrate with us!
Alex, everyone’s favorite Uber DC community manager, turns another year older on Thursday, February 9th. To celebrate, we made a special promo code that gives any new Uber rider $10 off their first ride.
Promo code: HAPPYBDAYALEX
But there’s more! Alex loves Twitter, but he wants more @Uber_DC Twitter friends. If @Uber_DC passes 2,000 followers by Thursday, we’ll give anyone $5 off one ride that day. Spread the word because we’re spreading the birthday love! Tweet using the #happybdayalex hashtag.
You’ve got two days! Tell your friends, go follow @Uber_DC, and wish Alex a very Uber birthday. :)
Don’t treat on Uber. #UberDCLove from @BallardCT.
Every @Uber_DC driver I have had has wrangled these and helped me in and out of the car, making my frequent trips to the doctor a pleasure instead of a hassle. #UBERDCLOVE <3, from @mazzie.
