San Franciscans! If you’re out at the club, on a date, or at your favorite dinner spot, you’re going to need a classy, comfortable way to get around. Taxis have become the unicorns of San Francisco, so Uber is stepping up, providing on demand, reliable black car service from the touch of your phone. You simply hit a button (via the Uber iPhone or Android app or SMS/text message) and a Town Car or SUV is dispatched to your destination. All payment is charged to your credit card, so there’s no tipping and no cash to deal with. And if you have the app, you can watch your driver’s location on the map as he comes to fetch you! For about twice the price of a taxi, this experience is a no-brainer. San Franciscans/Peninsula peeps: rejoice!

Rainy weather got you down? Hopefully this will help: Uber is giving tablehopper readers a $20 voucher to apply to your first ride! All you need to do is go to uber.com and sign up, use the promo code “tablehopper” and $20 will be credited to your account. Be sure to sign up by April 25th in order to get the credit to your account, but you can ride any time. And just in case you have any questions, please contact support@uber.com for assistance.
