PERK ALERT

A Tiny Speaker with Ridiculous Power

RIDE ON

Taxis. With Mariachis in Them.

It’s been too long since you were driven in an SUV while being serenaded by a mariachi band. So Friday, tap the sombrero on the Uber app and await your chariot. You’ll be entertained en route, then dropped off with some margarita mix and a piñata. You can take it from there.
