You Veuve, I Veuve
I can’t believe it’s taken me a few years to be on board with the Veuve train, but on October 14th, a heated, summer afternoon, an annual tradition is established.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Will Roger’s Park has become an LA institution synonymous with celebrity culture and Champagne imbibers. Rubbing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio and Dev Patel are just some of the happy coincidences that may occur as you swirl your glasses and twirl your languid bodies across the grassy meadows. Then a polo match steadfastly unfolds in the horizon. An instrumental clamor takes over as the match comes to a gradual, blissful end.
It’s a fun and celebratory time for all. As the drinks continue to flow and the DJ beats to slowly dissipate in the background, you suddenly realize that there is not a care in the world. Why? Because you and your amazing friends took an uberXL there, a reliable ride that could easily accommodate 6 in a span of one trip. Then there’s the split fare and multiple destinations, which we certainly took advantage of en route to the Pacific Palisades. Saving time and saving money — what’s not to like? It’s the little things in life that makes all the difference, because life is not worth living if it’s only getting from point A to point B. There’s also C, D and F too!
When that last glass of rosé is poured, I can rest easy knowing that the group will be safely transported back to our respective homes and other final destinations. It’s not worth drinking and driving, after all, no matter how “responsibly” one may have been sipping. The margin for error is so minuscule when libations are involved. This Halloween and holiday season I foresee myself and my friends using uberXL to parties and special occasions more than ever before, thanks to its efficiency and unique features catered to larger group settings! It’s going to be one lit season.
A very special thanks to Uber for making this story possible. Images, words and experiences are entirely my own, but you really can't make any of this up anyway. Please ride responsibly!
Do you use uber yourself?
