Free Car Rides, SoulCycle Classes and Cocktails Hit Brooklyn This Weekend
WILLIAMSBURG — Even if you can't escape the city this weekend, you can take a mini-getaway to another Brooklyn neighborhood — with a free private ride carting you from one drink deal to the next.
The taxi-tracking app Uber is serving up complimentary rides up to $20 to, from, or around Brooklyn starting at noon Friday.
Straphangers can type in the code "BKLOVESuberX" on the Uber app for free rides in a hybrid or mid-range car from the company, and then they can tap into deals including a free cycling class at SoulCycle, two-for-one concert tickets at the venue Cameo Gallery, and a free boozy slushy from the bar Pork Slope.
Free shaved ice from People's Pops, a whiskey tasting from the Whiskey Shop and a complimentary entry to the pool at King and Grove Hotel are also on the list of special deals for riders who show their Uber receipts.
More details on the specials can be found on Uber's blog.
