Can’t Hear an Ice Cream Truck? Just Uber One

If you’re looking forward to National Ice Cream Day on Sunday but there’s no way you can get through today’s miserable heat index, relax, just Uber an ice cream truck.

Yep. The guys that made hailing a cab seem like a Betamax VCR are making it so that all you have to do is request “Ice Cream” on Uber’s iPhone or Android app today until 5 p.m. You don’t even need cash. It’ll be charged to your Uber account.

After the clock strikes 5, the Uber folks request your presence at an ice cream social outside Smith Commons (1245 H Street NE) until 6 p.m. for frozen dairy treats, swag and “an Uber-themed drink!”

This is what we all live for.
