Uber, my favorite transportation app that connects you with drivers in your area to schedule a car service, finally launched in Miami on June 4th. It’s motto, “Moving People; tap a button, get picked up in minutes”, is an accurate description of the services this amazing company offers. Already a prevalent method of transportation in several big cities around the US such as NYC and San Francisco, Uber has had a hard time getting the State Legislature’s approval to launch in Miami as the taxi lobby has been pushing back. It’s been a long journey for Uber, but after months of lobbying and thousands of petitioners voicing their support, Miami joined the ranks of some 120 Uber-friendly cities around the world. As reported by the company’s official Blog, this new method of transportation will be “better, faster, and over 25% cheaper than a taxi.” If you still haven’t given Uber a shot, download the app and order your ride using my Uber code, mo692, to get $30 off your first journey.

Have you ever had a late night craving for fresh baked cookies? Crave no more! The beginning of January 2014 marked an important milestone in the development of Miami’s COOKIE scene. The infamous Insomnia Cookies, a late night treat delivery system, opened its doors to Miami Beach cookie fans earlier this year. The idea of delivering freshly baked goods after hours was born to a hungry student diligently working the night away at the University of Pennsylvania 10 years earlier. After gaining popularity around campus, this delectable concept expanded and today the business boasts 40 locations nationwide.
The Miami Beach joint delivers cookies till 3am and even has a special feature, The Cookie Tracker, which updates you on the status of your mouthwatering delivery. Place your order here and don’t forget to add a pint of milk before you check out to get the full Insomnia Cookies experience:
