i8217;ve been staying in a lot lately, cooking at home, reading, hanging with Justin and generally just laying low. between planning the wedding and recovering from the wedding things have been pretty chill at our house. which i love, but it8217;s also fun to mix it up, and i felt like it was time for a night out on the town! since i haven8217;t been to the magic castle (a classic LA spot!!) in many years (and justin has never been!), i really wanted to surprise justin and his cousin blake with a magical evening there! it8217;s one of those secret club type places where a magician has to invite you, you enter through a bookcase, you dress fancy and have cocktails, there are no photos allowed inside, and you sort of feel transported in time when you arrive. there are little magic shows in small cave-like rooms, card tricks happening at the bars, and an overall fun, kitchy feeling.
so, we made a whole night of it, drank martinis at home while we got dressed up, requested an Uber Black trip (which made it feel like a celebration from the second we left!), and had such a wonderful time with close friends and family!
you really do feel relaxed in an Uber Black, so there are a few occasions i like to splurge on one. they are great for meetings across town when i need to work during traffic. they8217;ve added some new premium features, like the ability to request a 8220;Silent Ride8221; so you reduce distractions while you are on your way. i like to take them on early morning trips to the airport so i can feel relaxed and calm before a long flight or job (they are usually stocked with water and snacks, chargers, and music controls). you can also request Temperature Preference from your phone and also request Luggage Support before your driver even arrives which is great for people like me who are anxious travelers and like to be in control.
after a few drinks, a ton of magic, and a lot of laughter, we made it home safe thanks to Uber Black. and sang ain8217;t no mountain high enough while possibly driving the driver nuts. although, i think i caught him signing along, so maybe he loved it. thanks for always getting us out of the house and on town town, Uber!
