From the desk of Nicole Cillette, Community Manager

Uber has done some amazing things in the past year. Being a brand new edition to the team makes me so psyched for a second year of even bigger and better things! As a Community Manager, I spend my time making sure the members of the Uber community are happy and being taken care of, as well as getting the word out around town about Uber in new and creative ways. 

I’m a resident of the Lakeview/Lincoln Park/Old Town area, so you’ll definitely see my frequenting the establishments below (feel free to come and say hi!) I love the friendly, warm neighborhood feel of the my ‘hood while it still maintains that distinctive Chicago city culture.

Use promo code CHIANNY12 to get 50% off your BLACK car ride to/from the Lakeview/Lincoln Park/Old Town area on Tuesday from 6pm-Midnight
