HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY, Uber Chicago!!  Thank you Uber Chicago clients, drivers, and team for making our first year a smashing success!  About four months ago, I left Wall Street to join Uber Chicago as Operations Manager.  I am responsible for supply planning (getting cars on the road) and supply quality (making sure the drivers are PRO and the vehicles are top-notch).  Here’s to another super awesome year for Uber Chicago, and more so, to our ROCKSTAR clients and dedicated drivers who have made us as successful as we are today!!

From the desk of: Kenny Tsai, Operations Manager:

I joined team Uber Chicago at the end of last year. Within these short 10 months, responses from people I meet went from, “What does Uber do?” to “Awesome, I Uber all the time!” We work hard as a team to provide quality transportation to the City of Chicago, and appreciate all the positive support from our growing community. As Operations Manager for Chicago, my responsibility is to make sure things run smoothly and that we provide the best possible experience to our clients.I’ve lived in 7 different neighborhoods in Chicago – West Loop isn’t one of them – but it might be next! I’m a big food guy, and there’s tons of great restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.

Save 50% on BLACK car rides to/from the West Loop area on Wednesday with promo code CHIANNY12.

South Branch Tavern and Grille:

South Branch is the place to be for beautiful sweeping views of the river and city skyline in West Loop. Dine on savory and distinctive American fare with one of their craft beers and your night is made!

RM Champagne Salon:

Even though RM just opened a few months ago in February 2012, it has quickly become the spot for a glass of champagne or wine. Sip on glass alongside a savory cheese, tea sandwiches and canapés, petit fours, pastries and mignardises.

Piccolo Sogno: 

If you’ve never taken a date a first date to the outdoor patio of Piccolo, well then, you’ve probably never had a successful first date. Plus, it’s the best Italian food in the city, and nothing better than pasta, red wine and eating in their amazing garden.

Market:

Market are awesome Uber friends, and they have the best rooftop in the city. The view of Chicago is bar none. It’s also a great stop along the way to any United Center event.
