Every college student's wildest dream is about to come true this week. Because on Thursday, May 5, Uber will deliver free burros and lemonade from Someburros in Tempe starting at 11 a.m.
Someburros Burros On Demand is a relatively simple concept. On May 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., open the Uber app and select the “BURROS” option at the bottom of the screen. Hit "REQUEST BURROS," and you’ll shortly receive a conformation call from an Uber rep.
A few house rules: An “order” is one Someburros bean and cheese burrito, and one Hubert’s Lemonade. There is a limit of two orders per request, which can only be made in Tempe. And pro tip: If your request is unsuccessful, try again, as demand will be pretty high. Deliveries run till 2 p.m., or till the burros run out.
But this being Cinco de Mayo, booze obviously has to be involved. So if free burros aren’t your deal, or if you’re not in Tempe, head into any one of six Someburros locations in metro Phoenix to get half off margaritas all Cinco de Mayo long.
