Home Is Where the Heart Is
Hello Friends and Neighbors,
Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, so if you don’t feel like fighting the restaurant crowds or simply waited too long to make reservations, staying in can be an attractive alternative. Here is a list of convenient services sure to fit your schedule and warm your heart.
Breakfast in bed
Get a head start on this day of romance with an indulgent breakfast in bed, delivered by UberEATS so you can get some extra snuggle time in, of course. Donuts, muffins, or your favorite Eggs Benedict from that place that always has a mile-long line—the choice is yours!
Long distance love
Even if you and the one you love can’t be together, you can enjoy a dreamy date night dinner, complete with flowers, cloth napkins and music. It is all possible with a little help from UberEATS and your smartphone. Open your UberEATS app or visit our website and let them help make sparks fly this Valentine’s Day!
For the love of food (and flowers, chocolate, etc…)
Here is a tidbit you are sure to love: if you have Amazon Prime, your membership includes FREE Whole Foods delivery service (small fee for delivery under 2 hours).
