Beat the heat: Uber offers ice cream delivery Friday

It’s supposed to top 80 tomorrow in Seattle, but if you’re feeling the heat, you can get ice cream delivered from your smart phone.

Uber is offering on-demand ice cream delivery in 33 cities worldwide tomorrow, including Seattle and San Francisco.

To order an ice cream truck, select ice cream in the Uber app between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. tomorrow, and it will try to find you a nearby ice cream truck to make a delivery.

Offerings will differ by location, but any delivery includes complimentary “Uber swag,” in whatever form that happens to take.

If you’re looking for a cheap ice cream fix, though, you’re better off getting it some other way. Getting a frozen treat through Uber will cost you $30 for five people.

To look up whether your city is on the list of available cities, check Uber’s blog post about the service. If you miss out on it tomorrow, though, tough luck. Uber ice cream is only available for one day.
