Restaurant Week Begins, and Safe Rides Are Available

Culinaria’s Restaurant Week begins Aug. 16, and that’s a cause for celebration, especially given the large list of participants this year.

Kirby's  Prime Steakhouse


If you celebrate too much, you don’t need to drive home, though.

Culinaria has teamed up with Uber to provide safe and convenient rides for patrons enjoying dinner at any of the participating restaurants.

What’s Uber?

Uber is a technology company that created an app that seamlessly connects users with a personal driver at the tap of a button via their smartphone. Transactions are frictionless, ETAs are transparent, and route tracking is a breeze. It’s simply the easiest, cheapest, and most efficient way to move around town.
