In partnership with Uber
Post deadline, post working week, the RUSSH editors took a moment to catch up over brunch. With a view of the ocean in our periphery and the weak winter sun washing down on us, all we needed to complete the picture was a round of coffee and breakfast to chow down on.
When the conversation is flowing, who wants to leave the party to go out in search of food? Not us. Instead, Elyssa, Cassandra and I pulled out our phones and decided to get brunch delivered on Uber Eats. Our cafe of choice? Blackwood in Cronulla, recommended for its unique spin on the classics. We went with zucchini and corn fritters, a spicy bacon and egg roll and the cafe's signature morning glory plate, along with a trio of freshly pressed juices.
Now let me preface, this is a team that fights over the bill; cards fly from all directions, there's wrestling and veiled threats – it's not pretty. However, with Uber Eats we needn't descend into a chaotic squabble. The group order function makes it so that Elyssa, Cassandra and I can each pick our own dishes on our individual screens and split the cost between us in just a few simple clicks.
In other social scenarios, I imagine the group order function on Uber Eats would cancel out any awkward conversations, ensure no one gets lumped with a hefty bill, and save time on sharing bank details and transferring cash. Think about it. Next time you're on vacation with your friends, use the group order function to divvy up your groceries and prevent extra shops. Having a movie night with pals? Chuck all your snack preferences into one order.
The delivery arrived in no time at all, which sat well with my grumbling belly. The best part? We could dig in as soon as our orders hit the table. No frantic transferring while our food gets cold. All that's left to do is enjoy each other's company.
