The app was designed and built by me, Tyler, as a side project to explore a fun way to utilize Uber's new ride request API functionality. I'd love your feedback.

The app combines Yelp and Uber to take you to a highly rated bar. Input your location, Uber whisks you to a random (but always top Yelp-rated) bar, which isn't revealed until Uber drops you off. Enjoy the adventure and try to guess where you're headed. It even checks to make sure the bar is open so it works on Saturday morning...I won't judge.

@tylerswartz can I request Foursquare support?

@tylerswartz this sounds like a lot of fun ๐Ÿ˜†. Have you given it a go? What was it like?

@bcjordan Yes, even after spending so much time building it I was surprised at how much fun it was to try and guess what bar I was headed to in the Uber. Also, the Uber driver started guessing when I explained that I didn't know what bar was at the end of the coordinates he had.

This is awesome. You could add in other random services to the adventure like restaurants & Airbnb for a whole weekend experience.
