So last night we had a few adult beverages and left our rental downtown Naples instead of driving with a buzz on. Dialed up UBER on the cell phone and got home safely.  I’ll never understand people who refuse to take cabs or, now, UBER instead of driving drunk. 

Here’s our sweet UBER car that picked us up this morning to go retrieve the rental car-


But anyway I took a video of my screen on my cell phone which shows exactly how it works and why seeing exactly where your car is and the type of car that’s picking you up and your driver’s UBER rating is so cool.

Watch the video of how it all works here-

Most of you who follow us know that we present concerts just down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre (among other venues).

This summer we’ll also be presenting concerts at The Cabot — and the first one we’ve put on sale is John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band with special guest Charlie Farren on Friday, July 31 — and it’s helping us answer two questions at once: “When are you bringing John Cafferty back?” and “When are you bringing Charlie Farren back?”

We figured this summer was the perfect time to party at The Cabot with these 2 high-energy rock stars, who haven’t performed together on stage for years.

It’s an All Ages show with reserved seats starting at only $25.  Get your tickets now (RIGHT HERE) because this show will sell quickly!
