I am particularly thrilled to see many screenings are scheduled at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

@uber @lyft or @dwi Yep! DWI.

Uber decided to splurge price people for new years. Be sure to check your statement asap. You may miss rent!

One passenger noted he may take his chances next year and invest in a #dwi! Of course drinking and driving is a no go but I feel the sentiment!

If uber drove me from #nyc to #La I think I could get a better deal than almost 3k! Fyi this was a local ride! #ouch!! #lyft #uber #rideshare #racket

Who do you use? I know #logangreen so I only use #lyft
