Close your eyes and picture yourself on some beach in the Bahamas. Sand tickles your toes as warm blue water laps at your ankles. In your hand is a seriously refreshing rum-soaked cocktail. You're in paradise. Now open your eyes and take in your dreary cubicle. Unfortunately, you're still in Miami. Or are you?
Tomorrow evening, Uber and Bahama Breeze want to make your Caribbean fantasies a reality — and you don't have to hop a flight or even spend any money.
This Friday, September 23, from 4 to 9 p.m., three limited-edition Bahama Breeze x Uber jeeps will hit the streets of Miami with a mission to bring a bit of the Bahamas to some lucky riders.
These decked-out fun-mobiles will be available to take guests to the Kendall Bahama Breeze (12395 SW 88th St., Miami).

Once inside this party on wheels, you'll be treated to tropical mocktails, Caribbean jams, swag, and a free ride to the restaurant. Once you arrive at Bahama Breeze, you'll receive a free tasting of three Rumtoberfest alcoholic drinks and an appetizer of the restaurant's new rum-and-Coke ribs.
To get in on the fun, select UberEscapeMIA in the Uber app. If you're chosen, you'll be whisked away in this colorful vehicle for a night of food, drinks, and music. It's the next best thing to being in Nassau.
Miami is the only market in the nation to offer a ride in these Bahama Breeze x Uber mobiles (maybe because, at just 50 miles to Bimini, the Magic City is the closest to the Bahamas). In any event, it's a better deal than your usual Friday night of Netflix and stale beer.
