Lawmakers were not able to push through legislation to allow Uber to come to upstate New York, but that is not stopping them from delivering free ice cream to the Capital this Friday. 

According to the Times Union, once a year, Uber allows patrons to order ice cream using the app to have it delivered to them for free! So even though they can't drive folks around here, they are making their presence know by delivering free Magnum ice cream bars.

So download the Uber app and get ready to use it this Friday. Yeah, maybe you can't get a ride somewhere but free ice cream isn't so bad.
