A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures


Do you ever wish you could get take out from your favorite restaurant, but don’t want to get off your couch to go get it? Oh wait, they don’t deliver? Bummer!

Introducing Postmates! It’s a new delivery service in Boston, launching TODAY! With the app, users can request a driver or a bike messenger to pick up items at a restaurant (or a store) and it will be delivered in less than an hour. Postmates will serve Back Bay, Downtown, North End, South End, Cambridge and South Boston. What is unique about the app is that you will be able to track the progress of your delivery in real time. Delivery fees start at $5 but can be higher depending on distance.

Oh wait, it’s not just for take out – don’t have time to run out and get a charger from the Apple store? In the middle of a recipe and need one last ingredient from Whole Foods? Did your hand mixer die midway through your bake-a-thon? Postmates can help you out with all of those things!

I am offering my readers a special deal for $25 in delivery credit. It’s good towards the delivery fee only (not purchase price of goods) on future orders, and can roll over if not all used at once. Download the Postmates app for iOS or Android and enter the promo code (DGRUBS25) in the app.
