You had to both drive to a car, both valet your car.

It was nothing, it was a complete wasteland out there.

[In New York] I used to wake up to texts from my friends being like, “Hey we’re at the bar downstairs,” and in L. it’s like, if you’re gonna do something, you’ve gotta plan where you’re gonna meet, all Uber together …
