I don’t know about you, but this is pretty life changing for a New Yorker. It’s like when you look back and don’t know how you ever survived without Ubers – how did we eat before Seamless and Grubhub (you know Grubhub owns Seamless now, right?)?

Why is this so important? Because you can literally say, I have zero interest in cooking dinner tomorrow night and own it. You can pick up your phone and plan for a delicious 5-course meal (or just Mexican street tacos) to miraculously show up at your doorstep at exactly 6pm.
