PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – From kittens to Christmas tree deliveries, Uber has provided Philadelphians with more than just a ride to and from the bar.

Now, the car service company has teamed up with Geno’s Steaks to offer one lucky Uber user and 19 of his/her friends a tailgating party for the Big Game on February 2nd.

The winner and a group of friends and family will not only receive 20 Geno’s cheesesteaks (“wiz wit, of course”), party snacks, drinks from Red Bull and team gear; they’ll also get a visit from Eagles’ linebacker Connor Barwin.

To enter the contest, Philly Uber users can log in to the Uber app on Jan. 31st and enter the code “UBERTAILGATE.”

One person will be randomly selected as the winner on Saturday, and that person will see a special Tailgate icon in their Uber app on Sunday.

From there, the winner can request an Uber car and the party will be on its way.

And with tickets to the game going for thousands and the forecast looking pretty cold, a Philly-based tailgating party with the comforts of home is looking better and better.
