With all the pandemonium of New Year’s Eve (I don’t think you’ve really lived in the Twin Cities until you’ve been stranded in the downtown chaos of Jan 1st at 2am), we unfortunately have to disable a couple of our ordering systems.

We apologize for the inconvenience these lack of services will cause tonight, but we will bring the systems back up first thing on January 1st.  We thank you all for your patience, and your continued business.

Also, be sure to check out our very own Jeremy Kramer on the Channel 5 News @ 6 tonight!

We hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.  There are many exciting things ahead in 2013, and we look forward to getting you there.

Cheers!

Happy Spring, everyone!  We hope you’ve all had a wonderful hibernation.  Now that the snow (what little we’ve had) is gone, and summer is around the corner, it’s time to get out and enjoy the city again!

We’re looking to establish a new service for those who would like a little more comfort and luxury to help make their trip extra special.  We’ve been working with the fine people at Minneapolis 5 Star Limo to help promote their wonderful service.

They provide a multitude of transportation vehicles for any occasion, at rates that won’t make your head spin. Plus, with their dedication to quality service, you can rest assured that you will have a great experience.

So check out their site at Minneapolis 5 Star Limo.

Call for reservations at 612-205-8132.

 

 

 

 

The official 1st Annual Twin Cities Urban Music Awards is tonight at the Epic Lounge in Minneapolis. Doors open at 9.

Blue&White’s own Donald Adams is up for both producer of the year and graphic artist of the year, as the mastermind behind Midwest Meltdown Products. You can check out MMDP’s music on their official site..

Come on out and show your support tonight at Epic. We’ll see you there!

We’re trying out a new online service for you all. One of our most veteran and experienced taxi cabs, #111, happens to be one of those hybrid electric Toyota Prius vehicles. For those who would prefer the hybrid, or would just like another method of ordering, we’ve made an online booking form available for you.

Click here for our hybrid service.

We appreciate all your feedback on this service, so please let us know at customersupport@blueandwhitetaxi.com.

Thaaaaaaaanks!

We wanted to let everybody know that tomorrow our website will effectively be shut down for 12 hours from 7am CST to 7pm CST. The reason for this being in accordance with the SOPA Internet Strike set for January 18th. All online ordering and customer service systems will be unavailable during this. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we feel the SOPA/PIPA bills are a rather serious matter that could have a dramatic negative impact on the future of internet technologies and web business. Because of this, we are doing what we can to show our support against these bills.

For more information on these bills, and how absolutely unconstitutional they are, please visit this link here.

Our phone lines and text messaging service will be operational during this time.  Service will be resumed at 7PM CST.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding.
