Kart around NYC with free Mario cab rides this Thursday

Celebrating this weekend's Mario Kart Wii launch, Nintendo is offering New Yorkers a free cab ride this Thursday, April 24. According to the press release, just head over to the Sheraton Hotel (811 7th Ave., between 52nd and 53rd streets) between 8:00 and 10:00 am or 12:00 and 2:00 pm to roam the city on Nintendo's tab.

We at Joystiq would like to caution you, though, that just because the cab driver looks like Mario doesn't mean he's part of the deal. Make sure to double check that before you try to walk away from a large, mustachioed man without paying your fare.
