So, my App says I have Boost this afternoon, but I haven't received a text or email saying what the boost region is.
Can anyone post the area since I've a couple hours to kill today?

Just got the text for boost. Not sure on area yet since it seems to change a lot. Boost doesn't work for me, if they want me on the road more all it takes is a descent guarantee. The number of stacked rides I've had this week shows the effect boost has in the suburbs.

I've gotta pick someone up (i.e. not Uber) downtown in the mid-afternoon, and I don't have anything better to do, so might as well get paid to drive in and get paid some for putzing around the city... probably wouldn't do it otherwise...

For me because I live on North Lake Shore, It works better than the guarantee: If I end up in a bad part of town or in the suburbs, I can turn off the app till I am back in the boost territory. If I need a bathroom break I can do it without having to fear missing a ping....

I haven't gotten anything yet, did you guys get something for this weekend already? Or just this afternoon?

Other question on Boost. When you get a ping, does the screen show if it's a Boost ride (or at least show the fake surge), or do you have to figure it out from memory based on the address in the 15 seconds it gives you to accept?

It will show on the acceptance screen, lower right. Surge lightning bolt.

I saw it in my app about an hour ago, and got the text 20 minutes ago... App says 1.4x from noon to 4pm, so I'm guessing the higher values are for later in the evening...
