Hurray! The Memphis Minnie’s “Big Pig” Van is Back on the Road, After Being “Destroyed” in a Giants Victory Riot on Haight

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Remember when our San Francisco Giants won the World Series the time before last?

It was back in 2010. Good times. I celebrated by climbing on top of the Memphis Minnie’s Barbeque Joint And Smokehouse Ford van parked on the street in the Lower Haight.

There I was, looking fierce bouncing up and down in my little black dress and orange pumps, along with bunch of other people.* We few, we Band of Brothers, we Baseball Furies.

Anyway, as the above link to Haighteration shows, the Big Pig, she got messed up.

I don’t know, I think this ride is worth more than it would have been without the battle scars from aught-ten.

I think this rig is now a historic artifact worthy of preservation.

Keep on keeping on, Memphis Minnie’s.

*Oh, not really. Actually, after watching on a friend’s big screen (’cause I don’t I have cable ’cause I want the Comcast monopoly to die die die) I had to ride my bike on up to Pac Heights. The city was electric, all over, not just in the Mission and in the Haights.
