I ask myself this question all the time anyway, but, man, this ride would really make me ponder the question of:

Is This Trip Really Necessary?

I can’t imagine driving this rig around – perhaps in an emergency and somebody needed a lift to the hospital…

Oh, and I question whether this paint scheme / logo combo is authorized by Mattel, Incand/or Fiat S.p.A..

OMG, Ride the E-Line “Twin Torpedos” for Free This Weekend! Volunteer to be a Temporary Streetcar Docent

Monday, October 1st, 2012

How would you like to volunteer as a docent helping out with the new-school / old-school E-line on October 6-7, 2012?

First, some background about how busy the 415 will be this weekend:

“Looking at what’s scheduled for that weekend, there might not be room in the city for many more people, much less cars. First, there’s the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park, a three-day event that drew about 800,000 people last year. That Sunday afternoon, the 49ers play the Buffalo Bills at Candlestick Park, while the Giants are hoping for weekend playoff games at AT&T Park, all guaranteed sellouts. About 60,000 people typically attend the Castro Street Fair, scheduled for that Sunday, while thousands more will jam North Beach for the annual Italian Heritage Parade at 12:30 on the same day. A different crowd will probably be at the Burning Man Decompression street fair, also that Sunday afternoon. To add to the fun, two mega cruise ships are expected to dock at Pier 35 over the weekend, disgorging thousands more tourists. Then, of course, there’s Fleet Week, which brings thousands of sailors and as many as a million visitors to the waterfront for the weekend.”

So you’ll be needed to help out all the visitors moving around on the Twin Torpedos, streetcars 1006 and 1008:

“We need several more docents to work the stops along the E-line on October 6 and 7, helping riders find the right platform and providing information about the service. We have docent books prepared by Paul Lucas, so it’s easy to learn what to do. If you’re interested, send us an email and we’ll get back to you.”

Declaring the SFMTA a Rogue Agency – FIX MUNI NOW Becomes FIX MUNI SOMETIME LATER – “Give Us More Money”

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

San Francisco’s “Strong Mayor System” plus the SFMTA = the San Francisco’s worst government agency, one unresponsive to the Commonweal.

Zusha Elinson explicates.

Another part-timer goes full time – Training Day in the Birmingham Electric this week:

Oh, what’s that MUNI, you’re actually perfect and your approach to everything is and always has been perfect and Mayor Ed Lee is a Golden God and everything will get better once you get just a little (or a lot) more money?

OK fine, whatever you say, SFMTA.

OMG, the Five New Flavors of Ben & Jerry’s GREEK FROZEN YOGURT are Here! – Your “Indulgent Dessert,” Your “Reasonable Reward”

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Well, here they are, we in San Francisco are finally getting Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt – it’s been spreading across the country from Vermont all year:

Can you match up the flavors based upon appearance?

Oh, and Strawberry Shortcake in your grocer’s freezer.

There’s a bit more protein and a bit less fat in this stuff, and it takes more milk to make, which is making the dairy farmers of Vermont very happy, I’m sure.

And oh, Ben and Jerry’s kicks ass – have I said that lately? Check their mission statement, if you’re looking for an example to follow with your startup / whatever.

Try the Banana Peanut Butter even if you aren’t a fan of either.

All the deets.

 

4Loko Might Be Dead, But There’s a Replacement: CREAM, the 30-Proof Alcohol-Infused Whipped Cream

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

OMG, it’s CREAM, the alcohol-infused whipped cream.

And it’s just the thing for you in this post-4Loko world.

“Get Creamed,” as they say:

“Get Whipped,” as they say:

But the Marin Institute does not approve:

“The ink is barely dry on the Food and Drug Administration’s letters to makers of alcoholic energy drinks and already there’s another kid-friendly alcohol product gaining attention and spurring buying frenzies across the country. Alcoholic whipped cream, anyone?

For a mere $13 a can, (with the cutesy name “Cream”) booze-enthusiasts can score their 30-proof party-starter in childlike flavors such as chocolate, cherry, orange, and raspberry. At about the equivalent alcohol content as Bailey’s Irish Cream or Bacardi Mojito, each shot packs a whallop. And how should one consume it? Let’s ask the company. The MySpace page of the product’s creators urges you to try adding it to Jello shots – a staple of college parties everywhere.  But remember: whip responsibly.”

Whip responsibly, indeed.

Despite the Rain, the Show Goes On at the Haight and Ashbury Ben and Jerry’s – Phish Bassist Mike Gordon Plays

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

There still should be free ice cream at 2:15 PM or whenever the short set ends, though.

Actually, I’m surprised the NIMBYs didn’t try to kill this one:

Next stop, the Independent….

OMG, Free Phish Food Ice Cream! Plus, Phish Bassist Mike Gordon Plays Haight-Ashbury this Sunday, Nov. 7th!

Friday, November 5th, 2010

This one could prove popular:

“Ben & Jerry’s and the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival are wrapping up their series of ‘secret’ scoop shop shows with a very special free concert by Phish bassist Mike Gordon this Sunday, November 7th at 1:00 pm outside the Ben & Jerry’s store on the corner of Haight & Ashbury Streets. That’s right, it’s a free outdoor concert smack in the middle of the historic Haight-Ashbury district. The Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop at 1480 Haight Street will host the free outdoor show as well as give away free samples of their “Bonnaroo Buzz” and “Phish Food” ice creams to attendees (while supplies last).”

I wouldn’t plan on driving through the area anytime before or after 1:00 PM on Sunday, but feel free to sit and or lie about the sidewalks – this could be your last chance before the new law* kicks in.

It’ll be mayhem once again at the corner of Haight and Ashbury:

BEN & JERRY’S “BONNAROO BUZZ” AND “PHISH FOOD” FLAVORS PRESENT A FREE OUTDOOR SHOW BY PHISH’S MIKE GORDON ON THE CORNER OF HAIGHT & ASHBURY STREETS…

Ben & Jerry’s and the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival are wrapping up their series of ‘secret’ scoop shop shows with a very special free concert by Phish bassist Mike Gordon this Sunday, November 7th at 1:00 pm outside the Ben & Jerry’s store on the corner of Haight & Ashbury Streets. That’s right, it’s a free outdoor concert smack in the middle of the historic Haight-Ashbury district!

The Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop at 1480 Haight Street will host the free outdoor show as well as give away free samples of their “Bonnaroo Buzz” and “Phish Food” ice creams to attendees (while supplies last).

Mike Gordon is currently on tour supporting his third solo album MOSS, which was released on October 19th on Rounder Records. Mike’s bandmates in Phish – keyboardist Page McConnell and drummer Jon Fishman – also make appearances on MOSS.

Following Mike’s FREE performance at the Ben & Jerry’s Haight Ashbury location, he and his band headline a SOLD OUT show at The Independent later that night.

See you there!
