Putting the Historic F-Streetcar Line Back Together, One Overhead Wire at a Time

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Hours after yesterday’s collision and brouhaha in the Castro involving two historic F-Line streetcars (making up the bread part of an SUV sandwich), MUNI workers were still on the job about a half-mile away near the Duboce Yard in the back of the Church Street Safeway.

In technical terms, them wires up there done fell down. So the crew of an awesome yellow truck (with a scissors lift in the middle) came along and started winching things back together high above Market Street, with a quickness. Hurray!

San Francisco’s Great Pie Fight of 2009 – Standout Photos

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Well it was advertised on the Laughing Squid and the San Francisco Bay Area Art, Culture & Technology Events Squid List (something like craigslist but with less pandering), so it had to be good. Herbie Hatman from the Yelp-rated SFØ (or SFZero, or SF0, or SFZed, or whatever) promoted the spectacle that was yesterday’s Pie Fight at the Powell Street cable car turnaround near Market. 

Take a look below and then compare with 2007′s Barbersol-fueled action.
