Links of Interest: A Few Upcoming Events You May Enjoy...
There's a number of assorted events I've been finding out about that you may enjoy. All are accessible via the Mighty N and other assorted Muni lines, and most are free or cost little to participate!
First, obviously, is this weekend's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park, which starts tomorrow. This is a huge event every year, so you can pretty much plan on having a lot of people concentrated in one place, and expect Muni to be super crowded all weekend. Anyone thinking of driving and finding parking nearby the event needs to rethink that, since there simply isn't an endless supply of free parking on City streets out here, and besides, why ruin a day stuck in your car when you could be at the event?
Next, the folks at Reset San Francisco (aka the Phil Ting For Mayor Campaign) is holding a "Reset the N Judah" event on Saturday, October 1st at 1pm. The event will be held at Villa Romana restaurant on Irving, across from the 9th/Irving stop. This is one in a series of events for specific lines. I have no idea what the format will be, but after attending past events, they are usually pretty open to suggestions from the public. Besides, it's at Villa Romana - how can you possibly go wrong with a venue like that?
Coming up in just a few weeks is the Inner Sunset Street Fair, which will be held on October 16th. There's still time to donate in support of the event or get a booth, so if you're so inclined, contact the organizers immediately and give them a hand. Unlike chain-produced fairs which all have the same booths and same sponsors, this one is much more community based, and is aiming to be more representative of the residents and their interests, so it really is worthy of your support.
Later that evening, the Inner Sunset Anywhere Cinema will be showing movies. Check their site for the location, and enjoy the show with your neighbors. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and it won't be too cold outside!
Finally, the good people at Market Street Railway will be hosting another charter F Line ride on October 23rd. Weather permitting, this charter ride will be on the famous "Boat Tram" that you see from time to time on the F line. The tour starts and ends at the Market Street Railway Museum at 77 Steuart Street, and will feature historical commentary from Harlan Hirschfeld from City Guides and Mike Frew from Market Street Railway. The cost is $30, which covers the cost of the charter fees. These events often sell out quickly, so if you want to go, be sure to reserve a spot right away!
More events are coming soon, including a Happy Hour with the N Judah Chronicles. Details TBA!
