Riders with Drinks

Have you ever read your favorite public transit blogs and thought, 'Wow, those people are amazingly fantastic and I NEED to meet them and hear their stories in a bar setting with lots of mixed drinks' or 'I think I need to be drunk to meet Rachel'?

If so, the Muni Diaries Riders with Drinks event is for you.

Our friends at Muni Diaries are hosting a meet and greet and storytelling type of event on Friday, June 12.
Be there or be square.
Check it out here.

Here is the full post, for your viewing pleasure:

Did you know Muni Diaries is best enjoyed with a live audience, accompanied by a beer or cocktail? Come join us for Muni Diaries’ first ever Riders With Drinks event at the Make-Out Room on Friday, June 12.

In the fine tradition of spoken word, your fellow Muni riders will read their stories, recite Muni-related haikus, re-enact some funny Muni scenes (finger puppets, anyone?), and everything in between. The idea is to tell Muni stories in whatever form that inspires you, so if you’ve got a Muni tale to share, or music, art, photography, or video inspired by Muni and would like to join the lineup, email us asap!

By the way, we are one of the main events at the Make-Out Room that night, which means our name will be on the big sign outside! Can you tell we’re really excited?

Muni Diaries Riders with Drinks
Friday, June 12, 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (no cover. We’ll have a donation box and give any proceeds to a charity we’ll be choosing soon)
Make-Out Room — 3225 22nd Street
Routes serving the area: BART 24th St. Station, 12, 14, 22, 26, 33, 48, 49, 67
Email us to join the lineup: muni.diaries.sf@gmail.com

I just saw the details for the event and added it to my calendar. Alcohol and talking about MUNI stories? I wouldn't miss this for the world.

PS: I am so loving your blog.

I am BEYOND sad that I am going to miss this but as Eugenia knows, I have a very important calendar conflict which involves my 8-year old friend dancing salsa onstage at the Herbst Theatre. Otherwise I would totally be there with puppets.

I expect a full report.
