In honor of the US premier of Christopher Wheeldon’s new production of Cinderella by the San Francisco Ballet, we asked you to submit pictures on Instagram and Twitter that remind you what a magical place SF is. We had over 1,300 submissions (yowza!), and were blown away by your pictures. Nice job guys!
We are so excited for the US premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s new production of Cinderella by the San Francisco Ballet! The production is inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Perrault fairy tales, and is being performed along with the Dutch National Ballet. Although it's a classic story, don't start thinking it will be a traditional performance - this production will be dramatic, magical, and just a touch dark.
For 100 years, Muni has been a part of our daily lives. It can take you home when you've had too much to drink, whisk you to work, rescue you when you get a flat tire on your bike, help you get your groceries back home, and so much more. Whether you're riding it or navigating around it on foot, two wheels or four wheels, it's a force to be reckoned with.
Muni's centennial is today, so we're want kicking off a photo contest highlighting Muni in all its awesome, crazy, where-would-we-be-without-you glory.
As the Endeavour passed over the city this morning, you all Instagrammed like crazy! The retired NASA space shuttle made its final flight down the California coast atop a modified 747 jumbo jet today. After completing a total of 25 flights to space, the shuttle certainly derserved all the attention it got from the people of San Francisco. The California Science Center in Los Angeles is the shuttle's new and permanent home. In case today's flight over the city wasn't enough for you, it will be on public display starting October 30.
For those who missed the shuttle, the 7x7 team chose some of their favorite photos from today's excitement to share. Take a look at what some of your fellow San Franciscans saw this morning.

Do you love or hate Valentine's Day? Do you dress in all red, or drown your sorrows with your friends by singing angry karaoke songs? We want to know, via Instagram.
