Muni Diaries Live! @ The Makeout Room

Whether it's making you late to a very important date or it leads to meeting the love of your life on one of their rickety buses, our lives all hinge on Muni at one point or another. Friends and foes are all coming together this week on Friday, October 29th for Muni Diaries Live! at the Makeout Room to hear stories, both horrific and happy, about our city's public transportation.

Derek Lam-Hosted SF Fall Antiques Show Kicks Off This Weekend

Transported: Getting Your (Drunk) Self Home On Halloween

Welcome to "Transported", our new weekly series about getting places in San Francisco, whether you take the bus or the BART, bike or drive. Come here to find the skinny on secret parking spots, the new bike lanes and how to get across town on Muni without losing your mind.

If you're reveling this weekend for Halloween, make sure to get yourself home safe. Here are some options to pre-program into your phone:

Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home, courtesy of Berg Injury Lawyers and Luxor Cab, provides a fleet of cabs to take you anywhere within city limits (they also do rides in Sacramento, Oakland, Alameda and Berkeley) so you don't have to risk a DUI. When you call, just let them know Berg Injury Lawyers is picking up the tab. It's important to note that they'll only take you home, not to another bar! Call (415) 282‐4141 from 10 pm-4 am, and they'll take care of you.

Sonny & the Sunsets Takes Great American Music Hall Tomorrow Night

Don't get me wrong--I like Best Coast a heck of a lot. I'm just way more excited to see San Francisco band Sonny & the Sunsets open for them at their Great American Music Hall show tomorrow night, the 26th. With their latest and most excellent disc Tomorrow Is Alright (Fat Possum) hot off the presses this summer, Sonny & the Sunsets--who have been rigorously touring for a few months now--has become one of our best musical exports.

New Smart Meter Sensors Just Installed in the Marina

We heard through the grapevine that the folks at SFMTA and SFPark (purveyors of the city's snazzy new smart meters) tore up a few blocks of Chestnut Street this week. The Marina is the latest 'hood to get wireless sensors (SOMA, Fisherman's Wharf and Civic Center are others) installed in each parking spot for their congestion-based pricing project.
