Seen In San Francisco: Clumsy Muni Patron Doesn't Stick Around to Cry Over Spilled Wine

Perhaps we have to thank the klutz responsible for the above scene at Church Street Station. After all, if he'd pulled his drop-the-merlot act on board an actual train it would have been that much worse -- but not just for the obvious reasons.

Suppose a tourist had someone splatter mid-range red wine on his or her "Alcatraz Psycho Ward" T-shirt. Then this person would go home and talk (or worse, blog) about how, only in San Francisco, would someone have to worry about having vin rouge hurled one's way on public transportation. The only thing worse would be a Grey Poupon-related incident.

So, really, we are lucky. On Muni, when one has to ask "What have I just sat in?" it can always get worse. Always.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
