Today marks Day 1 of the 22 Day Muni Challenge, a challenge issued by the San Francisco Transit Riders Union to city officials to take public transit every day for 22 days. The 22 day length symbolizes the 22 years since San Francisco voters passed Proposition AA, which called on public employees and elected officials to use public transit at least twice a week. According to the SFTRU:
22 years later, this policy agreement has never been acted on, and now is a chance to make up for lost time! When they regularly ride public transit, city officials better understand the rider's daily experience and prioritize funding and planning a more reliable, robust, and visionary transit system to support it. This is an opportunity for our city officials to promote their own commitment to public transportation, showcasing that they care about the future of Muni.
SFTRU is maintaining a leader board here tracking the number of rides taken by each Supervisor and the Mayor. Here's where things stand so far:

Mayor Lee took Muni to City Hall, but he didn't use the #OnBoardSF hashtag, so does it even count? 

John Avalos's commute from the Excelsior is an epic. Let us know if he ever makes it to work. 


Scott Weiner, on the other hand, did not break a sweat.

Eric Mar is starting a rival hashtag. 

Julie Christensen needs a selfie stick.
Jane Kim's heels are made for walking. 
Seriously though, please let us know if John Avalos is okay. 

UPDATE at 10:42 AM: He's alive!!!!!

  • 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.'"
