Amazing tales, a new spin on bingo, and an only-in-San Francisco burlesque act that put old paper Fast Passes to very good use. At our 15th show, we were still floored by the enthusiasm and support of everyone who came to Muni Diaries Live, especially our storytellers who really dug deep into their San Francisco experience to share stories that are both funny and vulnerable, and serve as excellent reminders of why public transit is an important part of any urban existence.

Dude transports Hello Kitty drums on Muni

hello_kitty_drums

Have we reached Peak Cute on Muni, or what? This fella got himself (has to be for him) a Hello Kitty drum kit, said “screw it,” got on a crowded M-Ocean View at night, and proceeded to rule the universe.

He joins an elite group of people with musical instruments on Muni. To whit:

Strummin’ away on Muni
Playing the cello on a moving Muni bus
Brass section represented on Muni
