Allison DeBona is a dancer and first soloist with Ballet West. When serendipity put her together in the same Muni Metro with another dancer, of course they spontaneously put together a dance photoshoot on the bus! From Allison:
“When a nice (random) lady decides to direct you in a dance photo shoot on [sic] the Muni. Come to find out she was a graduate of SFB school in the 80s. When offered a job there, she decided getting an educating was more important than dancing professionally and went to college. Random and awesome.”
You gotta love it when things like this happens on Muni, like receiving surprise gift from a passenger or getting some wise life advice from someone who’s been there. Just the other day, I met a woman who was on her way to record a hip-hop documentary. What’s your random run-in with awesomeness on Muni? Our inbox awaits your tales.
Here’s a photo that makes you wish that you were young again, at that age when you didn’t care about the number of reasons why riding the outside of the J could be kind of dangerous, and you never worried about knee problems because you are going to live forever.
Thank you to Robert of Robert Leidner Photography for this great photo we’ll add to the collection of wholly unrecommended ways to ride Muni.
So this is how you skateboard uphill in San Francisco. This guy nonchalantly catches a ride from the 24-Divisadero, to what I can only imagine was the awe and surprise from the line outside of Brenda’s Meat and Three. Thanks to Wenyan Chen for this Instagram video.
I mean, us Muni riders’ motto should be, “Making the Most of a Bad Situation,” amirite? Muni rider Shaun is with me:
“When the Muni robot voice says ‘Please hold on,’ I always want finish it with, ‘Hold on for one more day!’
“Am I the only person who wants to sing Wilson Phillips while riding the bus?”
You’re not now, Shaun!
