On Saturday, the annual Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe will take place. Participants will begin walking from All Soul’s Church in South San Francisco at 6:00 a.m., enter San Francisco at Mission and Sickles at 9:30 a.m. and end at St. Mary’s Cathedral on Geary Boulevard at 2:00 p.m.
The San Francisco portion of the route begins at Mission Street and Sickles Avenue, continues north on Mission to Van Ness Avenue (via 14th Street and South Van Ness Avenue) to Ellis Street, west on Ellis Street to Gough Street, and then north on Gough Street to Geary Boulevard where it will end at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
No closures or re-routes are planned. Streets along the procession route may be congested which could affect Muni bus service. SFPD officers and Parking Control Officers will monitor the march.

It’s nice when people yell backdoor for you or give you their seat on the bus. But the following is a top-level good deed on Muni that I personally wouldn’t be able to do without.
@LaMelSauceda: Shout out to the man who prevented me from stepping in poop on the 6 today. Good lookin’ out, bro.
With that, we’ll leave you with the festive photo from reader Larry G. above. Enjoy your weekend!
Hello boys and girls, it’s time to play a game of What Is It (on Muni)!?
So, WTF is it? There are no wrong answers.

p.s. Is that a little child ninja photobombing on the left?
This came into our inbox with subject: “I can beat nail clipping on Muni.” You be the judge.
Our submitter, who wishes to remain anonymous, emailed this with, “How about crack smoking on the J-Church at rush hour?”
HEY, LOOK, if real-life SNL skit Rob Ford can smoke crack “maybe once,” maybe this person can smoke crack “maybe once,” too.

Think a guy who takes photos up women’s skirts on the train is a disgusting pervert who deserves to be arrested? Not so, according to a Boston area defense lawyer.
In what has to be the most mind-blowing legal argument ever, the attorney for an Andover, Massachusetts, man recently argued in court that up-the-skirt photos her client took on the Green Line of Boston’s MBTA should be protected by the First Amendment. She also said that passengers on public transit should have no expectation of privacy under the state’s Peeping Tom law.
Kind of gives new meaning to the term “look out below,” doesn’t it?
