J-Church

PBR 12-packs need Muni, too, you know

Conundrum: cracking one open on the J-Church when it’s packed and you could really use one (though preferably something stronger) vs. cracking one open in relative, however visible peace.

I think it’s safe to say that the answer to this age-old question is: “Yes.”

From Samantha on the trusty Muni Diaries Facebook page (are you following us there? Because follow us there):

Thought you guys would find this entertaining. Dude was pre-partying before hitting up Dolores Park on the J. Legit.

We do find it entertaining, and so do you.

Muni Douchebag of the Week (or Year)

Rider Cat witnessed some truly terrible behavior on the J last week. Things got so violent that calling it “douchebaggery” is putting it mildly.

I was on the 8:15 a.m. J last Friday. There were a group of teenagers, lounging as they usually do, trying to take up multiple seats. Whatever, they do that all the time.

Muni’s Long Shutdown Is Actually Kinda Beautiful

Muni is busy building a better Muni, though we’re sure some of you see the long shutdown mostly as a big stinkin’ pain in the ass.

Still, there’s a sort of beauty in the work going on at Church and Duboce, evidenced here by Patrick’s photo above. Click here for a larger version.

Aside from looking kinda purty if you’re in the right mood, we wanna know how your N-Judah, J-Church, and 22-Fillmore experiences have been like since Friday evening. Better, worse, same? Sound off in comments here.

Here’s another shot of the action, this one from Jim. Thanks for sending, Jim!
