Trolley Dances 2009 (update w/more photos)
Last week, we told you of the then-upcoming event, Trolley Dances, set for last weekend around the city.
Sadly, none of us were able to catch the action. But we came across this post from Mariam In The City, in which Mariam recaps the action.
A choice bit:
As we approached 30th and Church the Muni driver announced over the loud speaker to look out the left side of the train for a special performance. Of course I was on the other side and couldn’t see much, but I did catch a few glimpses of the couple dancing on the sidewalk. Everyone on the train started cheering as the man lifted the woman into air with her puffy, black and white polka dot skirt. We all clapped and waved good bye to the dancers as the train moved on. It must have been quite a scene for people walking down the street wondering what was going on.
