Weekend Photos: Until Next Season, Giants

Even I am over baseball now. I didn’t go to the parade Wednesday because I decided I was tired of crowds. I did watch it online, though. Looked wonderful, except for that god-awful music that played while they introduced the players. Also, I hear Muni gave free rides afterward. Sounds about reasonable.

That said, I jumped at the chance to do this post today after Eugenia forwarded me some more photos showing people on Muni going to the parade or celebrating on Monday night (see below). It really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, being here when the team won the World Series. So one last time, I just want to say: Congrats to the team.

Tonight, we’ll be at Julie Michelle‘s i live here: SF art opening at SOMArts. Julie is amazing. Her work is amazing. This show is gonna be through-the-roof amazing, celebrating one of the best reasons to love this city: its people. If you can’t make it tonight, the show will stay up until Nov. 30. Oh, and also, too: Muni Diaries will be hosting a night at Julie’s show on Nov. 17. We invite you to come share your stories with us in person. Stay tuned for more details.

There was also an election this week, I think.

The week’s Muni news:

Getting there is half the battle
