Weekend Photos: The Faces of Muni Riders

Muni Diaries Live No. 5, with its stellar lineup, is a mere two weeks away! We’re getting super-psyched. Be sure to pick up discounted advance tickets ($8) if you haven’t already. They’re running out, and you can use that savings on some of the delightful libations at the Make-Out Room.

Another thing we can hardly contain ourselves about is the San Francisco Giants first home game, under way right now at AT&T Park. SFMTA encourages you to take public transit to and from all games this season. We agree. Or, at least walk or take a cab. Driving there is just silly.

The Muni Diaries Facebook page is another way for you to stay close to the action. “Like” us on Facebook today, and you won’t regret it.

So, yes, Muni didn’t seem to want to stay out of the news this week:
