We are still on a high from Friday’s Riders with Drinks, where so many of you came out that the Make-Out Room had to call for backup bartenders! We are speechless about the great energy from our performers and audience. We’ve got more Muni stories in the bag, but before we move on with the week, here is a little recap of the hot, hilarious, and awesome night at Riders with Drinks.
If you were there on Friday, you know that we closed the show with some homemade sock puppet re-enactment of the “Penis in public” story. Pictures of the puppets and other hilarity after the jump.
Thank you to those of you who made it last night to Riders with Drinks, our first event! We are still in disbelief how many people we managed to pack into the Make-Out Room, raising the temperature in there by at least 20 degrees, I think.
We’ve got photos and videos to share, but for now, check out the post by the Tenderblog about last night’s spoken word hilarity. And for a little weekend fun, here’s a selection of goodies from last night’s Muni haiku troupe:
Stop yelling at me
Or just stop yelling near me
Did I just get flashed?
– Tara Ramroop
On crowded buses,
Always protect purses and —
Oh look, Some vomit!
– Ileana Shevlin
I, Muni Humper
Filled with longing and despair
Are you my angel?
– Chris Lindsey
Riders with Drinks, Muni Diaries’ first spoken word party, is tonight! Come hear your fellow riders tell hilarious, cringe-inducing, disgusting, and other worthy stories of our beloved public transit system. We’ve got a haiku troupe, musical performance, and live re-enactments of some of your favorite stories. And did we mention that the Make-Out Room makes a deliciously mean Sidecar?
