Just Added: Free Margaritas at Muni Diaries Birthday DJ Party This Saturday

We just added one more very good reason for you to come to our 4th birthday DJ party this Saturday: free margaritas!

The nice folks at Young’s Market and el Jimador are giving everyone free margs Saturday night while supplies last! So you can wash down the Chairman Bao buns you just bought, or the 4505 chicharonnes that we’ll have for the first 30 people who ask.

A couple of readers have asked us whether there will be storytelling at the party: unlike our regular events, the birthday party is just a DJ party to celebrate our birthday! Well, not just a DJ party but a DJ party with free margaritas, photobooth, and door prizes! Our regular spoken word events will be back in July.

Added to Our Birthday Party: Chairman Bao!

We’ve got an exciting addition to Muni Diaries birthday fun next Saturday: the Chairman Bao truck will be parked outside of the Make-Out Room for all your pork belly needs!

If you’ve had the Chairman’s pork buns or spicy duck mango buns, you’ll know why we’re so excited. My mouth is watering right now. The Chairman is rarely in the Mission on Saturdays so be sure to come and pay your respect.

Today on Muni Time Capsule: Octoferret shares photos of Muni’s Streetcar No. 1 from the 80s. Car No. 1 was reintroduced to service last week to kick off Muni’s Centennial celebration. Check out what Muni’s very first vehicle looked like 30 years ago at Muni Time Capsule.

And don’t forget to submit your Muni story to our 100 Days, 100 Muni Stories feature. Muni turns 100 later this year, and we’re gathering 100 of your Muni stories to help celebrate. The best stories will be featured on ads on the bus, so send us your story today.

See Your Story on a Bus Ad with “100 Days, 100 Muni Stories”!

Muni turns 100 this year, and we want to celebrate it with your Muni stories. After all, we think that’s the best part about riding the bus. Today we’re launching our “100 Days, 100 Muni Stories” story drive: submit a Muni story in the next 100 days and a portion of your story can end up on a bus ad!

Your Muni story can be long, short, or even a funny tweet. We’ll choose two of the best stories on Muni Diaries — thanks to SFMTA’s help, portions of the winning stories will appear on advertisements inside the bus. Yes, your clever wit and your name can make an appearance on buses citywide.

So tell us your best Muni stories (use the hashtag #100MuniStories)! Need inspiration? Check out our archive of favorite Muni tales. See all the centennial celebration events at SFMTA’s official Muni centennial site.
