Whenever I’m looking for something to write about, inevitably I find something good via Telstar Logistics, Todd Lappin’s blog/photoblog/dose of cool. In the past I’ve highlighted some of his posts and great photography. This week, he wrote to me to alert folks about a really fun event, in conjunction with the non-profit Market Street Railway on December 19th.
From 1-4pm, special holiday themed cars will be departing from the Market Street Railway Museum on Steuart Street and take a non-stop ride to Pier 39 and back. Cars will feature holiday music and kid-friendly activities. Best of all, every kid gets an activity book and a piece of authentic 19th century cable car cable free!
The cost is a mere $5, and you can make a nice day of it, looking at the museum’s exhibits, and maybe heading to the Ferry Building or something afterwards. This is truly an “only in San Francisco” way to celebrate the holidays (and I mean that in a good way).
PS: This is totally unrelated to this post, but I had to post something about this – the first augmented reality app for the iPhone 3G and Muni. As I don’t have an iPhone 3GS I have no way of testing it, so if you do, and you try it out, please let me know how you like it.
