This Week: SFTRU Bar Crawl, Celebrating Amelie Le Moullac

Join the SF Transit Riders Union Thursday for a pub-crawl-via-Muni fundraiser. The SFMTA will also hold a public hearing on Friday for street safety improvements on Columbus Avenue, Bay Street, and more. A celebration will also be held Saturday for Amelie Le Moullac’s life, one year after she died in a SoMa truck crash.

Here are all of this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Thursday: Join SFTRU for a fundraising bar crawl, hopping on and off Muni at four bars along the 71-Haight and 6-Parnassus routes in Civic Center, the Haight, and the Inner Sunset. Come out to support transit advocacy, and mingle with fellow advocates. 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Friday: SFMTA’s engineering hearing agenda includes seven on-street car-share parking locations, plus bulb-outs, bike lanes, and speed humps on streets like Columbus Avenue, Bay Street, and Randolph Street. 10 a.m.
  • Saturday: To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Amelie Le Moullac’s tragic death on her bike at Sixth and Folsom Streets, family and friends will host a celebration of her life at Dolores Park. “Come for a little or stay a while.” 2 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.

    Bar crawl sounds fun! Hopefully I can make it after work to at least the last 2-3 spots.

    Any chance of another Streetsblog Happy Hour in the works? That was fun. 😀

  • Not in the works yet, but I look forward to having another one indeed.
