Photo del dia: Room for three

AC transbay lines as seen, some buses sporting a triple front rack and 2+ slots underneath.
A total 3+2 (+sometimes 2 more in the foldable in-slot) pretty impressive.
Beats BART bike/rush hour blackout anyday.

Weekend: Fuga & Bike Film Festival

Other than people leaving their bikes at the SFBC valet bike parking to go eat burritos and occupy space for people that would be in the theatre; the screenings, sold out and packed with PBR & chrome bags, were all fun. Some of the shorts had very nice imagery and scenery ranging from the city to Tokyo, GBritain and Italia. Fun & crazy was Balorda (posted here), Amazing was Belle Epoch Italian cyclist Giuliano Calore (aka “Cyclist of the Impossible) rides on Europe’s steepest mountain roads playing different musical instruments along the way.

Rock the Bike was in the house

Got to see this awesome band play this past Sat. at the Independent, part of this year's Afrofunk Music Festival. Not too happy they got to play 1st, because they are bad ass. A mover el bote -they will make you move with acordeón, cumbias and good beats.
*** Next show: Saturday Aug. 31st @La Peña, in Berkeley ‹more info HERE›

Coffee: New bean on the block

Weaver's Coffee and Tea is the new coffee (& tea) behind John Weaver, who is well known/recognized as coffee roaster and tasting experts in the coffee world. He recently left after 20+ years at Peet's Coffee & Tea to start his own company.
They had some french press demos (tried one of their Fair trade blends) and it was pretty good. I am always happy to find out about new coffee companies and cafes around the city, so this was a nice introduction to their coffee this weekend.
New local company WEAVER'S Coffee & Tea based in West Portal, french pressing some goodness.
Pictured here John Weaver (left) at Real Foods Market, where you can currently purchase their beans (& online)
