Get ready for a sweet community event on Saturday, July 13th!  Tony Lukezic, Brisbane resident, has been working with staff to organize a Downtown Brisbane Car Show that will take place on San Francisco Ave. from 9am - 4pm.  He's anticipating about 100 cars parked along both sides of the street, from Old County Rd. up to Mariposa St.  They're start getting into position starting at 7:30am.  The Mothers of Brisbane will be selling sodas and water for $1 throughout the day (proceeds to benefit Brisbane Elementary School, with the proceeds from car show entrants benefitting the Brisbane Skatepark).  Sound Productions will be emceeing the event and providing tunes from the 70s, 80s and 90s starting at 11am.  The event is KID-FRIENDLY, with 2 jump houses set up in the Community Park.  The Fire Dept. is also lending their antique 1937 fire engine, which will be parked in the intersection of Plumas Ave. and San Francisco Ave. for people to take pictures in front of.  So, be sure to come on out and walk along San Francisco to see all the cars that will be parked there, and enjoy the music, drinks, and atmosphere!

New Paintings on Display

A note from Brisbane Artist Rosanna Lyons, who will be displaying her paintings in the City Hall "art gallery" (50 Park Place, Brisbane) during the month of July:

Please join me for a fun evening of art with appetizers and wine at Brisbane City Hall on July the 10th from 6pm 'till 8pm.
I am an Irish artist who lives in Brisbane and would like to share my recent paintings with you.
I am greatly influenced by the figure and most recently dancers, after I rediscovered my childhood love of dance and became an adult ballet dancer myself.
I like to examine the pain behind the beauty of ballet.
I have worked since I was a teenager in effects animation at Disney, Dreamworks, on the Simpsons and The Smurfs among other productions.
I work from my home in Brisbane and my studio at Hunter's Point Shipyard and am currently exhibiting at City Art on Valencia in The Mission district.
Hope to see you at my show here in Brisbane!

Possible BART Strike on 7/1

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE, Friday, 8:43AM - BART trains will be running again beginning Friday afternoon (7/5) after the transit district and its striking unions agreed to a 30-day extension of the current contract. Click here for more.

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Bay Area Council have asked us to share the following information with you in preparation for a potential BART strike. 

In the event of a BART strike, the Commute.org (Alliance) shuttles plan to run normal schedules on all routes (including those that connect to BART stations in Millbrae, South San Francisco and Balboa Park). Pick-up and drop-off locations may be altered at BART stations depending on access. 

 

For current information about the potential BART strike, commute alternatives and Alliance shuttle service information, please visit our BART strike information page.
