Cirque du Soleil’s Big Top has encamped at San Francisco’s ATT Park until January 18, 2015 with their current show, Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities. With whimsically steampunk aesthetics coupled with spectacular acrobatics, our crew had the privilege of seeing Cirque’s final dress rehearsal before the premiere and we were blown away. Critics say that it’s the best show the Cirque has performed in years. And we agree.

This spring, Cabrio Taxi’s pedicab drivers have been competing against neighboring San Francisco-based businesses in the Ferry Bocce league at Justin Herman Plaza in front of San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building. Around 40 teams gathered weekly on the newly revamped bocce courts to try their hand at bocce, and even get some pro tips from Bocce international competitors like Benji Tosi, who has been known to make cameos at the games. Teams play against each other in random order throughout the season, ultimately competing for a spot in the semi-finals to go on for the big wins.
The finals boiled down to one champion team per night, and then finally, a Battle Royale for the League Champions. After a nail biting semi-final (13 – 12!) Team Cabrio pulled out a win of 13 – 10!
Pedicab drivers Paulo Serna (team captain), Ward Davis, April Atencio and Brett Sherman (pictured L to R above) will be back next season for more Bocce on the waterfront.
Guests were delighted by the presence of Cabrio Taxi Pedicabs at the Exploratorium’s annual member gala. The gala, which takes place all over the Exploratorium, begins with a dinner at the back of the pier – a long walk from the parking lots or the street. The Exploratorium and Cabrio Taxi collaborated to make this trip easier, but mostly more fun – for guests as they made their way to the event.
Cabrio participated in last year’s gala as well – which was the grand opening of the Exploratorium’s new location at Pier 15.
CBS 5 recently called on Cabrio Taxi to help out with a segment – on San Francisco’s Rock and Roll Half Marathon! Rider Aaron Martinsen rode around Roberta and her cameraman as she interviewed one of the elite runners for the race.
Glad we could help out!
Mayor Ed Lee recently convened representatives from San Francisco’s three pedicab companies to gain a some perspective about the pedicab business in San Francisco.
The mayor was primarily interested in how pedicabs can be of service to the Embarcadero given the upcoming possibilities the Warriors stadium and other upgrades to the waterfront area. He observed pedicabs moving easily through the streets where cars often cannot.
The meeting took place at Red’s Java House on the Embarcadero; also in attendance were the Executive Director of the Port and a manager of the SFMTA. Topics ranged from more pedicab routes throughout San Francisco, including through Golden Gate Park, and even the possibility of electric assist pedicabs being made legal.
Time will tell what comes to pass, but the overall message was powerful – keeping the city in close touch with pedicab companies is in everyone’s best interest – we can all be of service to each other.
