Episode Summary: Greg Dewar is the author of a local blog, The N-Judah Chronicles. It all started 10 years ago, when he sent an email to a few friends about all the things that went wrong on his Muni ride that day. The email got forwarded, continued getting forwarded, and eventually went viral. From there, Greg started a blog to share all his daily adventures and musings on SF’s public transportation lines. Over the years, he became a go-to resource for current events happening in the public transportation world and an advocate for improving the systems. Greg has even expanded the blog to share his thoughts on local political happenings. The blog has won a few awards, including “Best Local Blog” in the 2008 San Francisco Bay Guardian’s “Best of the Bay” edition. On today’s show, Greg shares his funniest and most shocking stories from his rides on Muni.
Neighborhood & Favorite Spots: Greg lives in the Inner Sunset. He loves the neighborhood’s close proximity to Golden Gate Park and all of it’s museums. Ebisu is nearby and has some of the best sushi in the City. Greg loves Pacific Catch and thinks they have one of the best happy hours in town. His favorite neighborhood bar is the Blackthorn Tavern. One of Greg’s favorite sub sandwich spots in the City, The Yellow Submarine, is also nearby. He also enjoys Social Kitchen & Brewery, Mucky Duck, and Yancy’s Saloon.
If you had to move away, how would you spend your last day in San Francisco? Greg would ride all the cable cars in the City. Then, he would ride the entire N-Judah line from Ocean Beach to AT&T park. Greg would stop at one of his favorite restaurants, Tommy’s Joynt. He would also take in the sights at Twin Peaks, Lands End, The Cliff House, and the Golden Gate Bridge.
