YPT SF Bay GrubWithUs Recap

Hey YPTers! Long time no chat. Actually this is my first official post as YPT SF’s unofficial blogger for 2013. I’m stoked to report on the news of the day, the news of the Bay, and all things young, trans-curious and interesting that gets sent my way.

Since the YPT SF Board election last fall, the new Board has been hard at work coming up with a full slate of events that will keep calendars booked from here until 2014. The first event was a sold-out dinner at Poc Chuc in the Mission on December 19. SF Board Chair, and transportation superstar Paul Supawanich, reports that the group of diverse professionals from government, start-ups, non-profits and engineering conversed on topics ranging from “shared interest in transportation, the culinary scene in SF, whether the world would end with the end of the Mayan calendar (it didn’t), and whether the new Megabus service from Potrero can beat air, rail, or driving to LA.”

This dinner was coordinated through the web platform GrubWithUs, and supports one of YPT’s goals for 2013: to expand programming and also find new ways to hold smaller group events to really enable members to connect on more of a one-to-one basis. YPT SF looks forward to hosting more dinners this year using GrubWithUs, which takes all of the hassles out of hosting, figuring out a menu and splitting the bill. Since you’re reading this, please consider signing up for the next YPT GrubWIthUs!

The YPT dinner was preceded by a visit to San Francisco’s Harvey Milk Photography Center, which is hosting two transportation related exhibits through Jan 5, 2013: “In Transit”, photo accounts and stories from San Francisco’s 100 year old Muni system, and “The F-line Inside Out,”, which showcased photos over the years of San Francisco’s historic streetcars. Paul reports that it was “transit-nerdy to the max, but a great prelude to an evening discussion about transportation!”

Of course, YPT SF is hosting its 2013 kick-off event next week, so we hope to see you there! Until then, keep it transcurious!
