Happy Friday, everybody! We’ve got some cool events going on this weekend, not to mention this super-cool van (see photo). What the heck is that thing? Find out below…


Local Events

  • Do you rip up the slopes in the winter? If so, you should definitely check out the San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival this weekend (Sat & Sun, from 11AM-8PM). There’ll be a live snow play arena, cheap manufacturer gear and BMX stunts. Plus, you get 3 FREE lift tickets with admission (which is only $10 here). Not to mention, two-for-one tickets to Kirkwood, Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose and Boreal.
  • Tonight is Mission Muralismo’s Grand Finale at the de Young Museum, celebrating the last night of the series highlighting the eclectic murals in the Mission District. Starting at 5PM, the evening’s talks, films and art projects are centered around the Mexican Revolution and 100 years in the Mission. There will also be live music and drinks!

Interesting Internet Findings (which, coincidentally, both have to do with vans)

  • I was stunned when I read that a DRIVER-LESS electric van drove from 8,000 miles from Italy to China. Can you believe that? Apparently, it took three months to complete the journey because the cars could only drive for four hours before running out of juice. But still, impressive!
  • Is your inner biker/glam/diva/rockstar trying to break free? Well buy a ticket to New Zealand and stay in a Dragon Wagon (photo above!). These pimped-out vans have a bed, mini fridge and a chandelier and/or disco ball depending on which van you choose. Brilliant.

That’s all folks. Have a great weekend!

    Haha, the van is a hoot. I don’t quite get the point … did passengers hang out in the back, playing cards and drinking — or did the van travel passenger-less? I guess that, even with this technology available, I’d still fly. Thx for the scoop, though!
