Class 1 #138 in University Heights!

Class 1 #138 at the University Heights Arts Open / Taste of University Heights

Thanks to those of you who joined us this past Sunday, September 16th at the annual University Heights Arts Open & Taste of University Heights. And we’d like to give a special thanks to Ernie Bonn of the University Heights Community Development Corporation for having us! You can check out some snapshots of the event below.

Class 1 streetcar #138 arrived before the events started at 11am to curious onlookers and excited questions of “what is that!?” During our breaks, our staff enjoyed a sampling of pizza slices, basmati rice, hummus, chicken satay, iced coffee and more from a range of excellent participating vendors. After a wonderful day of talking to people in front of Small Bar, Lei Lounge, and Bourbon Street Bar & Grill on Park Avenue, we were reminded that uptown residents chose to live here so they could walk and spend locally. Virtually everyone we talked to knew just how much bringing the Class 1 historic streetcars back to San Diego would help us connect our communities and enrich local life and culture.

Thanks for coming out and showing us you share the same vision for San Diego! For those who couldn’t make it, join us Saturday, October 6th for the Taste of North Park where Class 1 #138 will make its next appearance.

University Heights Arts Open 2012

Don't miss out on the Sunday Funday on September 16th!

Calling all streetcar enthusiasts! We’re bringing out Class 1 #138 again and we’d love it if you could make it!

On Sunday, Sept. 16th we’ll be at the annual — and always excellent — University Heights Arts Open & Taste of University Heights from 11am to 5pm. Come enjoy some visual and performing arts, music, delicious food, and then board a genuine historic streetcar built for San Diego and the Panama-California Exposition of 1915. You’ll be able to find us on the 4600 block of Park Blvd, out in front of Bourbon Street and Lei Lounge. Plus, we’ll have some of our charming staff on hand to inform you about the history of these streetcars and our efforts to return them to the rail in San Diego. Not to be missed!
