An E-Scooter Bar Crawl & Silent Disco is Happening

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news



Original pic from the Chronicle but I gave it that Disco vibe.

In a response to the backlash surrounding the e-scooters that popped up all over San Francisco recently, the folks at Monarch have decided to do something really fun: Scootpocolipse Moving Silent Disco Party Parade!

Not only is this a fun and silly way to use the e scooters for something interesting, they’re also donating the proceeds to the Coalition on Homelessness. It’s all going down on  Sunday June 3rd, staring at noon.

All the info below is from this FB invite. It sounds like a ridiculously good time.

The world is coming to an end, the sidewalks are cracking, the buildings swaying, the laughter deafening, the costumes blazing, the scooters rumbling…it’s….


The world’s first moving San Francisco parade of scooters, skateboards, bikes, and all things with wheels (except shitty cars). We’re gathering at Monarch at 12pm noon on Sunday, June 3rd where we’ll be commandeering a butt load of electric scooters rallying the war cries, and setting sail through the neighborhoods of SF with a silent disco broadcasted from the back of a pedi-cab dj booth. We’ll then end with an outdoor dance party at Great Northern sometime around 6pm.

Body rockers to keep you DANCING > Benjamin K, Silky Thunder, Marky Ray, and Rob G
