Outside Lands, One of the Biggest Music Festivals in the Country, Returns to SF

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on June 28, 2019

These days, it can seem as though the amount of bands considered to be “necessary listening” is borderline incomprehensible. Especially if one is a fan of going and seeing the acts live, how is it possible to make it to all of the shows featuring beloved acts? Lack of time, money, and energy begin to take their toll, and soon we find ourselves wondering if it is even worth trying to go see live music anymore. Better to just stay home, make a pot of tea, and put some Keith Jarrett on the turntable. While we certainly understand this decision, we also know that for many of you it is not this easy. Which is why God invented the music festival.

This Weekend in San Francisco: The Murray Invitational

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on July 22, 2016

What can we say about Bill Murray that hasn’t been said thousands of times already? We know about his antics (sneaking up to people in Central Park, putting his hands over their eyes, and when they turn around saying, “nobody will ever believe you”), and we know about his movies. We can’t help but love him because we appreciate the way he transcends every expectation we hold for celebrities and maintains his humanness. Bill Murray has become something of an adjective, something we strive to become in the same way we want to become generous or humble. In San Francisco, these feelings have congealed into one marvelous event: The Murray Invitational.

New California Party Bus Law Goes Into Effect in 2013

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on January 11, 2013

We have written about California’s new party bus law in previous posts, but since we are nearing the end of 2012 and the law goes into effect on Jan. 1, now seems like a good time to remind readers about it. The new law, formally known as Assembly Bill 45, closes a loophole in an existing law regarding underage drinking on party buses. Laws prohibiting underage consumption of alcohol in limousines have been on the books for many years. However, because party buses are a newer type of luxury transportation, there were no laws expressly prohibiting minors from drinking alcohol on these luxury vehicles.

Thief Hires Limousine for Getaway Vehicle

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on December 11, 2012

A New Hampshire man was recently indicted on charges of burglary and grand larceny after he allegedly stole cash from the motel where he was living and hired a limousine as a getaway car. The 27-year-old Concord, N.H. man was apprehended in a nearby town after allegedly taking a lockbox containing between $2,000 and $3,000 from the office of the Shore Lodge in Onley on Oct. 7. Arresting officers also found that he was in possession of a six-pack of Corona beer with one of the bottles mostly empty. The allegedly stolen cash was stuffed in the six-pack carton along with the remaining bottles of beer.

The Onley Police Department was alerted after the motel manager discovered that someone had broken into the office and taken the lockbox. The manager and motel employees told police that they thought the suspect’s room would be a good place to begin their investigation. When police entered the suspect’s motel room, they found the empty lockbox but few other clues as to where he might have fled with the money. Later that evening, police received a tip that the suspect had been seen near a local convenience store. Shortly thereafter, they received another call saying that the suspect had been seen getting into a white limousine that stopped briefly at the convenience store before heading south on U.S. Route 13.

Olney police alerted other police departments along the suspect’s likely escape route. The limo was stopped, and the suspect apprehended in a short period of time. The suspect tried to use an alias during his arrest but provided his real name during the arrest interview. Police found that the suspect has quite a criminal record, including convictions for being a habitual offender, credit card fraud, a protective order violation, reckless conduct, driving after license revocation, unauthorized use of rented property, resisting arrest, breach of bail and other charges.

This thief may be a thoroughly unsavory character and a criminal, but he does have a sense of style. If you and your family and friends are planning an adventure and need a Bay Area limousine for your own limo getaway vehicle, we can definitely help, provided you’re getting away from everyday responsibilities and your sense of style does not include larceny, of course! All of our San Francisco limousines, party buses and other luxury vehicles are available at very affordable rates and can be stocked with your choice of beer and other refreshing beverages. If you’re thinking about making your own getaway with a group of friends or perhaps an intimate group of two, just give us a call at NLS Limo at 800-339-8936.

Will Ferrell Auctioning Craft Beer Bus Tour for Charity

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on November 12, 2012

Comedian Will Ferrell is auctioning off a craft beer bus tour for four lucky winners who will join the movie star for a tour of craft beer bars in Southern California this December. On Dec. 12, the winners will join Mr. Ferrell for lunch at the Blind Lady Ale House after sampling craft beers at three bars known for their superb selection of micro brews. The four winners will receive VIP treatment while sampling craft beers on and off the bus with 120 other beer lovers on board. Ferrell is auctioning the experience to raise money for Cancer for College, a charitable organization established by his longtime friend Craig Pollard. The organization raises funds to help cancer survivors earn college educations after they recover.

Ferrell has announced that in addition to a nice lunch and some tasty brews, each guest will also receive "the most glorious red jumpsuit you have ever worn in order to get into the spirit of the holiday season." The jumpsuits are a tribute to Mr. Ferrell’s performance in the popular holiday movie “Elf” released in 2003. Beer lovers who want to bid on this beer bus tour have until Nov. 14 to take their chance on bending an elbow (and a story or two) with Mr. Ferrell and contributing to a worthy cause. Organizers hope to raise $20,000 for Cancer for College recipients.

Micro brew fans here in the Bay Area who want to organize their own craft beer pub crawl but would rather not deal with traffic and parking hassles can rent one of our San Francisco luxury coaches for the ultimate brews cruise! We offer several VIP luxury tour buses from which our guests can choose where they can enjoy their favorite craft beers en route to their destinations as long as everyone is of legal drinking age.

Governor Brown Signs Party Bus Bill Into Law

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on October 1, 2012

We have blogged quite a bit over the last several months about a proposed law that would toughen regulations and penalties for allowing underage drinking on party buses. The “party bus” law would close existing loopholes in California law that apply to alcohol consumption in limousines and other types of transportation and make it illegal for minors to drink alcohol while on board party buses. After debate in the State Assembly and Senate, Assembly Bill 45 passed both houses of the legislature and was recently signed into law by Governor Brown.

You may remember that the bill was introduced by Assemblyman Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo) after a couple of tragic and irresponsible accidents involving excessive alcohol consumption aboard party buses. Beginning Jan.1, 2013, party buses carrying minors will be required to have a chaperone on board to ensure no underage drinking occurs. If minors do consume alcohol while riding in a party bus, chaperones could face criminal charges. Chauffeurs and party bus rental services can also get into trouble if minors drink on board party buses. Chauffeurs with three such violations could face misdemeanor charges, and party bus operators would face fines up to $2,000 for the first two offenses and have their licenses revoked for three or more violations.

The two fatal accidents prompted Assemblyman Hill to introduce this legislation.

"These incidents caused me to say, why could these things be happening?" Hill explained recently to reporters. "When these tragedies occurred a couple of years ago, what this new legislation hoped to do was to close that loophole and provide the same restrictions on buses as it does to limousines."

Many bar owners in San Francisco have banned party buses from their establishments after growing tired of party buses dropping off drunken riders at their businesses.

"Most clubs I know say ‘no’ to party buses," Steven Lee, owner of The Grand nightclub and member of the San Francisco Entertainment Commission. "People do all their drinking on the buses and it’s not a benefit to the club. We have to deal with all the security and all the hassle without any of the benefit."

As we have stated many times before, the new law won’t change our policies on underage drinking or rowdy behavior on our Bay Area limos, party buses, limo buses, luxury coaches and other types of transportation. The safety of our guests has always been and always will be our primary consideration, and we do not tolerate any illegal or reckless behavior. Our other consideration is that each of our guests has a fun, comfortable, memorable and affordable limo experience! If we sound like your idea of a professional and responsible San Francisco party bus service, call us at NLS Limo today at 800-339-8936 to reserve one for your next special occasion.
