San Francisco Party Buses
Australian centenarian Ivy Russell of Percy Miles Villa, Kirrawee decided to celebrate her 100th birthday with a bit of luxury and flair by arriving at her birthday party in the back of a luxurious limousine. Ivy celebrated this impressive milestone on July 30 along with 50 family members and friends at a swanky golf resort. A special birthday cake was flown in from hundreds of miles away for the occasion and arrived intact and, reportedly, delicious.
San Francisco Giants fans have enjoyed a very good run over the last year or so, and the way the standings are shaping up, this run is a long way from over. If you and your crew are making plans for attending the playoffs this fall, why not rent a San Francisco limousine or party bus from NLS Limo and leave the driving to the pros? While other Giants fans are struggling with traffic to and from the playoff games, you and your friends and family can be maxing and relaxing in the back of your Bay Area limo or party bus!
According to the latest figures from the General Services Administration (GSA), the number of limousines bought and used by the Obama administration is up sharply over the last couple of years. The GSA found that there were 412 limousines used by various administration officials in 2010, which is up from 238 used in 2008, a 73 percent rise. Administration officials say the increase is due to security concerns, but in an unusual twist, the GSA admits that its limo statistics may be suspect as it uses the term “limo” to refer to a number of different vehicles and uses.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the state agency that oversees limousine services and other for-hire transportation companies, recently released its summary of enforcement actions against ground transportation companies for the first quarter of 2011. The CPUC enforces regulations, issues licenses and oversees around 5,000 limousine services in our state, including NLS Limo, the premier San Francisco limousine service.
A group of fans from a rival team attacked a party bus transporting a group of English soccer fans recently after an important tournament. The party bus was carrying a group of fans of the Manchester City soccer club after their FA Cup semifinal match with archrival Manchester United when it needed to stop for gas. While the driver was filling up the tank, a rowdy group of United fans surrounded the vehicle and began throwing bottles of antifreeze from an outside display nearby. They then began kicking the party bus, smashing the windshield and kicking in the side panels where luggage is often stored.
Here’s a story that caught our eye. It may not pertain to luxury vehicles, but, as unapologetic car nuts, we thought it was worthy of mention. We also think it’s worthy of condemnation! Reports out of Nevada claim that search engine giant Google has hired a lobbyist to press Nevada lawmakers to pass two bills currently under review. If passed, they would make Nevada the first place on the planet where driverless cars are legal.
A recent story out of Wisconsin gave us a bolt of inspiration on how we can accommodate craft beer lovers with our San Francisco party buses. Hop Head Brewery, a Wisconsin-based craft brewer with a passionate following among Midwestern beer lovers, has created a new branch of the business to stir sales and make sure beer lovers can imbibe to their hearts’ content and get home safely. The Hop Head Beer Tour Company recently opened for business, and, judging by participation and enthusiasm, this idea is a hit with Wisconsinites who seek the best in malt-based beverages.
The last several years have been a mixed bag of emotions for area hockey fans. Our Sharks have been very good for a very long time now, but have fallen short of the ultimate prize: Lord Stanley’s Cup. This year’s playoffs are fast approaching. While the playoff schedule is still a few weeks away, now is the time to begin planning for attending games with your crew. Here at NLS Limo, we’re hockey fans, too, and we want to be your first choice of San Francisco limousine companies for the playoffs and beyond!
Pub crawls on St. Patrick’s Day are a tradition going back for many Bay Area residents. After all, how can an Irishman, Irishwoman or anyone hoping to be one at least for one day confine himself or herself to one or two bars on this traditional day of merriment? Miss all the festivities in our city’s many drinking establishments? Not a chance! Deal with driving, parking and all the attendant hassles of each? There’s no chance there either unless you want to spend most of your evening driving around while your friends are engaged in activities more consistent with the spirit of the day. Rather than relegate yourself to an evening of anguish behind the wheel, why not rent a San Francisco party bus from NLS Limo?
A California lawmaker has proposed legislation that will close a loophole in an existing law and will make limousine companies responsible for underage drinking that goes on in their vehicles. Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, recently proposed Assembly Bill 45, also known as the Brett Studebaker Law, to be passed in the California state legislature. If passed, the law will require California limousine services, party bus operators and other group transportation companies classified as “carriers” to check the identification of all passengers and require anyone under 21 to sign an agreement not to drink while riding in the vehicle. Current state laws require chauffeurs to sign such an agreement before transporting passengers. If an underage passenger violates the terms of the agreement, the driver must terminate the contract and return all passengers to the point of origin.
