This spring, Cabrio Taxi's pedicab drivers have been competing against neighboring San Francisco-based businesses in the Ferry Bocce league at Justin Herman Plaza in front of San Francisco's iconic Ferry Building. Around 40 teams gathered weekly on the newly revamped bocce courts to try their hand at bocce, and even get some pro tips from Bocce international competitors like Benji Tosi, who has been known to make cameos at the games. Teams play against each other in random order throughout the season, ultimately competing for a spot in the semi-finals to go on for the big wins.
The finals boiled down to one champion team per night, and then finally, a Battle Royale for the League Champions. After a nail biting semi-final (13 - 12!) Team Cabrio pulled out a win of 13 - 10!
Pedicab drivers Paulo Serna (team captain), Ward Davis, April Atencio and Brett Sherman (pictured L to R above) will be back next season for more Bocce on the waterfront.
For Here or To Go? is an independent production with big ambitions. The movie is a romantic comedy drama about the trials and tribulations of Indian immigrants in Silicon Valley. It’s a passion project for the entire production crew, from Bollywood stars Ali Fazal (Fast and Furious 7), Omi Vaidya (The Office), Amitosh Nagpal, and former Miss India-America, Melanie Kannokada (Parenthood) to director, Rucha Humnabadkar, and writer Rishi Bhilawadikar, who all agreed to work on the project because of the strength of the script and the power of the film’s message.
Micah met the crew on the waterfront on a chilly evening in late October. They shot a night scene on the Embarcadero, which, in the film, will be the end of the leading couple's first date.
Micah said "The crew was very professional; they were laying out the shots as we went, but even though it was improvised, everything went really smoothly. We had a fun time shooting, and the leads had great chemistry."
Both Micah and Cabrio are excited for their on-screen debuts. For Here or To Go? is expected to premiere in Bay Area independent theaters in 2014.
