It's that time of year again: Clusterfest returns with comedy, live music and much more. Headliners include comedians John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt while TV fans will be able to do their best Kramer impression on the recreated set of Jerry's apartment from the iconic 90s sitcom Seinfeld or transport themselves to the electric city of Scranton, Pennsylvania on the set of the office from the eponymous and equally-iconic 2000s series.

Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.
