A hotel doorman will honor cable car operators today by jumping on cable cars as they pass the hotel and handing the operators boxed lunches.

Barney Garcia, the doorman at the Omni San Francisco Hotel, will board 15 cable cars to hand out lunch, hotel general manager Colleen Cronin said.

This is the third year the Omni San Francisco has honored cable car conductors. Garcia will begin handing out the lunches at 11:30 a.m.

    Herb Caen used to write about how the cable car operators would pick up burgers for lunch from one of the places along the line in a similar fashion ages ago.
