Grub Street covers the San Francisco restaurant and dining scene with news about openings, closings, chefs, food trends, and more.
With a grant of $500,000 from the Ford Foundation to develop digital news sites, student reporters with the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley are covering neglected Bay Area Communities during core reporting classes. The funding also allows the school to hire two full-time multimedia instructors to teach multimedia skills during the reporting classes and oversee the development of these news websites. The Bay Area communities, increasingly ignored by the local news industry, are the focus of our “hyperlocal” websites.
I realized recently that I had neglected to post the good news here, that although I narrowly missed being elected delegate to the California Democratic Party, I managed to snag an appointment by representative Sandré Swanson. All of our local state and federal elected officials have a few slots for delegate appointments, so I'm grateful to have had this opportunity to continue my quest.

Here we go -- from our home at 5th & Mission in San Francisco, The Chronicle and SFGate.com present the Culture Blog.
Written by a group of columnists, reporters and editors from both the newspaper and Web site (see Bios), we'll be posting daily items -- newsy, opinionated, critical or simply silly -- on our various arts, culture, media, and Web-related interests and obsessions.
Input from you, our readers, is all important, and very soon you'll be able to post your comments directly to the Culture Blog.
You can also email us your tips and comments directly. Email addresses for each author appear on every post and on the Bios page, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you write to recommend a blog or other online source, make sure to include the complete URL and a note explaining your recommendation.
A note about group blogs (known also as collaborative blogs): we like them. Inspirations for Culture Blog include pioneering sites such as Boing Boing, MetaFilter, and in the world of mainstream journalism, Guardian Online's venerable Newsblog, started back in 2001.

Basically, a regular guy that’s been in the area for about a decade, in SF for 6 years. Last summer, ‘07, I bought a condo in the Tenderloin — the American dream. From the perspective of a guy who had actually only been downtown a few times — the “dream” was initially more like a psycho-nightmare. Uh, what is that smell? Look at that, a guy using a car mirror to inject (I dunno) into his neck.
My name is Sally (if that wasn’t obvious already) and I want to thank you for following me as I tour around looking for fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m going to be exploring the Bay – uncovering hidden gems as I go – and using this blog to document my experience.
I have so much fun bopping around from restaurants in the Bay Area to funky shops and boutiques that I decided it would be selfish of me NOT to share all of my experiences with the world.
Whether you’re a bored local or are planning on visiting San Francisco, my goal is for you to discover something new, fun and maybe even thought provoking to do in the Bay Area through this collection of blog posts.
Please note that I live in Marin County so I may be a little biased toward things to do in Marin and I’ll probably focus on more things to do in Marin County than anywhere else in the Bay. However, I promise I will be adventurous as I sally across the bridges and step over the county line on a regular basis. Knowing I have to document lots of lesser known fun things to do in the Bay Area will force me to try new things and get out of my comfort zone.
Shopping locally-owned and independent not only preserves our unique Oakland flavor, but it's better for the economy and environment.
I am a Mommy raising our daughter to protect and respect the environment. I wonder, what does it all mean? What can I do (what can we all do) to make our world a better place?
There are so many apartments and condos throughout California and beyond that have no curbside recycling programs. Imagine the hundreds of thousands of children who attend school every day, and have no idea what this simple, common idealogy really means?
