HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM SOMBA!!!

Shop Local.

Recently, SF kicked off the Shop & Dine in the 49 initiative, which focuses on bringing spending back into our diverse neighborhoods. By shopping, eating, drinking and playing in our neighborhoods, we ensure these unique corridors remain thriving, successful, and vibrant.

Every dollar spent at local businesses in San Francisco directly supports jobs and our local economy. San Francisco has more than 90,000 businesses, including more than 7,700 restaurants, cafes, food stores, and beverage establishments that employ approximately 100,000 local residents. A 1 percent increase in spending at restaurants and retailers would generate an additional $100 million into our economy.  Check out Mayor Ed Lee’s full shop local challenge here.

Picnic on Third Grand Opening!

Opening day for Picnic on Third, a new all-day option for SoMa and South Park.

The latest cafe in that vicinity, it is the brainchild of Natalia Bushyager and Leigh Loper, two young cooks who met at Foreign Cinema several years ago.  At Picnic on Third, which is open weekdays from 7am to 7pm, they are crafting daily changing menus, available for takeout or eat-in. The twist is that there are often themes to the daily menu, such as today’s South Carolina (black eyed pea stew, $6; braised pork with Southern spices, $6). Each day also includes a “chef’s composition” that includes an entree and sides; for example, today’s $12 whole roasted chicken with fingerling potato salad, stewed greens, and pickles.  Check out the press on Inside Scoop.
