From the local scene:

  • KGO picks up the story about another local restaurant accusing Yelp of bullying and selling advertisement to improve reviews. That’s a good story, but the other good story here is that KGO used their big touch board/magic wall gadget to zoom in on the Yelp page and make a pointy arrow to the restaurant name. Just the thing it was invented for. [KGO]
  • A review of downtown’s Shorty Goldstein’s finds some faults with the rye bread and the pastrami, but everything else is good enough: “Grievances aside, Shorty Goldstein’s is a welcome addition to the downtown lunch scene, especially for deli-starved East Coast transplants.” [SF Examiner]
  • The latest on the two employees that walked out of a pizza place. [East Bay Express]

From the national scene:

  • Hudson Valley Foie Gras responds to anti-foie activist hack: “This criminal action has been reported and is being investigated by state and federal authorities.” [Eater National]
  • Italy’s beermakers are rising. [Food Wine]
  • A store was forced to pull a bag of nuts from its shells, because it didn’t have the proper nuts warning … on the bag of nuts. [BBC]
  • Man builds a wood-burning stove that looks like Futurama’s Bender. Sure, why not. [Laughing Squid]
