Local grilled cheese joint gets tons of cash
American Grilled Cheese in San Francisco (South Park, South of Market) wins a $250K for their local impact, one of 12 business in the US. More than 3 billion voters voted.
Bread is local. Cheese comes from Marin. No secret we are foodies here.

My favorite is their cheese puns on the chalkboard. If you haven't been, it's a must.

Jenny Oh and stolen bike awareness 
She has had a bike and a wheelset stolen this month, so she has done a ton of detective work and social media exposure. Also she recently posted this pretty cool story which has been making the blog rounds: Rescued in Portland: A Stolen De Rosa Bicycle Has Been Found After 6 Years!
Make sure to check her twitter feed often and she has also created a stolen bike group on flickr:
