October is Eat Local Month in San Francisco, and with this comes a host of amazing events that we'll talk about as the days unfold. There are also many happenings planned that celebrate this theme, even amongst those that aren't formally affiliated with Eat Local Month. (It seems to be something we like to celebrate at all times.) We don't want to leave you hungry in the meantime before we cook up more helpings, so here's a Cliff's Notes-style hitlist targeting several ways to enjoy your Culinary Rocktober.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
