Oops. In SF Weekly's 7-Day Dish e-newsletter, we described a benefit for leak-stricken Gulf fisherman: Mission restaurant Maverick would be setting aside proceeds May 20 for the Greater New Orleans Foundation's Gulf Coast oil spill fund. Turns out plans have changed, says Maverick's Scott Youkilis. The benefit's now tentatively slated for a date in early June, and looks to include more than just Maverick. Youkilis says he's started lining up buy-in by other S.F. restaurants; similar benefits will go down in Chicago, Washington D.C., Ann Arbor, Mich., and a handful of other cities. Youkilis says Maverick will probably offer either a portion of all proceeds that night, or all the proceeds on certain Gulf seafood items (flounder, shrimp). We'll key you in about details ― including other participating local eateries ― as they emerge.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
