​By now you may have heard the bad news about Kool Herc, one of hip-hop's founding fathers: He needs a stent from a recent kidney stone removed, but doesn't have health insurance. Father Herc has to throw down a hefty deposit to get the medical work done.

To help out, both locations of S.F.'s Papalote Mexican Grill are donating 10 percent of today's proceeds to Herc's healthcare fund. See the full details on our sister blog, SFoodie, and find a reminder of why Herc is so regarded after the jump.

  • 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.
