With a plethora of crowd-funded projects in the works around the Bay Area, it's hard to know where to focus your energy (and your wallet). Well, we'll tell you. From a climbing wall on Market Street to a wearable conversation-starter to cookies with a surprise ingredient, chip in to help fund these five locally-grown projects.
In the need of a little pick me up? Blood sugar got you down? We've scoured the city to find the chewiest, doughiest chocolate chip cookies out there to satisfy any sweet tooth.
7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.
If you've only had Jake Godby's innovative ice cream at Humphry Slocombe, you're missing out. His cookies are buttery, soft, and packed with rich chocolate, perhaps my favorite in SF. Pour yourself a tall glass of milk, or indulge with a scoop of Secret Breakfast.

A Holiday Bazaar at 18 Reasons
This year, we're saying an affectionate sayonara to the big box stores. Why shop there when you can pick up loads of adorably stuff, made locally, at any number of great shops? Get started at the Mini Holiday Bazaar at 18 Reasons tonight from 6-9 p.m., where you can pick up calendars, marmalades, home pickling kits and more for your foodiest friends.
Jessica and I finished up our holiday-cookie–tasting extravaganza weeks ago, but the fruits of our labor can now be viewed right here. Tasting over 100 cookies from SF’s best bakeries sounds fun until you’re on your fifth really mediocre Mexican wedding cookie, feeling vaguely strung out on sugar (not to mention the suspicious dusting of powder on your nose).
