For once, there's a good reason to post a food photo to social media.
Humboldt County Restaurant Week starts Friday, September 26th, and the most mouth-wateringly good photo will win you, well, more watery mouth.
Get to a participating restaurant during #HumCoRestaurantWeek and treat yourself to something good! Humboldt's finest chefs have some special surprises in store. While you're there, take a delicious-looking photo and post it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #HumCoRestaurantWeek so we can find it.
We'll post the best photos we find and let the upvoting decide the winner! First place gets a $100 gift certificate to a local restaraunt, second place is worth $50 and the third place photo wins you $50.
HOW TO GET FREE FOOD
1. Go to a participating restaurant between Friday, Sept 26 and Sunday, Oct 5.

This event will have live music and dancing and will help fund the services of Arcata House Partnership. It is also a birthday party for their E.D. Fox Olson.

These cheeky Brits, along with a cheeky Bob Ornelas, showed up in Ferndale today. Turns out, they're the Pacific Pedallers (sic), biking their way from the Canadian border to the Mexican border.
They're also raising money for the UK's version of Wounded Warrior, Help For Heroes and to help fight Alzheimers and dementia.
Follow the Pacific Pedallers on Twitter here.
Good luck, British homies!

The 3 foot passing law that was passed earlier this year, went into effect today adding a new layer of safety to all bike commuters. We also talked about SB1151, a bill that is now on the Governor's desk waiting to be signed. The law would increase traffic fines in school zones. Most of the time today was spent with Carol Van der Meer of Friends of the Dunes about all the various trail opportunities that exist in the Manila Dunes.
