1. The National Geographic Photo Contest has drawn more than 4,000 entries. Sift through the stunning pictures of people, places, and nature here.

5. I’m so excited to check out Sierra Nevada’s brand new Torpedo Room on Fourth Street in Berkeley. I love that a small slice of Chico has found a home in the bay and that I can now find some of Sierra’s more rare brews nearby.
