What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working

Your Monday afternoon lunch break link bait.

Berkeley Feels 3.0 Magnitude Quake at 9:26 p.m. Sunday: The quake (actually, there were two; the second one was just a lot smaller and several minutes later) had an epicenter about two and a half miles from Berkeley. Also, yes, the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program has suspended most of its operations due to the federal shutdown, but still managed to post on its site. [H/t: Berkeleyside]

UC Berkeley Nobel Prize Winner Humblebrags Win On Facebook: No, SFist, Randy Shekman didn't really "humblebrag." He said that he "[lost] sleep today" over the call from Stockholm. That's pretty understandable. [H/t: SFist]

Michael Chiarello Is Esquire's Chef of the Year: Expect even longer waits at Coqueta, people. [H/t: Eater]

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass: Huge Crowds, Mellow Vibe: Obligatory slideshow. [H/t: Chronicle]

Castro Fair Marks 40 years: This also happened. Of note: 40 years ago this week, Harvey Milk debuted his political column with the Bay Area Reporter.  [H/t: Bay Area Reporter]
