As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work around the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground, to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. From Camelia Skikos' headline-making fall collection to a chef's reaction to Yelp reviews, here's everything you need to know this week.

Ever wonder how restaurateurs react to snarky Yelp reviews? Satisfy that burning curiosity with this video of Perbacco’s chef reading patron's complaints, served with a side of sarcasm. (Eater SF)

Yet another standout S.F. creative has designed an exclusive piece for Of A Kind. Kate Jones of Ursa Major (remember her refined nautical style?) designed a set of Loup earrings our lobes simply can't go without. (Of A Kind)

Got summer travel on the books? You probably won't have to rent a car, thanks to Lyft’s massive influx of funding ($250 million, not that we’re counting or anything). The app-based cab company will continue to launch in cities across the country, and even has its eye on some international destinations. Countdown to Lyft off... (Lyft)
