Panic 'Shroom

As the Cliff House's decision to reopen its doors flies in the face of the asinine government shutdown, Maverick is feeling the effects in a different way: their supply of foraged matsutake mushrooms is in danger. The shutdown has shuttered the offices that issue permits for matsutake picking, but the local sheriff's department is still up and actively issuing $400+ fines to foragers caught without their permits. No legal foraging means the supply of foraged wild mushrooms to local restaurants could run out indefinitely. [EaterWire]
