Melissa Davis

Melissa Davis

From fashion shows in Manhattan to lifestyle PR in Oakland, Melissa Davis remains both captivated and au courant on the topic of well-curated craftsmanship. Prior to founding her public relations firm Ruby Press, Melissa spent eight years in New York as a fashion editor for vaunted publications. When she arrived in San Francisco, she became the Northern California correspondent for a fashion and lifestyle magazine and was the first fashion editor at an online platform for various topics focused on city living.  In 2003, Melissa moved across the Bay to sunny Oakland, where she learned about the city’s many micro-hoods and its resident artist-innovators and mover-makers. Inspired, she penned her first book, This Is Oakland: A Guide to the City’s Most Interesting Place, to share her favorite discoveries.

Alexandra Kenin

Alexandra Kenin

(2)

Founder of Urban Hiker San Francisco

In 2004, Alexandra Kenin visited San Francisco for the first time and never wanted to return to her home on the East Coast. She did. But in 2007, she finally bought her one-way ticket back to the Bay Area as a Google marketing manager. On weekends, the transplanted Jersey girl explored her new home on foot. When she discovered the Embarcadero via the Vallejo and Filbert Street steps, she became hooked on urban hiking. Today, she has fallen in with a band of fellow enthusiasts. Through monthly day hikes of up to 30 miles, Alexandra and her friends explore secret, hidden spots throughout the city.

Bar Car

Bar Car

Premium Beverage Car

Taking a page from trending food trucks, restaurant and bar impresario Greg Medow (an investor of Mission Bowling Club, Delfina, and Foreign Cinema) merged his beverage background with a love of vintage design to create Bar Car. The full bar was a three-year passion project — that's how long it took to turn a 1965 Airstream shell into a Pinterest-worthy mobile. The mid-century modern trailer, available for tailgates, weddings, and outdoor celebrations, touts everything from mahogany shelves lined with premium bottles to self-serve beer taps.
