Each fall, 7x7 tips its hat to the Bay Area's hottest movers, shakers and game changers. This year's Hot 20 comprises the brightest thinkers of our time, in fields as diverse as hip-hop and politics, philanthropy and fashion, theater and neuroscience.
On October 26th, in Anchor Distillery's Penthouse Tasting Room, 7x7 and VIP guests raised a glass to this year's crop of talents. San Francisco's leading bartenders, Kevin Diedrich of Pacific Cocktail Haven and Anthony Parks of Mourad, served up Junípero Gin specialty cocktails in celebration of its 20-year anniversary in San Francisco. Delicious bites, think peppered short rib pastrami and smoked winter squash, were prepared by Melons Catering & Events.
Several of this year's class attended the celebration including Charles Bilillies, owner of Souvla; Sarah Shourd, The Box playwright; Aubrie Pick and Eric Newtow, cofounders of the relationship magazine and podcast Together; Jake Anderson-Bialis, cofounder of FertilityIQ; Bryant Terry, Chef-in-Residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora; Caroline Ghosn, founder and CEO of Levo; and Brett Wingeier, cofounder of Halo Neuroscience.
Congrats to this year's Hot 20!
