ABOUT THE TEAM
Raquel was born and raised in Napa. With a lifelong passion for food, she founded See.Eat.Love. Food Tours in 2014 and most recently Drink Up Bay Area, an experiential events company, to highlight local small businesses in the food, beverage and spirits industries.
Prior to starting See.Eat.Love., Raquel spent over 10 years working with industry-leading advertising agencies developing campaigns for brands such as Clorox, Pure Bar, Doubletree by Hilton and more.
Give Raquel a good sipping tequila, and she’ll feel right at home.
Susan Eggett was born in and raised by Oakland California. She is a product of summer afternoons spent at the Coliseum and a childhood thinking Jack London lived next door to Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon.
Her love of American craft spirits has grown over her 12 years as a bartender, published mixologist, spirits educator and event producer for the Beverage Academy at Bourbon and Branch, Forbidden Island, Moet Hennessy and Pixar, Last Rites, and Sobre Mesa.
Her approach to cocktails is most often conceptual, seeking to convey a narrative, so it's no wonder The Hemingway Daiquiri is her go to drink.
Oakland Cocktail Week would not be possible without the amazing support of our advisory teams.
