In honor of Bike Month, we present part two of our Bay Area Street Portraits from the talented filmmaker, Charlotte Buchen. This week, Charlotte profiles Sal Bednarz, who started Actual Cafe in Oakland:

Sal Bednarz believes in creating community, so when he opened a newcafé in his beloved neighborhood in Oakland, he gave it bike-friendlyfeatures. But Sal’s not trying to make a statement – he just thinksbike parking should come standard.

To celebrate Bay Area Street Portraits, Sal is holding a screening at Actual Cafe (6334 San Pablo) this Saturday at 7pm that will launch the first weekend of the cafe's entertainment series. You'll get to see the series in its entirety. Come check it out!
