Few workers have been had a more turbulent journey through the pandemic than hospitality industry workers, and a trio of of businesses are teaming up this month on a campaign to benefit them.
Junipero Gin, which has been made by hand in San Francisco for 25 years and is best known for being among the pioneers of American craft gin, is joining up with a pair of staple Mill Valley restaurants, Bungalow 44 and Buckeye, to benefit In the Weeds, a nonprofit charity for hospitality professionals. Bungalow and Buckeye are among the Marin restaurants in the month of July giving back to the mental, physical and financial needs of hospitality industry professionals who have been hard hit by the pandemic.
For the “Sub Junipero” campaign throughout July, anytime a customer at either of these restaurants asks to “Sub Junipero” in their cocktail of choice, Junipero will donate $1 to In the Weeds to cultivate a safe, inclusionary and sustainable hospitality industry for the people who power it.
“With the reopening of America, Junipero Gin recognizes that the path to recovery for many of the chefs, cooks, bartenders, servers and hosts in the hospitality industry is still a work in progress, with a long road still ahead,” Junipero said in announcing the campaign.
