3 Local Brands to Shop During Negroni Week
Negroni Week is here, which means San Francisco is filled with Campari-flavored opportunities to give back to organizations that make a difference. In addition to the usual Negroni-influenced bites around town, three local brands—Baggu, Public Bikes, and Sunski—are participating with designated charitable offers.
First up, local bag maker Baggu is donating 20 percent of all Red Standard Baggu bags ($10) sold during Negroni Week to the Surfrider Foundation to help support their mission to protect the world’s oceans, waves and beaches from plastic pollution. Additionally, BAGGU’s Valencia Street shop (911 Valencia) is hosting a happy hour on Wednesday, June 7, from 5:30–7:30pm. The event will feature Negroni-inspired bites and cocktails. You can RSVP here.
Looking for something a little sportier? During Negroni Week, Public Bikes will be donating 15 percent of their Red C7 bike sales (currently $499) to Muttville Senior Dog Center. (Campari-branded bikes, like the one pictured above, will also be available by special order). Additionally, Public will be hosting a Happy Hour on Thursday, June 8, from 5:30–7:30pm at their Hayes Valley location (549 Hayes Street). Be a good guest; let them know you're coming.
Finally, if you're in need of new shades for summer, San Francisco-based eyewear brand Sunski will be donating 20 percent of the sales from the Tortoise Fire Foothills glasses ($55) to the Surfrider Foundation during Negroni Week.
Last year, Negroni Week participants raised $400,000 for partner charities. Snap up a bag or bike or sunnies, and make this year's event an even bigger success.
