At the Grand Hyatt San Francisco, we always look for ways to give back to our community and you can participate too, simply by ordering a glass of wine! OneUP Lounge is proud to present wines from ‘Save Me, San Francisco’ Wine Co. (also the title of the popular album by San Francisco based artist Train), which is a collaboration between winemaker James Foster and Jimmy Stafford, Train’s guitarist, who loves California wines. Each bottle of wine is uniquely designed with beautiful artwork and named after one of Train’s songs. Much of the proceeds go to support Family House, a nonprofit organization in the Bay Area providing temporary housing for families of seriously ill children.
So, go out, have fun and enjoy all of the exciting events in San Francisco! Whether you want to listen to live music or learn how to swing dance, there will always be something to do in Union Square this summer!
