In partnership with Union Square Main Streets, US2 hosted a 'Union Lunch' summer series showcasing delicious lunch fare, desserts, and retail options from different locally-owned and independently-operated businesses from the Union Square neighborhood. The event was held each Friday from July 17 to September 18 on Union Square Plaza. Featuring over 20 local vendors throughout the summer, the series featured live local music, lawn games, and other activities designed to showcase the unique businesses throughout the Square.
"Union Lunch was a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the best that Union Square has to offer - fantastic cuisine, eclectic music, interesting retail businesses, and - most importantly - an immersive community," said Greg Karczewski, president of US2. "Generating over $5,000 in additional revenue, the weekly Friday gathering helped to shine a spotlight on our local business, added additional daytime energy to the Square, and brought folks together for an early start to the weekend."
