Thanks to Jon Bon Jovi, this summer, you can guzzle wine and scarf burgers and help the homeless at the same time.
The rocker and his son Jesse Bongioivi have teamed with the Umami Burger chain for a collaboration which runs now through July 14. Hampton Water, the award-winning rosé wine that Jon and Jesse created, will be sold at all Umami Burger locations during that time period, and so will a special menu item called "The Hampton Burger."
One dollar from the sale of each $13 dollar Hampton Burger will benefit Jon's charity organization the JBJ Soul Foundation, which works to end poverty, hunger and homelessness in the U.S.
What do you get for your 13 bucks? A miso-and-mustard-garnished Wagyu beef patty between two layers of American cheese and mayo, topped with roasted tomatoes, diced raw onions, a pickled beet slice, crumbled feta, shredded iceberg lettuce and green chili vinaigrette.
As for Hampton Water, it's been recognized as one of the top five rosés in the world since it launched in January of 2018. It'll also be featured on Jon's upcoming Runaway to Paradise fan cruise, which is sailing from Barcelona, Spain, to Palma de Mallorca and runs from August 26 to August 30.
