If you’ve ever secretly longed for a simpler time, when women were women, men were men, we all smoked cigarettes, and everyone wore a hat, hike on up to Nob Hill’s TOP OF THE MARK for Tuesday pairings of classic films and wines. The Mark Hopkins InterContinental will be hosting screenings all summer long at their classic rooftop lounge. Nostalgic for retro pricing, too? No problem: films and tastings are complimentary but the suggested donation is a mere $3 to benefit BayKids, a Bay Area organization committed to helping children with medical challenges express themselves through filmmaking.
Wine tastings are every Tuesday 5:30pm-7:30pm, starting May 29th. Film screenings begin at 7:30pm and include Gone with the Wind, Mary Poppins, Sunset Boulevard, and Rear Window (you can view the entire schedule here). Domaine Chandon brut and rosé will be on offer in May and June, and later in the summer they’ll begin pouring Wild Horse and Spellbound reds and whites. If you’re really looking to impress your gal or guy, VIP packages are also available for front-row seats. 1 Nob Hill (at Mason and California).
