7x7 and Cointreau proudly presented a special happy-hour fundraiser at Lookout in the Castro, in support of local filmmakers Robert Cortlandt and Dan Goldes of Urbanstreet Films and their new documentary, 5 Blocks, which examines the changes taking shape in San Francisco's Mid-Market neighborhood.
It's no secret that San Francisco's mid-Market district, between 5th through 10th Streets, has a complicated history that is now butting up against an unprecedented influx of tech-driven development. Local filmmakers Robert Cortlandt and Dan Goldes' new documentary is raising a lot of attention, and we invite you to find out more about it, over drinks.
One thing we've learned while playing in the Castro: there are few things better to combat the chilly fog than a good wig—fellas, can we get an amen?!—so what better way to warm the cockles of your heart than with a drag fundraiser! This Sunday afternoon in the heart of the gayborhood, Lookout wants you to slap on a lacefront and pose for the camera with your best pretty lady face to win tickets to one of the season's most raucous events.

What an historic day today! SF Pride this year is sure to be extra special—we hope you can join us at our event on Thu 6/27, to celebrate the latest steps towards equality—let's all cheer from the Lookout's famous balcony overlooking Market St. in the Castro. Happy Pride and congratulations to all!
Join 7x7 and help us launch this year's Pride weekend at one of San Francisco's most iconic venues in the heart of the Castro—the Lookout!
On September 28, Lookout celebrated a milestone anniversary with a warm and lively party welcoming staunch regulars and enthusiastic visitors—a fitting crowd, given its well-earned reputation as a premier destination in San Francisco's historic Castro neighborhood.
A steady stream of friendly faces filled the bar from open until close to show their appreciation and raise a congratulatory glass. The bar was festively decorated for the occasion and the staff gave out custom anniversary tank tops all night to guests.
