Pencil This In: Hitchcock's Vertigo, Zin Tasting, Improv Detention, Glenn Gould Documentary
Hitchcock's masterpiece Vertigo is playing tonight at the Hammer Museum as part of Julian Hoeber's Demon Hill installation that is "an homage to the anxiety-producing, perception-warping" spots of the American roadside tradition. Sounds hoity-toity but...come on...it's Vertigo! Jacque Tati's Playtime will also be screened. Tickets required, but they're free.
Mr. Hipster Enology is hosting a Zinfandel from Paso Robles tasting at Whole Foods in Venice tonight. $20 for five wines and there will be food parings for each wine. That's a pretty good wine/food get for a Wednesday night! Starts at 7 p.m.
Second City Studio hosts Detention Hall every Wednesday night. If you're in need of some laughter (and who among us isn't?) watching the Teen Troupe commit various acts of improv is not a shabby way to spend an evening. The show is free and starts at 7 p.m.
