The Bloodhound, where everybody knows your name.

Every few weeks, GFI friends and film industry folks get out of the office and head to our favorite neighborhood bar to catch up, talk shop or just play a heated game of Buck Hunter.

Last week, we raised our glasses for another GFI Happy Hour at the one and only Bloodhound in San Francisco. We had one of the largest turnouts yet, and a few lucky winners walked away with some pretty sweet raffle prizes, including a Flip video camera, a night at the Gaige House in Sonoma, a 10-film CineVoucher for the San Francisco International Film Festival and a package of gift cards to renowned restaurants and eateries throughout the city. Best part? Everyone who entered the raffle received a Global Lens DVD, and all proceeds went right back to GFI’s Granting Program!

Check out our photos–courtesy Kaydin Carlsen–for a re-cap of the night, and if you’re a local that wants to join in the fun, send us an email! After all, you know what they say about all work and no play.

It's probably time to go home when...
