Hotels everywhere roll out the carpet with special events for the Christmas season. Here in San Francisco, the legendary InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco does the same. Think afternoon Holiday Teas served with individual 3-tiered trays holding tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets. And the 12 Cocktails of Christmas, each served with a souvenir cocktail charm--how about a Ten Lords a-Leaping made with Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Chambord, cranberry juice, and fresh raspberries? Earlier, Thanksgiving features a petting zoo in the lobby, and later, New Year's Eve brings on a New Year's Eve dinner and dancing special at the Top of the Mark.
