Last-Minute Labor Day Schemes

Forget to make Labor Day weekend plans? Here are some surefire, spur-of-the-moment ideas:

Sip vino in Sonoma. Celebrate the upcoming grape harvest by attending the epicurean weekend packed full of winemakers' dinners and tastings galore. Sonoma Wine Country Weekend runs from noon on Friday through 6 p.m. Sunday.

Soar Over Santa Cruz this Weekend

It's a bird, it's a plane...no, it's just that giant inflatable helium structure, the Eureka blimp, you've seen hovering over the Bay Area on many occasions.

And now she'll add another destination to her repertoire of areas traveled, which include San Francisco, Oakland, Monterey, Los Angeles and Wine Country. Beginning Saturday, Airship Ventures' famed Zeppelin NT will depart from Moffett Field with its final destination that hippie, seaside community, Santa Cruz.

Big Blimpin' - Win Tickets to Ride the Zeppelin

We went blimpin' (or rather, zepplin-ing) around the Bay with Airship Ventures. Watch the video below to get a feel for what San Francisco looks like from 1,000 feet up. See something that doesn't belong? Tell us how many times the bird appears in the video in the comments below, and we'll pick someone at random to win two tickets to ride in the Zeppelin.

Holy Blimp!

South Bay startup Airship Ventures has commissioned a German-built recreational zeppelin. It’ll be the first such airship to fly over US soil since the tough-act-to-follow Hindenburg. This winter, be the first—and, we hope, not the last—to take a two-hour flight.
