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.
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.
June's just around the corner, signaling summer's approach, and even though San Francisco may not have gotten the memo judging by this weekend's weather alone, we've been making the best of the extended sunlight hours. Here are some of our favorite outdoor activities easily doable in a single afternoon.
1. Up, up and away! In our opinion, there's no better way of getting a taste of the Bay than from a bird's perspective. Hop on board the Airship Ventures' blimp Zeppelin and cruise from Moffett Field over to the North Bay and back again.
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.
