The Labor Day holiday is celebrated begrudgingly as the last big event of the summer. Though the 3 day weekend lifts our spirits, we can’t help but feel the Fall chill already in the air. With that being said, I suggest you celebrate the last of summer. Enjoy it before it’s gone. Get started now with this list of events in the Bay Area this weekend. Cheers!
Michael Jackson Dance Tribute
Union Square, SF
Today is the late, great Michael Jackson’s birthday. Say what you want, the man was a HUGE talent. If you’re feeling frisky, head to Union Square tonight and dance your socks off in remembrance. It’s free, so this is a GO. Details here.
Giants vs. Brewers
AT&T Park, SF
Giants baseball is in full swing and this weekend’s no exception. Cheer on the orange and black as they (hopefully) defeat the Brewers. Snag a ticket here.
Millbrae Art & Wine Festival
Doesn’t it seem like there’s a wine festival every week? Well, this IS the Bay Area where we looove our wine. The Napa quake shattered so many wine bottles, people were frenzied. Have no fear, a wine festival is here, ALL weekend, for your enjoyment. More here.
Stanford vs. UC Davis
Stanford University, Palo Alto
We all know that Fall is synonymous with football, so if you just can’t wait for NFL’s season openers, get your fix as Stanford battles NorCal competitor UC Davis. Davis is my alma mater’s rival, so I say GO Cardinals! Tickets are here.
KMEL All White Party
Hornblower Cruises, SF
Looking for a Sunday night turn up? If so, KMEL delivers once again, with their All White Party Cruise. Sail the bay and sleep in Monday morning after a night under the stars. I was thisclose to attending. Maybe next time! Buy your ticket here.
Sausalito Art & Wine Festival
Didn’t I just say we loooove our wine here in the Bay? Oh yea, art is pretty popular too. There’s nothing like debating the ability to transcend over chardonnay. Get directions to the festivities here.
Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey
Cow Palace, Daly City
Another option for the Labor Day holiday? The circus! Who doesn’t love a good trapeze show? Well, at least the little ones will have a good time. Ahhhh, the sacrifices parents make. Grab a seat here.
