Weekender: Three Ways to Get Out and Play

Tyler Lamon | August 17, 2012 | Story Weekend Escapes

Friday night jazz in Marin

Grab a martini and catch Keiko Matsui's signature brand of contemporary jazz at George's Nightclub in San Rafael this Friday, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Matsui blends Eastern and Western sounds with eclectic influences like Mozart and Stevie Wonder for a truly unique style.

Saturday hike in Santa Clara

Escape the concrete jungle for a scenic hike through the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains, at the Rancho CaƱada del Oro open space preserve. With over eight miles of trail, 360 degree views, and wildlife (plus a forecast of 79 degrees), it’s the perfect way to hit the “refresh” button.

Sunday wine tasting in SF

Forget sitting in Highway 29 traffic for a few swishes of wine--this Sunday San Francisco Winery is hosting a wine crawl right here. A free shuttle will serve as your DD to more than ten urban wineries, and winemakers will be on site to teach you about what you’re tasting. Cheers!
