Free tickets to Hopland Passport weekend
But I also just enjoy Hopland, which is what wine country used to be like before it got glitzy. It's off the beaten path, but easily reached from San Francisco or Oakland on a day trip. It's a fun little town with an atmospheric diner, the Bluebird Cafe, that serves burgers made from wild boar, elk, ostrich and other exotica, as well as pretty good pie.
I've got two free tickets, usually $45 each, to the Hopland Passport Weekend, May 5 & 6, from 11 a.m. -- 5 p.m.
The tickets get you free wine tasting AND free food at 16 different wineries. Eight of them are right in downtown Hopland, so you can just stroll -- or roll -- between them. There's a shuttle service, or you can bring a designated driver.
More details about Hopland Passport weekend are here.
To win the tickets, leave me a comment by Sunday, Apr. 15. I'll pick one randomly and let you know the winner in the comments section, so you might want to follow comments to find out if it's you. Good luck!
