Nothing sparks love like the taste of a fine wine. In Sonoma County and Napa Valley, there are hundreds of wineries amidst the green rolling hills of vineyards.

There’s always big concerts in the bay area that are lined up with stars. The music history in San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland is steeped in genres from the seminal 1960s of rock to the gritty underground DJ scene. Year-round, crowds gather at open air music concerts at Treasure Island and head to the Golden Gate Park for outdoor music festivals like Outside Lands. The Fillmore, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, The Independent, The Great American Music Hall and The Warfield are just a few of the hotspots that generate the biggest international acts of the day. Catch some great concerts at smaller powerhouses, such Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, or enjoy the DJ concerts in downtown or SoMa. You’ll find great stars offering everything from electronica to hip-hop and mainstream music.
For example, if you’re a Steely Dan fan from the 1970s, you can catch their upcoming performance at the Americas Cup Pavillion in San Francisco. After a ten-year hiatus in the 1980s, founding members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are still romping with their jazz rock. Here their best loved songs like “Reelin’ in the Years” and “Do it Again” all night long. To arrive in style and comfort for this fun event, book a sleek limousine at San Jose Limo Service. This way, you can party all night long and not have to worry about a DUI or getting into a car accident. You’ll have a personal chauffeur for safety for both yourself and your friends. In addition, you’ll be pampered with the luxury of our upscale stretch limousines with stocked and iced bars, plush leather seats, premium surround sound, mood lighting and much more. We’ll get you to the concert on time and home safely. Continue reading
Brides and grooms often worry about getting to the church on time, but what about getting to the airport on time for that special honeymoon destination that the both of you have so carefully planned and saved for? Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the sugary sands and sparkling waters in the Caribbean or heading for the snow-powdered slopes in Denver, you both want to ensure you don’t miss your plane flight. There’s a lot that can go wrong on the way to the airport and at the airport. Lost in marital bliss and the happiness from your special wedding day, you can easily forget about the traffic you may hit on the way to the airport or have difficulty securing a parking spot at the airport.

When your job entails airport travel, it’s crucial that you get to the airport on time. Whether you’re gearing up for a boardroom presentation or trying to cultivate a new client base, showing up is the first step for success. If you miss your flight by leaving home late or have troubles with finding an airport parking space, it’s likely that you’re going to lose that golden business opportunity or possibly your job. Take Rob Lawrence for an example. Rob is a high-rolling salesperson with a leading pharmaceutical company. He lives in the hip bay area and often travels both nationally and internationally to present his company’s newly developed drugs to medical centers, hospitals and potential joint partners. In order to maintain his high-paying salary, Rob must continually develop a new customer base and make sales. Often, he almost missed his flight due to leaving late, incurring traffic or being unable to secure a parking space at the airport. Needless to say, this caused him a lot of unnecessary stress. As you already know, stress is the last thing you need when trying to seal a deal. Continue reading
Traveling to a strange new town or city can be pretty stressful. Whether you’re there for leisure or for business, you can already anticipate the stress from the airport to your hotel or meeting venue. Even vacations turn into a major disaster when you choose the wrong type of transportation. Below are your options.
There are airport transfers available. You can choose to take the train or the bus, and this is the best option if you’re travelling on a budget. However, you should not attempt to ride these mass transportation vehicles if you’re in a hurry to get to your destination. There’s no guarantee that they can take you to your meeting venue, for example, on time.
Also take note that you will be travelling with luggage. Did you bring a small enough luggage for you to carry around while you get up and down the bus? Are you confident that you can travel safely even if you need to sit with strangers? If you have the budget for a more comfortable ride, you should probably look at other transportation options.

So you and the girls are planning to party all night long. Would you take a cab even if you’re going to the swankiest place in San Francisco? Also remember that most of you will be intoxicated by the time you’re ready to go home. Can you trust your cab ride to bring you safely to your doorstep? (You will be in heels and a little dress. A cab ride just sounds too cozy for comfort.)
How about a car rental? That sounds fine, as long as you get a car that’s roomy and new enough for you to ride in comfort. But who is going to drive? The designated driver won’t be able to enjoy the night because she will have to stop herself from drinking any alcoholic drinks. She will also have to drive in her dress, in those heels. Continue reading
Business trips are perilous to your company’s image, especially if the business trip involves closing deals. You can’t mess anything up because it can compromise your relationship with the other party. This is why between car rentals, cab rides, and airport limo services, the airport limo service usually wins the deal. True, you’ll probably spend more money on a chauffeured airport limo service, but it’s a worth investment. Continue reading
Japantown in San Francisco is bustling with exciting activities during the last few days of July. This is because of the J-Pop Summit. You can expect anything—from concerts and movie screenings to car shows and meet and greets.
This summit usually runs for two days and almost every spot of Japantown has something unique to offer. It’s certainly a great place to take your kids or even a bunch of friends to if you’re a J-Pop fan.
The downside here is that there’s usually no parking space. Even if you manage to rent a car and drive there on your own, not all of the highlights of the summit happen in one spot. You might miss some of the highlights because you’re trying to find a new parking spot. Continue reading
Going to a major league sporting event is an amazing event for the whole family or you and a bunch of your friends to attend. The crowds, the lights, the music before the show and during breaks in the game as well as the game itself equal a night out that you will remember forever. But some people avoid going to major league games because finding a parking spot is difficult and the traffic jams are imminent around the stadium. Fortunately, you can avoid these issues and go to a game in a relaxing manner by booking a limousine service to take you and pick you up afterwards.
Hiring a chauffeured limousine service to take you to the game will allow you to relax even if traffic backs up for miles. You can sit in the back of the limo partying with your friends, listening to music or people watching while the driver does all the work. You won’t have to worry about detours or check-points either. Your driver will find the easiest route to get you to the event and will take care of all the logistics while you enjoy the evening. Continue reading
Traveling for business or pleasure can be particularly stressful these days. Long lines to get through security, additional fees for baggage, flight delays or cancellations can all add to airline frustration. Fortunately, you can take a little stress off of yourself by hiring an airport limo service to take you and pick you up from your trip.
Hiring a limo service will ensure that you get to your destination in a timely manner. Drivers know the best airport routes to take and they are aware of traffic and delays and can do their best to avoid jams. Drivers often monitor flight information so if yours is delayed, the driver might be able to provide you this information en route. With an airport limo, you can be dropped right off at the curb, leave your baggage with the sky caps and get to your gate a lot quicker than if you would drive yourself.
Avoid having to look for a parking spot when you hire an airport limo service. Parking lots close to the airport get crowded especially during peak travel times like Thanksgiving. You can spend countless minutes driving around looking for a parking place and then waiting for an airport shuttle to get you to your gate. Or you can plunk down a lot of money for a premium spot but if you are traveling for any length of time, you will rack up high fees. By using a limo service, you can avoid all of the ramifications of parking at an airport. Continue reading
