If You're Bored this Weekend, It's Your Own Fault

There are festivals, fleets, flyovers and fairs galore this weekend.

There's really no need to leave the Peninsula this weekend---between the San Carlos Art & Wine Faire (Sat/Sun) the Chocolate Fest at the Congregational Church of Belmont (Fri/Sat) and Oktoberfest at the Hiller Aviation Museum (Fri.), there are more than enough activities to keep anyone from staying home to sort socks.

But for those who want to spread their wings a bit, Patch offers a rundown of the only-in-the-Bay Area confluence of art, wine, sports, culture, music, food AND Justin Bieber.

According to an article in Thursday's San Jose Mercury News, this weekend will be a perfect storm of high-profile events where literally there is something for everyone.

Let's start with the National League West Champion San Francisco Giants, who will face the red-hot Cincinnati Reds in the National League Division Series Saturday and Sunday at AT&T Park. Let's hope the Giants don't mind playing with the sonic boom overhead of of the Blue Angels in celebration of Fleet Week, and, oh, yes, the America's Cup World Series regatta on the bay. Add to that some Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in Golden Gate Park, Justin Bieber at Oracle Arena, and did we mention the 49ers are in town on Sunday vs. the Buffalo Bills?

Heading down the Peninsula, Stanford will play Arizona, the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon will take place in San Jose, Florence and the Machine will play at Shoreline Amphitheater on Friday, and Madonna will stop in to San Jose for two concerts at HP Pavilion. Did we miss anything?
