Sonoma Grape Camp

The Grape Escape

Harvesting a good time—and fine wine—in Sonoma County

September is California Wine Month, so celebrate with a trip north for Sonoma County Grape Camp (September 23–25). Activities at the three-day camp include harvesting grapes, wine tasting, touring wineries, and attending seminars. Campers stay at the four-diamond Vintners Inn, and dine at a different winery or restaurant for every meal. On the third day, the camp host, the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission, honors your newfound wine knowledge with a graduation reception and dinner at Balletto Vineyards in the Russian River Valley. sonomagrapecamp.com —Emily Burns

Hangover Therapy in Vegas

Opened in August, REVIV in the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino is a spa that rehydrates guests with IV infusions of vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-nausea meds (the HydraMax treatment provides an entire liter of saline and electrolytes). Sketched out? Fear not—four ER docs developed the operation and they’ve staffed the place with RNs and paramedics. The vibe of the place is spa-like; guests get an iPad and a massage chair during treatments. REVIV is open daily from 9 a.m. to midnight, but you can’t be treated if you’re tipsy. Note: it’s not just for people who’ve been on a bender. Tourists hiking in the desert or dehydrating while tanning at the pool will also benefit from the IV treatments, which start at $99 (oral vitamins, $49; oxygen bar, $1 per minute). 3799 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, revivme.com
