  1. Sorry to say it's pretty much a snuggly snore in wine-country that day. Everything's closed. Well, almost everything. A few resorts, restos, and movie theatres are open. Good luck.

    1. Yep - movie theaters are about it... bring a Scrabble board. Where are you staying? You might want to schedule yourself for some blow-out banquet at one of the resorts. No wineries open that I can think of.

      1. Looks like pickings are slim.
        Lunch reservations are currently showing up online:
        Auberge du Soleil
        Carneros at the the Lodge at Sonoma
        Sante at the Sonoma Mission Inn
        Solbar at Solage Calistoga (that would be my pick)

          1. 2 years ago I had dinner on Christmas at Saddles in Sonoma. It's a good steak house in a nice location attached to a resort-like hotel. We had a wonderful time there.
