Once upon a time in our dusty little town, a drunken rebellion accidentally founded California. Like most happy accidents, this one is celebrated: 172 years now, and counting. Come witness a live reenactment of the Bear Flag Revolt, staged by local thespians and friends. It ain’t Broadway, but it’s grand.
Saturday, June 9, 1 p.m., Grinstead Amphitheater, Sonoma Plaza, free.
For you scribblers, you ponderers, you oracles of thought, there is a clean, well-lighted place beckoning you in. Every month, a loose cooperative of local literati meet to work the kinks out of their drafts. From poetry to prose, rumination to rant, all ideas are welcome and celebrated at second Saturday “Random Acts.”
Saturday, June 9, 5 p.m., “Random Acts” at Readers Books, 130 E. Napa St., $5
He’s been called “The Funniest Stand-up Alive,” which is ironic, given that’s precisely the kind of breathless hyperbole with which Brian Regan butters his comedic bread.

Saturday, June 9, 8 p.m., Uptown Theater, 1350 Third St., Napa, uptowntheatrenapa.com, $50-72
