Knock, Knock

Do you like your shrimp with a side of sarcasm? Your yellowfin tuna on a bed of badinage? Savor that sushi while yukking it up with two guys with legit comedy credentials. They’re smart, irreverent, prolific, and trending: Myq Kaplan and Zach Sherwin both know their way around a joke, and they’re bringing their “A” game to The Reel Fish Shop & Grill.

Friday, July 13, 8:30 to 11 p.m., Comedy at The Reel, 401 Grove St.,, $20

Creativity Jam

Art-making, live entertainment, games, face painting, and a Plein Air picnic in the Sculpture Meadow: it’s the 8th Annual Creativity Jam at di Rosa, and the whole family will find something to love. Bring a picnic, or buy one there, and spend a day strolling the di Rosa’s lush, verdant grounds.

Saturday, July 14, 11 a.m., di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art,, free-$10

Bastille Day

Card-carrying Frenchmen mark Bastille Day with gravitas, giving the rest of us permission to just party. Live music on the Grand Lawn, can-can dancers in short skirts, savory nibbles, great wines by the glass…the folks at Chateau St. Jean take their Frenchiness seriously. Join them for a day of international fun, and live la belle vie, if briefly.

Saturday, July 14, 12 to 3 p.m., Chateau St. Jean, 8555 Sonoma Highway, $20

Natural High

Thoreau said it best: it’s not what you look at, it’s what you see. Mindfulness asks for our deepest attention, and rewards us with an abiding calm. Take a guided hike with an experienced guide, who will ground your experience with standing meditation before embarking. Then head to London’s lake (and beyond, if you wish) to soak in all that is lovely and light.

Sunday, July 15, 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Jack London State Historic Park,, $15
