Get the scoop on what's happening each weekday in Long Beach.

Rise and shine, Long Beach! Here are five things you should know about what’s going on in the city before starting your Tuesday:

1. Today is Flag Day. According to the National Flag Day Foundation, this day commemorates the adoption of the stars and stripes as the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. Coming up on Patch, a story about a Long Beach man born on Flag Day who posts American flags on the boardwalk and throughout the city.

2. Steve Adelson on Chapman Stick joins with Nydia "Liberty" Mata at Grillfire on West Park Avenue from 8 to 11 p.m. No cover. Food and drink.

4. So you didn't get chance to log on to Long Beach Patch yesterday? Here's what you missed: We posted a story about the origins and early history of the boardwalk, a list of local job openings and a column on shopping for summer clothes in town.

On a June 14th, I pledged the following: Fidem mean obligo vexillo Civatatum Unitarum Americae et rei publicae proqua stat, uni natione sub Deo non dividendae cum libertate justititiaqui omnibus. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. and thus became a United States citizen, but since I'm also "Latino" I thought I share the pledge in latin. E pluribus unum. Happy Flag Day!!
