If the words "Rodeo" plus "Drive" make you think of Beverly Hills haute couture, clearly you ain't from around these parts. Neither am I, but we can all play pretend today at 6:30 p.m. at Ride for the Brand Ranch Rodeo at Norris-Penrose Event Center (1045 Lower Gold Camp Road, championshipranchrodeo.com). There, "rodeo" is a high-adrenaline display of skill and grit by working ranch teams from across the West, and "drive" is something they did at high noon yesterday to a whole herd of cattle down the middle of Tejon Street. Rodeo tickets run $5-$20 and the cattle drive is free, which is a dern sight cheaper than a Birkin bag. — Claire Swinford
