Creek Monkey pairs cozy pub fare bursting with fresh, locally grown flavors alongside a roster of more than 20 craft and specialty beers. Blue cheese, bacon, and smoked cremini mushrooms pile atop the Bleu burger ($13.50), and grilled-fish tacos ($8.75) house sea inhabitants and house-made salsa inside corn-tortilla walls. Prime-rib platters ($14.25) arrive bearing hearty helpings of mashed potatoes and sweet white corn and—like a pair of blue jeans—can be enjoyed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Creek Monkey's fleet of frosty brews enchant palates with fresh watermelon flavors, floral hops, or thick, malty sweetness in a brisk outdoor beer garden, which allows diners to enjoy their meal while photosynthesizing their dessert.

Martinez Gun Club—which was founded in 1883—is a place of tradition. To wit, every Wednesday evening, parents and their kids flock to the club for Family Night. Everyone shoots a few clay pigeons, before they retire to the air-conditioned clubhouse, which features a wooden-beamed ceiling, brick fireplace, and flatscreen televisions. Here, Chef Mindy prepares a meal and bartenders serve drinks to the older crowd. In addition to these dinners, the club regularly hosts special shooting events on weekends.

When not dominating the awards table at local competitions, Dave Tendick enjoys cooking for others and catering events with his signature seasoned meats. Dave and the team at Smokehouse 10 have assembled a menu of heaping servings of St. Louis–style ribs, served wet or dry, as well as Texas-style brisket, Memphis-style pulled pork, and other barbecue favorites. An ambassador for flavor and the art of slow cooking, Dave also nurtures future chefs through extensive, daylong barbecue classes. Students immerse themselves in the science of sauces, rubs, and injections. Chefs at Smokehouse 10 have also mastered more eccentric fare, including cheesy corn casseroles and smoked alligator ribs.

Though both martial arts and visual art are creative in their own right, there are few places where the two converge. At FightKore, staff and instructors blend the training and tenets of MMA, Brazilian jujitsu, muay thai, and karate with a house clothing line inspired by Venice Beach street art. On the open gym floor, experienced coaches lead students in creative conditioning exercises, augmenting traditional workouts with twists such as the addition of medicine balls or dumbbells. They also introduce basic and advanced martial-arts skills on padded jujitsu mats and a dedicated boxing ring.
