  • RD Academy
    Like a perfectly broken-in glove or a lucky bat, RD Academy stays with ballplayers for years and years. It also plays an important role in a ballplayer's development. When Santa Clara University head baseball coach Dan O'Brien founded the academy, he didn't design it for just one age group, but instead as a resource that players can turn to from the moment they pick up a ball to the moment they have to pick out a college. The academy's youth camps, for instance, emphasize the game's fundamentals to kids aged 7–13. When the time comes to move up to the next level, the academy organizes high school showcases, where ballplayers can impress college coaches without hurling a fastball through their bedroom window, and then immediately repairing the window.

  • Lyric Theatre
    Celebrating its 40th season, the nonprofit Lyric Theatre regales the public with extravagantly staged productions of classic light operas. Feast ear-buds on sweet sounds performed by a volunteer troupe of opera-trained actor-singers, a full chorus, a 24-piece live orchestra, and one extremely skilled conductor's baton. The Lyric Theatre's The Sorcerer begins the quartet by mixing Victorian comedic stylings with Bollywood-inspired staging. The Gondoliers, Gilbert and Sullivan's lively tale of royal mix-ups, makes a melodic mockery of the British social system. The nautical chuckle-fests H.M.S. Pinafore and season-closer The Pirates of Penzance tickle funny bones of all ages with peppy maritime music and historically accurate knot-tying jargon.

  • California Theatre
    A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater?s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.

  • Event Center at San Jose State University 2012
    Gigantour, the behemoth extravaganza of heavy metal founded by speed rockers Megadeth, returns from a three-year hiatus with an all-new lineup of hard-hitting legends handpicked by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. Mustaine leads his own frothing band of shredders through a bludgeoning set of classics and tracks from TH1RT3EN, Megadeth's latest album and the universal password of satanic bakers. Riding shotgun and fully cocked, Lemmy and the bruisers of Motörhead crack skulls and renovate eardrums with blitzkrieg classics about playing cards, fisticuffs, and the merits of chewing ammunition. Other Megadeth-approved acts include Danish metal fiends Volbeat, who cook up molten tunes fit for a sixth grader’s exceptionally brutal science-fair volcano, and Italian goth metallurgists Lacuna Coil.

  • Da Kine Cafe
    A musician strums a ukulele onstage as hips sway around him in a hula dance. Laughing heartily with his friends at a nearby table, one man pinches seaweed-wrapped squares of sushi rice—authentic Hawaiian musubi—from shared plates as he talks up his latest adventures. At another table, the diners sing along with the ukulele player, eyes twinkling as the melody calls up memories of home. This feeling of camaraderie, the spirit of aloha, is what owner Peter Be and his wife, Rena, wanted to capture when they opened Da Kine Cafe in 2010. When Rena, who was born in the Kalihi Valley on the island of Oahu, craved true Hawaiian eats, her choices were limited to lackluster mainland-style interpretations, such as lau lau wrapped in a tortilla instead of taro leaves. She put together a menu of authentic Hawaiian cuisine, with 10 variations of the hot noodle soup called saimin and 10 types of poke, which the head chef of the mainland's most famous Hawaiian restaurant dubbed the best in town. Classics such as the gravy-soaked beef patty of the loco moco fill the menu, waiting to be washed down with fresh-fruit smoothies and on-tap ales from the islands or local microbreweries. Gluten-free options are also available. The décor reproduces the laid-back Hawaiian feel that Rena and Peter remember, so that even the restaurant’s stage wears a grass skirt. On Ohana Saturdays, visiting musicians take the stage, many of them winners of the Hawaiian islands' most prestigious music accolades, the Na Hoku Hanohano awards. Performers include slack-key-guitar player LT Smooth as well as the singer Mailani, accompanied by esteemed ukulele player Dr. Trey. Starting in the springtime, weekly festivals celebrate Hawaii's music, its dance styles, and its excessive number of festivals.

  • Pure Lounge
    Pure Lounge is a thrumming, glossy piece of Las Vegas sprouted up in the middle of Silicon Valley. The club resides in a former theater building, now transformed into a 10,000-square-foot venue ripe for nights of energetic dancing and ample people watching under the black light that illuminates the lively dance floor. Sprays of neon purple and pink lights ignite the space, while sleekly designed tables line the walls for prime people-viewing. A full stage, complete with a catwalk, draws attention to the retinue of performers and glamorous special guests, and LED projections in the shape of a bat signal to superheroes that it’s time to party. From their luxurious perches in leather VIP booths, partygoers can take in the Asian-influenced decor or order from a menu of Asian fusion tapas served all night. To wash down their bite-size small plates, guests might order bottle service or specialty vodka cocktails made with pineapple, cranberry, and lime juices.
