Since 2001, Badfish has energetically replicated the ska-punk sounds of Sublime, regaling fans who were never able to see the band live after the untimely death of primary songwriter and lead singer Bradley Nowell. Badfish culls its accurate renditions from the California punk legends’ three-album catalog, including hits from its major-label debut, Sublime, deep cuts from lo-fi classic Robbin’ the Hood, and several reggae-rich versions of the Baywatch theme song. Openers Scotty Don’t and Just Chill warm up the crowd on Avalon’s standing-room dance floor with dubstep tunes and an incense-smelling contest.
Refined dishes inspired by culinary classics from New England to Louisiana fill the menu at Scott's Seafood. Sustainably fished salmon, raw oysters, and hearty chowder are prominent.

Servers confidently recommend pairings from the restaurant's international wine list, which highlights diverse California wines.

From it's sixth-floor perch, Scott's Seafood overlooks the heart of San Jose and the nearby hills of Silicon Valley. These views are most impressive when viewed from the restaurant's patio, which is filled with stout wooden tables atop earthen tiles. During the colder months, outdoor heaters help keep the space comfortable, as do the flickering flamers of the massive stone fireplace.
The indoor dining area features a more contained ambiance, but still embraces the same elegant, modern aesthetic as the patio. Aqua-blue paintings and verdant potted plants lend a vibrant splash of color amid the space's sleek use of neutral-toned walls, stark white tablecloths, and brushed metal railings.
Rosie McCann's specializes in twists on traditional Irish fare, tweaking classic Celtic dishes and drinks in a traditional pub setting. The menu showcases plates of irish nachos, sliced spuds slathered in jack and cheddar cheeses, olives, fresh salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and jalape?os. The Americanized version of shepherd's pie simmers grass-fed Humboldt beef and vegetables in a rich irish stock before adding a helmet of mashed potatoes au gratin. Heftier appetites can get satisfaction with bangers & mash, a Celtic take on the English classic, that douses irish sausages and garlic mashed potatoes in Guinness gravy. 10 premium imports or 4 microbrews stand ready on tap, and malt mixologists also pour specialty beer drinks such as the Black Velvet, a whistle-whetting blend of Blackthorn hard apple cider and Guinness.
The dining room echoes the colors of the Irish flag, with burnt-red walls and bright-green stained-glass windows. Guests can cozy up in plush booth seats bedecked in plaid and gaze at glass chandeliers that hang from the ceilings as they sip on mimosas or savor lunch and brunch fare.
Originally standing on Éire's shores, O'Flaherty's Irish Pub was shipped in pieces to San Jose, where it was reconstructed to create an authentic atmosphere where guests can savor tasty Irish spirits while enjoying nightly events. Tucked into a booth in the cozy brick pub, patrons can drink traditional Irish libations that warm their insides without having to swallow a parka. The pub's 16 taps fill up mugs to foamy perfection as the hubbub of nightly karaoke, music, or trivia entertains guests lounging amid antique Irish prints and dark-wood shelves teeming with Celtic spirits. During warmer weather, the outdoor patio beckons patrons for open-air revelry beneath the gaze of stars and low-flying Dutchmen jealous of Ireland’s celebratory traditions.
Cuetopia Billiard Cafe offers a haven from 9-to-5 grinds and with frosty beers and friendly games of foosball, darts, and pool. Beef hot dogs and polish sausages steamed in beer and served on freshly made Roma Bakery rolls deliver a taste of Chicago as satellite sports packages stream on a big-screen TV. While guests enjoy more than 40 different brands of beer, the crack of professional-grade balls reverberates across the felt of 25 Brunswick tables.
Agave52’s spirit savants sound council on the intricacies of agave apéritifs while promoting fellowship and education.

Train tongues to judge drinks based on desired attributes, ranking color, aroma, spice, and ability to summon the ghosts of departed cacti. Tastings are a seat-free event, leaving guests free to roam Social Nightclub’s outdoor patio in between rounds of reposado. Salsa to the strains of Latin music on a festively lit dance floor, seek engaging conversation in a private veranda cabanas, or marvel at area artist Gustavo Renoso's collection of mashed-potato sculptures.

Jazz faced its toughest challenge in 1936, when it was stolen by the French, who attempted to use the improvisational music to power a series of submarines. France and the United States sent their five best warriors into an ancient temple to battle for the future of jazz, but all 10 fighters became friends and moved in together. Thereafter, jazz returned to the United States on its own, where it remains popular today.

In 1981, Britannia Arms' owner, an English expat, opened up a portal to the sceptered isle in Cupertino by establishing his British pub. Since then, the family-owned bar has been churning out authentic Anglo-centric eats, such as grilled pork sausages or corned beef and cabbage. To show Michael Collins there aren’t any hard feelings, the pub serves traditional Irish breakfasts on the weekends. The bar pipes in British soccer and rugby games on its collection of high-def TVs while out on the heated outdoor patio, guests stay warm as they impersonate John Cleese with those fun fake English accents that everyone loves.

One look at the menu, and it's clear that schnitzel and sausage run the show at Teske's Germania. Even before deciding on an entree, you can sample a platter of different sausages and wursts as an appetizer?or opt for a small plate of wild boar sausages covered in beer-braised onions. The schnitzel shines as a full dinner entree, however, with venison, pork, and veal varieties served with sides of sp?tzle or German potato salad. Like all dinners at the restaurant and beer garden, they arrive with homemade soup and apple strudel. Likewise, the lunch menu offers schnitzel, cubed pork, and pork roast, in addition to buffalo burger, veal and polish sausages, stuffed cabbage, salmon, salads, and sauteed vegetables.
These and other iconic German plates?including beef gulasch, vegetarian strudel, and smoked pork chops with sauerkraut?have been compiled by the Baumann family to counterbalance an impressive catalogue of beers. Choose from several imported bottles or brews on tap, available in full- and half-liter glasses instead of traditional pints or steins that read "World's Best Customer."
When you think about Asian-inspired food, pizza probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But at Nomikai, such preconceived notions are tossed aside for a menu centered on pies with an Eastern influence loaded with non-traditional ingredients, from teriyaki meatballs and shiitake mushrooms to kimchi, nori, and crispy shallots. Still, they fall in line with the restaurant's mission to serve as a
place where friends can come together and bond around easy-to-share food instead of tying all their shoelaces together. Nomikai's cuisine also pairs well with its extensive drink selection, which includes handcrafted cocktails and a variety of Japanese whiskeys and sake. These elixirs are especially handy on Friday and Saturday nights, when live DJs and musicians fill the chic space.
At this all-ages venue, eight-balls sink into upwards of 165 pockets inside South First Billiards, which houses nearly 30 9-foot pool tables. But they only take up a fraction of South First's 14,000-square-feet: the rest plays host to ping-pong and beer-pong tables, as well as foosball and air hockey. Despite the potpourri of games, South First isn't just a gaming venue. Rotating pieces by local artists adorn the walls, while an eclectic lineup of musicians, from rockers to rappers, grace the stage on live music nights. South First's bartenders complement any activity—whether playing, looking, or listening—with 12 microbrews on tap, as well as fruity and chocolaty handcrafted cocktails.

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.
