  • 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.

  • Sunnyvale Golf Courses
    Sunnyvale Golf Course spreads 18 holes across 6,255 yards of relatively flat tee-to-green terrain. Towering trees stitch the rough alongside nearly every fairway, and bunkers and ponds add to the difficulty across the par 70 layout. The course showcases a handful of dog-legs, giving golfers a chance to cut the corners off with their driver or test their golf cart's drifting capabilities as they hug the inside of the fairway.

  • Shlomi Katz Martial Arts LLC
    The self-defense system of krav maga is most closely associated with the Israeli Defense Forces, which has taught the efficient and easy-to-learn combat technique to its members since the 1940s. The system is also popular among civilians, who in the Bay Area can learn beginner through professional level defensive moves from instructors led by veteran Master Shlomi Katz, who was head of krav maga training for the counter terror school of the IDF. In addition to learning krav maga, students can opt for training in other martial arts—MMA for adults and karate for kids—as well as intense fitness classes that combine cross-training, MMA conditioning, weight training, TRX resistance, and more.
