The markets in the area are just ok. The big chains like Pavilions & Albertson's has a bad seafood selection doesn't carry everything you need. You tend to have to travel up the hill to various other markets like Trader Joe's, Sprouts, and Mother's Market.

There aren't many clubs, but there are a lot of bars in the area and a lot of great restaurants. Also, there are a ton of happy hour specials in the area.
