Drinks & Nightlife
There is a Salsa Club with a variety of bands playing in downtown redwood city next to the Fox Theatre, and a variety of restaurants and gastro pubs. The ones I know are: Striped Pig (gastropub) Milagro (Mexican) Yokohama (Japanese) But for music variety, you really need to head further to SF, Oakland or San Jose.

Sightseeing
About 30 minutes over 92 you hit the coast. Half Moon Bay has some restaurants but I head about 6 miles north to Moss Beach (Moss Beach Distillery restaurant), or to Miramar Beach Restaurant, or to Pillar Point where there is a brewery and number of restaurants. It is a scenic drive over and up the coast. There is surfing off Pillar Point just north of Half Moon Bay. You can also rent kayaks there. Try Hot Dogma for good local beer. Dog friendly. Barbara's by the beach is good for seafood. Half Moon Bay Brewery opposite. A bit north: Moss Beach Distillery for dinner or drinks on patio during afternoon. For tide pooling try the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.
