Only a hop, skip, and a stumble from Vernon Boulevard is a spot where everything converges (not just the L.I.E., Jackson Avenue, and the Pulaski Bridge). The Creek is a cross between an artist hangout, frat-boy playground, and hipster lounge. Open-mic, theatrical performances and live music acts occur in the makeshift theater upstairs.  Downstairs are brewskis and fluffy couches for the conversationally inclined. When it gets too hot inside, retire to the outdoor patio. Just ignore the enormous pit next door—courtesy of the Long Island Railroad. Check the schedule for DJs and live music, and a full Mexican grill serves lunch and dinner daily.
