I'm also going to post this on the general California board…


My best friend and I are embarking on a west coast adventure soon (only 8 weeks of research left!)...We're flying into Seattle and driving all the way to San Diego.

Our overnight stops are:
San Fran (4 nights)
Monterey/Carmel/Pacific Grove
San Diego (2 nights)

Anyhoo I've been doing research for MONTHS. And I have a few questions.....

Where to go for cocktails? I guess since this is the SF board, I’m mainly looking for suggestions in SF and the Monterey Peninsula. We are both in our late twenties...and my buddie is gay, so I guess I should be a good friend and find out if there are good gay bars I should know about...but also we really enjoy wine and Michael loves a good martini...of course I can't say no to a good beer either!

Also, food wise:
Since we are on a budget we are going to be watching our dollars. I’m trying to choose between the price fix at Chapeau, Le Metro Café and Le Charm. Any thoughts?

For Monterey/Carmel/Pacific Grove, we are going to have a good meal. I’m considering Passion Fish, Bouchee and Fishwife. This is one opportunities to spend some money so I don’t want to waste it!

Anyhoo your thoughts would be greatly appreciated
