I miss you, Monterey
I visited the cozy sleepy town of Monterey, CA last weekend to attend a friend's graduation ceremony. I'm into quaint and cool places so I definitely have to share this find.
If you ever visit historic Old Town Monterey, I suggest checking out "The Crown & Anchor". It reminded me of this British pub I went to in Spain (yeah, I know why not England huh?). With a lively atmosphere, you might think you're in merry old England. My friends and I sat outside at the heated patio area where we enjoyed food and drink. I ordered the fish and chips (of course) while others munched on cheeseburgers and chicken fingers. I'm not a fan but they told me the chicken pie and cottage pie is good. For drink, they offer a nice selection of draft beer, microbrew, and local California wines (from nearby Napa and Carmel wineries). This place is a local favorite for MIIS (Monterey Institute of International Studies) students so watch out for those silly grad students blowing off steam.
We lucked out that night and caught some entertainment from our table. Here's a pic of Scottish bagpipers:
