Grab a New Yorker Bagel sandwich (everything bagel, toasted, no onions or capers, sub sprouts!) from The Bagel Bakery in Pacific Grove. I love their bagels–it's probably in my top three of bagel places I've been to. Then grab some coffee at Starbucks. I'm not very picky about my coffee and it's right next door, so it's convenient.
Have a tee time anywhere on the Peninsula. Spyglass, Monterey Peninsula Country Club, The Preserve, Spanish Bay... Let's say Pebble Beach for fun. I'm not an early riser, so 11 a.m. is the perfect time for me. It will obviously be a gorgeous, sunny day and a good fast pace of play while still being able to soak in the incredible views from the course.
Editor’s Note: The Preserve Golf Club and Monterey Peninsula Country Club are private clubs.
Head to The Tap Room at Pebble Beach for some post-golf potato skins. Those things are so good—the best potato skins anywhere! And it's a cool place to hang out and soak in all the rich history.*
Editor’s Note: The Tap Room is known for its extensive collection of golf memorabilia featuring famous players’ biggest moments.
Ice cream time! I love Baskin-Robbins on Lighthouse Ave. in Monterey. When I was a kid, I used to go there almost every day with my mom after she was done working. I always got a scoop of Jamoca on a sugar cone and my mom would get a hot fudge sundae with vanilla ice cream. Great way to end the day.
