I've been in Monterey for conferences before; it's a pretty small, touristy
town. There's a good strip of restaurants, shops, cinemas etc sort of
adjacent to the convention centre, and if you walk on the paths parallel to
the ocean, there's a developed area with restaurants, an aquarium, etc.

While we were there, the best thing was an open-air market on Wednesday (I
think?) nights; good food, friendly people. Look for it. There's also a
really good book store/coffee shop on the square.

Up the coast is Big Sur, which is beautiful - IMHO much better than the
Great Ocean Road (but I'm an american ;-)

As far as bars go, I don't remember anything remarkable- just your normal,
crap hotel bars and a few unremarkable local places. Good mexican food is
easy to find, though, and you're encouraged to drink there...

Have fun,
