Special Thanksgiving Menus
Andres Bouchee is a Tradewinds favorite and this year they have a TG menu that promises not to disappoint: your choice of free-range turkey, braised spare ribs or local Halibut.
For nontraditional Thanksgiving fare go to the consistently high-ranking Flying Fish Grill. Last but not least is Christopher’s with one of the best California Coastal Cuisine menus in Carmel. Just a tip, we hear the Cornmeal Crusted Chile Relleno with rock shrimp is to die for!
Shopping Black Friday
For a more relaxed shopping experience, many spend Black Friday in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Carmel is usually not as crowded as other shopping destinations. You’ll love the charm and won’t return home as frazzled. Carmel Plaza has a number of fantastic stores including Cole Haan, Louis Vutton, Sur La Table and the famous Cheese Shop. Spending the day with the family in a charming seaside village AND getting your shopping done…priceless!
Best after TG dinner activity
As many families already know, after dinner activities are a great way to bond and, sometimes, to work off calories. Regardless of weather, Point Lobos is a wonderful option. It’s inexpensive ($9 per car) and a late afternoon visit rewards you with breath-taking sunsets. Walking around the state park and laughing at the raucous wildlife can be a good way for the whole family to get some exercise without even thinking about it.
