Parked at Hollywood & Highland and got food at CPK so parking would be validated.

A fine concert with Gil Shaham as the soloist. To really enjoy the evening, don't drive to the venue. Find one of the shuttle buses in your area and ride it instead. They drop you off right in the front entrance and pick you up just outside. The...continued
