I went to a Saturday matinee and street parking is fine. I would think that evening parking is also good. I know that one block away, on Pacific, there is plenty of parking because the block is industrial other than Globe Restaurant. A terrific restaurant and only one block away.The Habit of Art travel • Aug 18 2014 star this tip starred

The news is out! The Aliens have landed and they want to know how Humankind is all about. But unfortunately, Global Ambassador Harrison Keane has the flu!! He’s bedridden and now must miss the event his entire life had been building up to. INTER-STEL, the agency that’s been assigned the task of greeting the visitors has, in their finite wisdom, decided to send in Keane’s speech punch-up gag writer in his place. So get ready for Rick Overton, Substitute Global Ambassador!
The visitors are only able to breathe our air from anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour (depending on which venue demands what). Rick will come out and see a word projected on the screen behind him, then he’ll have to explain that word from scratch! Many of the words will be sprung on him with no warning and he’ll have to improvise his ass off to keep up his cover as representative to all of Earth. Everything from:
Money: Something my species wants so badly that they will do a job they hate just so they can throw away most of it on things they thought they wanted but find out later they didn’t.
Dog: A four-legged animal we keep and feed so that we can feel like the smartest one in our home.
Television News: Is where we learn that you (aliens) don’t exist.
Television Series: Is where we learn that you DO exist.
Etc.. Lots of free wheeling and insightful fun. If you want to learn about human nature, try explaining it to a non-human.
