We went to a matinee and bought lunch on the Plaza. Not inexpensive, but tasty and convenient.

Traffic on 101 getting there was HORRIBLE, it took us 2 1/2 hours bumper to bumper the whole way. Made mistake of merging on to 110 and got off at 4th. Next time we will stay on 101 and get off at Temple.

After 40 years, the theater allows drinks in the auditorium and people sneak in snacs either from outside or from the concessions. This is an exteremely base idea as cracking noises from food unwrapping are constant and annoying. If someone does this, tell them to stop or shut up! And phones off!

The weather was cold for California. I wore Matinees, everyone was dressed nicely--nothing too casual or sloppy..

I wore flats. There's always so much walking to the Music Center venues from just parking structure alone. I highly recommend wearing either flats or kitty heels..

Ate at the outdoor restaurant between the Ahmanson and the Music Center. Would recommend the portabella mushroom burger highly...it was delicious! Didn't even miss the meat! Definitely try it!

The weather was warm. I wore a dress. Please, people, even if it's been a hot day, shorts and a t-shirt are not appropriate. .

There are several places to eat at the Music Center. The Spotlight Café is a carry out with sandwiches, soup and salads. There are also two sit-down restaurants with good food.

If you park in the Music Center parking it is $9 for the whole night and it leads you right up to the theater. Lot's of room and easy access from the street.

The new Grand Park has Music Center security guards patrolling all the levels of the park. You can park anywhere around the park and walk up to the Music Center in safety. It was a nice thing to do on a pleasant evening.

Allow extra time to pick-up will call tickets as the lines at the Ahmanson Theater are long and slow.

Botega Louies on 7th and Grand. Varied menu. Very good food. Bar area tables too small for plate sizes served. Attentive waiter Nate.
