I wore Jeans and a casual top.
Ain’t Too Proud
We enjoyed dinner at Otium, next to Broad museum, after the show. 8:30 reservation time was perfect for 6:30 show.
The weather was cool; AC in theater. I wore jeans and long-sleeve T with pullover cardigan for warmth..
If able to walk, Metro Rail Red Line works well. Exit Civic Center and stroll (wheelchair accessible) through Grand Park uphill to Music Center. Music Center is under construction so alternate steps (elevator?) need to be taken up to plaza level.
Eat at Otium. Yummy!
The weather was overcast. I wore a sweater, because the air conditioning in the Ahmanson is always too cold in the mezzanine and balcony, no matter what the weather..
Don't wear perfume or aftershave when you go to the theater or out dining. DO NOT WEAR A SMELL because it smells.
If you arrive early, you can walk to the new Cathedral. The courtyard and interior of the church are gorgeous.
There is a Starbucks in Grand Park across the street from the Music Center.
Ahmanson Theater makes parking easy and efficient, not to mention that it is cheaper to park at the theater than any place around the area. Parking at Ahmanson costs $9.00 paid when you enter into the parking structure whereas everywhere else will cost about $20.00.
We always pack a "gourmet" picnic and snag a table in front of the fountain.
I wore Dress as bold as you want. I saw everything from lovely dresses to jeans. Dressing up is simply more fun. .
The weather was indoors. I wore a dressy outfit. Although not everyone dresses up for the theater it does make it a nicer occasion..
The weather was mild. I wore a black dress, black leather moto, and black rockstud espadrilles..
Parking is abundant and $9 in the garage underneath. Traffic can be horrible. Check what other events are going on downtown and plan accordingly.
The weather was mild.. I wore slacks, a blouse, flat shoes, and a cape for warmth in the theater..
We had brunch at Vespaio, about two blocks south of the Music Center, on Grand.
