On a tight budget? Do as I did and visit the Tacos Arizas taco truck on your way there or home. It's about 2 miles west of the Ahmanson on Logan, just north of Sunset in Echo Park. Delicious carnitas, pastor and asada. Ask for radishes and carrots if you like them as they no longer have them out for customers to grab their own, but they'll give them to you if you ask.

Get there early to not be rushed to get a parking space ... these shows are selling-out, and three shows in one center makes parking a bit tight. Traffic around the center is near-standstill since the major fire near the theater less than 10 days ago.

Try the Artisan House. New to me and VERY tasty menu. Excellent service. I even walked from it (at 6th & Main) to the Ahmanson!

Ate at the Pinot Grill. Food was good, but very small portions and overpriced.

Show was great. The only problem I had was hearing! We sat in the mezzanine and I wasn't able to hear Cicely Tyson at all! During intermission I went downstairs and was able to get earphones which helped me tremendously for the second act!
