Short walk down Hill Street to Cherry Pick Cafe at 208 S Hill before weekday matinee performances. Gracious and friendly service. Tasty avocado BLTs. Moderate pricing.

Picked up the Metro Rail (subway) at Universal/North Hollywood and zipped downtown. Station is just about a block from Ahmanson.

Be prepared to park a fair distance away, if there are lots of events going on at the Music Center and Disney Concert Hall that night. We ended up across the street, underground, and had quite a long walk to get to the theatre. I recommend getting there early and grabbing a drink or eating at the restaurant on the plaza at the Music Center.

If you have a handicapped placard (as I do) you can Valet Park on the Hope street side for the same price as self-parking. This made the trip to the Music Center a lot easier.

You might find parking at the four hour meters. We did and not only saved money but avoided the line getting out of the parking lot.

I wore a print chiffon dress with a sweater, as the theater can get a little cool inside..

Restaurant recommendation: Baco Mercat. We parked on the street and moved our car to the theater. It is a long walk, but a short drive to the theater.

Please ask people not to wear perfume or body spray, etc. to the theater or movies, etc. Many of us are made ill by these, and we would like to be able to enjoy going to performances too!! Did you ever notice that scents make it more difficult to appreciate good food, too?? Just ask a vintner!

There is parking right across from Disney Center, $10, and very easy to get out of afterwards. About a 1/2 block from Ahmanson.

Unless you want to spend quite a bit at the only restaurant nearby, eat before you go.

There's plenty of evening parking on Grand Avenue just east of Cesar Chavez (Sunset Boulevard). Avoid the cost of $9 for parking in the Music Center and the delays of getting in and out. Parking on Grand is about 4 blocks walking distance.

The seating is rather cramped. We moved up out of our row after intermission so we could stretch our legs during the rest of the show.
