If you are looking for inexpensive eats, there is a Burger King and Subway Sandwich within walking distance of the music center. Food on the Plaza is a little pricey.

Parking at the Dorothy Chandler is kind of a nightmare. It is very easy to get confused when trying to find your car if you end up parking on the bottom floor. Make sure to pay special attention on how to get back, we searched with two other groups of people who couldn't find a way to their cars in the same area until we all finally figured it out!

There are open areas for you to eat a picnic if you choose. However, if all the items are not disposable, you will need to take them back to your car. There are also several places to eat in the immediate area of the Music Center

The weather was Perfect!. I wore Definitely dressier than the Nutcracker. I wore a dress with dressy sandals. Lots of men with suits and ties, but some with just a jacket..

Going to the venue, we took a bus from Ventura Blvd and the Redline at Universal. We took Lyft coming home. Lyft pick up is best on the West side of DCP.

We picked up food at "Upstage" and another snack venue, both on the East side of the theater. Next time, we'll pack sandwiches or light fare. There are tables and chairs around both venues.
