We spent the $12.00 to go to the Grammy Museum which is in LA LIVE, opposite the Staples Center. It was worth going and takes about 90min plus to go thru. So we made a full time of our trip to down town.

We chose to eat at LA LIve before the show. It was a Saturday night and we arrived a little before six. There are many good eating places to choose from, a reservation may be wise. At six the eating places filled up with even lines. Arriving before six we were seated immediately.

If you are willing to walk just a few blocks, the parking gets more reasonable. Come early and enjoy the Grammy museum first.

The yard house restaurant in l.a..live has a very inexpensive happy hour for kids and adults. It goes on from 3pm-6pm, and a late happy hour from 10pm-close. GREAT food, and drinks if you go early or stay late after the game!

We parked across the Convention Center for $10.00. The parking attendant showed us a shuttle (a block away) that provided "free" transportation to the Staples Center & back to the parking lot. :)
