depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

The weather was mild. I wore casual clothes but dressing up is also strongly encouraged!.

Please remember not to talk during live performances. The only bad part of the night was the woman sitting behind me who "assumed" none of us could hear here when she was commenting throughout the first piece.

Plan on parking blocks away from event. Bring sweater or jacket as the weather changes from one moment to the next.

Took BART. Davies Hall not far. Although it was a cool evening, it seemed a little toasty in the concert hall. Plush velvet seats hold heat. Dress in layers.

Burgers are excellent at Double Decker, 465 Grove St, only 2 blocks away. Classic small burger joint. Excellent ingredients and preparation.

The best and most convenient place to eat before the concert is at Jardiniere. Also, you can stop for a drink afterwards.
