This Friday, the 19th my partner and I have plans to go see Death Cab For Cutie at the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park. It has been ages since I have been there, and I want to be able to park there. I recently passed it the other day as we were going to visit the Griffith Observatory, and I noticed that there wasn't a lot of parking.
The Greek Theatre website says that you can park there for $15 but that the parking is stacked. I'm not too sure I'm crazy about that. They say there is another regular parking lot for $20 but that this fills up quick -- and this lot opens two hours before show time. I think this $20 is the best option but should we seriously show up 2 hours before the show? It starts at 7:30 which means we would need to be there by 5:30. I don't mind getting there so early but this seems almost too early to me.
Another option is the dine and ride where you eat from a prix fixe menu at one of the nearby restaurants and they will shuttle you to the concert, but most of these are priced around $50 each - a little too high for our taste during a time where we really have to be budget-conscious.
I am thinking the best bet is to get there two hours early, park in the $20 lot and just wait around. But if anyone has some better suggestions that would be great to hear.
