Screw Stacked Parking at the Hollywood Bowl
Unless you like sitting in your car for a half hour, enjoy doing the Austin Powers 100-point turn or subscribe and donate $2000 or more for the Donor Valet, parking at the Hollywood Bowl is lame.
So as you prepare yourself for the June 22nd opening of the Hollywood Bowl (date relevant to the official opening and not lease events), here are some tips:
1. There's always confusion between the Park & Ride and the BowlBus Shuttle (which is basically a park and ride situation). The Park & Ride delivers you to the bowl from all around the city and usually needs to be purchased for $5 weeks in advance to guarantee a spot. The BowlBus Shuttle has four nearby-bowl free lots that offer rides at $3 a head with no reservation required.
2. Of the four BowlBus Shuttle locations, the Hollywood/Highland offers free rides to those with Metro tickets. Additionally, Metro told us that passengers who attend Hewitt/Silva rock concerts at the Bowl this year will receive a free gift just for going Metro. All you have to do is show the Metro ticket at the Global Inheritance booth at the ticket entrance by 9 pm. We have no idea what the gift will be. Maybe it will be a toy bus! Maybe not. Concerts include Morrissey, June 8; John Mayer, June 9 and 10; Roger Waters, June 13;� Rush, July 23; Dave Mathews Band, Oct. 1 and 2 and Genesis, Oct. 12 and 13.
3. Here's our favorite idea: walk. It's really not that far. Trust us. We measured it. It's only .7211 miles from the corner of Hollywood/Highland to the front gates of the Bowl. We know you'll have your picnic basket to carry, but that will build up the appetite.
