$30.00 to Park at Springsteen
Oh yeah, while still on the subject of the concert last night, I have a question for you:
What do you typically pay for parking at a concert in your area?
Up in Los Angeles there are a few big venues:
LA Sports Arena
The Forum (now owned by a church)
There's not a heck of a lot of parking space for any of these spots so what happens is you have to use private park lots - and guess what? they jack up the prices on nights of big events. We passed by a $40 parking and got a closer one for $30. Still, $30 to park the car! Its maddening.
I made up for the cost of parking by spending $10 on a really cool t-shirt that I bought off a very nice young man that was hiding them under his jacket rather than paying full price ($40) inside the venue. (oh, and Pedro, the dude I bought the shirt from, did not steal his merchandise, this is common practice, to have a ton of shirts made up for the tour and sell them cheap. The only illegal part of it is that he did not have a license to sell retail. But hey, no one's perfect and plus, my shirt is UNIQUE).
