Hotel for Greek Shows

#66965 2 years, 11 months ago
Anyone staying at the Coral Sands for the LA Greek shows? As soon as I read the review I knew this was the hotel for me...

"When you first walk into the Coral Sands, it's almost scary. It looks like either a) some place that an 80's spring break movie was filmed... the one where the poor kids trashed, or b) the scene of a recent homicide."

OH YEAH! Hollywood here I come!!!

so we can all crash at your place? Sounds great thanks!!

No, but seriously, that's not too bad of a neighborhood. If it was south of hollywood, it's pretty bad. You could amost hike it to the Greek - but be prepared for a serious hill to climb... plus it's going to be raining pretty bad.

As I posted on .org.... for those not used to driving in Los Angeles in the rain... it has not seriously rained here since March. That means:
1) LA people are not used to driving in the rain
2) there's a ton of oil slick streets from 10 months of oil from all those cars (we are a car culture, doncha know).
3) there will be a lot of accidents this week. Treat the streets like ice.... plenty of space... go easy.
- the beat up cars tend to have no tread on their tires (no rain, no snow...) and I can't tell you how many times I've had cars behind me fishtailing trying to stop.... so be careful!
4) I don't like driving when it rains. People are nuts... either way too slow and cautious, or way to fast for sanity.

So drive carefully. Traffic will be really really really really bad. Regardless, we'll be like fish out of water.... watch and be amused.

Without love in a dream, it will never come true.
