Summer party 2017

Summer Party in the Heart of Hollywood

This summer our party is in the heart of Hollywood, at the second oldest eatery on Hollywood Blvd. We’re also touring the historic Egyptian Theater located right next door.

Come early to meet with friends and catch up on news. Our back room will be ready by 12:30. If you come earlier look for people with name tags at the bar. We’ll then gather in the back room and spill over into the patio.

Oh, and we’ll have a few prizes to be won, too.

Sorry, reservations are now closed.

Parking & Transport

Car parking:
There are several private parking lots around the area.

Lucky for us, the best-priced lot, $10 for the day, is a very close .2 miles. Enter on Selma Ave, between N Cherokee Ave and Cassil Place (very close to Cherokee). There may be a sign saying Blessed Sacrament preparatory school. (This is the back side of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.)

If you want to spend $15 on parking instead, you can park a tad closer at the Classic parking Inc lot. Enter that lot on either Las Palmas or Cherokee just ½ block south of Hollywood Blvd.

There is also metered parking on Hollywood Blvd but it’s a 2-hour limit. Meters are $2 per hour.

There is also other metered parking nearby.

You may also find free street parking.

 

Train:

The Red Line comes into Hollywood and Highland, a very short walk to our party

NOTE: As of 2014 Transfers between trains and even between buses and trains are free. This was verified in person but you can also read about it here. The TAP card stores your time of first entry, enabling you up to 2 hours to complete your 1-way journey. However, this does not work when you pay a bus fare with cash or a token. Read TAP FAQ here.

 

Bus:

Many buses stop on Hollywood Blvd. 212 (Hollywood via La Brea Ave), 217 (Metro Local), 222 (Sunland), 312, 780

Carpool:
If you’d like to carpool consider posting on our Yahoo discussion group or on our Facebook page.
