the lady and i made a day trip (~4 hrs each way) to LA for this event, with only a couple hours or so between the out and back. traffic by the time we got there was already becoming a nightmare, all the intersections in the area jammed, and pretty much all of the neighborhood streets you’d use to cut over to the next major street blocked (either by construction or “local traffic only”); we ended up a good 3/4 mile away.

ending with what looked to be a not so pleasant chat with the officer.

I’d call it worth the trip; still need another trip to actually make it inside the museum though.
