Parking and Location
There is limited street parking available in the area, but it can be sparse and tough to get. A parking garage is available next door, underneath the CVS, LA Fitness and other shops for $8. You maybe be able to get a little discount on that parking by buying something in CVS and getting validated.
We know that's a steep price for parking, but the good news is that the venue is also located on the #2 bus line and just a couple of blocks from the Hollywood/Highland metro stop. If you live near the Metro, it would be a cinch to hop on board to the Hollywood/Highland red line stop. Don't forget that MTA also has lots of park and ride lots all over LA, so even if you don't live near a Metro stop, you could drive to a park and ride lot (many offer free parking), then ride to the meetup.
