    Got there got a nice spot right on the corner...than some JERK parks in back so close I can't get out. HAHA he left a note with his number on it to call if needed. HAHA he's like me put the phone in the pocket and can't hear it. Called several times but no answer. Went with my friend to his place for a while...darn. He'll drop me back to the car in short while.

    Michelle, Can one take the Blue Line to go to the festival? I have never taken it, I will have to take the expo line to connect to the Blue Line, do you know anything about it?

      Diane, sorry I didn't see your question until now. Take the Blue Line (not the Expo Line) to 103rd St/Watts Tower. It's a short walk from there to the Towers.

      That's too bad Diane. I actually wish I'd saved my energy for today, since I love jazz & blues. Well, there's always next year. Have a good day.

    I was just thinking about this festival yesterday, but didn't know when it happened. I passed the Watts Towers on the Blue Line. So glad there will be a meetup to go there, since I've been wanting to see them.
