Parking Concerns at the Egyptian:
As many of you have noticed, the meters south of Hollywood Boulevard
have gone up to $2/hour and you can only park at a meter for ONE hour (hardly enough time
to take in a movie, dinner or to go clubbing!). The meters are now monitored until
midnight on weekends. In addition, the area lots are often $20 on weekends. If you have an
opinion on this, please voice your concerns to the following organizations:
