    I was planning on doing Silo/TLT for food and drinks before hand - http://www.silosliderbar.com/ - they have good beer but not a great selection. The food is really good. i could definitely do Spring St Bar as well - Always a good tap selection and really good sandwiches.

    As far as walking, you're golden in that part of town. And you might also want to check out Golden Gopher on your walk over or on the way back to the hotel - it's right on 8th st and has a good tap list and also has a bottle store for to-go beers. http://213nightlife.com/goldengopher

    I don't have much in terms of tips for parking overnight around the financial district or the historic core unfortunately. I'm definitely interested in meeting up though! Heather and I will be walking over to that area just after 6pm probably.

    How's the new Ace Hotel looking, guys? Haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

    this is a great place to drink Japanese whiskey.

    It's supposed to be a cool spot with a nice restaurant and outdoor lounge, but already very crowded. Many of us are going to check out the opening of the theater for the Spiritualized show on Friday though.

    I'm taking my daughter to Baco Mercat before the show... good idea or no? We're staying in the LA Hotel, and I was planning on walking everywhere, as I've done that before at night with my husband, but it will be us two ladies this time. Should we cab it back to the hotel or are we still good hoofing it back to Figueroa late at night?

    Baco Mercat is a wonderful, if bit pricey, experience. You should be just fine walking there before your show. A few older homeless dudes tend to congregate around 4th or 5th and Main, but I've never seen them bother anyone and with two of you in the early evening, should be just fine. There's a nice ice cream place--Peddler's Creamery--just down the street from Baco as well. If you're walking from Baco Mercat to the Ace, I'd recommend taking Spring instead of Main. It's just a nicer walk with more to see.

    I used to work near LA Hotel--assume you're referring to the soon to be renamed Hyatt opposite the Westin Bonaventure. Personally, I think you'd be fine walking back to your hotel as well and there will be plenty of people on the streets heading to and from bars and restaurants. When walking back to your hotel, you might want to avoid walking down Broadway at that hour. It's slowly being revitalized, but parts of it can be a bit shady. The immediate area surrounding the LA Hotel will be pretty quiet at a late night hour. Just those two hotels and lots of offices--not a lot of foot traffic in that part of Bunker Hill after the workday.

    Baco Mercat is amazing! And I second that Spring is a much livelier street to walk down.

    Also, if you take walk 7th to Fig, both streets are very busy with bars and stuff, so no problem walk wise.

    I assume that only makes sense if you actually know how to play that game.
