Ok, sometimes I take liberties with tips and their all-encompassing narrow categories. Not trying to be negative, but some things are hard to fit into a confined area.
Take this tree. It grows right beside the hotel. What kind of tree is it? That's what I want to know. And another question- why does no one working at the Crowne Plaza Hotel know what it is? The answer I've gotten on two successive trips has been, "I don't know. We get so many people asking that same question! There is a service that maintains all of the landscaping in the area, so only they would know, I guess. giggle, giggle."
Hello! I may be old and even old-fashioned, but the first time someone asked me that question, I'd be finding out what kind of tree that is so I would know the answer the second time someone asked me that question, but that's just the way I roll...
OK, there are a good number of crowded places in So Cal at night but it's really ridulous that the wait for getting a parking space at the Irvine Spectrum is so long. If you have to come here on a weekend night, especially Saturday, come long before 8 pm to park or else you may have to wait about 20 min to get one (that is , unless you are really lucky!)
