EVENT: IZOD/IndyCar RACE TO THE PARTY (Hollywood, CA 14Apr2010)

Sorry for the late notice...I just found out about this a few minutes ago.

ONE DAY ONLY.
FREE event.

I might take my daughter. She likes race cars, but seems to have been NASCAR brainwashed. I prefer F1, so this would be a good compromise.

Other IZOD / IndyCar events:

YMMV.
Good Luck!! 8)

It turned out to be somewhat LAME. Right in front of the Kodak/Chinese/El Capitan theatres & Jimmy Kimmel's studio. Hollywood Blvd. was closed on that block. Very disorganized & chaotic. The hostesses/booth girls were mostly busy admiring each other and sending text messages on their phones. The only interaction we had was from a security staffer that pointed out the "entrance" to the HOT WHEELS display was to our left and NOT where we were trying to enter (NO SIGNAGE or ANYTHING to give you a "clue"); and from the resident Hollywood Blvd "Superman" guy (dressed in full costume for tourist pics) when he handed us some promo flyers for one of the drift-car drivers. The Formula Drift demo & cars were WAAAAAAAAAAY too LOUD and SMOKY in such CLOSE proximity to spectators.

We actually didn't see them "race/demo" because they were soooooo LOUD just during there engine warm-ups that my daughter started getting all freaked-out and we left the area to walk further down along Hollywood Blvd before they actually got going. That was a good thing because if we had stayed there we would have been subjected to a HUMONGOUS amount of TOXIC tire smoke for an extended period of time while they did their show.

Saw Marky-Mark chatting with a girl he seemed to know.

I wanna know which IDIOT suggested the location as a venue for this event. It was only "good/funny" when they did some shots for the [Jimmy Kimmel Show] on TV later in the evening. YMMV, but overall.....FAIL.
