On December 11th, 2011, I left my house just east of Downtown LA at 6am to get parking. Why so early you ask? Occupy Little Tokyo is a take off the Occupy movement. The organizers thought it would be cool if we could line all the public street parking around one square block of Little Tokyo with fixed up cars. Parking is free on Sunday and that area of Downtown L.A. gets pretty busy so going early was a must.
We arrived about 6:15 to find that 98% of the free spots were filled. There were even cars cruising around trying to find a prime spot in front of the Illest Boutique (the organizers of the event).
This was not a car show. It felt more like a cars and coffee or a meet and greet but it was fun non-the-less.
Other shops involved besides the Illest Boutique are:
