Just checked in Custom Hotel LAX. LA Marathon team had it all figured out. Hotel is reasonable both amenities and event special pricing. Near LAX with free shuttle!
Opening night destination is a small milonguita in El Segundo. Bon fire gathering is happening right now, but I will skip that one.
9:00pm-12:00am WARM-UP Milongita – DJ SILVIA – The Studio Art of Dance (113 Main Street, El Segundo, CA)
I met another Marathon dancer here at the hotel. Having dinner at Chef Hannes Restaurant 4 blocks from the milonga. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g32341-d509508-Reviews-Chef_Hannes_Restaurant-El_Segundo_California.html
Look like Uber comes in handy during the event!
