I hate First Fridays downtown. BTW First Fridays for those who don't know is held every first Friday of the month. 1) the parking lots downtown gets filled to capacity 2) access to the FSE gets restricted (ie, Metro cops and security personnel positioned at entry points) 3) traffic once took almost 1 hour driving from Downtown Grand to Plaza. I should have walked but once stuck in that traffic it was a journey to no where. 4) not sure how much the admission charge to get in but one time I turned around and declined to enter. I'm curious to hear others responses about First Fridays.
