The Auburn pep rally was at the Nokia Plaze at LA Live on Sunday the day before the game. About 5,000 AU fans took over the plaza dressed proudly in Orange and Blue. The Laker Fans did not know what was going on when they arrived for the Laker game that night and found the Plaza barricaded for the pep rally!

I recently went with a group to a 1 1/2 day conference at the Nokia Theater, which is part of L.A. Live. Although it was breathtaking to be surrounded by all the lights and some tall buildings when standing in the main courtyard at night, we found the food choices in the area to be limited. There is one row of nice restaurants along one side of the courtyard, but they were incredibly inadequate to satisfy the needs of thousands of conference-goers when we came looking for dinner and lunch. It simply needs more restaurants and more of a variety of choices. All the restaurants were sit-down and when we came an hour and a half before the first evening of the conference, there was no hope of getting food anywhere in the area before it started. We ended up eating hot dogs for dinner inside the Nokia theater-a huge disappointment.
Another thing I observed is that the Staples Center and Nokia theater are across the street from each other. When they have simultaneous events, the resources available are further stretched, as we experienced one night of the conference when there was a Kings game.
I don't know why anyone would want to come to this area unless they are coming to an event located there.

Kinda like downtown Boston near Quincy Market only on a smaller scale. Lots of restaurants and bars...

It wasn't anything special. If you're going to see something at the Staples Center or going to a convention at the convention center then it would be worth a quick trip but otherwise not worth it. I went there to see the Nike 3 on 3 basketball tournament so I wasn't bored but if that wasn't there it would have been really boring. There is a movie theatre, some restaurants, the Grammy museum and... that's it. Most of the restaurants were chain restaurants that you can find elsewhere. If you lived in the area then it might be an ok spot to go to a movie or go for a dinner with friends but out of towners with no other reason to go here don't bother. BTW, there is some parking options nearby so you can pretty easily avoid the overpriced parking garage they have there which can cost you up to $25/$30.

A high class arena with a high class venue. There are lots of high class restaurants. If you are looking for something cheap, this is not the place.
