Excellent. Nini and I can make the 11 am start on Saturday or can join you after our obligations on Sunday. Nothing brings out the soul of a city than walking its streets. What a wonderful way to explore and get invested in LA. Your urban safari is SMACKTACULAR! (btw, the real treasure of LA is Elizabeth Gallardo)

Mike P. Debs Park would be an excellent location for a disc golf course. See their master plan: http://www.debspark.org/
