They have lots of people dressed up as characters and selling their music demos outside of the Chinese Theater. I wanted to get my picture with the skinny Spiderman and handsome Captain America guy, but Michael didn't have enough tip cash. (He said the performers get really mad if you get pictures with them, but then don't pay them.) Plus, he really wanted his picture with the silly Don King impersonator. He was really friendly.
Before we left for the day, we walked up along the outside mall building. Michael got an Auntie Anne's pretzel and I saw a cart of paintings and wallets with a grungy edit effect. I think they were handmade on canvases in New York. I may splurge and get one of the $29 wallets later.
