Santa Barbara Bowl

Thank you for the info but how long of a walk is Los Agaves from the bowl? That might be the ticket.Do they have good magaritas?

Santa Barbara Bowl

Thanks for the reply.I have never been to the bowl but I am really looking forward to it.Do you think I should park at the bowl and then walk to the restaurants?How long of a walk is it?If I do not walk it is probly a bitch to find a spot right before the show.so parking first might be the answer.Would Los Agaves be a good pick?Which are the best out of your other picks.Thanks again for your help!
