You can check out the reopened Griffith Observatory now while the queues are long, the exhibits aren't working very well and you have to pay $8 a person for a bus seat. Or you can wait a few months until the hubbub dies down and the kinks are smoothed out. Reports from the front lines at Blogging.la:
"Our bus was so slow it would've taken us two hours to watch '60 Minutes.'"
"You run the chance of encountering the huge crowd of grumpy and hungry people who've been waiting in line for upwards of 40-freaking-minutes to get the only available food..."
"Many exhibits not finished...Bus line to leave was over 60 minutes."
"This same absurd ballet is re-staged whenever anything opens in this city. Charge people for a lousy experience and then congratulate yourself on a job well done."
