Friday the Thirteenth in the center of Hollywood – filled with tourists.  You can buy the appropriate sunglasses just to left of the Chinese Theater.

You can walk around the corner and check out the local high school, and wonder what it must be like to be a student there, where all the famous alumni loom large.  It's kind of scary.
