Expect Elysian Park to be jammed with pre-game tailgate parties on opening day.
Residents of Echo Park and Solano Canyon have been warned about traffic congestion and street closures. Extra dumpsters have been dropped off in Elysian Park to handle a mountain of trash. Sunset Boulevard bars are stocking up on extra booze. What’s going on? Just the traditional preparations for the Dodger season and home opening game on Monday, which happens to be April Fools’ Day (let the jokes begin). The neighbors will get an idea of what to expect tonight, when the stadium hosts a pre-season game against the Angels.
