Sure everyone knows that Mapquest blows and can’t be trusted, but The Holiness of Google Maps?
Last night it all came to a screeching halt.
My carful of companions and I were eager to see Ricky Jay and His 52 Assistants at the Geffen Playhouse in or about the UCLA campus.
(by the way the show is awesome)
Knowing the treachery of the UCLA campus, I not only Google Mapped the address of the theater, but also of three parking structures nearby. We left plenty of time but when we reached what Google claimed was the address, we had no choice but to notice we were in a lovely residential neighborhood, not, in fact, at the Geffen Playhouse.
Fury ensued, and finally I allowed myself the awful truth: GOOGLE WAS WRONG.
I have NEVER seen this before. And I don’t want to see it again.
Is there something more reliable out there? I really hate to get lost – if I wanted to wing it I wouldn’t have bothered Googling!
