Going Major League With Limo Service

Posted on September 11, 2014 by

I had been wanting to get the three of us to a ballgame for a while. The year had been moving by fast and me, my dad, and brother had yet to go on our annual trip to Chavez Ravine. When we got the tickets a month out, I knew I wanted to surprise them with a limo. Since working at LCT, I figured it was time to try out a little industry service.

A week before the game I called Mona Marandy of Mona Lisa Limousine in Los Angeles. I let her know I was looking for a modest stretch to chauffeur us to and from the game, and she said no problem we will get that all taken care of for you. (I was worried I was too late to book, following an industry trend toward more last-minute scheduling).

The limo pulled up to the house right on time: a Tiffany-built, eight-passenger, Town Car stretch with full bar and mood lighting. Dad was stoked and said it was one of the few times he could ever remember being in a limo.

The stretch made a huge difference in our perception of time when fighting the traffic in and out of the stadium. As the chauffeur, James, inched us through congestion at the gates, we just relaxed listening to jazz, with air conditioning, beverages, and old Dean Martin videos playing on the TV. The Dodgers won that night, too. Kudos to Hanley Ramirez for his two-run shot in the 8th to put the nail in the coffin against the Diamondbacks.

And thanks to Mona Lisa Limo for the fantastic service and making the night memorable.
