The parade wasn't as rosy for some business owners this year. With fewer people turning out at the Tournament of Roses Parade - held Monday this year instead of Sunday, New Year's Day - some Pasadena business owners reported a noticeable drop in customers. Coffee shop owner Min Jung is one. Although some venues open at parade time appeared to be doing brisk business, he said sales at his Sabor 2 were off 30%. "This is the slowest I've seen it in three years. I think maybe the economy has something to do with it," he said.

Does this sound like fun? Get up at 4 a.m. New Year's Day, drive in the dark to Pasadena, wait in bumper-to-bumper traffic to park, then push your way through shoulder-to-shoulder crowds to find a seat on the cold, hard sidewalk for the Tournament of Roses Parade. For a lot of people, the answer is no. But they still say yes to the Rose Parade. How? They have found a way around the crowds, the commotion, the cramped quarters. They have found a secret spot for a good view.
