In 1960s Doris Day movies, whenever DD would arrive at her destination, a parking space would be available right in front of it so she could drive her convertible right in. No valets necessary.
When I drove into Hollywood to see "Wicked", there was a
"Doris Day parking" space that was open right in front of the Pantages theater. (Examples are sprinkled throughout all movies of the 60s. Jessica Fletcher ("Murder She Wrote") had the same luck.)
If you watch old Doris Day movies, she has the most amazing parking luck and timing. Ms. Day was one of the first ladies to drive solo in movies and she had the uncanny knack of pulling up in front of the bank, butcher, office, etc. and getting the spot right in front of the door.
As such, Doris Day Parking spots are the PERFECT parking spots - mere steps to the door of any establishment. Good mojo for Doris Day Parking is said to to be acquired by singing the Doris Day version of "Que Sera Sera" as you approach the area in which you are seeking a parking spot.
I was short on time when I drove to the bank at lunch, so I sang "Que Sera Sera" the whole way. When I arrived there was Doris Day Parking; the spot was so close, three steps from my car to the door.

As in all Doris Day movies, when you are somewhere impossible to find parking, there is miraculously a spot open right in front of where ever you are.
I went downtown to eat and I got a Doris Day parking place right by the restaurant.
Typically in Doris Day movies, she somehow, miraculously, gets a parking space right in front of the place she needs to go. How convenient! And being an urban dweller, where parking 10 blocks from your house is a gift, getting a spot right out front of the place you are going deserves it's very own name!
Friend: Thanks for coming over. Did you find a spot close by?
Visiting friend: Did I? I found Doris Day Parking -- I'm never leaving!
