Parking lot across street is free weekend evenings, but it fills up -- don't arrive last minute.

Persimmon, just around the corner on Wisconsin Avenue, is great -- not cheap, and don't rush it. We ate at 6 for 8 pm show then walked across street for coffee.

Fun event. Long though (nearly 3hrs), but very well organized. I'll definitely be attending again next year.
