There are so many great restaurants in the area, why purchase over priced food at the Kennedy Center. Go for drinks and food at Circa Foggy Bottom. Or get a great burger and shakes at BTS or enjoy food and drinks and ambience at District Commons. All are great options and are across the street from the Foggy Bottom metro stop. Take a moment to enjoy DC.

I drove and found street parking near GW. Be careful of the signs. The 2 hour restriction is through 6:30p...AND you must feed the meter through 9:59p. Use the Pango or ParkingMeter app and be done. The 6.50 I paid was less all of the parking around. Then take the Kennedy Center Shuttle to the venue and back. Done and done.

The evening was really enjoyable. The dancers are skilled and graceful, and the latter two ballets both well choreagraphed and lovely to watch. The first ballet, DMJ, however, was a bore. Our seats were fine, and the evening as a whole a great...continued
