The Howard Theatre serves dinner. That's why your ticket says "doors open..." and gives a time that is about 2 hours before the show. Eating there will help to ensure better seating!

We went on a Sunday afternoon. I had not been in that part of DC on the weekend in a long time. There are a lot of places to eat on 14th and U Streets You can find 2 hour parking in the communities in the area. Lots of people were out that evening shopping and eating.
