Tons of eating places. We ate at Asia Nine which was around the corner. Very reasonable: appetizer [shared], wine, 2 entrees - including tip $55.00. Excellent food, excellent ambience & cloth covered tables.

Parking is always an adventure downtown. We parked very easily in the adjacent parking garage, but had a little trouble getting into it to leave...beautiful evening, folks on street getting parking tickets... all's well that ends well.

Be fore warned that more than 1/3 or the rear orchestra seats at Ford's Theater are what I call "partially obstructed." Expect to have a column in you're line of site nearly every where. I wasn't happy with my seat at all but there plenty of empties and I changes seats at intermission.
