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.

There is street parking and parking lots. We got there early and there were spots available.

The weather was OK, rainy then fine. I wore black jeans, black turtle neck under a white pullover shrug. .

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.

But available right next to the theater. After 5 it's much cheaper but expect to pay $23 on a matinee weekday.

The show is only 1hoir and 40 minutes, so if you time it right you could do 2-hour on-street parking.

The weather was Sunny and unseasonably warm. I wore slacks and sneakers and a light jacket.

There is no shortage of places to eat with in easy walking distance. On the weekends you may want reservations.

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.

There are several parking garages and meters within short walking distance to the theater. Most are $10 for the evening (at least on Saturday evenings), but the closest ones are upwards of $12. There's also an $8 valet parking a couple of blocks away.

There is a parking garage right next to Ford's Theatre with an elevator that opens to the lobby.
