We ate at the terrace restaurant which is always a treat. There is another self serve restaurant at the terrace level which is quite nice as well. Both are aware that you are trying to get to a show so the service is geared to making sure you get out in time.

The weather was light rain, but mild. I wore a sweater, dress shirt & tie with dress pants and shoes. Saw other people dressed casual and some really dressy. Broad selection.

We had dinner at Kabob Bazaar right across Clarendon metro, parked our car there for free and hop in the metro.

Free shuttle to Metro after performance. Leaves from right side of entrance. Took 20 minutes to get a taxi, so next time we'll go to Metro.

Take the Metro to Foggy Bottom and take the free Kennedy Center Shuttle back and forth. It was really quick service.

The new Campono's bistro across from KC is a great pre-show venue. Not many tables so be prepared to wait, eat outside or share space at the one large table. The gelato is terrific!

The rooftop restaurant at the Kennedy Center has a good salad bar that is inexpensive if you watch the weight of the items you choose...

Kennedy Center parking is astronomical. For half the cost, you can park across the street in the Watergate underground parking lot. It closes at midnight.

Park in the KC garage. It's $22 but so convenient.

The weather was cold but sunny.. I wore dress slacks, blouse and dressy sweater. It's the theater people, not the movies..
