We parked in underground parking at hotel next door for $13 instead of more than $20. From downtown office, Metro and free shuttle from Foggy Bottom is easy.

The weather was nice.. I wore business casual as did my friend. We wandered outside on the patio during the intermission; views of river incredible as always. If temps are to be low, bring a sweater or jacket so as not to miss this..
