Green Turtle is next door; Clyde's is around the corner. Just go early because it's crowded. There's also a pizza place called Fuel across the street. Good garlic knots. Of course, you could eat inside.

Ate dinner at Carmines which is about 2 blocks from Verizon Center. Italian, family style dining. Portions are huge. A salad or appitizer and one dish is plenty for 3-4 people. Don't go if only 1 or 2 people unless you want to take home half your meal.

Wizards fans were largely apathetic to their performance.

More Information



The Washington Wizards kick off the new NBA season with a game against the New Jersey Nets.  The Wizards overcame injuries to star guard Gilbert Arenas to make last year’s playoffs.  “Agent Zero” is back at full strength this year, and he, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, and the rest of the Wizards are primed to build on last year’s success.
