While the MBTA (Davis Square/RedLine) is just two blocks away, there is also limited metered street parking outside the Rockwell. There is a tiny metered lot a couple blocks up on Elm and a larger metered lot on Herbert St. just a couple blocks away.

Davis Square is full of restaurants. We ate at the Burren, right upstairs from the Rockwell. Yummy burgers and chicken nachos, with creamy cheesecake for dessert.

Park a couple of blocks out of Davis Square on Holland or College Ave and enjoy free, easy street parking.

small bar, but great service. No one waited very long to be served. They had some amazing-looking cookies for sale, as well. We went to Redbones after.

The weather was a bit chilly. I wore a skirt and sweater. Keep in mind, there is no coat check..

Plenty of options for dining in Davis Square, and the theatre has a cash bar and allows drinks in the theatre.

It's only an hour show, so if you have to get up to go to the bathroom, be prepared to be called out by the actors!

Lots of fun places right outside the door on Elm Street. However, packed on weekend nights. Eat after the show!

Great whiskey selections at the attached Saloon. Lots of casual restaurants and bars within easy walk (try Redbones BBQ).

And by the way, the Davis Square Theater is NOT the Somerville Theater (cinema)-- just a block away next to the Foundry restaurant.
