We didn't have much time before showtime so grabbed some Falafal at Amsterdam Falafal across the street. YUM!
There are many places on 14th St. to eat prior to the show. We stopped in at El Centro. The magaritas were delicious and served in pint glasses. The food was fresh and tasty.
We had a nice meal and drink just around the corner at Compass Rose restaurant.
The weather was cool. I wore a long sleeve shirt and khakis, but the theater was kept cool enough that a sweater would have been nice. .
The weather was sunny and warm. I wore a dress and leggings. Not terribly fancy, but wanted to get a little dressed up with friends for the evening. .
Ted's Bulletin right down the street was absolutely wonderful. We sat at the bar to avoid the wait time, and our food came out extremely quickly. It was awesome with great service.
and use U ST Cardozo Green line stop and use the elevator to the street
We had dinner a few doors down before the show at Masa 14 and absolutely loved it. Definitely recommend. We made a reservation on Open Table but on a Thursday night there were plenty of free tables.

Definitely consider taking the Metro to the U Street Station on the Yellow and Green Lines. Walk from 13th to 14th Street on U and make a left. The theater is a block and a half down 14th on the left side of the street. Do not come late or they may not be able to seat you.
I got there early and found street parking just a block away. The Metro is just 2 blocks away, but since I was in drag -- well, it was a drag show, Hon' -- I was uncomfortable on the subway by myself. Otherwise, it's clearly the best option.
When I saw it on Saturday, the air conditioning was SO cold that I had a hard time concentrating.
