Avoid parking at Kennedy Center, it was $23 for 2 hours. Come early and park on the street
We ate at the roof terrace restaurant for the first time. It was a pleasant experience. However I must add that the art deco feel of the restaurant did not provide the elegant dining experience I would have expected.
You can prepay to reserve a parking space in their garage ahead of time through their website. Totally worth it!
The weather was In door event.. I wore what I was most comfortable in. I advise you do the same. People come to see the performance not you. .
The weather was a bit cool. I wore clothes from work - symphony is pretty casual - wouldn't wear flip flops and tank top but button down and Khakis without a tie was just fine.
Take metro to Foggy Bottom and take advantage of excellent shuttle directly from metro to Kennedy Center departing every 15 minutes.
took the metro, blue line from Springfield to Foggy Bottom, shuttle bus right there at the exit of the Metro took us to Kennedy Center, return trip home went just as smoothl. No question that this was the best way to go. Would do it again.
Bring binoculars if you are seated in the rear of the orchestra.

I love the shuttle, but when the Metro fails - it is very inconvenient. Red line was closed when going to, so we had to cab it.
I wore dressy +. I like getting dressed when going to the Kennedy Cnt. Please avoid torn pants - no matter who the designer is....
I wore casual attire: sweater, etc..
Notti Bianche - It is one of the few options outside the KenCen, it is fine, not great, but meets the need.
Parking in building is convenient but $23. Expensive. Try local public garage or street meter parking.
The weather was Rainy. I wore A dress and pumps .
