For lunch before a Saturday matinee, Campono just across the street offers cafeteria style subs, pizza, etc. Nothing fancy, but good food and good prices - the show is the splurge.

For anyone who has not been to the Kennedy Center, be forewarned that the food and drink prices are outrageous. They're up to $17.50 now for a glass of mediocre sparkling wine.

Parking at the Kennedy Center is disrupted by new construction. The former entry is closed, and the former exits now provide the only entrances as well.

If going at night, park in the Watergate for half the price of the Kennedy Center. Or take the Metro to Foggy Bottom and get the free red bus to the Kennedy Center just at the top of the stairs of the Metro.

Kennedy Center does not assign seates. You'll get them at the box office when you arrive.

Parking at Kennedy Center is $23.00 per vehicle. Expensive. Remember where you parked. It took us 15 minutes to find our car. Note floor, section, row number.

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..
