avoid parking in the KenCen. You can find parking on the street or go to Spot Hero to reserve a spot in the Watergate parking lot for less than 8 dollars.

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.
