I wore A jacket and dress pants. It is the Kennedy Center and I did not want to be a slob..
We had salads for lunch at the Kennedy Center Café on the Terrace level. It is a bit pricey there. Eating at home or after the show are probably better options.
I wore jeans. No one dresses for the theater anymore, especially for a matinee..
The best way to get to the Kennedy Center is to take the Metro to the Foggy Bottom Station and then take the shuttle to and from the venue. We took the Blue Line from Springfield, where parking is free on weekends, and got there in plenty of time even with the Saturday track repair issues.
