at the Hamilton. Good food, reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere.
If you are planning to order a 2nd drink/snack during intermission, pre-order them the first time so you can skip the long lines.
We paid for advance parking through Panda Parking website. We just drove in the selected garage around the corner - no discussion on where to park- it was all set up for us.
Ate at Hill country BBQ. Recommend reservations- but inexpensive and fun atmosphere. Lean brisket was excellent. Great staff- a lot of fun and great food!
If you want to eat before the show, we highly recommend Boss Shepherd's across the street. They have a pre- or post-theatre menu, very reasonably priced, and the food is delicious.
Parking is difficult but Metro is fine 40minutes on Red line Shady Grove to Metro Center 4 block walk
The weather was cool . I wore a light sweater.
The weather was Mild temps, dressy grown folks! Be ready for security wands and bag checks.
The weather was 50 degrees. I wore slacks and sweater and a light jacket.
We took the Metro to Federal Triangle. That was very convenient.
I wore Jeans. Kind of wished I'd gotten more dresses up. Oh well - next time!.
I live in Arlington, so I parked at the all-night Ballston Mall Arlington lot for $6.00 and rode the metro to Metro Center. National Theatre is just a few blocks away, so everything was easy. I stopped at the 23-hour Harris Teeters in Arlington for a fresh salad on my way home. Fun night!
Boss Shepards was a perfect spot to eat. Great fried chicken and tasty sides!
Motown the Musical
Book and pay parking ahead at the spot on 13th closest to the National
The weather was warm. I wore a skirt and short sleeves.
District Taco is right around the corner and delicious!
The weather was pleasant. I wore black pants, nice top, heels.
We wen to Boss Shepherds on l3th St after the production. Great meal. A 5 star afternoon that extended to the early evening.
Parking in nearby garages is expensive during the week ($20 ave), more reasonable onthe weekend ($10 ave). Walking from the metro (metro station stop, 13th street exit) is pleasant in good weather.
Ebbit Grille is close by Entrees are not expensive but everything is ala carte so it can add up fast Food is good though Very popular so make a reservation
