Verizon Center offers a wide variety of classic American dishes. You won't find any low-fat fare here, though, so leave some room to indulge. Round up the whole gang and reserve the private room at Verizon Center — it's the perfect spot for a big party to gather and celebrate.
Leave the fancy duds at home — patrons at the restaurant dress informally. Feed the gang at your next get-together with catering from Verizon Center as well.
Avoid street parking and take advantage of the restaurant's neighboring garage or adjacent lot. If you feel like saving gas, opt for public transportation, with stops conveniently located at Gallery Place Chinatown Metro (Green, Red, Yellow), Archives Metro (Green, Yellow), and Judiciary Square Metro (Red).
The menu at Verizon Center is reasonably priced, with most items costing less than $30.
First opened in 1968, the Electric Factory has been hosting rock shows for almost as long Puerto Rico has been a state. After dancing their faces off to headliners from Erykah Badu to the Dropkick Murphys, concertgoers can stop by The Chive Caf? to recharge with a cheesesteak or an all-beef hotdog on a potato bun, or refill their draft Yuengling at the bar. In summer, the Electric Factory reveals an outdoor location complete with more refreshment booths, vendors, and upgraded food stands.
Established as the Washington Shakespeare Company in 1990, WSC Avant Bard is dedicated to updating classic theater for modern audiences, revitalizing well-worn drama with challenging interpretations. Under the leadership of newly appointed artistic director Tom Prewitt, the theater treats audiences to daring productions of established classics, new works, and little-known Shakespeare fan-fiction about him teaming up to fight crime with Queen Elizabeth I.
To showcase the work of its young scribes, once a year Young Playwrights’ Theater hosts its New Play Festival, providing an opportunity for budding playwrights to see the fruits of their creative labor flourish on stage. Watching their work as it's performed for an appreciative audience may be a student's first taste of artistic accomplishment, substantiating in them a desire to expand their horizons academically and creatively. The students collaborate with professional actors, dramaturges, and directors to produce 15 student-written plays during three nights. In addition to its benefits to the writers as individuals, the festival—which audiences attend free of charge—enhances public regard for young artists and fosters a dialogue regarding matters of vital importance to the community.
This Groupon saws the price of a magic show ticket in slightly more than half—magically, without breaking the skin, harming the vital organs, or causing paper-blood. See Glenn Gary's Parlor Magic, a spectacular evening of "cabaret magic," an intimate, close-up type of abracadabra performed for small crowds with audience participation (shows are limited to 40 guests). Magic is used to delight the young and young at heart with a humorously narrated card trick. Magick is used to keep that blowhard Erasmus Stodgewell from acquiring the Orb of Osiris.
