You can easily get to La Maison Fran?aise using Metrobus service. The Embassy of France is located on the D6 line.Parking:
Street parking is available on Reservoir Rd and in the surrounding neighborhood and across the street from the Embassy of France at Georgetown University Hospital?s pay lot.
Access to the Embassy of France is restricted for security purposes. You must bring a photo ID. To gain access, you must be on an event's guest list by buying a ticket in advance. There will be no door sales. Additional costs:
No need for cash. Almost every country offers a selection of their national hot/cold dishes. Some dishes are so good that they run out after a couple of hours so it is well worth arriving early. A third of the countries will offer free open bars sampling their national alcoholic beverages (wine, beer and liqueurs - do not miss the potent Latvian Black Balsam if you indulge!)
In the past two years many have come dressed comfortably for dancing to the live music and DJ that is offered throughout the night and a significant percentage have dressed a bit more formally. You can also dress with some native traditional flair if you are European or of European heritage. Lithuanian traditional dress might get you extra portions at the Lithuanian booth!
