Darlene and I are so glad you are joining us for dinner after 'If/Then' this Sunday at Old Ebbit's Grill
675 15th St NW, Washington, DC 20005
Darlene will be meeting all of you after the show at STARBUCKS at the corner when you make a left coming out of the theatre.
Then the group will walk together to Old Ebbitt's Grill at 15th and Pennsylvania - a short 3 block walk - to the restaurant.
If you made a reservation it is your obligation to the restaurant and to us and the group that you show up.
We are depending on you to keep your commitment.
If we have any NO SHOWS we will lose the opportunity to eat at this restaurant again as a group in the future.
They are doing us a huge favor during their very busy dinner rush so we need EVERYONE who signed up to show up.
It's a great restaurant and the food is fantastic.
So please, don't make us look bad (again) by having empty chairs staring at us during dinner.
Come and have a great time and let's talk about the show and what you thought.
It's a great chance to meet some new friends and to schmooze about the show and the local theatre scene.
Old Ebbitt Grill is an old time favorite and good at handling groups. There's something for everyone on the menu, even vegetarians like myself.
Check out the dinner menu, which may change by then, but you get a good idea of the choices.

GETTING TO THE NATIONAL THEATRE
The National Theatre is located downtown on 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue, facing Pennsylvania Avenue and overlooking Freedom Plaza.
With more than 1,000 spaces within a two block radius, there are ample parking opportunities surrounding The National Theatre. There are several parking decks available for all performances and events.
Parking fees in the downtown area vary widely, from meters and park-it-yourself lots to valet parking at nearby hotels. Handicapped parking is available at each parking location.
The following parking lots are within walking distance of the theater:
1220 E Street, NW – Enter on E Street between 12th and 13th Streets
[masked]th Street, NW
1325 G Street, NW – Enter on G Street between 13th and 14th Streets
1301 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW (Enter on 13th Street between E and F Streets)
Meters in the area near the theater now allow parking for up to two hours. The meters accept credit cards for charges of $1 or more. Coins, including the $1 coin, are accepted. The meter issues a timed ticket to place on your dashboard where it can be conveniently read. While this is convenient for ticket-buying and for our hour-long free programs, the meter would need to be renewed at intermission for most Mainstage performances.
The theater is closest to Metro Center (Blue, Orange, Red) station (can also exit at Federal Triangle).
From Metro Center, take the 13th Street exit (at G Street).
Go down the hill on 13th Street
The theatre is two blocks down 13th Street to E Street, and 1/2 block to the right at 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
(At 13th Street, E Street becomes Pennsylvania Ave.)
