 ***Metro Tip***

 For out of town visitors using metro. Tenleytown Metro on the redline is the closest one. Make sure to set aside extra time if you take the metro in case there are delays. You don't want to be late because of the metro...it's avoidable. I'd pad it by 30 minutes. DCDC is about a 10 minute walk away.

 ***Parking Tip***

 We are looking at a full house potentially. Here are some tips. If you are coming in a car...be aware of the parking meter situation on Wisconsin. It's NOT free on saturdays. Residential parking is on the side streets that you can use. If you do park at a meter...and you have an iphone or something like it..you can install "Parkmobile" so that you don't have to hunt for quarters. If you can, leave your bags and backpacks in the car. Wherever you park, it will be close..so keeping stuff in your car saves us room and gives you peace of mind.
