Leafs fan coming in peace!

Very excited to play you guys this series. I'm heading down with a group of friends for the Saturday game, and will be making a weekend out of it as none of us have been to DC. We have a hotel very close to the arena and I'm looking for some good recommendations on friendly bars for us to hang out at pre-game on Saturday, ideally with a patio if the weather is good. Anything in the immediate arena district that people would recommend?

In terms of some of the not so obvious tourist spots, any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

I have been to an NHL playoff game every year since 2011 and am tempted to take MegaBus from NY to DC for Thursday to keep my streak alive. Know they got rid of printed tickets, what's the cheapest way to get a single ticket? Is there a StubHub LMP center near the venue where I could pick up a physical ticket?

How is traffic leaving the game? Should we park away and train it in? Or can you make a pretty quick getaway?

Most of the parking in the area is garages. It will take you a while to get out of the garages and the blocks immediately surrounding them. But after that, it's not particularly any worse than typical downtown traffic. Certainly better than some arenas where everyone is leaving the same lot and going onto the same couple highway ramps.

I would definitely recommend parking at a metro station and taking the train to the game.

I like parking at the day lot at Reagan National and then taking the metro in. Although I am sure there are countless other lots you could park in and then metro into the arena.

Hey all - any bit of advice would be great! My gf and I are traveling down for Game 5 and sightseeing that week (hope they make it even if its a game where the Caps eliminate the Leafs!). We're driving down and are staying by where the National Geographic Museum is. How's the traffic around there? We're probably going to walk to the arena from there but I'm just worried about driving in. Is it usually congested? Is there a certain time when we should drive in?

Thanks!

I'd just try to avoid rush hour driving into the city to minimize traffic. It'll be congested no matter what but shouldn't be too bad if you avoid rush hour. I'd plan on walking and using the Metro as much as possible rather than driving during your stay. Have fun, it's a great city with tons to do!

Where would you guys recommend going for a drink before and after games? And do you have any recommendations to where to watch game 3 downtown next Monday? Flying in for the two first games and will be staying till Tuesday next week.

Is it free to attend Caps practices at Kettler? Just walking straight in?

Thanks

Hei Paddis. I usually go to Clyde's of Gallery Place before and after the game, since it is right next to Verizon. 3 bars, and lots of restaurant seating. Where to watch game 3, I would say it depends on where you are staying.

Kettler is indeed free to walk into, just proceed to the top floor where the 2 ice rinks are located.

Thanks! I'm actually staying in Chinatown so anywhere within a quick walk would be great for a place to watch game 3.

Clyde's maybe for game 3 then

You will likely find a good place nearby for game 3, but if not you can hop onto our Metro or Uber and explore other areas.

If you are interested in the NBA, Washington's team is in the playoffs with a game possibly at Verizon on Sunday. http://www.nba.com/wizards/schedule/

Anybody have the full playoff pricing sheet for the VIP club in the playoffs?

Also, if you buy rows A - D straight off ticketmaster or at the box office, does it automatically come with Etihad Lounge access? Want to make sure that's not just a season ticket holder benefit

So it seems like they renamed the Etihad Lounge the MGM Lounge, is that right? I also see that there are other seating locations that get the same benefit, not just the first 4 rows. So same question, do you need to buy those straight from the team or do the ticketmaster equivalents come with the lounge

Hey guys - couple of Qs. I was looking to get some tickets this season since I work in Chinatown.

What's the best section in the house?

When do single game tickets go on sale?

Any "rules of the road" I should know?

Thanks.
