Heading to a show at the Birchmere on Saturday and while I used to live in Arlington and love it, I'm a bit stale on choices. Our usuals are Thai Square, B-54, Nam Viet. We could try to get into Ray's, but didn't know what other Hounds might recommend. Tallulahs? Is it really worth it? Something I might not know about at all?
Secondly, I know better seats are available at Birchmere if you eat there first, and I know the food isn't worth going for, but can someone confirm that we shouldn't go that route?
