Coming down from Baltimore on Saturday for the big rally with a group of 7 - 8 people, including three teenagers, one vegetarian. (Parking at Greenbelt.) Having been to the Mall for big events before (but probably not as entertaining as this will be), I know that there is no point in trying to get on the Metro for the first hour (or two, depending on the turnout) afterwards. Hoping to get some recommendations for a place within walking distance (say, 10 blocks or so) where we can sit together, take our time, and not spend a bunch of $. Was thinking Chinese in Chinatown, but after looking at the boards here, doesn't sound that appetizing. Willing to go north or south (or east or west).
Thanks in advance.
