Directions to Annual Dinner at 3928 Livingston Street, N.W.

By car from downtown D.C.: North on Connecticut Avenue, N.W. to Livingston Street (about 5 miles from the Mayflower). Left on Livingston Street, N.W. to 3928 (gray house; a block and a half on the left).

By car from the north, including the Beltway: South on Connecticut Avenue. Go around Chevy Chase Circle and continue on Connecticut about four blocks to Livingston Street, N.W. Right on Livingston Street, N.W. to 3928 (gray house; a block and a half on the left).

By Metro and a four-block walk: Red Line to Friendship Heights stop. Take the north exit out of the station (itís the exit with the long escalator, rather than the elevators; if you are riding the train from the Mayflower, itís the exit toward the front of the train). At the top of the long escalator, continue straight ahead through the tunnel to the top of the shorter escalator. This exit is at the corner of Western and Wisconsin Avenues. At the top of the shorter escalator, turn right and walk up Western Avenue (away from Wisconsin). At the first stoplight (where there is construction on both sides of the street) cross the street and continue walking up Western. Turn right onto Livingston Street, which is the first street on your right. Walk down about two and a half blocks to 3928 (gray house on the right). The walk will take about ten minutes; Mike does it every day.
