It's Going to be One of Those "Conventions"

The attendees are encouraged to take public transportation, of course. To see an auto show. Sort of like asking the public to drive to a subway (sorry, Metro) car show.
The dates and hours are, from Theresa DuBois' email:
Wednesday, February 4 & Thursday, February 5: 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Friday, February 6 & Saturday, February 7: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm
Sunday, February 8: 10:00 am – 7:00 pm
The trouble with the local shows is that the people driving in to them often know the neighborhoods well enough to park in them, legally or not. The half-life of an empty parking place during such events is approximately that of a mu-meson. Short.
The more conventional
So plan your next weekend around not seeing your normal parking places until Monday morning. Think of it as a snow storm. And pray for serious traffic enforcement. DC can really make money on these weekends, if they want to.
