    Awesome place to hang out before or after Nats game... There are corn hole/other games, so many good trucks, and live (some nights) music is all a great combination for a sweet time!!!!

    Fun spot to hang out before the Nats game! Beer, food, cornhole, & live music. Also a good spot to meet up with people beforehand since you can't really leave the stadium once you enter it. #NATITUDE

    Usually the smokers are at the picnic tables. Lots of people congregate near the drinks but there is no line just walk to the front. They added ATMs this year which is good when there are food trucks.

    Capitol Bacon festival! September 20th 2014. The maple bacon glazed funnel cake was definitely the best. Ironically enough, held on the same day as Veggie Fest, a block away.

    Get your fill for food and drink here because inside the stadium, the prices are like 2.5 times higher!

    Perfect way to pre-game with friends before heading into Nationals Stadium! The 1st Friday of the summer is Truckaroo!

    I really appreciate that it is mostly food trucks, reclaimed shipping containers and games of bags/cornhole.

    People crowd around where you buy beer, but they're usually not in line.

    Good place to pre-game and also to post-game, and a good idea to stop there to avoid the after game rush !!!

    What is with this audience and 90s cover bands? How did they get so drunk at the game? Why is this beanbag game so popular?
