The Yards parking lots across First Street are a good option and are not listed on the Nats page 'cause they're operated privately. Go to http://www.networkparking.net/theyardsbaseball/index.shtml for information.

They're cheaper ($15-$25) than comparable Nats lots and they allow some tailgating (but no grilling.)

You get reduced rates (by $5) if you buy 20 or more passes. Best thing is that you don't have to buy for a whole season. That's ideal for ticket groups who have some members who want parking and some who don't.

Hey, I'm new to the site, love the Nats, live in a Montgomery County, and am thinking of coming down for a series this year with a team that has 4 3 aces.  You guys know a place we can tailgate before the games, drink, poop, and have hoagies?  I really like the moves the Nats made this offseason!

Thanks for the tip on the reduced rates, the one problem is that you have to select your 20 games at the time of purchase, but the guy did say that they will allow exchanges for missed games. 

I need to call back and find out if this means that they reserve a spot for me in cases like opening day when the lots fill up early.

I'm looking into buying 50 parking passes for each of the Yankees games and then selling them on ebay, guaranteed $1,500 profit.

Just close your eyes and pretend you are still in the good old days of boarded-up burnt-out desolation with a couple of pawn shops, low-end liquor stores, and upstairs shooting galleries as the only signs of life.  Pretty much how 14th & U was in the 80s, WAY before St Ex and the Bang & Olufson store.

Instead of complaining about the fireworks, they could have timed their weekly nookie with them and made it *all about them.* But no.

we'll know that the Nats park area has gone to hell the minute a frozen yogurt place opens up within walking distance.

They pop up like mushrooms after a rain wherever there are people with yoga mats.

we went from zero to 5 in the manassas gainesville area in the last year or so.  Zinga is pretty good (and cheap).
