Thanks to reader S. for pointing me to this post last week from the Post's Going Out Gurus with news of the "KegBus", which on Fridays and Saturdays is running shuttles to Nationals Park from four Capitol Hill bars -- the Pour House and the Hawk and Dove on Pennsylvania Avenue and Finn Mac Cool's and the Ugly Mug on Eighth Street -- dropping bar patrons off at Second and L, SE (about three blocks from the ballpark). It's sponsored by Miller Lite, and to get on board you need to buy a beer at one of the bars and get a special wristband. There's two runs to the stadium before the game, and two or three after. No drinking on the bus, though! Read the post for more info, or visit one of the bars and demand that they tell you all about it.

More posts: Nationals Park
 

* NBC4 sets the vibe with "Traffic Nightmare Expected in DC Area This Evening", a short piece on the Wizards-United-Nats trifecta. They list the area around RFK as the possible flash point, though all of yesterday's Impending Doom stories pointed toward Metro and Gallery Place. Remember, if you're using the Nats Express, you have to park at RFK's Lot 7 tonight, not Lot 8. Dr. Gridlock has more on getting through the evening.
* WJLA gets into the mix with "Parking Woes Surround New Stadium," retelling a story they had on Tuesday about legally parked cars getting towed during Monday's ballgame. There's also a quote from a school bus driver lamenting not being able to park free on the street anymore, which I'm guessing won't be garnering much sympathy from the pro-Canal Park folks who want the buses out. And there's dueling quotes from Barracks Row shopowners, one who doesn't think it's fair and another who likes the turnover of spaces. There will be a public meeting next month to get first feedback on the new parking restrictions.
* For something a bit more uplifting, try Catholic News Service's "Turning a Stadium into a Cathedral for Pope's Mass in DC."
And, an observation:
* Conventional Wisdom leading up to Opening Day: "OMG! The stadium is going to be a disaster because there's going to be such huge traffic, transit and parking nightmares!"
* Conventional Wisdom after Monday's game: "OMG! The stadium is going to be a disaster because no one's going to go!" (Never mind that it was NCAA finals night/cold as hell/the Marlins/a school night/a game not in season ticket partial plans.)
Stan says the Nats will get the attendance they deserve. Ask the Capitals about that, when you're mulling whether to fork over a couple thousand dollars for a ticket to one of their playoff games.
