Destination DC: Calling All Soccer Warriors
For those who have some spare time on their hands, Destination DC has announced a wonderful discount to bring visitors to the DC area during October 14-18th. Travelers who book a two night “Weekend Warrior” hotel package through Washington.org will receive any-time tickets to see the traveling Terra Cotta Warriors exhibition, tips for tackling DC's powerful lineup of fall and winter events, plus complimentary breakfast for two or valet parking.
So what does the Terra Cotta exhibition have to do with soccer? It doesn’t have anything to do with the sport. However, free breakfast and parking should free up some dinero so you can catch the run up to last qualifying match for the USMT as they national soccer battle against Costa Rica on Oct. 14 at RFK Stadium. On the heels of the match, you can take the subway over to the big screen as four DC venues plays host to "Kicking & Screening," a soccer-inspired international film festival (Oct. 15-18).
As we say in my ‘hood: “Now that’s a come up!”
