Where should I go out to eat after?
The protest concludes near Pennsylvania and Fourth Street NW -- the closest metro stop being Archives-Navy Memorial a few blocks away. If you feel like beating the rush by grabbing a bite to eat first, there are a more than a few options.
Blowing off steam at Penn Social is one way to wind down the day, or get the night started. Located only a short walk away, they have bar games, a well-stocked bar, and happy hour food options. If you think that might get too packed because of proximity, two similar options would be District ChopHouse & Brewery on Seventh Street NW or City Tap House Penn Quarter on Ninth, which offers a wider variety of food options than Penn Social.
If you feel like treating yourself to a more traditional sit-down meal, Seventh Street NW is full of great options. Oyamel by Jose Andres serves delicious and authentic Mexican food and made-on-the-spot guacamole, or head to Rasika for some of the best Indian food in the city.
Right down the block is also stylish, modern The Source by Wolfgang Puck, which is located inside of the Newseum. The Source offers both casual, all-day dining and a fine dining room where they serve up contemporary takes on classic Asian dishes.
