The tidal basin is officially closed through September, the WW2 side is being taken over by kickball that sets up very early, and the east side of the Mall is bustling with tourists. We’re a little squeezed for location, so this is going to be a bit of choose your own adventure today and until we find a dependable location.
Option 1: Mall between 4th and 12th. There are four big fields, and if one of those is not packed with tourists, then that’s where we’ll play.
Option 2: Close to WW2 memorial. This is the same location as most Mondays and Wednesdays, just closer to the road (17th). There is generally enough space near the kickball people.
Option 3: North side of the Washington monument. These fields are also not great and on a slight hill. Not ideal, but can work in a pinch.
Keep your eyes here for an update between 5 and 5:30 to confirm the location. But plan on the options above in that order.
