At the concert on the 18th, or the inauguration itself?

I heard 3 mil for the inauguration, but 500k for Sunday.

They weren't too specific, but I'm guessing they were speaking of the inauguration

Already was going to be there for inauguration/visiting college friends. This is just bonus. A very, very nice bonus.

About footwear - no, you don't need boots for a tiny bit of snow, but your feet will be very, very cold without warm footwear, and cold feet make for a miserable time. I recommend wool socks and warm boots just for that.

On one of the maps, there looked to be several jumbotrons set up.

I'm taking the blue line out to the event, so I guess either Smithsonian or Farragut West station is where I'll exit (as early as possible )

If you jump up and down enough times your feel will not get warm. Trust me, I've tried it.

rock 'n' roll stops the traffic mate... even if all the rock 'n' rollers are in their mid life crisis period.
