You can no longer RSVP at Eventbrite, Garden State Registration
DIRECTIONS:Enter the US Capitol Visitors Center using the long, downward sloping walkway across the street from the Supreme Court.
AFTER you enter and clear the security screening, walk through the set of doors and STOP! Do not go through the next set of doors, but immediately make a 180 degree pivot and look up. You will see the words "Congressional Auditoriium." Go through those doors and down the stairs, and you will find the Congressional Meeting Room North to the left of the Atrium space.
PARKING and METRO: There is street parking in the blocks surrounding the Supreme Court. There is also plentiful parking a few rather long blocks away at Union Station. Best bet (under normal circumstances) is to METRO to the Capitol South Metro, blue and orange lines.
