If someone got a wild hair and wanted to fly in, what is the closest airport? What kind of accomodations are nearby? Is there anything else cool to do around the same area?
reagan national is the closest airport and also puts you within metro access, which i suppose non-dc/va/md residents would call "the subway." there's a few hotels within the vicinity of the denim bar, which aren't too far from the district proper.
depending on the sorts of things you're into, the clarendon area has a decent assortment of nightlife, ranging from irish pubs like "ireland's four courts" to hipster hangouts like galaxy hut and iota, which doubles as a music venue.
in the district there's all sorts of stuff to do on the weekends, there's probably a few dance nights going on (albeit many of them can suck), and usually a house party or three in columbia heights.
and there's a pretty decent selection of late night eateries like ben's chili bowl, the diner, and one of the many "jumbo slice" pizza restaurants and all variations thereof.
