Anything at the Verizon Center (concert, sporting events) is worth going to. There are plenty of shops and places to eat (meals or desserts). Regardless of where you are staying, you can hop on the Metro and get to the Verizon Center easily.

I love going to games and other events here. My friends and I always have so much fun, and it's easily accessible via the metro or even walking from DC. I recommend it!

Awesome acoustics and viewing in this multipurpose facility! Stadium seats were comfortable, ingress and egress was smooth flowing. Would definitely return (we're from New Orleans)! Great show, too! HaHa!

Went to see a WNBA game here - pleasant staff, easily negotiable aisles, excellent access to mass transit, nice shops/attractions/restaurants nearby. My only complaint was, many of the food service operations inside the arena were not staffed for this game.
