How To Play
Game: It's not called Comet Ping Pong for nothing. Get there early to put your name on the list for dinner (no reservations), and stake out a place at one of the three spots for table tennis. Allow about an hour to play-the best time you'll have waiting on a table in D.C.
Set: Located in the Forest Hills area, Comet is a mile from the nearest Metro stop (Van Ness-UDC or Tenleytown-AU on the red line). So, plan to drive or take a cab.
Eat: Although you go for the pizza, be sure to try the buffalo wings. Grilled, not fried, and covered in a tangy, red pepper-flaked honey glaze-these wings may not be traditional, but they get a lip-smacking seal of approval.
