Venue Information for
Ballroom Blum
Driving Directions: Near the Archives II facility in Adelphi, Maryland. Accessible via public transportation (except Sundays) via the C8 bus line, about a 10-minute ride plus a four block walk from the College Park Metro station on the Green and Yellow Lines. The bus also services both White Flint and Glenmont on the Red Line, so that a trip through downtown DC might not be necessary if you're coming from upper Montgomery County. The bus does not run on Sundays, and you'll probably want to ask for a ride back to the Metro after an evening event.
