Parks showrunner Michael Schur assures that the Ben moving to D.C. thing is legit. Further proving this is that the show will be shooting scenes on location in the nation’s capital for the premiere. D.C. is a nice looking city that would be a perfect romantic getaway for nerds like Ben and Leslie. Hopefully Ben has researched the best waffles in Dupont Circle and the U Street Corridor and Georgetown and Chevy Chase and Foggy Bottom… You get the idea; he needs to know all the waffle places. Also, you get that Foggy Bottom is a funny name for a neighborhood.
