Baseball weekend in DC

For the last three or four years I have asked for recommendations here for places to visit during our annual baseball trip, and have always gotten great responses.

This year we are doing a weekend in DC. We will have 4-6 guys heading there Friday-Sunday in September with a Phillies/Nationals game Friday night and nothing else planned. We're looking for any must-try casual foods or restaurants as well as any beer-bars or brewpubs that we should check out. Any good places in the city serving steamed crabs? Anything casual that's waterfront would be great as well. Lastly, any places that are popular to pregame around the stadium?

I have read that Dupont Circle area is best to stay for nightlife and that's it's very easy to get around the city with public transportation, we won't be driving anywhere.

Thanks in advance!
