  • Denizen’s Brewing Company in Silver Spring opens either at 10 am or noon when the federal government is closed. Just a quick walk from the Silver Spring metro. If I didn’t have to telework, I’d be there 🙂

    Silo is doing all day Happy Hour starting at noon:

  • Prince Of Petworth


    Who got a #snowday? See you for lunch and dinner-we’ll be open.

  • DC Reynolds does their BOGO happy hour all day from 11-9.

  • How do these folks do it, when many of not most of their employees likely live out in the burbs? It can’t be easy maintaining a full staff on a day like today.

    • Actually, I know many restaurants (like Meridian Pint) try to hire staff that live in the nearby neighborhoods/within walking distance.

    • They call in whoever lives closest. Managers can cover, uber, etc.

      Why do you think most of the people live in the burbs? Having worked in 3 restaurants within DC I can attest to the fact that less than a 1/3 of the staff didn’t live on a direct metro or bus line or short walk/drive to the restaurant.

  • I’m housesitting in Old Town this week. Any suggestions for down here?
