Snow Patrick’s Day in DC

The snow gods granted the wish of Irish-wannabes in DC-OPM closed the government today, on St. Patrick’s Day. Our social media overlord have thus deemed this Snow Patrick’s Day (clever), and so I’ve compiled this list of DC spots open during the day for day-drinking, some of which already we’re going to be open for St. Paddy’s Day festivities (Irish bars are highlighted in green).
