Where to Snow Day Drink Today (March 5th) in DC

IMG_1359

Although the snow hasn’t even stuck on sidewalks as of 10am (the writing of this post), OPM (and surely other big employers who follow OPM) has closed federal government offices (including mine, except for those unfortunate like my co-worker who has a pre-planned telework day on Thursdays). For your day-drinking convenience, I’ve listed (by neighborhood, with some help from PoPville, Washingtonian’s Best Bites Blog, and Washington City Paper‘s Young & Hungry) spots with snow day (mostly) drinking specials and other bars that already are open with happy hours/worth going to. Places that are merely just open for brunch aren’t listed here (check the other links)
