Open Thread: What’s Open and Happening?

Luis Gomez Photos snowpocalypse Logan Circle Borderstan

Around 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning on the 1400 block of P Street NW: Stoney’s and Halo were open and a few people were out in the snow. The reflection off the snow made it almost seem like daytime. (Luis Gomez Photos)

Good morning, Borderstan. Anyone been out to the commercial strips yet? What’s open… particularly on P, U Connecticut, 14th and 17th Streets NW?

There is a snowball “fight” scheduled for 2 p.m. at Dupont Circle and I have heard there is one at Meridian Hill Park at the same time.

What else is going on?

    @Joel: THANKS. You the man on the scene.

    Steam CafĂ© on 17th open. They’ve made some nice improvements since I was last in there, it’s looking nice, they’re always wonderful folks, great crepes, panini sandwiches, and more, free WiFi.

    Safeway on 17th impressed me today: fully stocked for milk and bread, and well stocked for most other items, except eggs (none). NO lines. Whole Foods was closed. Noted: People don’t cook. Prepackaged foods running a tad low, while items for making your own meal were in greater abundance.

    Trio on 17th open, and a waitress with a fun attitude.

    Annie’s on 17th open; the gas lamps look particularly good against the snow. They make good cosmos.

  7. Kramerbooks is open as usual, and ready for anything! Special drink: The Snowpocalypse: Bailey’s Irish Cream, Godiva Chocolate liqueur & Peppermint Schnapps in hot chocolate.

    Lauriol also seems to be open ALL the time. I’d go there tonight to get out if they were open.

    Just called the P Street CVS and they said they were open with no plans of closing. Quote: “We’re 24 hours.”

  17. Taboo says:

    I am getting a little crazy from being inside. Hoping some of the local coffee houses open. I called Steam Cafe and Java House, but no one answered. This was about 9:30 this morning.

  18. Carlos says:

    Just called the 17th Street Safeway. A nice woman said they are open as long as they can be open, not set closing time.

  19. mattyillini says:

    A friend just confirmed that MidCity Cafe on 14th (between Corcoran and R) IS OPEN.
