Despite reduced public transit and all the white stuff in the streets, the hard-working employees of local businesses have managed to make it to work, meaning many Capitol Hill businesses are open Wednesday.
The food vendors at Eastern Market (225 Seventh St SE) offer fresh produce and edibles, and diner Ted’s Bulletin (505 Eighth St SE) will serve you breakfast whenever you wake. Mr. Henry’s Restaurant (601 Pennsylvania Ave SE) opens at 11:15 a.m. for drinks and eats.
The District Winery (385 Water St SE) will be open regular hours (11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.) all day with half-priced wine tasting and an all-day happy hour! Or sidle up to the bar at Tunnicliff’s Tavern (222 Seventh St SE), the Tune Inn (331 Pennsylvania Ave SE) or the Union Pub (201 Massachusetts Ave NE).
Barred in DC reports that H Street pub and restaurant The Queen Vic (1206 H St NE) will open at 11 a.m., and The Star & Shamrock (1341 H St NE) will be open at 1 p.m. Over at the Wharf, The Brighton (949 Wharf St SW) is opening at 11 a.m. with $5 drinks and $2 off wine until 7 p.m.
If drinks aren’t your cup of tea, browse the books at East City Bookshop (645 Pennsylvania Ave SE) and grab a coffee at Peregrine Espresso (660 Pennsylvania Ave SE). Members can work out at Capitol Hill Strength & Health (315 G St. SE) or for the small set, members should get a reservation in at SkillZone (708 Eighth St SE) —they’re already fully booked til one p.m.!
As the snow accumulates in the late afternoon and evening, be sure to visit the websites or call the local businesses to confirm afternoon and evening hours, as many may modify closure times to ensure employees have a safe trip home.
