Local restaurants and bars are saying goodbye to the super storm with a bevy of special offerings. Behold:
Toki Underground, typically only open in the evening, is dishing up piping hot bowls of ramen starting at 12:30 (and only until supplies lasts, so head there ASAP).
All-day Happy Hour
Bottomless Mimosas and Wi-Fi
RedRocks Pizzeria celebrates the storms at both its locations: Head to the Columbia Heights branch for bottomless mimosas and $5 Dark and Stormies, or the Alexandria eatery for a $10 pizza lunch (including a soft drink), $3 craft beers, and free wi-fi.
Planes may be grounded, but Screwtop Wine Bar has your back with discounted wine flights. Head over to Arlington for $5 off tastings of Argentinian whites and reds.
Typically the Queen Vic is only open in the evenings on weekdays, but you can cure cabin fever with a trip to this H Street pub after noon for soups, salads, sandwiches, and beers.
