Bad news for anyone craving a taco at 3 AM on a Tuesday. Surfside, which opened a 24-7 stand in Dupont last month in addition to a full-service restaurant in Glover Park, has cut its stall’s hours due to the freezing temperatures.

A sign in the window tells patrons that the carryout-only stall will operate Monday through Friday 11 AM to 3 PM, “due to extreme weather conditions.” Around-the-clock service is anticipated to resume when it’s comfortable to roam the streets in the wee hours again. Stay tuned.
