Snow-related closings: what's open and what's not

By Fritz Hahn

D.C.'s largest-ever December snowstorm is playing havoc with this Washington weekend, and it's not just the Smithsonian's museums and zoo that are closed Saturday and Sunday. Express Night Out has a big list of the impact at theaters and concert halls, and here are the updates on some other weekend events of note.

Closings and cancelations
Last Train Home's Saturday night concert at Iota has been canceled. Sunday's family-friendly matinee show is still on, but it will be held at 4 instead of 1 p.m.

Mixtape at DC9 is going on; doors now open at 10. If you text SNOW to 202-460-8979, you'll receive a message that allows you to get your first two drinks for half-price.

Rattler at the Rock and Roll Hotel has been postponed, but Garutachi's Twilight-themed dance party upstairs is going on as scheduled. Wear short pants for drink specials all night.

Palace of Wonders will be open, but there will be DJs instead of the promised burlesque show.

Update: The Black Cat is closed tonight.
The Black Cat's Rock-and-Shop flea market has been postponed until Tuesday, and tonight's Right Round event with DJ Lil' E on the backstage has been canceled.

Town is closed.

Wonderland is open, but DJ Nitekrawler's Breaking Glass dance night has been canceled.

Open for business
ChurchKey is open, and bartenders there will tap a special Finnish beer.

Bar Dupont is open, and a friend reports there's "an awesome view" of the snowy circle.

Fatback will go on as scheduled at Liv.

Galaxy Hut will open at 7.

Many Adams Morgan bars are open, including Bedrock Billiards, Bourbon and the Reef.
