Snowy Monday: What's open

By Fritz Hahn

While some major museums (including the Smithsonian) are closed today, some bars and restaurants are seizing on the unscheduled holiday to try and drum up business.

Tonight's Gist concert at the Black Cat was postponed until March 2, so instead, the club is showing a free double feature of "A Mighty Wind" and "Waiting for Guffman" on the backstage. While you watch, enjoy Mrs. T's warming winter cocktails. Doors open at 8:30.

The Argonaut opened at noon to serve lunch. (This is the regular menu, not brunch.) And don't forget: It's Monday, so all bottles of wine are half-price.

Getting tired of sitting home? So are the hosts of the Shadow Room. So tonight, they're throwing "The Cabin Fever Relief Party." (Shadow Room is usually closed Monday through Wednesday.) Doors open at 10 p.m., and unlike the usual weekend scene, there's no cover charge and no dress code in place. Drink specials will be offered until 11; DJs spin until 2 a.m.
