Something for the Weekend: Bars open on Christmas Day
On Christmas Day, the majority of bars and restaurants are closed to allow employees to spend time with their families. But if you don't celebrate Christmas, or if you're in town for the holiday, it can seem a bit unfair. But all is not lost: Some bars are open for business this weekend, though not all on their usual schedules. If your favorite neighborhood spot isn't listed here, make sure you call before heading out.
