Where You Can Eat Jan. 20, Drink Until Late

Washingtonpost.com's Going Out Gurus today posted their latest list of which restaurants will be open for breakfast and/or lunch on inauguration day. The Gurus' Julia Beizer also chats up some downtown restaurateurs about their plans.

"We're going crazy," said Spike Mendholson of Good Stuff Eatery. Starting at 7 a.m., the restaurant will offer special breakfast sandwiches to early birds. At lunch, it's offering a streamlined version of the menu -- to help the lunch line move faster -- and to-go bags for those on the move.

On the same block, Tune Inn will open at 6:30 a.m. for coffee service. Breakfast service starts at 7 a.m. and the booze starts flowing at 8 a.m.

Penn Quarter Sports Tavern, home of a shockingly good burger, opens at 8 a.m. on Inauguration Day. Chefs are working to develop a limited breakfast menu.

Proof could be a good bet for a more upscale meal. From 10 a.m. until 2:30 a.m., the restaurant offers a $75 buffet brunch that includes unlimited champage. The festivities will be shown on four flat-screens.

See the full list of open restaurants at the Going Out Gurus blog.

Elsewhere, the Gurus' Fritz Hahn runs down the list of bars that have applied for the extended inauguration week hours.
