Eating Around Blizzard 2010 Edition

I just ventured outside and was quite surprised by how much is actually open today. Very few cars, lots and lots of people, and almost every bar is open.

Here is the rundown:

Our go-to neighborhood bar is open. While their food has gone downhill as of late, this month's featured micro beer is Abita Turbo Dog which sounds pretty good on a day like this.

Despite massive snow drifts, both the Starbucks in Courthouse and Clarendon are open.

And this should not surprise anyone, but Ray's is open. And no, we are not headed there tonight, but if you have a hankering for a steak, I am guessing you can get a reservation.

And this one surprised me: Boccato Gelato, a fabulous Argentinaian-influenced gelateria was open and full of people swilling down hot beverages. This month they are paying homage to my childhood and showcasing Thin Mint and Samoa flavored gelati; we got a scoop of each in a pint to-go for dessert this evening.

Whole Foods was most certainly not open, so if you need groceries, the only option is Walgreens or CVS. No organic produce today!

Hopefully everyone stocked up before the snow. If not, plenty of beer awaits if you are brave enough to venture out (read: walk, driving is all but impossible). Stay warm.
