Success! You're on the list.

With D.C. set to receive several feet of snow in the coming days, you can rest assured that most arts events will be or already have been canceled. Did you want to see The Folger Consort perform with Stile Antico? Sorry, that’s not happening. Eric Brace and Peter Cooper? Also canceled. The opening of Susan Philipsz‘ “Part File Score”? Unfortunately, the entire Smithsonian complex is shutting down through Sunday. Your best bet this weekend is to stay inside and enjoy some art of the digital variety.


Some local restaurants and bars are still eager to welcome customers during a blizzard. Check Young & Hungry to see which spots are offering specials to visitors who brave 40-mph winds and huge snow drifts for a beer and shot combo.
