Delay Your Cultural Consumption: The Smithsonian museums, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Zoo aren’t open until 11 a.m. due to the “inclement weather.” Pssh.

Mozart Assault: In the Post, Anne Midgette has an interesting essay about the use of classical music in public spaces to ward off disorderly youth. But why no mention of the practice’s recent deployment in D.C.?

The Melody Remains the Same: The Post, not for the first time, laments the closing of Dupont shop Melody Records. (Also, here’s what I wrote.) This latest eulogy, however, comes with a cameo from Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of The New Republic!

Also: Mike Debonis on revised regulation of D.C. street photography, of all things. Maura Judkis on Elephant Room, a very different sort of magic show with a run at Arena Stage.
