The Metro system and D.C. alcohol regulators have very different understandings of all the possibilities that Daylights Saving Time can bring. When the clocks move ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, Metro, which usually shutters around 3 a.m., will stop running.
But bars, restaurants, and nightclubs will be allowed to stay open until 4 a.m (or, well, 3 a.m. if you’re going by adjusted time). This will mark the first time businesses will not have had to register with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and pay a fee to extend their hours, Young & Hungry reported earlier today.
That means if you want to stay out until last call, you will have to take a taxi, Uber, or more economically, walk home. And when you’re not running to catch the Metro, it will be as good a time as any to try a U Street Taco. Burn off the calories on your walk home!
