<<EDIT: 12/20/09 8:00 PM: Thanks to everyone who helped us put this list together yesterday.  Hope you enjoyed the snow and were able to show some love to your local establishments who stayed open!>>

So we’ve made our peace with the fact that we’re not going to be able to make it over to Corduroy for our planned birthday dinner tonight.  Even though Chef Tom Power and his intrepid crew are open for business, we’re taking the mayor’s (and everyone else’s) advice and staying off the roads.

But we’ve still got to get out there and celebrate somewhere, right?  And so do you.

If you’re planning to keep it local and check out one of your neighborhood establishments, you should probably check first and see if they’re open before you bundle up and head out.

We’re here to help.  We’ll be updating this post with a list of restaurants https://capitalspice.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=4170&message=1that are definitely open or closed tonight as we hear of them.  Know of others?  Let us know in the comments section.
