Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

I am briefly emerging from the JDLand Weather Monitoring Bunker to pass along these items--feel free to talk all things snow (or anything else) in the comments. (The photo is from Feb. 2010, between the two big snow storms, just one of many I took that day. And no, I'm not going to call it #snowmageddon.)
* IL PARCO: A reader reports this morning that a sign is being hoisted on the Park Tavern building at Canal Park for "Il Parco," with a pizza slice-type icon. I haven't heard anything about how close it is to opening, but the sign should be a good, um, sign. (I expect to have a photo as soon as the official JDLand stringer gets moving.)
UPDATE: And now the stringer has come through!
* WEEKEND HOURS: According to Twitter, Scarlet Oak will be open all weekend, while TaKorean will be open today (Friday) from 11 to 2 and then closed Saturday. Osteria Morini is closing tonight at 8 pm, then will be closed Saturday but is expecting to reopen on Sunday. The Big Stick is closing its kitchen at 5 pm tonight until Monday, but expects the bar to operate on normal hours. Justin's will be offering an "extremely limited menu" from tonight at 5 pm through Sunday. Ice Cream Jubilee is closed today and Saturday but expects to be open on Sunday. I will update if other restaurants announce hours.
UPDATES: Bluejacket is "currently open with a limited menu". Due South is open all weekend (see down in the comments for the list of their Snow Daze Drink Specials). Aura Spa is closed for the weekend.
ANOTHER: Nando's is closing all its DC locations at 8 pm tonight, reopening Sunday at noon.
MORE: Everyone will be crushed to hear that the Virginia Avenue Tunnel demolition will be on hold until Monday morning at 5:30 am. Weekend work will be limited to snow removal and "maintenance of traffic controls."
AND: Agua 301 is open tonight, with happy hour drink specials from 3:30 to close. Hugh & Crye is closed until Monday morning.
* BRIDGE PARK DEEP DIVE: WaPo's Jonathan O'Connell takes a long look at the 11th Street Bridge Park and what it might mean for neighborhoods east of the river should it ever be built.
* BILLY JOEL: The Piano Man is going to be "the first artist ever to play Nationals Park three times," with this week's news of a show scheduled for Saturday, July 30.
* RESIDENT SNOW INFO: ANC commissioner Meredith Fascett has this lineup of tidbits about city storm preparations and items residents need to know. And snow.dc.gov is another good resource.
SATURDAY UPDATE: Keep an eye on my Twitter account for retweets of openings and closings. So far, Bluejacket and TaKorean have said they are closed today, while Willie's and Due South are open. I'll keep updating when I can tear my eyes away from my window.
SUNDAY UPDATE:
Bluejacket is open at 1:30, and Morini is open at 2 pm, both with limited menus.
Agua 301 is opening at 3pm.
Due South and Scarlet Oak are open.
Justin's and the Big Stick are open for libations, but the kitchens are closed.
Ice Yards has been moved to Jan. 30.
TaKorean and Ice Cream Jubilee are closed.
The Canal Park Ice Rink is closed, too.

I laughed out loud at Il Parco. Couldn't think of anything better? At the end of the day, all that matters is whether the food's good or not, but still, wow.


JD says: (1/22/16 10:35 AM)
After my having come up with the legendary "Das Bullpen," "Il Parco" sounds like something from my repertoire, but I can't take credit.


JES says: (1/22/16 10:36 AM)
Oh, another tidbit I suppose, Ice Yards moved from Saturday to Sunday. theoretically...


adamdonovan says: (1/22/16 10:54 AM)
The events manager from Il Parco mentioned yesterday in an unrelated email that it will open in the next two weeks.


JHUGrad says: (1/22/16 11:00 AM)
The 11th Street Bridge Washington Post article was interesting. I do, however, think that its bit premature to predict that something as simple as a bridge park would totally transform Anacostia and Congress Heights. The comparison to the High Line in New York is not a good one in my opinion. The High Line goes through an area in lower Manhattan that had the ability to build up around it, and increase the density around it. This bridge park is over water, and will not have the same impact, as it will never be a "dense" area surrounding it. I also think that political scene in DC worries too much about the negative effects of new development. Areas that typically suffer from a lack of amenities, call for new development. However, when movement is made to start new development, there is a backlash saying that new development will push people out. You can't have it both ways!


JES says: (1/22/16 11:17 AM)
Pasted from Popville:

“Due South “Six Dollar Snow Daze”: Due South, is offering food and drink deals, priced at $6 each all day. $6 specials include:
? Hot Texas-Style Beef Chili
? Spiked Apple Cider
? Hot Toddy
? Snow White Russian
? Dark ‘N Stormy
In addition to the $6 Snow Daze Specials, Due South will offer beer bucket specials during the NFL playoff games on Sunday, January 24.

Snow!!!

Lots of good sledding at Garfield Park today.


202_cyclist says: (1/24/16 2:44 PM)
The WC Smith staff did a great job of clearing the sidewalks around the building with CVS and Capital One of snow and ice. Responsive property owners such as them are appreciated in our neighborhood where so many people walk.


JES says: (1/26/16 10:56 AM)
The Nats did a great job plowing too, as did Forest City on most of their blocks and even the Fairgrounds owners plowed a very wide berth for pedestrians. I think we've had it better than a lot of DC neighborhoods as far as sidewalks go...


dude says: (1/26/16 1:32 PM)
I'll throw out a word of thanks to whoever the management company has to plow/clear/shovel the sidewalks and alleys for the Cap Quarter townhomes. at least on our block they did a good job.


Gemini in DC says: (1/26/16 4:02 PM)
And, thanks to the BID "clean & safe" guys for their efforts to clear pathways for pedestrians!
