Daylights Saving Time Creates Black Hole of Revelry for D.C. Partygoers
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!
