Pete's will be riding the storm out.

For those who didn't stock the pantry in preparation for the Armageddon — sorry, snowmageddon — you might consider braving the elements and heading to a nearby restaurant. A number are doggedly riding out the storm this weekend.

Here's our working list. Please add to it as you learn of others:

  • Pete's Apizza The owners are housing employees at a nearby B&B so that the Columbia Heights pizzeria can serve all your pie needs. "All they have to do is walk to work" tomorrow, says co-owner Mike Wilkinson
  • Dino Owner/chef Dean Gold e-mailed today to say, "We expect to be open tomorrow."

  • Jackson 20 The Alexandria restaurant, in fact, will be giving away a free dinner entree on Saturday for "the best snow sculpture in the courtyard." Judging at 5 p.m.
  • Urbana The Dupont Circle restaurant is hosting a "Baby It's Cold Outside Beach Party." Anyone who arrives in beach wear (presumably under a heavy coat) can sip on $5 summer cocktails, including sea breezes, Bahama mamas, bay breezes, rum runners, and margaritas.
  • Poste Moderne Brasserie The Penn Quarter restaurant is offering two hot drinks at half price. The drinks: "Who’s Your Toddy?" and the classic hot buttered rum.
  • Grapeseed The American bistro in Bethesda is offering its Restaurant Week menu tonight and tomorrow. Chef/owner Jeff Heineman swears he's spending the night at the restaurant, so he can "shovel first thing."
  • Chinatown Coffee Co. The shop in, duh, Chinatown will be giving away "snowcakes" to anyone buying a coffee drink. What is a snowcake? Co-owner Max Brown says they're "pancakes with real maple syrup and powdered sugar and a touch of espresso."
  • Minibar at Cafe Atlantico Nothing will stop Jose Andres from foaming!
  • Againn Though the downtown pub suggests you call before arriving. Sounds like a hedge to us.
  • H Street NE bars They're offering a special promotion that makes you actually root for more snow.
  • D.C. steakhouses Erik Wemple over on City Desk has a run-down of your favorite beef suppliers.

    Industry workers are cheap. Our wages are only a few dollars per hour. Owners stand to lose a lot of money if they decide to close on a Fri/Sat. So bars/restaurants will be kept open no matter how difficult it is for workers to show up or how dead the night might be.

    So while you're out please keep the hard workers in mind.

    Cheers.

    Snover--that is a great point. I have several friends who work in bars and restaurants around town and they've had to drag themselves in to work. So--folks out there--TIP GENEROUSLY!
