Hurricane Sandy closings and cancellations in the D.C. area

[This post has been updated]

This just about sums up where we’re at. With no Metro or Metrobus service, no federal government and schools everywhere closed at least through Monday, it’s wise to assume that whatever your after-work plans were for tomorrow, they’re likely canceled.

We’ll stay on top of any major closings, but for the most part, assume it’s closed and call ahead before you attempt to go anywhere. (Better yet, don’t attempt to go anywhere and stay somewhere safe until the storm passes.)

10:25 p.m. Sunday

• Strathmore: closed!

10 p.m. Sunday

• One final (I think) update for the day in the “just because” file:

9 p.m. Sunday

• Artisphere closed Monday.

• One less delivery option:

8:50 p.m. Sunday

Via WTOP: “Capital Bikeshare will close at 1 a.m Monday morning.” Good call.

8:40 p.m. Sunday

The Newseum is closed Monday; most other non-Smithsonian museums (i.e. the Textile Museum and Phillips Collection) are always closed on Mondays.

8:15 p.m. Sunday

• “AFI Silver Theatre closed Monday, Oct 29th, due to impending storm.”

7:55 p.m. Sunday

• Monday’s Bear In Heaven show at the Black Cat has been canceled.

7:40 p.m. Sunday

• The Kennedy Center is dark Monday, as is Signature Theatre.

7:30 p.m. Sunday

• All Smithsonian museums will be closed Monday.

7 p.m. Sunday

• Metro announces full suspension of service for Monday.

6:30 p.m Sunday

• A drink special is a really bad reason to put yourself at risk during a hurricane, but if you’re not working tomorrow and live in Petworth, DC Reynolds would like you to know:

6:10 p.m. Sunday

• What’s that saying again? “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow ... something something.”

• Federal offices are closed to the public Monday.

5:15 p.m. Sunday

• The Birchmere has canceled shows on Monday and Tuesday, but tonight’s Thomas Dolby show will proceed as planned.

• From the Burger Joint, here’s one way to use up a stockpile of ice cream when widespread power outages are expected:

4:30 p.m. Sunday

• Megabus has canceled a whole mess of trips from 5 p.m. today through Tuesday morning. [via @RT_Thomson]

• Ditto Boltbus, per NBC Washington.

• And Greyhound, via @AdamTuss. Basically, if you were planning to go anywhere by bus out of D.C., you aren’t until at least Wednesday.

4:15 p.m. Sunday

• Monday’s highlights tour of the Sackler Museum has been canceled due to the storm, but the Smithsonian hasn’t made a larger announcement regarding its operating status for Monday and beyond. (The Smithsonian’s American Indian Museum in New York is closed Monday and Tuesday.)

3:50 p.m. Sunday

• Sunday’s Raya Brass Band (featured in Friday’s Weekend section) show at Tropicalia has been canceled. The club will be closed.

2:45 p.m. Sunday

• MARC trains will not run on Monday.

Many local public school systems — including the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Fairfax County — will be closed Monday. Early voting in Maryland has also been.

11:30 a.m. Sunday

Butler’s Orchard cancels the final day of its annual pumpkin festival, though the pick-your-own pumpkin patch and farm market are open.

• The Ghost Story Tour of Washington, scheduled for Halloween night, has been moved to Nov. 3.

10:40 p.m. Saturday

Six Flags America will be closed Sunday due to Hurricane Sandy. Ditto Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
