One way or another, Snowquester is happening. Federal workers have the day off, school systems across the area are closed but many points of interest -- museums, bars, restaurants -- are open for business. We'll update this list of openings, closings and other snow day miscellany, whether the white stuff actually begins to accumulate or not.
• The opening night events for the DC Independent Film Festival are postponed.
• Ex-Cops have cancelled tonight's concert at the Rock and Roll Hotel. ("They're coming from Cleveland, where there's real snow," says Rock and Roll Hotel co-owner Fritz Wood.) The show will be rescheduled, and all tickets will be valid for the new date. Refunds are available at the place of purchase.
