Like many other restaurants in D.C., Corduroy and Baby Wale will both be closed tonight due to the snow. Hopefully, owner Tom Power can use the time off to get some sleep. He emailed Eater to share the story of his attempt to get home after service last night (well, this morning, to be technical).

"It took me 6 hours (three miles in six hours - with many different routes attempted). I left at 12:36 AM and got home at 6:31 AM with the help of many people to get home tonight. My car's tires are not going to be changed in time to try that again anytime soon. Someone from WTOP stopped to help/interview me at around 4:30 and I heard myself on the radio at 5:30 while still stuck on the same hill. We will reopen Friday."
