As far as first snows of the season go, this one doesn't fall into disaster territory, but the residents of D.C. and its surrounding suburbs are still contending with unplowed roads, slick conditions, delayed openings and power outages.

As with any major storm, restaurants tend to offer snow-specific deals to get diners and drinkers in the door, despite the weather. Eater will be keeping tabs on these deals throughout the day. Offering a special? Send a note to Fill us in if you're closing due to the weather as well.
