There's a kind of amusing article in the Post's style section about yesterday's "snow" day, on the non-essential workers who spent part of their day at places like the Coupe and Kangaroo Boxing Club in the neighborhood.
I went to the Coupe for lunch with some buddies and noticed the photographer from the article's photo spending about 10 minutes taking a picture of that guy pouring coffee. We figured it was some kind of ad or something.
It's kind of a funny idea, essential vs non-essential. Most folks in the article say it's silly if not offensive, though mostly they don't seem to be government workers, so it's a moot point anyway.
What did you do on your snow day? Did you have the day off? Most places were open, so that was nice. And the coffee at the Coupe was delicious.
