As a blizzard approached D.C. on Friday and the local government was warning everyone to stay off the streets, Boundary Stone bar was packed. The bar and restaurant in D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood had its busiest night in its four-year history. On Saturday, it broke that record. And on Sunday, it broke that record, too.
While most restaurants and bars were closed, Boundary Stone was having its most profitable weekend, according to co-owner Matt Croke, selling more than 200 hot toddies throughout the weekend.
“What was awesome is that it was a neighborhood crowd,” Croke said. Boundary Stone expanded its space a few months ago — which contributed to its record sales — and during Snowzilla, it was consistently at full capacity of about 100 people. “It was all our neighbors here.”
