Water main break near Vapiano[edit]

NBC4 says that M St. between 16th and Conn. will be closed due to a water main break that won't be fixed until 11pm tonite. Should we call Vapiano ahead of time to see if they're open?--FeanorStar7

I just called the restaurant to see. The man on the phone had no idea about the water break and said that they were currently open. He expected them to continue to be open, but suggested that we could always call and confirm again later. The restaurant is apparently just on the west side of the intersection that is closed. Motorists are "advised to avoid the area" (see: NBC story). The number is 202-640-1868. That said, I'd be fine with rescheduling if people wanted to. Things could get worse (or better).

Thanks, I planned to call later in the day; I wasn't sure they would be open yet; but this is useful to know now. I just wanted to alert people to the possibility that we may have to reschedule or move elsewhere...--FeanorStar7
I just called again a few minutes ago... they are open--FS7
