Washingtonians can stick it to the man today all over the city. Many DC area restaurants, bars, and services are offering a little relief to us all.

Jason Koebler of the Washingtonian put together a nice little guide for folks looking to stick it to the man (my words, not his!). Metromix also has a nice roundup. I’m also including a bit of information that I collected myself.

My favorite!! Chipotle is good ANYday but today if you buy a burrito, burrito bol or salad keep your receipt to redeem for a free meal on April 17 or 18. With an unlimited number of tasty combinations, this is sure to be a caliente deal.
