Over the weekend, winter storm Jonas dumped a record-breaking 29.2 inches of snow on the metro area, surpassing all past solo blizzards; that does not include the double-whammy snowstorms of 2010. As a result, there have been widespread closures, notably public schools in the city and surrounding counties, along with Towson University, University of Baltimore, UMBC and MICA. After spending the weekend cooped up, especially with no work or school today, you must be itching to get out and treat that cabin fever. Here’s a rundown on what you can do:

1. Mt. Vernon Marketplace

Dumplings and more await you.

2. Spoons Cafe

Nothing like a cup of coffee on a winter’s afternoon.

3. Charmington’s

Four words: sriracha black bean burger!

4. Blue Moon Cafe

The place may be a little short staffed, but you know it will be worth it.

I can’t feel my face, when I’m with you, #BaltimoreBlizzard ????

Restock: 1. Whole Foods Grab a few essentials, maybe on your way back from Harbor East (several heavy hitters, such as Anthropologie, J. Crew and South Moon Under, are open). 2. Eddie’s Market Shop local while snagging ingredients for a hearty Monday night dinner. 3. Safeway Area locations are open—though with limited inventory.
