OK, my family thinks I'm crazy, but friends and I are planning to Metro into DC early on the morning of Jan 20th. My thought is to exit at Eastern Market and then walk up Pennsylvania Ave SE towards the Capitol. Have a good breakfast/brunch and then head over to the millions on the Mall.
Any thoughts on restaurants/bars which may be open by 7am? I would think that some places will be opening early in anticipation of the throngs. Anyone with advanced knowledge of Matchbox or other establishment's plans for that morning?
