Despite the atypical weather Boston has experienced so far this winter, you didn’t really think we’d go unscathed, did you? Winter Storm Mars, it’s apparently called, is dumping 6-10 inches of snow today, shuttering schools and many workplaces.

But likely, not your local watering hole: the ever-resilient restaurant and bar scene is ready to serve with half-price burgers, breakfast-for-dinner, the ultimate comfort food; fondue; and plenty more warming cocktails and specials.

Updated for Monday, February 8, here is a neighborhood guide to combatting stir-craziness. We’ll continue to update this list as the day progresses, but please confirm with the restaurants and bars before heading out in case circumstances have changed.
