UPDATED for Saturday openings/closings: As Snowstorm Nemo (isn't that a cute little fish?) continues to pelt the Northeast, grounding planes, shuttering government offices and generally wreaking havoc, the eternal question remains - which Portland restaurants and bars are braving it and staying open tonight? Snow or no snow, if you're determined to get out there and enjoy your Friday night, goddammit, here's a handy map to help you make your plans. Some places are offering special deals - mention the Blizzard of 2013 at Walter's, for instance, and get any entree for $20.13. Check back for updates before you pull on the ski pants and strap on the snowshoes. A tip: photo=OPEN; no photo=CLOSED.

Monday Update: Now that the storm has passed, these restaurants are back on their normal schedules.
