♥️ Thank you for coming to see us!
Busboys and Poets is a community where racial and cultural connections are consciously uplifted... a place to take a deliberate pause and feed your mind, body, and soul... a space for art, culture, and politics to intentionally collide... we believe that by creating such a space we can inspire social change and begin to transform our community and the world.
Busboys and Poets is proud to be named in honor of renowned black poet, Langston Hughes. In the early 1920s, Hughes resided in Washington, D.C. where he worked as a busboy at the Wardman Park Hotel. One evening, he placed several of his poems on the dinner table of American poet, Nicholas Vachel Linday. The next day, in local newspapere, Linday informed the world of his meeting with a "busboy poet." #WashingtonDC #BusboysandPoets #restaurants #foodie #breakfast #brunch #family #cousins #bookstore #peace #love #poetry #art #travel
