Poetry slams. Live concerts. Gourmet dinner parties. Busboys and Poets hosts all three on a weekly basis. Part bookstore, part entertainment venue, part restaurant, the community hub is an outpost for creativity in its many forms. It regularly hosts local authors and poets whose very works are stocked within the bookstore, leading conversations and readings that are designed to spark conversations.
When there isn’t a reading on the calendar, there’s probably a live concert courtesy of a local or nationally renowned artist or group. And even when there’s nothing special going on at Busboys and Poets, what the chef’s doing in the kitchen is really always special. Sit down for a meal in the eatery part of Busboys and Poets to tuck into a juicy gourmet burger or a bowl of vegan stir-fry. The massive menu is available for indoor and outdoor dining on-site, but you can also take just about everything to-go—including a jar of sangria or margarita. You can even bring home a full pitcher of cocktails if you’re hosting a dinner party.
