Bus Boys and Poets

After we were finished with our activist activities on D.C. on July 23rd, we decided to eat lunch at a restaurant we had been to before there – Bus Boys and Poets – on V and 14th.  Not only is the food superb, but it is a great hangout for activists, with a book store (operated by Teaching for Change) that sells great literature from well known figures and a room for activist activities such as poetry slams, concerts, discussions/talks, etc.  They even let you bring in your signs you’ve used during a march from the day!
