This changing area of Prince George’s county is becoming already a new attraction for people who love arts and cultural events, thanks to this new spacious new Busboys location which is probably as big as its original and first location in NW, D.C.
This afternoon, I stopped by this new place and recorded this video. I talked to owner and artist Andy Shallal [who doesn’t read my blog] and the art curator-in-residence Simone Jacobson.
The new Busboys & Poets has a great feeling, its high ceeling and big windows provide with plenty of natural light and a sense of openess, its walls are filled with great art and murals, and its conference room is just perfect as a venue for film screenings, concerts and debates. I can see it happening already.
About the food, I didn’t get the chance to eat there today but I will return sometime soon.
