Speculation and excitement of recent weeks turned to anticipation and more excitement in Hyattsville, MD yesterday when Busboys and Poets announced on Facebook that they would open their Hyattsville location
- Busboys @ Hyattsville
5331 Baltimore Ave. Suite 104
Hyattsville, MD 20781
on Monday 7/18/11 at 4:00 p.m. In our own household these feelings were also at a peak as I have been invited to speak there the following week on Thursday 7/28/11 as part of a local author event, along with authors Julia Duin, David Levy and William Loizeaux.
If you’re not familiar with Busboys be sure to check out their website where you will find a very interesting mission statement http://www.busboysandpoets.com/about.php and a menu tab where you can see what food is offered. I have been assured that our new Busboys @ Hyattsville will offer the same wonderful food we have experienced at the U Street Corridor. So far, our favorites have been: Portobello with pesto, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella on herb ciabatta; Catfish with a lemon butter sauce, served with tomatoes, capers, collard greens, and a corn cake; and Shrimp and Grits – sauteed shrimps with asparagus and roasted corn and tomatoes in a Cajun cream sauce served with basil grits cake. If you are one of my usual readers, you know that I have posted a number of times about Busboys and Poets — how we were invited by author James Loewen, went there a week later to hear author/TV newsman Bruce Johnson’s presentation, became friends with children’s author Paula Young Shelton , and were awed by authors Rawn James, Jr., Clarence Lusane, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. (You can use the search button on this blog to find other posts about Busboys and Poets). Additionally, we’ve made new friends at the A.C.T.O.R. (A Continuing Talk on Race) group which meets at BB&P on V Street on the first Sunday of each month.
I’m sure you’ll find us at Busboys @ Hyattsville frequently and hope we’ll see you there on July 28. By the way, if you don’t make it, here’s a book ordering tip: Sometimes at teachingforchange.org and other online webstores, if you can’t find my books (Well Considered and Cologne No. 10 for Men) by only entering the title, try adding “by Richard Morris” to the title to make it come right up!
