D.C.’s open-mic-and-awesome-food institution Busboys & Poets is turning five (it’s really only been around for five years!?). Celebrate with them this week at one of their three locations. There will be a ton of interesting events, and of course, great food. See the full list here.
Have a spare 15 minutes? Head to the E Street Theater at any point this week to catch a short film or two. It’s DC Shorts Film Festival, showcasing 97 short films from 12 countries. Or hobnob with the stars at one of the opening events on Thursday or Friday (or at their Sunday brunch) .
