Last Tuesday we launched our very first SENIOR BREAKFAST DAY PARTY at our Anacostia location. The morning was filled with old-school jams, card games, dancing, laughter and of course our delicious breakfast food.

The day party celebrates the Wisdom, Experience, Knowledge and Resilience of our ELDERS in Anacostia! Unfortunately, seniors (our most valuable citizens) are often ignored.  That is about to change! Last Tuesday was such a hit that we will keep the party going every 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month.

Come play some cards, socialize, listen to some music, hand dance, or groove your way down the soul train line!  Enjoy a delicious Busboys Breakfast and *Seniors will receive a 20% discount on food and drink.

Busboys and Poets appreciates the ones who paved the way!

Quick Details:

  • Busboys and Poets Anacostia
  • 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, 9 am – 12 pm
  • Live DJ playing all the jams
  • 20% Senior Discount
  • Card Games and Hand Dancing
