Just read a really informative article on Andy Shallal (you may have to register), the owner of DC’s Busboys and Poets. You may remember that venue from the “sound-seeing” visit I did a few months back during the Tuesday night open mic. (Check it out here).
Apparently he is quite the artist and entrepreneur. He is also going to be opening up an new Bus Boys and Poets in the Arlington area. I’m not sure if that one will be closer for me or not, but we’ll see.
Be on the lookout for an interview with him from Cloudy Day Art in the near future.
