Kramers, Ben's, and Busboys

After the reading in Rock Creek Park, and for few a few hours the next day, Joseph and I got to hang out a bit in D.C.

Kramers. I spent many an evening falling in love with books and their covers in this 24-hour bookstore/eatery/hotspot. Wish I had taken pictures of the interior, but if you've ever been it hasn't changed at all.

U Street

Ben's Chili Bowl. I lived in D.C. for three years before grad school and never ate there (and I know the owner's son, sort of!). But we made up for that with breakfast, complete a chili dog on the side. Yum!

Bringing sexy back!

Busboys and Poets. Another restaurant/bookstore/hotspot that truly impressed me. What a wonderful place to come to if you want to buy a book, get a quick cup of coffee, or hear great poetry. It truly is a neighborhood gathering spot.

What great places. Wish we had the population in our little city to support book shops and cafes combined - I'd hang out there. So would a lot of people I know. You never know, someone might get creative and get one up and going. Thanks for the photos! You're looking rather stunning.

Oh, you're making me miss my old hood. I lived at 13th and U - really, right there at the corner (well, 3 houses down), when I first moved to DC, then later over by DuPont Circle. I love and miss Kramerbooks, it's the first place I go whenever I'm back in DC. Busboy's is new since I left - I'll have to check that out on the next trip.
