"Eat-up!" at Busboys and Poets

Come out for a fun night of good food & drink, bingo like you’ve never seen it (seriously, it’s not what you think!), and behind-the-scenes stories from one of DC’s most popular bartenders. You’ll hear and learn things you didn’t even know you wanted to know. Plus, if you’ve been itching to make your restaurant excursions a little more rabble-rousing, we’ve got just the thing for you — but you’ll need to come to find out.

Souls in the Center members will join members of the All Souls Unitarian occasional book club in a field trip to attend this event after the recent book club discussion at the church of "Behind the Kitchen Door," by Saru Jayaraman and Eric Schlosser.

About EatUps:
EatUps are gatherings of awesome people, breaking bread with one another at “High Road” restaurants that provide better wages and benefits to their staff. At each EatUp, diners hear entertaining stories from restaurant workers and hang out with other cool folks who like to eat good food with a bit of rabble rousing. It’s a party with a cause.

    What is the $15 for besides a drink?

      Not sure but we can ask. There was something about a bingo activity and they may be collecting a few extra dollars to go toward the event's organizer. I believe they're affiliated with the Restaurant Organizing Council which represents the workers.

      Yes, it includes entertainment. I assume they might also have to pay for one of the party rooms for the event.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
