The first official event at the new Busboys and Poets location in Brookland at Monroe Street Market will be a nerd-tastic New Year’s Eve party. The Remix of the Nerds event will kick off at 9 p.m. at 625 Monroe St. NE, and will include entertainment like DJs, Dance Place performances, music, games, food, drinks, interactive art, performances by the Chocolate City Burlesque Troupe, a midnight countdown and more.
Tickets are available for $50 here, benefitting the Capital Area Food Bank and Split This Rock’s DC Youth Slam Team. Tickets include food and two drinks per person.
This is considered a pre-opening event for the new Busboys location; an official opening date is slated for this month sometime between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
