Party with Split This Rock

August 27, 2009 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Split This Rock invites you to a party at Busboys and Poets! The restaurant will be donating fabulous appetizers and creating a couple of funky Split This Rock cocktails.

Why party? Split This Rock has recently received nonprofit status, a crucial step on the road to becoming a permanent home for socially engaged poets from DC and nationwide. Plus, believe it or not, it’s just 6 months until the second Split This Rock Poetry Festival. So we figure it’s time to celebrate.

Reading and performing will be 2010 featured poet and DC leading light A.B. Spellman, along with Regie Cabico and the DC Youth Slam Team. Suggested donation is $10-$25, sliding scale, and you’ll have a chance to bid on amazing prizes at auction. Come prepared for readings, for fun, for volunteer opportunities, and for celebrating!

Can’t make the party? You can still volunteer — just contact us at the above email or phone. We’d love to have you involved! And you can definitely still make a donation by clicking here.

This event is cosponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies. For more information: or 202-787-5210.
