On Friday, November 12, Bella Luna Restaurant & the Milky Way Lounge will be celebrating our 17 year anniversary in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. As a thank you to the citywide family that has supported us all these years, we are proud to offer a week of free delectables and fun.
The Milky Way Lounge, Time Out Boston, Harpoon Brewery and John Dewar & Sons proudly present a night of free live music at Jamaica Plain's historic Haf...fenreffer brewery featuring Zili Misik. An all-female, Boston-based ensemble, Zili Misik retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse Zili's original creations and traditional folksongs. Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, Jamaican roots reggae, Afro-Brazilian samba, Afro-Cuban son, and African American spirituals, blues, jazz and neo soul, Zili Misik honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own: New World Soul. The women of this group have heritages and roots representing 5 countries and 3 continents. Time Out Boston will be in the house with a photo-booth to snap pictures of you, our community members. Admission is free, but we are suggesting a $3 donation to raise funds for the Hyde Square Task Force - an organization helping to diminish negative stereotypes of urban youth with their positive energy and dedication to improving their community.
Also in celebration of our birthday week, Bella Luna Restaurant will be providing a complimentary homemade dessert with the purchase of an entrée, Monday, November 15 through Saturday, November 20. Surround yourself with a sci-fi inspired riot of color - star lights, hand painted plates, red walls and a glittery quartz bar. Additionally, this season we are proud to feature the work of local artist Chris Plunkett, whose vibrant tree portraits brighten up our dining room. So come on in, enjoy our delicious food and beverage offerings, and join us in creating and supporting our community.
