The Milky Way's last show 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 22 will mark the official "transfer of love" to their new location. Fans of the venue are invited to join in the process which will include a New Orleans-style parade from the old location to the new.
In the spirit of a New Orleans jazz procession, the business will move seven blocks away to The Brewery Complex, at 284 Amory Street in Jamaica Plain and plans to re-open in early to mid April.
The new locale will include skee ball, dancing, live music, free parking, a 50-seat outdoor patio and of course their signature food and cocktails. Unfortunately, the Milky Way's vintage candlepin lanes will not be able to make the move.
When asked about the relocation, co-owner Kathie Mainzer emotes, "A move like this is a challenge for us and for the neighborhood who have enjoyed our dining room, patio and lounge for over 15 years. But, we are extremely excited for our new home, and we look forward to welcoming people to the Brewery complex."
