Start practicing your Vogueing, then get yourself to the Oberon to see Company One’s production of WIG OUT! from the Oscar-winning writer of Moonlight, Tarell Alvin McCraney. WIG OUT! is the catwalk showdown of the year. When the House of Light is challenged to a surprise ball by the rival House Di’abolique, they’ve got to leave it all on the floor to defend their family’s Legendary status. Fueled by a sizzling R&B playlist this show is a divine exploration of drag ball culture, chosen family, and the desire to be desired.

Much thanks to Rob who writes the blog Seduced by the New for posting this photo of my future ex-boyfriend. Now I just need to learn his name and meet him so he can fall madly in love with me.
A few weeks ago I met up with my friend Joe for breakfast in his neighborhood, Mission Hill. This tiny Boston neighborhood (less than a square mile) is not on a lot of people’s radar but its proximity to downtown makes it easy to get to.
In recent years, Mission Hill has seen gentrification change the landscape of the neighborhood and Milkweed which opened at the end of August in 2017 is a shining example of that gentrification (meant in the best possible context). Located in the former space of a neighborhood grocer, this bright and friendly restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
While I cannot comment on their lunch or dinner menu, I think Milkweed may have the most interesting breakfast menu I’ve seen in recent memory including everything from shakshuka to lucky charm pancakes (but more on that later). As one might expect the menu prices are very affordable with breakfast plates ranging from $6 – $14 (a quick look at their dinner menu shows main plates ranging from $16 – $22).
For breakfast Joe opted for the rather decadent “lucky charm pancakes”, which cost only $8 and was served as a stack sprinkled with extra lucky charms and powdered sugar. Although the photo doesn’t show it, the lucky charms are incorporated into the pancake batter. I cannot imagine the sugar high one has if they were to eat the entire stack. Joe put a pretty good dent into the pancakes but didn’t quite finish the plate.
I opted for something a tad healthier after our friendly waitress, Holly, explained that along with their shakshuka plate, the “Power Bowl” is a signature breakfast plate. The power bowl which is $13 is a melange of ingredients including quinoa, greens, two sunny side up eggs, roasted sweet potato and beets, avocado, candied pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, chick peas, and dressed with an avocado-lime vinaigrette. What this picture doesn’t do justice is how much food is included, but I “powered” through and ate most of it and leaving quite full.
Milkweed is owned by David Cawley and Ben Johnson and it has a beer and wine license. They are open seven days a week. Breakfast is served from 8AM – 2PM on weekends and holidays – reservations are not accepted for breakfast.
