The Bella Luna/Milky Way Mural in Hyde Square on Feb. 9, 2008

Remember the Bella Luna Mural?

Our "Throwback Thursday" Photo of the Day doesn't go back far, but it seems an age ago, doesn't it? Many of you will remember the Bella Luna/Milky Way mural that adorned the wall at the night spot's former home in Hyde Square. As many folks remember, the Milky Way announced it would shut down to move to the Brewery in 2008, but the mural remained until painted over when Caffe Aromi moved in a few years ago. Scott Willis took this richly-colored long exposure on Feb. 9, 2008.

Gallery: Restaurant Patios of Jamaica Plain

Patio season is in full swing. You might think you know every outdoor restaurant space in the neighborhood, but click through — you may find some you didn't know about. My bet for best patio some of you might've missed is the nicely designed space behind Simpli Bar & Bites in Forest Hills. Of course it's hard to make a gallery like this comprehensive. Please add any omissions in the comment section or email me at and I'll add a photo.
