Hi from Dave Chiasson and Barry Anechiarico
I think this is Saturday's 3PM show, but website says 7pm doors open. Error, right? https://www.midwaycafe.com/?fbclid=IwAR011fJuXkb1BJ99Tv39u3ROfko3lpN6PCRuDqU3Vwp6yPc3OSPvYX35x3Y
More sad news. John ( Roy ) Simone of the Fabulous Roy’s passed away. His services are tomorrow. See obituary in Legacy. Com
Gentrification and chain takeover creeping perilously close:
Flaƨhlight's inaugural show. Come turn us on.

Hello everyone!

As per Gov. Baker and our general manager/owner Jay Balerna, the Midway Cafe is remaining closed until further notice.

We are hoping to be back in action in April, and as soon as we have more information, we will be letting you know.

Please watch this space for details as soon as we have them.

Thank you all for your patronage, kind words, and support. Please stay healthy and safe, and we'll see you all back here soon!

Yrs,

The staff of the Midway Cafe
Jamaica Plain, MA

Hi everyone! An update:

We are following all State, Federal, and CDC mandated rules and regulations so we can remain open for business.

We are thoroughly cleaning the venue as always, wiping all surfaces down with approved disinfecting agents.

Also, as Mayor Walsh just announced, we are only allowing in half of the capacity to allow for social distance. Today a special guest in our social distancing series Jason Benett is performing at 5:30. Lenny will be holding it down at the bar.

Keep washing your hands and we’ll see a few of you here!

The #MidwayOrTheHighway Sunday #OpenMic is postponed for the moment but shall return. We will keep you updated on this here.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Hello everyone!

The safety and health of our patrons, employees, and all who perform here are the Midway's top concerns. We are hoping to remain in operation through this time of uncertainty and will keep everyone aware of any changes in the coming days and weeks.

The Midway Cafe is thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis. We have been taking some extra steps to ensure that we are adhering to the CDC's guidelines for helping to prevent the spread of the virus. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/cleaning-disinfection.html

Employees have been made aware of the important facts about COVID-19 and have been asked to abide by the latest public health guidance and hygienic recommendations.

Every touchable surface in the venue is being wiped down several times a day with bleach wipes. The entire bar area is sanitized daily, and we have made sure that there is plenty of antimicrobial soap in bathroom dispensers in addition to several hand sanitizer stations.

Any shows that are being postponed have been noted on our online calendar. All tickets will be honored for rescheduled shows once a new date is confirmed. Please check https://midwaycafe.com for up to date information on any reschedules.

If you are showing any of the symptoms of the virus or the flu, please stay at home and contact your medical provider immediately. We'll be here to welcome you back to the club once you feel better!

For more information on COVID-19, please follow this link to the Boston Public Health Commission's information page: https://www.boston.gov/news/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19-boston

Be well, stay safe, and take care!
