In the May/June issue of Scout, we’re getting to know the neighborhood. We pull up a seat at Mass. Ave. Diner, where one of the main ingredients in every dish is community, and grab a drink with Paul Mariner, color commentator for the New England Revolution, a rockstar footballer who’s “hiding in plain sight” here in Cambridge. We talk to a local photographer who’s turned her home into a safe space for women to express themselves and ask Cambridge cabbies what they’ve seen in the decades they’ve been driving around town. And we also have a special treat for ya: a guide to finding some of the cutest shop dogs in the city.
On the news side, we take a look at what the new inclusionary housing standards mean for affordability in Cambridge—and ask councilors if they do enough to address our housing crisis. And of course, we’ve got all kinds of updates for you about restaurant openings and more.
