The beloved Houston/Montrose restaurant, Baba Yega, reportedly caught fire Friday night during the dangerous storms.

(HOUSTON) — Bruch-time favorite eatery Baba Yega reportedly set fire during the nasty storms rolling through the city late Friday night. While it is not yet clear whether or not the storms had anything to do with the building fire, multiple sources across social media nearby have reported that the building has, in fact, been seen in flames. More information will be available as it is made available to About Magazine.

The quaint Montrose cafe which was named after a Slavic witch (according to the restaurant’s website) has been a favorite of the neighborhood and LGBTQ community since 1975. What was once a bungalow was eventually converted into the staple eatery with several spots on its campus both indoors and outdoors for guests to dine. Baba Yega is frequently packed to capacity for Sunday brunches, and also is equipped with private rooms for parties and events. Baba Yega’s owners are large supporters of the LGBTQ community and consistently make an effort to give back to local nonprofits, Montrose, and queer people.

This is a developing story.

EXCLUSIVE: How About Magazine Found Lady Gaga’s Houston Mansion For Super Bowl 51


 

HoustonFEB 2 – Instead of opting for a five-star hotel the mother monster chose to rent and rent big she did. The world’s biggest pop star has been in Houston since January 29 and will be here until after her Super Bowl performance on Sunday, February 5th.

Unlike past visits to Houston; Gaga had been keeping a low profile until a Starbucks adventure in a black Lamborghini caught wind on social media. Most likely the same black Lamborghini the ‘Joanne’ superstar arrived in at her press conference today.

Soon after a post to Instagram stirred the ‘Bey-hive,’ that sent media into a speculating frenzy of ‘possible’ collaboration with Beyonce for the Super Bowl 51 Pepsi Halftime Show the photo on Instagram was leading  About Magazine to Lady Gaga’s front door step.

The Mediterranean-style estate sits guarded behind a secure iron wall in the prestigious Memorial area. It should be noted that the security detail does not come with the property. The stunning mega-mansion features five bedroom suites according to the listing. Plenty of space for Gaga, family, and crew and its only 15 minutes away from NRG.

Martha Turner Sothebys International Realty agent Ruth Porterfield has the property listed for a cool  $ 7,495,000.  If thats not in the budget, the monthly rate will set you back an estimated $45,059.

The classically-styled, custom-built residence by Robert Dame features curated finishes and authentic details. Sadly, Gaga not included.

Some of the sumptuous amenities that no doubt Gaga enjoyed include; sheltered outdoor living and dining, resort-inspired pool surrounded by bluestone terraces. Venetian plaster walls and artisan painting. Walnut, alder and cypress wood cabinetry; honed limestone and walnut floors; enormous fireplaces in gathering kitchen and great room; first-floor master wing with onyx/marble-clad bathroom, exercise room.

Madonna’s Tour Stops At Tony’s Corner Pocket In Houston

It’s to late… The biggest pop star in the world has left town. Bet you did not know she was in Houston almost a week. Using Houston as a hub between some of her other show stops. But don’t worry, neither did many people. But as the saying goes…. the mice play while the cats away!!!!

Madonna’s crew of dancers wearing surgical masks hit up the popular go-go dancer-club on the edge of downtown this past week named Tony’s Corner Pocket. Apparently the crew of twenty or so wanted to have some fun. So what’s better on a Wednesday night?

Rumor is… while Madonna lay up in her presidential suite, the kids hit the town with Houston’s hottest make-up artist Edward Sanchez. According to multiple sources; the crew partied past midnight. One can only imagine the fun they encountered!

Another surprise, the surgical masks were not to hid their identities, apparently contracts with Madonna’s tour prohibit them from taking photos with fans!!!! WTF??? So they wear them in photo’s to hide their identity.
