Wow!! The May Day JAMbalaya was incredible!! There could not have been a more perfect event. This day truly exposed the Mayday Family environment I’ve been trying to express over the last few months. There were so many patrons and first time guests at this event. I spent most of the day just people watching and soaking in the experience. Everywhere I looked were signs of people coming together from the community as a family. You could really see how proud everyone was to have Mayday and be a part of something so special. When the first batch of crawfish came out everyone was so excited. There were people crowding around to take pictures and video the moment. Tony from My Roots put on a beautiful performance of “plating the food.” People gathered at the table watching him spread the crawfish, and then add the lemons, potatoes, corn and seasoning was really fun. Oh yes, good times!!
What goes better with good food than good beer and good music?! Mayday also released their new beer Going CoMango. It’s a delicious Mango Shandy that is perfect for the upcoming hot summer days. In addition to the success of the new beer, they also had a great turnout for the open mic jam. Several local musicians came out to showcase their wonderful talents. It was truly a jam session also. So many of the musicians would play their sets, and then join in with other sets. They were treating it just like a jam session and rocking out some phenomenal music together. That’s what you do at family gatherings, right? Meet up on Sunday afternoons, cookout, and catch up, show of your talents and introduce the new people in your life.
There were several new people being introduced to Mayday this Sunday. Ozzy did a couple tours and the second tour was almost entirely people visiting the brewery for the first time. Alice brought Meaghan, all the way from Massachusetts. The girls were a riot. Alice was quick with the zingers like, “Auger…I barely know her!” and “No money for your package?! Sorry about your luck.” There were many more but I couldn’t keep up with them all. The zingers must have made her hungry because she ate half the bowl of animal crackers on this tour. This day was full of happy faces from all ages and for all reasons. Keep a lookout on the website and Facebook page for updates of other fabulous events at Mayday. They will most definitely be worth the trip. Ozzy and Mayday love the people so come out and show how much you love them!!
