Tours and Local Live Music Makes for a Phenomenal Weekend at Mayday!



Saturday, Saturday, Saturday! Come one. Come all. Come see the amazing Ozzy and take one of the crazy fun tours. They are every Saturday at 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00, no reservation required. I’m just going to go ahead and guarantee a good time. You will also get to meet The Mayday Treasure Terron as he starts the tour and pours the beer.  Sometimes you will even get to see me, standing of in the corner taking random pictures. Haha…You will also get to meet many of the regulars who take the tour on a regular basis. Some of these guys like Ray, Mike, Brittney, and Savanna have been on the tour so many times they are giving their souvenir tour glasses away as gifts, or having to remove their everyday glasses out of their kitchen cabinets at home to make room for more tour glasses. They are pretty cool glasses. It’s also fun how the regulars interact with Ozzy and help add to the fun of the tour. Just having so many people coming back regularly to take the tour lets you know that it is definitely something worth experiencing. Heck I think some of these guys have been on the tour “as many times as I have,” Ozzy would say. That’s a sure fire sign they are a good time.
Another thing that makes the tours so much fun is the level of audience participation. Ozzy encourages this by rewarding smart ass comments with an animal cracker. He goes through a lot of animal crackers. Every tour that I have been on has had me cracking up at some point along the way. Usually about halfway through everyone is loosened up and really having a good time and cracking all kinds of jokes and one-liners. You will hear things like Brian asking “Is Ron Jeremy your dad?” Then Rachael said, referring to the animal crackers, “down for a good cause.” “Puff, puff pass” is probably one of the best things I’ve heard on the tour. Jared was a very clever man to come up with that one. The most common things I hear people say are “This is the best tour I have ever been on.” “I have never been on a tour like this before.” It makes the whole experience that much better when you hear so many people say that about Ozzy and his tours. We have had several people travel here just because of these tours. Meaghan came from Massachusetts to take a tour. Kris and his wife came from Georgia; friends from Wisconsin and Michigan have also made the trip. There are many, many more traveling people that have taken a Mayday tour and will be many more. SO come take a tour. Not only do you get a cool glass, ample samples, crazy Ozzy and the occasional serenade or instrumental preview from the band, you also meet some really cool people and have a phenomenal time!

Don’t forget to stick around and check out the bands also. Another great part of Mayday is how they help and support local musicians. Their music motto is “No cover charges and no cover bands.” These musicians come to perform for the love of the people and Mayday. Come listen and support them and help them to get their names and music out to the masses! Every Friday and Saturday there are live bands. Sometimes there will be music on Thursdays also. Also, keep a lookout; we might start a “selfie with the band” posting. Already have a few. Get to Mayday this weekend for a really fun time!
