May 2018

“May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive.”

-Fennel Hudson

 

May does make you feel alive.  It is another one of those perfect months in Las Vegas. The weather is great. Entertainment is plentiful. School is almost out. The summer season is almost upon us, and the pool party schedule is active until September.  May has always been an instrumental month for shows…especially new ones. Shows have to get established in May if they are going to survive in the summer.  If a show can survive the summer then they’ll usually do well in the busier fall season.

The latest development on the Strip…more parking fees.  It is unconscionable.  And the locals are really feeling alienated.  There is not one local that I know of that now supports the Strip.  We (the locals) used to try all the new restaurants on the Strip.  We used to meet at the Forum Shops.  We used to go down to the Strip for fun…but not anymore.  We have no desire to pay $15 - $20 for the privilege of going to the mall…or trying a new restaurant…or enjoying a stroll to watch the tourists.  We don’t support the Strip any longer.  It’s done.

May is a lot of things…it is Date Your Mate Month, National Barbecue Month, and National Blood Pressure Month.

May 1st is of course May Day (initially started as another pagan spring festival pre-dating Christianity.)  Dancing around a pole might sound like a Vegas tradition, but there really aren’t a lot of maypole dancers out there.  The one rhyme that is most closely associated with the May Pole dance is “Ring around the rosy…” –a quaint nod to the plague in medieval times.  In the late 19th Century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers' Day by the Socialists and Communists of the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago. In those countries that celebrate International Workers' Day, the day may also be referred to as "May Day" but it is a different celebration from the traditional May Day…just thought you should know. It is also Mother Goose Day.

The 2nd is Baby Day and Brothers and Sisters Day. The 3rd is Lumpy Rug Day. May the Fourth, obviously, Star Wars Day, and Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for May the 5th. The 6th is International Tuba Day, National Tourist Appreciation Day, National Nurses Day, No Diet Day, and Space Day. The 7th is National Tourism Day and World Naked Gardening Day (There will be a lot of hoes out.) The 8th is V-E Day, and No Socks Day…which is interesting because the 9th is Lost Sock Memorial Day. It is then followed on the 10th by Clean up Your Room Day. The 11th is Eat What You Want Day and Twilight Zone Day. And the 12th is Limerick Day (There once was…)

The 13th is Mother's Day!!! The 16th is Love a Tree Day, National Sea Monkey Day, and Wear Purple for Peace Day. The 18th is No Dirty Dishes Day and Visit Your Relatives Day. The 20th is Be a Millionaire Day. The 21st is Armed Forces Day. The 22nd is Buy a Musical, Instrument Day, and World Goth Day,

The 23rd Lucky Penny Day; the 24th National Escargot Day, the 25th National Wine Day and Tap Dance Day, the 26th is Sally Ride Day, and the 27th is Sun Screen Day.

The 28th is Amnesty International Day, and International Jazz Day. The 29th is Learn About Composting Day. The 30th is Water a Flower Day. And finally, the 31st is Save Your Hearing Day.

Cinco de Mayo is a big celebration in Vegas.  Every bar and club will have Cinco de Mayo celebrations…Save water, drink a margarita. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.  In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.


Remember that Mother's Day is on the 13th. If you're in town, there are several shows that will offer specials for you and your mother; every buffet and restaurant in the city is offering some sort of deal. Remember your Mother!


May 15th is the 113th Anniversary of the founding of the City of Las Vegas. No one really cares about this statistic. We had a great 100-year celebration, and we may have to wait for the 125 or 150-year mark to get the city to celebrate again.
