|Move over, Cinco de Mayo! Ring the first of next month with a May Day celebration at Murfreesboro’s own Mayday Brewery.
While the newly launched brewery wasn’t named for the ancient spring holiday, it is a great opportunity to enjoy great music, have inspiring conversation and taste some yummy craft brews, owner Ozzy Nelson said.
“We want this to be an annual celebration every year,” he said, adding that he’s keeping fireworks and belly dancers in mind for next year.
In addition to live music and food truck fare, Mayday Brewery will be offering two-for-one specials every hour for each of its four brews – Boro Blonde, Angry Redhead, Velvet Hustle and Evil Octopus – from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1.

Beyoncé, Goodwill partner
If you didn’t already love Beyoncé, listen up for a reason to start.
Goodwill Industries International has announced Beyoncé Knowles-Carter will lend her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work. The announcement comes just as Beyoncé kicked off “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
“Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives,” Beyoncé said.
She will encourage fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts. Beyoncé is scheduled to perform Saturday, July 13 at Nashville’s own Bridgestone Arena.
Goodwill will have a mobile donation center onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The revenue from the sale of these donations will directly benefit local Goodwill agencies in their work to help people with disabilities and disadvantages, and anyone facing challenges to finding employment.
