May is a joyful time of the year. It’s a time when we celebrate graduations, weddings, Mother’s Day and just being outside more. Not only are the flowers blooming and the sun shining, but more businesses are staying open longer. We are also seeing more outdoor events happening again, including the return of the First Fridays Block Parties at 1911 Smokehouse BBQ.
