What do May flowers bring? Margaritas, moms, & more!



If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

June bugs!

Last year we really didn’t get May in Beaverton. It stayed cold and rainy throughout the month instead of the usual balance of showers and sunshine. At least that’s what I remember.

So… this year we have kindly reached out to Mother Nature, in honor of Mother’s Day, to request a more celebratory transition into summer. Here’s how we plan to celebrate a few key events this month:


Margaritas! We don’t just need to rely on the Cinco de Mayo to enjoy a margarita and some great Mexican food. There are so many great places to enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine in Beaverton. Casa Lola and La Parilla Kitchen are local favorites, plus don’t forget all the great food carts in the BG’s Food Cartel and along Allen Blvd!


Moms! Yeah, moms deserve our love and gifts every day of the year for giving us life (and putting up with us). But we do reserve Mother’s Day as an extra special day to show our appreciation. Did you know there is a long list of mom-owned businesses in Beaverton? Does mom need a new hairstyle or haircut (or does she tell you that you need one)? Go see Jessi at Formation Hair. Everyone need a trip for some ice cream? Go no further than the fabulous Beaverton location of Salt & Straw! And don’t miss out on all the mom-owned businesses at Beaverton Farmer’s Market!


Memorials! We salute our veterans for their service to our country, and the sacrifices many have made in the line of duty. Be sure to get out and show your support and say thank you. When you are out eating and shopping, pay special attention to signs for Veteran-owned businesses. If you need some work on your home or business appliances, be sure to reach out to Quinn at A & P Appliance Parts & Service. Need cookies? Visit our friends at Grove Cookie Company. Yeah, they might be just into Tigard, but they are a mom and pop and veteran owned business!

Wishing you all joy and good health throughout the month!
