It wouldn't be May without some Star Wars fun for "May the Fourth Be With You"
Hello again my friends, and may I officially welcome you to Spring! The sun is coming around fast, so I hope we’re all ready for less showers and more flowers. Bellevue is blooming and beautiful, making it a perfect time to get out and explore some exciting activities.
What would May be without a little Star Wars celebration on May the Fourth and margaritas on Cinco De Mayo? Let us know if you celebrated that weekend, and what you got up to! Our crew had fun making this fun video: Reality Break Escapes - May The Force Be With You - Take 976
The arrival of Spring also means the arrival of Market Season. The classic Bellevue Farmers Market’s opening day is May 18, so mark your calendars and ready your market bags! The Bellevue Farmers Market will pop up on Thursdays from 3 - 7 p.m., so don’t miss out. If you haven’t checked it out yet, Bellevue is also welcoming the new Spring District Market every first Wednesday of the month until October.
If wandering around Bellevue is your thing, check out one of our Reality Break Escapes Scavenger Hunts before or after your market trip! I first played these in the Spring and I will personally vouch that there is no better time to be out and about in Bellevue. Alien Adventure will guide you through town in pursuit of invading aliens, and introducing you to darling art installments around the city at the same time. If you’re wanting to stay in one place, Panic in the Park will turn Downtown Bellevue Park into the setting of impending doom, and only you can save it!
While we’re here - don’t forget about Mom this month! Mother’s Day is May 14th and coming up quickly. Looking for the perfect brunch spot for Mom? Check out our favorites - Central Bar, Eques, or Duke’s. And don’t miss Forum Social House’s special Mother’s Day paint night!
With the weather looking so wonderful, it’s a perfect time to take Mom to the Bellevue Botanical Gardens and take in the sites. You could also treat your Mama to a spa day at Yuan Spa, or of course, our personal favorite: an escape room! In the name of research, I asked my Mom which RBE escape room is the best Mother’s Day outing: it’s the Lucky Duck Speakeasy! To sweeten the deal, you can use the code WeLuvMom to get your mom in for free on Mother’s Day Weekend (May 12 - 15). Book anytime for that weekend and Mom plays FREE!
To keep you entertained before Memorial Day weekend, check out Battle of the Bartenders on May 22nd. It’s a costume party and cocktail contest rolled into one, which is an unbelievably exciting thing to do on a Monday.
Of course, Memorial Day closes out the beautiful month of May with a three day weekend - what do you have planned? Let us know! If you’re still on the hunt, we’ll be open and excited to see you. As always, enjoy the month, enjoy Bellevue, and we’ll see you soon!
