Try spicing up your weekend with these top five events in Irving! It's time to get out of the house and experience some heat - although missing in the weather, there's plenty of heat at the Irving Convention Center. Zest Fest is back in town and our taste buds are alive with excitement! There's also live music, a new wine bar to try out, a new twist on a beloved play, a chance to become one with the night creatures, plus so much more. From country to classic, mild to extremely spicy, indoors and out, there's plenty to do right here in Irving,

Not just my house or my closet, but my body too!

As a food aficionado, I have come to believe that when it comes international cuisines, the more unassuming the eatery, the more authentic the flavor. Think about it, there are countless of hole-in-a-wall spots that are home to the best tacos, falafels, and in this case, Japanese food! 

Created to be the lighter, more cheerful alternative to Sunday dinner, brunch has been embraced by the American society for more than 70 years. How can we not embrace it? The buffet, the eggs, the pastries, and mimosas! Oh…we can hardly wait for Sunday! Well in the meantime, allow us to list down some of our favorite brunch spots in Irving to get you inspired.
