Mingle with the boldest and bravest of foodies and the hottest celebrity chefs.  Sample fiery sauce, salsas, even chocolates and learn how to use them in recipes and remedies.  Watch an Atomic Wing Eating Contest, Puckerbutt's Jalapeno Eating Contest or attend a bonafide Pig Roast.  You can do all of this and more this weekend here in Irving.  For additional area events, log onto our website at www.irvingtexas.com.

I am just blown away by the long list of events happening here this weekend.  There’s hiking, music, live theater, sports and more.  It just goes to show you that when looking for your heart's desire, you don't need to look further than your own back yard.  Because everyone knows, there's no place like Irving.  For additional events in Irving and the surrounding area, visit our website at www.irvingtexas.com.

A King of Men Jan 13-15

Why is it important to remember the great leaders in our lifetime?  People come and go like shooting stars – shining with a burst of fury while they’re with us, and slowly fade away from memory.  Why then, after almost 50 years after his death, do we still hold Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. up as one of America’s great leaders?  This MLK Day weekend, there are two observances of his amazing life and legacy that will give you a glimpse into the answer to this question.  Both events are free and open to the public.  For additional area events, visit our webpage at www.visitirving.com.

Weekend Roundup for Jan 6-8

Take a birthday bash that lasts for two days, throw in an Elvis sighting, add a party with a bunch of penguins, and what do you get?  It's a recipe for another fun-filled weekend here in Irving.  Although the weather's not cooperating very well tonight, Saturday and Sunday should be in the 40's.  So go out, get a bite to eat, attend a birthday or penguin party (your preference), and be sure to catch a glimpse of Elvis. LET'S ROCK THIS NEW YEAR!!  For a full list of events in Irving and around the area, visit our website at www.irvingtexas.com.
