As we go deeper into the summer, any excuse makes a great excuse to savor the sweet, refreshing, and creamy deliciousness that is an ice cream. And you know what’s cool? The whole month of July happens to be National Ice Cream Month! So read along and get ready to stuff your face with some of the city’s best ice cream treats. Don’t worry, we won’t judge. Calories don’t count when you’re happy, right? ;)

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. 

As classic as the era it was popularized in, which was the Roaring Twenties, Martinis are one of the most well-known cocktails in the world. Made with gin and vermouth (or vodka and vermouth, also known as vodka martinis), the cocktail has been known as an elegant drink that is made for the likings of James Bond. “Shaken, not stirred” – remember that iconic phrase? Well, in celebration of the National Martini Day, suit up, channel your inner Bond, and have a glass or two at some of our favorite spots in town! 

Happy National Donut Day! You know we love our foodie holidays here in Irving. Any reason to celebrate our favorite foods, right? Well today, we’re celebrating the country’s most beloved fried (or sometimes baked, ugh, okay we won’t judge) dough confection a.k.a donuts! Here are some of our favorite donut places in Irving. Take notes and get ready to stuff your face with these delicious concoctions of sugar, yeast, and magic! 

National Wine Day -- isn’t that a great way to kick off the Memorial Day weekend (which is also the official summer kickoff as a whole)? Whether you’re into the full-bodied reds, fruity whites, or sparkling Italian (perfect for the summer!), we could all agree that there’s a subtle warmth that only a glass of wine could offer. It’s elegant, smooth, but also light and fun, and for the love of vino! We will not let this great foodie holiday go to waste. Not in our city! So scroll down, read along, and plan your weekend of celebrating the fruit of the vine and welcoming summer in Irving. Cheers to that. ;) 

“Life is too short to eat basic food,” – y’all know that famous quote right? No? Oh, right, that’s because we just made it up! With so many bold flavors and daring combinations of food available around town, this quote is so relatable to us here in Irving. I mean y’all, we have everything from boozy milkshakes with a slice of pie on top, to a 46 ounce-steak that’s as big as our face! Scroll down and read more. 

I once heard someone say, “Motherhood is powered by love, fueled by coffee, and sustained by wine.” This quote got me chuckling, but I don’t think it’s entirely true. We moms run on so many other awesome things that we might not always get, but we love so dearly like mani-pedis, chocolate, movies, and late night Netflix binge when everyone else is asleep. So to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we’ve put together a fun itinerary, featuring some of the things mentioned above, for moms to make the most of the holiday in Irving.

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!
