Irving, Texas Weekend Roundup - June 12-14

Thursday, June 11, 2015 12:00 PM by Kayla Mansour

A wonderful weekend awaits in Irving for YOU! Let's see if I can get this all in...there's live music, global wellness day, Boy Scout radio badge program at a one-of-a-kind amateur radio convention, season ending musical and free health screenings. Whew, now pick a few off the list and enjoy your weekend! 

If you haven’t had a steak at Cool River Cafe, well then you just haven’t had a steak. It’s definitely my recommendation for a nice evening dinner.  But for lunch?  Unless you can crawl under your desk and take a siesta once you’re back at the office, you might want to check out one of the lighter dishes now being served at Cool River.

Literally, there is something for everyone to do this weekend in Irving, Texas, and not just weekend chores. The AT&T Byron Nelson is in town, the Dallas Women's Expo is at the Irving Convention Center, Deep Irving Market Day in downtown Irving and there's a slew of food options to dive into highlighted in our recent blog post. See more at: www.irvingtexas.com/events.

A trip to the AT&T Byron Nelson wouldn’t be complete without a little PGA TOUR player spotting. Pros come to the TPC Four Season to compete, but hey they need to eat too. So during the week of the Nelson they are practically everywhere, all the time, and for the most part, they’re used to being gawked at and signing autographs. But if you want to avoid looking like a creeper, I suggest you eat, shop, drink and play among the pros in their natural habitats—a mix of restaurants, bars and uniquely Irving establishments (make your reservations now). We give you: Top 5 Places to See PGA TOUR Players Off the Course During Nelson Week. Now... just act natural.

Memorial Day weekend is here! Great things are ahead - like summer and being able to wear white pants (don't event think about it until Monday). With our minds focused on those who've served, here are some additional ways to enjoy that extra day in your weekend mix. These are our top picks of where to eat, what to see or do, and where to stay. See more at: www.irvingtexas.com/events.
