Texas Stadium: Looking Back at a Legend

Sunday, October 24, 2021 4:00 PM by Carol Stoddard

If I asked you which football stadium had a hole in its roof so God can watch His favorite team play, would you know the answer? But, of course!

Much has been written about Irving's beloved Texas Stadium throughout the years. For almost 40 years, it housed America's team, the Dallas Cowboys, and showcased many memorable moments. It's where the Cowboys won their last Super Bowl game - all five Super Bowl games, in fact. This iconic stadium not only showcased action-packed NFL games, but it was also a hometown gathering place for graduations, high school football playoff games, concerts, and who can forget the drive-in movie theater in its parking lot? When Irving bid farewell to the Cowboys, we said goodbye to a gentle giant, a behemoth best friend, our white-topped mountain on the horizon. Join me in paying a posthumous tribute to this historic stadium during the 50th anniversary of its construction. Join me in honoring the great Texas Stadium.

Uniquely Irving: Edoko Omakase

When searching for the outstanding sushi in Irving, look no further than Edoko Omakase. This locally owned restaurant serves up only fresh ingredients and always sources from local farmers markets when possible, while the kitchen features a sushi chef expert with over 20 years of experience. All seafood served here is extremely high quality and you will feel as if you are dining along the shores of Japan with every bite. While sushi is king, there is an array of flavorful Japanese dishes for all to enjoy. Some of my favorites include the teriyaki chicken and shrimp tempura. Those looking to keep a vegetarian diet will enjoy the rich umami flavors through the vegetable tempura and the vege don with a mixed variety of pickled veggies served on top of sushi rice.

Uniquely Irving: Venetian Terrace

In Venice, cafes and restaurants along the canals make picture-perfect scenes that have been recaptured on Venice Beach in California, at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas and on the Mandalay Canals right here in Irving. The canals in Las Colinas are one of the most photographed locations in Irving, and Venetian Terrace is part of that beautiful scene. More like a palazzo (palace) than anything else, this wedding venue and restaurant has been bringing opulence, old-world charm and romance to Irving for over twenty years.
