July is peeking just around the corner and you know what that means . . . time to don your red, white and blue and celebrate America's independence. We are so fortunate to live and work in a city that offers a wide variety of patriotic events, including live music, food trucks, festivities for the whole family, fireworks, and did I mention live music?  Here are our recommended events to attend beginning this weekend.  You can also look on our website for more.  www.irvingtexas.com

Father's Day is this Sunday, if you didn't know! Wait, quick...where can I find a tie, wallet or something Dad-ish? No, no stop googling. Your Dad/Husband already has enough ties. Trust me, take him out to eat, enjoy some quality time together and make a few memories. We've gathered the top places in Irving to fill his belly this Father's Day. Come to Irving and enjoy some great food. 

Today is April 13 and you should be happy. It’s National Peach Cobbler Day!

We hear there’s a big debate in dessert land, so we want you to tell us where you stand. Are pies more superior or do cobblers rock your world?  Pie dates back to the Middle Ages, but cobblers were invented by early settlers in the American Colonies, who cooked them in pots over open fires. Sounds like cobbler might be the ultimate American treat. But hey, we’ll celebrate both – how about that?

Irving has a barbecue joint and it’s giving Dallas’ well known spots a run for their money. Meet FM Smokehouse. Tucked away on Highway 114 with side roads that can make it a little hard to get to is a brisket making, Texas craft beer slinging down home yummy factory. Meat lovers will rejoice over this great find and everyone will enjoy their focus on made from scratch menu items using quality ingredients.
