KRLD — While most St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have come to a close, there are still plenty of enjoyable activities happening across the metroplex this weekend. KRLD’s Tasha Stevens provides some of the best options for you and your family!
— It is the big three: Food, Fashion and Fun — and you get them all at Thursday night’s Design and Dine at Classic BMW in Plano. See what is hot in fashion this spring, while munching on treats from DFW’s top restaurants and washing it all down with awesome cocktails.
— Spring is here, summer just around the corner, so this is a perfect way to get in that Endless Summer frame of mind. Check out the Beach Boys Thursday night at the Verizon.
— This is my kind of event. A celebration of all things food and drink. Savor Dallas runs Thursday through Sunday with multiple opportunities for you to check out the best Dallas has to offer in the food and drink scene!
— It doesn’t matter that St. Patrick’s Day was Tuesday. You can still savor a mystical evening conjuring images of emerald green shamrocks and spike-flowered thistles while enjoying dancing and Celtic music Friday night at the Allen Public Library as part of their Celtic Festival. Flashpoint and the K3 Sisters will offer an evening of traditional and modern Celtic music and dance.
— Get your fill of romance with the production “The King and I” at Fair Park Thursday through April 5.
— The legendary Stevie Wonder is doing his thing at the AAC Sunday.
— The Irving Tennis Classic runs through this Sunday at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Irving. The week-long tournament attracts an outstanding field of internationally ranked players. All proceeds generated from the Irving Tennis Classic will benefit Emily’s Place, a nonprofit organization that provides long-term “transformational” housing and resources for domestic violence survivors in Dallas and Collin County.
— It is that time of year again, ya’ll. General Granbury’s Birthday Bean Shindig and Bean-Rib-Brisket Cook-off is happening this Friday and Saturday at Granbury Square Plaza. This year’s birthday salute to General Granbury is all about beans and BBQ. Contests include the Out House Race, Bean Spittin’ and Bean Eating competitions.
— The guy’s voice is legendary, and I just realized that his music was in not one but two Patrick Swayze movies — both “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost.” See one half of the Righteous Brothers, Bill Medley, at the Granada Saturday night.
