Need weekend plans? We have you covered!
The AT&T Byron Nelson is always a big deal in Big D, but this year it's even more so. The tournament is celebrating is 50th anniversary at its new home at Trinity Forest Golf Course in Dallas. The first rounds of competition kicked off on Thursday morning, but fans can get in on the action this weekend. Entry to the course costs $45 daily, and you can pop into one of several fan zones along the course for air conditioning and to watch who's playing on TV. There's also the Grey Goose 19th Hole Lounge, which will be serving libations. I'm told Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia and Matt Kuchar are the players to watch this year.
Another big talker this weekend is the royal wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting hitched Saturday at 6 a.m. Central time, and the British Emporium in Grapevine is opening early for the occasion. Show up beginning at 5 a.m. to enjoy tea and light refreshments, including wedding cake, before watching the event on TV. This watch party is free to attend, but the shop says to bring your own chair.
Have your tea and drink it too
Save your appetite for two foodie festivals this weekend.
The Taste Addison comes to Addison Circle Park Friday through Sunday, bringing with it some of the city's most popular restaurants to serve food and drinks. There's also live music slated for every day of the event. Entry each day costs $10-$20, and then you also have to purchase whatever you want to eat inside.
The Taste of Irving festival at Cimarron Park is one day, Saturday, and it's largely the same concept. This event also features family-friendly activities, a movie screening and live music across multiple stages. Entry to this event is free.
'T' is for 'tanto música'
The biggest music event of the weekend is Festival de Mayo at the Fair Park Colisuem. Bands Los Angeles Azuels, Conjunto Primavera, Los Rieleros del Norte and more will be there for a daylong celebration of Latin music on Sunday. Best of all, this festival is free to attend.
Tiney Ricciardi offers her weekend event picks every Thursday at 7:40 a.m. on KLIF-AM (570).
