The best part about a cheese board is how perfect it is for every occasion. No wait, actually the best thing about a cheese board is that it is a PLATE FULL OF CHEESE. The second best thing is their wide appeal. A cheese plate is always a welcome addition to any gathering.  At Nosh & Bottle, gorgeous show-stopping cheese and charcuterie boards take cheese to a whole new level. And the “big cheese” at this quaint neighborhood wine and cheese market located at the Toyota Music Factory, is going to teach you the secrets to building your own charcuterie board. With an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan breads, olives, fruit, and nuts, creating a cheese board has been likened to artistic self-care. When it’s a completed work of art, a charcuterie board quickly reinvents itself as a party in your mouth.  And what’s a party without some gameplay? The beat goes on with a few rounds of Musical Bingo. If you’re not familiar with music bingo, the host plays a tune, and you look for the song title or artist on a square on your card. If you like music and friendly places, you’ll be having fun in no time!

51% of workers are actively looking for a new job, even in the face of a pending recession. This reflects a more global crisis: more than half of workers suffer from burnout and 80% say the pandemic has taken a personal toll. In response, millions have quit their jobs in what has been dubbed the Great Resignation. In this highly interactive talk, you will learn why we don’t have to do “more” to better support our people. Instead, we must simply provide people the space to reflect and reconnect to why they came to their work in the first place. In doing so, not only will this change employees personal experience, it will change the culture and climate of the workplace as well. Unpack the science of purpose and explore why purpose-driven employees are more engaged and successful in their work and more likely to be thriving in their lives. Come away with evidence-based best practices and tangible strategies you can immediately implement in your role.

Connect with your TSAE cohorts while giving hope to kids in the Irving community. Bells won’t be ringing, but conversation will be flowing while you assemble Kids Care & Comfort Kits for children in Irving served by the local chapter of the Salvation Army. Each kit will include both hygiene and fun activity items for kids in a reusable bag, and most importantly will bring comfort and maybe even a smile to a child. Smiles all around! Hosted at the Irving Convention Center. Beverages and snacks will be available.

It wouldn’t be an excursion in the Lone Star state without a little honky tonkin’, so dust off your boots and two-step-it on over to Mama Tried for some “boot scootin’ boogie.” This honky tonk/pool hall and music destination (whew!) boasts cold beer, cocktails and classic country music. With hosted beverages and snacks, line dancing and pool playin’, you’ll be hootin’ and hollerin’ like true Texans.

Get ready to sip, play, selfie & stroll at this mosaic of events - a pub crawl, poker run, and photo contest  - all rolled into one BIG time. The fun and games commence as teams of five head to Irving’s adult playground, the Toyota Music Factory, to beat the clock on a quest to find five locations (hint: pub crawl), draw a playing card at each and take a team selfie which will earn the team an extra draw at the last stop. Join a team of fellow attendees for a little friendly competition and lots of fun… and you might also walk away a winner!

A beautiful lake and Venetian inspired waterways. Tree-lined, cobblestone walkways, with waterfalls, vine-covered bridges and “Old World” charm. Discover all of this in the heart of the Las Colinas Urban Center. Folks, this is not a walking tour! Adventure seekers should get ready to paddle down the iconic Mandalay Canals of Las Colinas in a kayak, wind your way past hotels, residences and office buildings on a stand up paddleboard or glide atop Lake Carolyn on a water trike. No matter what type of water play floats your boat, you’ll find it at the SUP Shack.  No lessons are required to sit high above the water on an aqua cycle – just get on and pedal for a fun, unique experience. With three wheels, wide paddles, and flexible steering, the trikes are easy to ride, stable, and easily maneuvered. Prefer kayaking, you got it. Want to take on the challenge of stand up paddle? Instructors will be on hand to get you up to speed.  Life jackets, water and basic instructions are included. Appropriate attire includes swimsuit, shorts, workout gear or whatever you are comfortable in. Just bring sunblock and a bright smile, and the friendly folks at the SUP Shack will take care of the rest. Hosted beverages and snacks included. Signing a waiver will be required for participation.

As you well know, a margarita cocktail made with tequila is to a Texan what a glass of chilled champagne might be to a Parisian – the preferred local drink to sip on not just on a warm summer evening, but all year long.  In this outdoor excursion planned for the courtyard of the uber hipster and retro Two Mules Cantina located at the Texican Court Hotel, we’ll school you on tequila with a triple tequila tasting (ay-ay-ay!) and then spice things up some more by providing you a hands-on experience making your own margarita. Salud!

Wine and cheese are two of life’s great culinary pleasures, and finding the perfect match can be a delicious endeavor. Have mercy! Some liken it to a nuanced culinary art - like Vincent, the sommelier at Mercy Bar & Lounge. Vincent will take you on a wine tour of the world by introducing you to both Old World and New World wines and sharing his knowledge about the cheeses that compliments them best. You’ll be treated to a pairing of four wines and four cheeses while learning about the nuances of the perfect pairings. If you are a wine enthusiast, this is a perfectly paired excursion for you.

Are you sharp and edgy? Are you ready for a social throwdown that’s sure to give you and your colleagues something to talk about? Stumpy’s Hatchet House, located in the Toyota Music Factory, hits the bullseye! Training will be provided by trusty throwing coaches before you take turns hurling hatchets in your private safe, controlled throwing pit. As you hone in on your form and technique, you might find hatchet “therapy” to be addicting.  This social gathering wouldn’t be a social throwdown without comfy couches to relax and enjoy a variety of beer, seltzer and light bites while cheering on your kick-axe comrades.  Boring stuff to know about your axe-perience: Must wear closed toe shoes. A signed waiver will be required for participation.

Sometimes we do things because we want to feel like a kid again, but sometimes we want to feel like the grown ups we are, too. And when it comes to hanging out with TSAE colleagues, the right combination of riotous fun and adult sophistication can make for an ideal outing. Experience the VIP bowling lounge at Pinstack Las Colinas, for this little excursion, and we promise it will be right up your alley. Seriously, these bowling lanes offer you an elevated bowling experience that is unlike anything you have encountered in your run-of-the-mill bowling alley. Plus, you’ll have a private bar and select hors d oeuvres to nosh on. So bring your socks, rock your bowling shoes, select your lucky ball, and strike out for a fun afternoon adventure.

You’ve heard of the three-martini lunch. Well, this isn’t one. But it will most certainly be a two-martini cocktail experience to remember - though some might prefer to call it an educational seminar. Register for this excursion and gather round the bar at Bar Louie for martini making. Pioneers of the original Gastrobar concept, Bar Louie is well known for its craft cocktails - both shaken and stirred - and YOU will have the exclusive opportunity to join one of Bar Louie’s expert mixologists to learn the secrets of making their signature martini cocktails. Then, discover your personal martini-style with hands-on experience making your own. Each participant will choose two of these iconic cocktails: The Diva, The Clover or Bar Louie's signature Cosmo. Additional beverages and light appetizers will be provided.
