Smooth jazz music, candle-lit tables and large rose bouquets, paired with the finest appetizers and desserts in Lufkin, made Corks & Forks a romantic Saturday night for hundreds of people.

Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Tara Watson-Watkins said she wanted the event to be the perfect pre-Valentine’s Day weekend during which East Texans could enjoy good food, wine and music in a romantic atmosphere.
