4 Things to Do After the Downtown Arlington Classic Car Show, Presented by Chevrolet

The Downtown Arlington Classic Car Show, Presented by Chevrolet is this Saturday, June 10th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and it promises to be a beautiful outdoor event admiring a large variety of vehicles from the 20th century. Along with these classic and antique automobiles will be games for the whole family and live music provided by the Arlington Music Hall. And the cool thing about this event is that everything wraps up early enough in the day to leave you with plenty of time to explore the rest of Downtown! Here’s four things to do after the classic car show this Saturday.

Restaurants in Order: Hurtado BBQ, Cane Rosso, Tipsy Oak, Cartel Taco, Inspirations Fork & Table

1. Indulge in a delicious meal from Downtown’s Urban Union

The Vandergriff Town Center and Urban Union are one stop shops where you can eat, play, and work all within walking distance from each other. Restaurants such as Grease Monkey Burger Shop & Social Club and Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers are centrally located in the classic car show while other restaurants are also conveniently located a short walk away. This makes it the perfect destination for when you work up an appetite walking around the car show or playing games for hours. From tacos to pizza to good ole Texan barbecue, Urban Union has it all! Here’s a list of must-try restaurants located near the big event.
