As long as Texas’ beautiful spring weather continues to woo us outdoors, we’d sure like to spend a little less time inside preparing meals. Here’s an idea: let Downtown Arlington restaurants do the cooking for you.
In celebration of the unique flavors found in the heart of the city, Downtown Arlington is inviting residents and visitors to support local restaurants (and skip a night in your kitchen) by ordering take out every Tuesday through June 1.
In Downtown, there’s a smörgåsbord of dining options and flavors that are sure to entice any palate: gourmet pizzas a-plenty and burgers that you’ll write home about … delicious Japanese ramen and Korean bowls … gourmet charcuterie platters, award-winning barbecue, the original Irish Nachos, and Food Network-worthy desserts.
Take Out Tuesday is also a great excuse (not that you need one) to discover the district’s growing number of coffee shops or to take home your new favorite local craft beer. Downtown restaurants, cafes and pubs are regularly recognized by national and local media, including Trip Advisor, The Food Network, Dallas Morning News, Arlington Today, and Ft. Worth Weekly.
Take Out Tuesday Pop-Up Community Picnics
Take Out Tuesday is just part of the late spring/summer fun in store for visitors to Downtown Arlington. You also can make plans to take your take-out to a monthly pop-up community picnic. The picnics will pop-up in green space gems in Downtown. While you nosh, enjoy free live music from 6:30-8 p.m. You can BYOTO (Bring Your Own Take Out) and blanket or folding chairs to these events, and no RSVP is needed.
Last month’s Pop-Up Community Picnic took place at Gene Allen Park next to the Arlington Museum of Art and featured music by Mossy Tuesday.
The next event, set for May 11, will take place at DREAM Park next to the Levitt Pavilion. The third picnic, scheduled for June 1, will take place at the mini park adjacent to BBBA on Center Street, featuring music by Artemis Funk. Visit downtownarlington.org for details on the upcoming events.
