On Sunday, May 6th 2012, Old California Restaurant Row hosted a Car Show and Art Walk in the parking lot and along the Village Shops! It was a Sunday Classic with a perfect blend of flavors that included Great Food, Great Cars, Live Music and an Art Walk. From Ferraris to street rods to old classics, the car show had something for everyone. The Art consisted of paintings, jewelry, Pictures, Framed Art, hand made cards, wreaths, hats, flowers and much more. The Music was great and performed by Bill Bradburry and Gunner Biggs. This was the first of many Summer Events scheduled at Restaurant Row in 2012. Click Here to stay informed about upcoming events at Restaurant Row.
Here’s me and the family out enjoying a well deserved day off. It was a great day for us as we don’t gt many days to enjoy as a family, so having a great event like a car show and art walk just made me & my son smile from ear to ear. The day started off right lunch at Old California Coffee House & Eatery where we enjoyed a delicious sandwich and a cup of soup. I grabbed a blended dessert drink for the raod and hit the parking lot with Giovanna & Dylan. Below is a picture of my friends Bill & Gunnar, who I recommended them for this event.
The Artwalk & Musical Performance in the Village Shops area featuring local artists and a performance by MandoBasso, a duo featuring Gunnar Biggs on bass and Bill Bradbury on mandolin.
Here we are in the parking lot behind Old California Coffee House & Eatery directly in front of Rhythm City Gill and Canape’s and the Village Shops… Just so you can get an idea of where the event was held. As you can see, there were several artists that lined the walkway from Old Cal Coffee to the Village Shops in the Back.
Several hundred people, maybe even a thousand or more during the three hour event visited the car show and Art Walk in Restaurant Row. We were there for just over an hour and we already saw several hundred people ourselves and it was getting busier and busier as the event went on. Restaurant Row did a stupendous job in creating a wonderful event for the community of San Marcos and surrounding cities to come and enjoy such a unique and cool attraction.
The Art Walk and the Car Show was FREE to attend & FREE to park. They had it all roped off, so you could walk around the parking lot and not have to worry about getting hit by a car. They brought in extra rest rooms to accommodate the extra crowds. The weather was amazing as it always is in San Marcos Ca. All in all, this was an excellent event and I would highly recommend attending the next one! You might want to stay tuned for future events at Restaurant Row, because if they are anything like this one, it will sure be a great time for all.
