The Summer Fun Continues with Around Arlington Meetup

Around Arlington Meetup enjoyed the last few outdoor events of the summer before the big Heat Wave hit.  We enjoyed a great outdoor performance and home grown Texas Rock by Band of Heathens at Levitt Pavilion.  And an Friday Night Slides at Hawaiian Falls in Mansfield. The park is open at nigh and for just $10 you can ride all of the slides. It’s a family friendly event and a fun way to cool off.  A morning bicycle ride along the paved trails at River Legacy Park was a cool start to the weekend. We also enjoyed a night under the stars watching Fast & Furious 7 outside UTA’s Maverick Activities Center. The free popcorn is a nice perk too!

July’s community service events included a prize filled evening at the Quarter Auction inside the Admiral Hotel. Money raised benefitted Alliance for Children, Tarrant County’s advocacy center. For each prize offered by a vendor, you can bid one to four quarters. If you bid, and your number is called, you win the prize. Bring a roll of quarters to the next one!

At our family friendly Happy Hour & Fundraiser at Fuzzy’s Tacos we collected donations for Grand Prairie’s Prairie Paws Adoption Center.  Our generous members donated dog food and treats, cleaning supplies, paper towels, and much more.

Members learned a lot of useful information at our monthly Homebuyers Workshop and Money Workshop hosted by Infinity Financial. And some of our single members attended Speed Dating for Singles 25-45 with MactchNMinutes at Sherlock’s Pub.

Of course we also had a great time socializing at other events too. A monthly favorite is $5 Burger Night at Bar Louie. We sampled the tasty buffet at Andalou’s Mediterranean. And we checked out a new spot, the R Bar in the Hilton hotel. The pizza was amazing!  Happy hour is always tasty at Piranha Sushi. This time we enjoyed the newly renovated Arlington Highlands location. And we wrapped up the month’s happy hour events at a newly reopened Arlington icon, JR Bentley’s. Burgers and fish and chips were the talk of the evening.
