Food Factory After Dark car show

Are you passionate about classic cars and tasty food? Then the Food Factory is serving up the perfect dish each week when they host their own classic car show.

Each Friday the 1315 Commerce Avenue establishment is home to what has become known as Food Factory After Dark.

Car enthusiasts can view the classic cars that line up along Waterbury Avenue, which on average has roughly 100 cars and a dozen motorcycles on display.

The show began in June when Food Factory owners Tom Vlahakis and Eugene Limongelli where approached by a member of the Latin Cruisers, looking for a place to host their ‘Friday Night Cruise.’

“One of the members came here looking for a place and we were happy to accommodate them,” said Vlahakis.

As word spread of the Friday night fun, the event quickly grew, forcing Vlahakis to obtain a special permit to allow the cars to pour onto Waterbury Avenue.

Now each Friday beginning at around 6 p.m. cars arrive just as the DJ sets up to provide entertainment for the evening and happy hour and food specials begin at the Factory.

Admission is free and all are welcome to come check out the lineup or bring their own car for display. The only criteria is the vehicle must be 25 years or older.

“It’s a nice thing for the community, people bring their families and kids to enjoy the show and good food,” said Vlahakis.

The Food Factory holds a beer & wine license so happy hour specials include $2 domestic beers, $3 imported beers and $4 per glass of wine.

Food Factor After Dark will continue through the end of October.
