Saturday, January 21 through Sunday, January 29
WestWorld of Scottsdale
16601 North Pima Road, Scottsdale
The biggest automobile event of the year rolls into Scottsdale this weekend, kicking off a weeklong party. There will be plenty of cars, of course, but when you get hungry for more than chrome, local food trucks and vendors will be ready to serve you. Fuel up on Hawaiian-style noodles from Island Noodles, turkey legs and corn dogs from Juicy's, or burgers and fries from The Orange Place. If you're looking for a lunch to match the caliber of the cars, order a lobster roll from Wicked Mail Lobster, and keep things rolling with sweet snacks from the Mini Donut Trolley. Tickets for the auction are available at a discounted price online.
