Franky Bradley’s, the eclectic restaurant and bar proudly located in the Gayborhood, is a few short blocks from the Convention Center, making it an ideal spot to grab a bite and a drink. Guests who show their ticket stubs or proof of visiting the show will receive a 15 percent discount on any drinks or food, both at the bar and in the dining room.

In addition, Franky Bradley’s is offering an auto show-inspired cocktail called The Blur ($12). Made with Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, Creme de Cacao, Lilet, lemon, chocolate bitters and garnished with an orange twist, this creative concoction is named after the boxcar that the Little Rascals raced in and is a rift on a classic 20th century cocktail.
