Arrive early, park at the theater, and either walk over the bridge (over Harbor Blvd.) to Hero's restaurant or cross the train track (elevator) and eat at the Spaghetti Factory.
Sorry the picture is rotated, the guitar player is incredible! Look how close we were - front row.
We always park at the theater and then cross the train track to either the Spagetti Station or cross the bridge over Harbor Blvd to Heros. Heros has large portions and we get a box to take home for lunch the next day. They have a full bar.
For good drinks or appetizers, try the Tribune. For a good burger, try The Public House. Both are just minutes away.
I wore dress, my son wore dress pants, a polo, and sweater vest, and my husband wore Dockers and a short sleeve button shirt. .
If you are not familiar with the area, call the Maverick ahead of time, as it is a back street venue, tucked in between larger structures on the alley.
Downtown Fullerton has a variety of choices for dinner before the play, all within a mile of the Maverick Theater. And there is an open bar on site.
The weather was Perfect!. I wore A simple summer dress with flip flops..
unlike stated in the description the seating is not General Admission but was pre-assigned
Parking: if you get there early you could park in their lot. Other parking is on both sides of the street parallel to the south side of the RR track.
The weather was slightly windy and drizzling at night.. I wore casual clothes and boots.
We love Sunday shows because we can have a light meal, appetizers and a beverage or two before the 6pm show at one of the many restaurants across the train tracks. Kentro is yummy as is El Amerikano, best spicy margarita :-)
Sunday 6pm performance allows for an early dinner/happy hour at some of the restaurants north of the train tracks...we ate at Kentro Greek Kitchen and it was a peaceful and yummy experience.
Right across the railroad tracks is Downtown Fullerton. Many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. We ate at the Greek place, left my car parked in that lot then just walked over the bridge to the theater. So convenient.
The weather was cool and breezy evening.. I wore heavy coat, gloves and scarf..
