We’ve had a great week in Arlington.
We saw our hometown kid and Martin High School graduate Myles Garret get drafted #1 in the NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. It was exciting for all of us and extra special because he decided to skip attending the draft in Philadelphia to stay in Arlington with his friends and family!
Congratulations Myles! I’d say he’s gonna have a great weekend.
Even though you didn’t get drafted to play a game you love and make lots of money, you too can have great weekend in Arlington!
Celebrating a birthday? Don’t forget about grabbing a free birthday meal at one of these restaurants.
Wanna catch up with friends? Head out to a happy hour and cool off with refreshing drinks.
