A good place to see a concert, shop for bargains and run into Arnold Schwarzenegger. – Concerts
The 3,920-seat auditorium has quite a history--The Doors played there, so did The Clash, Chicago, REM and more recently Beck.The remodeling included big improvements inside as well. New seats, new carpet, new acoustic tiles and wallcoverings have made the run-down auditorium look new again.
Sales, Deals and Bargains
Vets' two exposition halls host a variety of sales events throughout the year. Staff pick for best event is the annual Bargain Box, a Junior League fundraiser where you can pick up upscale donated clothing and housewares cheap. J. Crew and Eddie Bauer sales are also popular.
It Got a Facelift
Once a hulking and charmless cement bunker, Vets now matches some of the more progressive architecture in town.
He'll Be Back To Pump You Up
Probably the best-known event is the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic, a body building competition which draws more than 35,000 contestants and spectators from all over the world each year.
