PTC Stiffs Loosen-Up;
Slate Casket Company Lunch
The Porsche Touring Crew has set an August 25th luncheon date at a popular eatery that was once an equally successful Civil War-era casket manufacturing company.
The North Country Brew Pub, which for the past 15 years has built its reputation on good food, generous luncheon portions and more than 100 types of beers, has been a favorite stop for PTC members – and other travelers — for miles around its Slippery Rock location.
PTCr’s will order from a varied menu that includes a “Make your Own Burger” selection, a “Rachel from the Lake” (with fresh perch) and a non-meat “Forager’s Hoagie” veggie special. The Pub’s open-air shaded patio provides a perfect setting for a late-Summer sit-down, and an adjacent “private” parking area, set aside for members’ vehicles, is an added attraction.
The North Country property began life in 1805 when its original building became an Inn. But it wasn’t much later that father-and-son inn keepers and owners Peter and William Uber (No, they didn’t start a horse-and-buggy for hire business!) transitioned their cabinet making skills into a furniture business. Then, with the onslaught of the Civil War, a second “opportunity” knocked and the Ubers added casket manufacturing and undertaking to their offerings. “Uber and Sons Undertakers and Furniture Makers” prospered until servicing its last funeral in 1974, and last furniture transaction 20 years later.
PTC members and their cars will join at the Pub between 11 and 11:30 AM, with lunch to follow. As usual, all ARPCA members and their guests are welcome to attend. Other than their individual meals there is no cost to attendees – just sign up at motorsport.reg or by using the button below. The Porsche Touring Crew is always looking for destination suggestions; Tom Mueller (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Wayne Desbrow (email@example.com) welcome suggestions for favorite restaurant and destination ideas — no matter how far East, West, North or South!
Note: ARPCA and PTC remain focused on the health and safety of its participants. As such, face coverings (until seated at the luncheon table) and social distancing will be required during this event.
