Draft – Early- August 2022
Greetings Members of ARPCA,
We are approaching the end of the “Dog Days of Summer” so named due to the appearance of Sirius (aka the Dog Star) in the sky with the rising and setting of the Sun. Ancient Roman beliefs held that the appearance of Sirius in the sky provided additional heat giving rise to this long hot stretch of weather.
While the Dog Days might be nearing an end the Summer fun for ARPCA members is still going strong. See below for more information about Porsche at the Lot, Cars ‘N’ Coffee, Cars ‘N’ Carls, the Porsche Touring Crew, and a return to the Grand Concourse.
Stay cool out there,

Start your weekend in the company of fellow ARPCA members for an upscale cars-n-coffee event at The Lot at Edgewater restaurant in Oakmont, Pa.
The Lot at Edgewater is a full-service restaurant that offers a wide menu selection including traditional favorites like Belgian waffles, house-cured bacon steak, made-to-order omelets as well as specialties such as avocado toast with pepper jam and a fried egg. There is a full-service coffee bar with a large assortment of pastries and a full-service bar featuring brunch cocktails, alcoholic milkshakes, and craft beers.
Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee – August 13th, 2022
Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee (PGHCNC) will welcome ARPCA as Porsche will be the featured vehicle for the August 13th meet. The main parking area will be completely reserved for Porsche-only vehicles. You are welcome to bring your non-Porsche sports cars but ask that you do not park in the main coned-off area. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation so that we may park the featured vehicles together.
ARPCA Cars ‘N’ Carls – August 14th, 2022
This event is for the guy or girl who wants great food, super friends, and a cool Porsche car show. Cars ‘n Carl’s (say that 3 times fast) is sure to be one of the spiciest events of the summer! Carl’s Tavern has been feeding Pittsburgh since 1953. Carl’s introduced the Car Burger and Pittsburgh’s one-of-a-kind fish sandwich 69 years ago and has served over 1 million meals to their Pittsburgh community. Carl’s Tavern is a Pittsburgh Landmark with the tradition of this family business starting in 1933.
Carl’s Tavern is normally closed on Sundays but will be opening up just for us! You will not want to miss this event at Carl’s with your P-Car! Carl’s is located at 3386 William Penn Hwy, Pittsburgh, 15235, event day is Sunday, August 14th from Noon – 4 PM.
Porsche Touring Crew – August 23rd, 2022
ARPCA’s Porsche Touring Crew – for the most part, a gaggle of good-humored malcontents and aging contrarians — always seems to be doing things “their own way.” And PTC is adding to that reputation with a mid-Summer quest for the best Italian eatery in the area.
The Crew has announced plans to re-convene August 23rd for an excursion to Angelo’s (www.angelosrestaurant.com), a third-generation Washington County eatery with a widespread reputation for excellence and innovative, as well as quality. It all started back in 1939 with Angelo and Giacomina Passalacqua opened a small neighbor tavern in Washington.
Porsches at Station Square – August 27th, 2022
Allegheny Region Porsche Club of America is once again hosting a People’s Choice Concourse, Car Show, and Social at Station Square. This is the eighth year for this fantastic event.
Station Square will close West Station Square Drive for exclusive Porsche parking. The display area will begin in front of the Grand Concourse restaurant (just below the Smithfield Street Bridge) and occupy the street westward toward the Hard Rock Cafe. Space is limited to 50 vehicles. Security guards will be present to monitor the car display. After perusing through the Porsches, make sure to cast your ballot for your favorite Porsche (other than your own, of course).
