RECAP PTC Angelo’s


PTC’s Early Washington Election:
Good Food Seasoned with Jazz History 

Shown above are some of the 30 ARPCA members who registered for the Porsche Touring Crew’s August 23rd outing to Angelo’s Restaurant in Washington, PA.

After the group feasted on Angelo’s turkey panini, homemade lasagna and death-by-chocolate gelato, PTCr’s took a few minutes to admire Mark Frumkin’s 2013 Mahogany Metallic Boxster which, of course, stopped traffic in front of the restaurant.  Mark recently acquired the immaculate, heavily-optioned 6-speed S-variant.

Michael Passalacqua,  Angelo’s current (and third generation) owner, is himself a “recovering” vintage and sports car fanatic, and was thrilled to have 20 P-Cars adorning the front lot of his eatery!  Michael and his staff made good on their promise to take particularly good care of the PTC caravan and their vehicles.

In addition to good food and conversation, the event featured Bob Stark, a multi-instrumentalist, jazz history aficionado and Washington Jazz Society board member, as a guest speaker.  Stark took the group on an informative trip through the social conditions and historical events that shaped the Pittsburgh Region into major incubator for jazz talent.  His passion for the music was obvious as he recounted anecdotes about Pittsburghers Billy Strayhorn, Errol Garner, Art Blakey, Mary Lou Williams, George Benson, and others.

The Porsche Touring Crew is a social group open to all ARPCA members and their guests.  PTC’s next event is a September 27 luncheon at Wooden Angel in Beaver, PA. that features a wide variety of Italian and American favorites, as well as an extensive selection of wines. Reservations are required and can be made at

RECAP PTC Baja Grill

Several ARPCA members managed to avoid a case of “Porschephile separation anxiety” (commonly diagnosed immediately following the PVGP) by attending the July 26 Porsche Touring Crew luncheon at the Baja Bar and Grill at the Fox Chapel Yacht Club.  Good conversation, good food and a sunny view of the Allegheny were enjoyed by all.  PTC’s calendar of free luncheon events is in full swing, with the next one scheduled for September 26 at Beaver PA’s Wooden Angle restaurant.  Register today at!
