Porsche Touring Crew – August 2021

August 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am

Touring Crew’s Bedford Expedition
To Combine History, Track and Prime Rib

The Porsche Touring Crew is heading East August 24th on a return lunch trek to the historic Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford, PA.  The Tavern, which has been voted one of the best destination restaurants in Pennsylvania, was a PTC favorite in its 2019 lineup.

In addition to its lights-out prime rib, executive chef Faye Blackburn promises a wide variety of culinary attractions, including no-filler crab cakes, locally-raised bison burger and the Jean Bonnet Tavern Salad.  Most sweet-toothed P-car people will also find themselves saving room for the eatery’s homemade peanut butter (with drizzled hot fudge) pie. Sixteen draught beers will also help chill out the August heat.

The Tavern has a colorful history.  The land and building were purchased by Jean Bonnet in 1779 and originally opened as an inn, but the building soon became known as a gathering place by protesting local farmers during the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion — which was eventually suppressed by forces under President George Washington. In its later days, overnight guests have claimed to experience numerous paranormal sightings – many of which have been   documented in a hand-written “Ghost Book,” and have enjoyed national exposure on travel and biography cable channels!

PTC members will hold court in the Tavern parking lot between 11—11:30 AM, then adjourn for lunch just before Noon.  After lunch, PTCr’s can extend their trip in two different ways. ARPCA member Jeff Carey will lead a discussion, tour and possibly a few laps at the recently-renovated Jennerstown Speedway Complex, a short drive from the Tavern.  Jennerstown hosts five-division Saturday night racing from May through September, along with a variety of specialty events. Other PTCr’s may choose to visit the 9-11 Flight 93 Memorial and Visitor’s Center, also a short after-lunch jaunt.

Register Today!  Pre-registration on Motorsportreg.com is required for all ARPCA members and guests, along with a small contribution that supports a local non-profit.  Please note: both the Touring Crew and Jean Bonnet Tavern will comply with all safety and health requirements in effect at the time of the event.

The Porsche Touring Crew is always looking for new members and new destinations. Contact Tom Mueller (ermtcm@verizon.net), or Wayne Desbrow (wdesbrow@zoominternet.net) for more information.
