PTC Slates Summer Sojourn
Eyes July River Retreat
Fresh off a record turnout at their Summit Inn event, and a week of non-stop PVGP activity, Porsche Touring Crew has set its sights on the perfect place to chill out and continue to recover from 18 months of social distancing! On July 27, PTC will lead a return excursion to the rustic Allegheny Grille in Foxburg, PA.
But despite the location, don’t count on spotting any foxes. It was actually the Fox family of Philadelphia that originally purchased several tracts from the Commonwealth (circa 1790) and subsequently named the municipality.
What PTC participants will find – after enjoying a network of winding roads that lead to the Grille — is a deck overlooking a bend in the Allegheny, complemented by a menu featuring everything from Riverstone BBQ chicken, to Greek pasta with sundried tomatoes, to a variety of heart-healthy options. If you are either a country music aficionado or a student of near-nonagenarian survival stories, you’ll want to try local favorite, the Willie Nelson Burger!
The local history has as many curves as the Allegheny River, itself. Despite the fact that Foxburg became a “gateway” town for people and supplies connected with late-1800’s oil boom, it never grew much beyond 1,000 residents. Oddly, the Foxburg Country Club (current special: “18 holes, a golf cart and a hot dog: $20”) is the “Oldest Continuously Operated Golf Course in the United States” and home to the Golf Hall of Fame Museum.
The Crew will convene in the Grille’s parking lot between 11 and 11:30 am to meet old (and new) friends – then move on to lunch in the dining room or (weather permitting) on the riverside deck.
The Porsche Touring Crew is a casual ARPCA group, and all members and their guests are welcome to join in PTC events. For more information, contact Tom Mueller (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Wayne Desbrow (email@example.com).
