Touring Crew Reprises Foxburg Visit
Featuring Fall Foliage and a Dip
by Wayne Desbrow, PTC Co-chair
That’s right – the Porsche Touring Crew is returning to one of its October favorites — the Allegheny Grille — but No! – no one will be taking a “dip” in the Allegheny River or competing in a ballroom dance contest.
The Grille, located on a scenic curve in the Allegheny at Foxburg, PA an hour and twenty-five minutes north of Pittsburgh, is well-known for its varied menu, which, among other things, features a signature prime rib sandwich called (you guessed it), the AG French Dip. And although it’s unlikely that any PTCers will be bringing their swim suits, the restaurant was recently voted the #1 Waterfront Restaurant in Pennsylvania.
Weather permitting, Crew members will be seated on an outdoor deck with commanding color-spattered view. Those not in a beefy mood can select the Grille’s seafood mac, their famous club sandwich or a variety of salads and other healthy options. In addition, most Porsche drivers weigh down their return trip with take-out dessert orders of the restaurant’s Chocolate Addiction or homemade cheesecake.
Foxburg’s interesting history is intertwined with its river locale and railroad accessibility. By the late 1800’s, despite Foxburg becoming a key “jumping off” point for the workers, equipment and supplies feeding the oil boom of that period, the town never grew much beyond 1,000 residents. Despite the town’s size, the Foxburg Country Club somehow became the “Oldest Continuously Operated Golf Course in the United States,” and home to the
American Golf Hall of Fame.
The Touring Crew will convene between 11:00 and 11:30 am on Tuesday, October 25 in the Grille’s parking lot – then move on to lunch on the deck or in the dining room just before noon.
The Porsche Touring Crew is a social group within ARPCA, and all PCA members and their guests are welcome to join in PTC events. Registration for PTC events is limited and requires a $5/person contribution to PTC’s charity fund.
