Second Mid-Winter Lightning Strike
At Popular PTC Bridgeville Eatery
Contrary to popular belief – according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration — while the odds of being hit by lightning are fairly high, lightning can, and often will, strike the same spot multiple times!
In effort to reinforce that scientific principle, the Porsche Touring Crew – for the second time – will return to Napoli’s Restaurant on February 28 to roll out its 2023 season. Its previous Winter gathering at the Bridgeville eatery drew an electrifying record turnout for the group, and PTC is looking for a repeat performance.
Small wonder. The combination of PTC’s camaraderie and Napoli’s slate of culinary comfort food makes for a perfect respite from the grey stretch of Pittsburgh’s painful playoff-less weeks.
Start by amping-up with one the restaurant’s appetizers, their “famous” fried zucchini or dipping Buffalo chicken, as a distraction from what might be the most challenging decision of the day. You might decide on one of Napoli’s signature entrees: chicken parm and pasta, meat lasagna or chicken Nicole with roasted red peppers and gorgonzola — OR go with one of their of luscious health-conscious entree salads. (Of course, one can always compromise with a side-salad “balanced off” with a few slices of Napoli’s pierogi pizza!). If you have the extra capacity, you might even top off your trip with some homemade cannoli or tiramisu!
Touring Crew will assemble at Napoli’s parking lot between 11:00 and 11:30 AM on February 28th – then move into the restaurant just before Noon. All ARPCA members and their guests are welcome but must register in advance on arpca.MotorSportreg.com; seating is limited.
In case you are wondering: Roy Cleveland Sullivan, a ranger in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park between 1942 and 1977, holds the record for being struck by lightning and surviving — SEVEN times! Perhaps Roy should have listened to golf pro Lee Trevino who quipped, “If you’re caught on a golf course during a storm and afraid of lightning, just hold up a one iron. Not even God can hit a one iron!”
