2012 Euro Philly Cheesesteak Run - Saturday, May 26, 2012

This is for a caravan from Maryland but I wanted to post this here because I think it'd be great if you all want to meet us in Philly, or work out a caravan of your own!




This will be our third annual Euro Philly Cheesesteak Run!. Over the last two years attendance has been strong and we expect nothing less this year. We would like to keep the bulk of the cars "Euro" related (BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, etc) but if you have friends with nice cars that are outside of those parameters, certainly feel free to invite them. The only reason we're not inviting all makes and models is to keep it from growing to hundreds of cars (which it has been in the past).


2012 Euro Philly Cheesesteak Run
Saturday, May 26, 2012
1:00 pm - arrive at Tony Luke's Cheesesteaks
39 East Oregon Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19148



FACEBOOK EVENT <------ click for the event on Facebook.

If you live in the PA, NJ, DE, NY etc area and don't want to join the cruise (or want to set up your own), just meet at Tony Luke's around
1:00 pm. If you organize any of your own cruises, please let me know and I will spread the word.

Website: http://www.tonylukes.com.

Parking - the best place to park is next to the Tony Lukes restaurant, under I-95. There are at least a few hundred parking spaces so parking will not be an issue. There is also a small parking lot across the street for about 20 cars.

Eating - Across the street from the restaurant is the "steak shop" and that's where I recommend you get your food. There will be quite a line but it will be worth the wait. The restaurant has limited seating and will fill up quick with all the people that are coming.


If you post this on any other forums that I haven't included, please post the link here so I can update the list!

I haven't tracked how many are confirmed from the forums, but as of right now there are 60 "confirmed" and 30 "maybe" on Facebook! Hope to have another awesome run this year!

Most people don't work on Saturdays, that's why that day of the week was chosen. Sorry that you can't make it.

Bump for this weekend! Weather.com is saying it's going to be 86 degrees with a 30% chance of rain.

For those coming from the north, there's a group meeting at the Thomas Edison service area on the turnpike (between exits 12 and 11) around 9:30am and continuing on to Tony Lukes. All are welcome to join.

Additionally, after the meet, some of us are going down to the Simeone Automotive Museum which is just a short drive away (about 10 minutes down I-95). http://simeonemuseum.org

Just as a heads up everyone - someone on Bimmerforums posted: "Just an FYI.....Oregon Ave has been totally stripped of asphalt from Delaware to Broad, so wear your stone-chip gards/front-end bras etc. Ill update if its been black-topped before the event."

I personally haven't seen how bad the road conditions will be so just be careful and drive with caution.

Great...now it'll look like we're warming up our tires for a race when we are actually avoiding manholes.
