Looks good Ill see if my local crew wants to go
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
9:00 am - Meet in Rockville at Mid-Pike Plaza, Toys R Us parking lot
11802 Rockville Pike
North Bethesda, MD 20852
Leave promptly at 10:00 am. It takes approximately three hours to get to Philly from here (with tolls and stops factored in).
11:45 am - Arrive at Delaware House rest stop to regroup and use the restrooms.
12:15 pm - Get back on the road towards Philly.
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.
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!

Copied from M3Forum:
For those in NOVA there is a small caravan gathering at Tysons II at 7:45. This will be on the top parking deck by Cheesecake Factory. From there they will depart around 8:30 and caravan to the Rockville meeting spot.
Bump for this weekend! Weather.com is saying it's going to be 86 degrees with a 30% chance of rain.
For those of you who are coming from Northern Virginia, there is a small caravan gathering at Tysons II at 7:45am. This will be on the top parking deck by Cheesecake Factory. From there they will depart around 8:30am and caravan to the Rockville meeting spot. 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.
For those that want a "central" meeting point between Rockville and the Delware House, there is a group meeting at Ikea in White Marsh between 10:00am and 10:30am, leaving right around 11:00am to try to meet up with the larger group on I-95.
Thanks to everyone that came out yesterday! We had another great attendance this year with approximately 100 cars coming out. We even had a Gallardo Superleggera and a Ferrari F430 come up with us from Maryland, plus a Delorean! There was a backup due to an accident but besides that, there was absolutely no traffic the whole way up, not even at the tolls.
Once I start seeing photos and videos start to surface I'll post them up.
