We meet every Sunday rain or shine at Alice's Restaurant in the SF Bay Area on top of the hill at the junction of Hwy 84 and Hwy 35. Good food, good people and plenty of awesome PORSCHE's

John, I agree that Alice's has been a destination for all drivers of all things motorized for many years, my first time was in '69 with the 356. I normally go up that way during the week, as there is lots less traffic and bikes to dodge. I will make a point of doing the run on a Sunday, what time are you usually getting there? I know the PCA Saturday brunch group meets about 9am. Making the loop from Santa Cruz and back is my favorite "release". Sometimes I'll go Duarte's in Pescadero for Artichoke Soup and Berry Pie, or to Buck's in Woodside for Potato Skins and Spinach Salad.

I would have thought Alice's Restaurant would be restricted to these:

Just in case out of towners decide to stop by, you do mean Alice's Restaurant in Woodside <www.alicesrestaurant.com>, not Alice's, a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco <www.alicesrestaurantsf.com>.

Jim, Almost true, but Wrong Alice, wrong coast, I don't think Arlo was ever there, but in the early 50's Woody Guthrie spent some time with a friend in the area. There are plenty of old busses in the area, VW and converted school. It's been one of my favorite areas for driving, nice roads, redwoods, decent food, and then the ocean and Highway 1.
Just down the hill a little ways from Alice's is La Honda, where in the 60's Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters lived, and they held "happenings" and Acid (LSD) Tests. Some locals are still living in that era. In LaHonda you'll find Apple Jack's Bar still a "happening", one of the best dive bars in the country, built in the 1800s, it was a bad ass biker bar, but most are "welcome" nowadays, on Friday and Saturdays music, sometimes famous or infamous bands play into the late night, a new patio out back caters to the afternoon partiers. All perfect for a 356, or a vintage Norton.

http://www.alicesrestaurant.com is the link to their website. Always check the weather forecast before venturing up on the mountain during the winter, it freezes over and the roads can get a little dicey what with the ice and all.

We meet in the morning. It’s hit and miss. Nowadays you’re more likely to see the GT3RS, 911R or other high end Porsche’s. But still we old timers proudly park our old four cylinder cars right up front.

How about the 1st Saturday 356 Breakfast, Mimi's in San Mateo. 8:30am., just off of Hwy 92 west of #101, by Target. Lots of cars if the weather is good. This Saturday is the Toy Drive, a new unwrapped toy or $10 cash.
Looks like the rain will go north this weekend so there should be a good turnout for both meetings.
