The real plus is that the May 29 event is Italian Cars only!

Photos from Italian Cars & Cappuccino Event

Here are some pics of Alfas from yesterday's Italian Cars & Cappuccino event. Good turnout- about a dozen Alfas as well as other Italian cars including Ferraris, Lambos, Fiats, Maseratis, and Lancias.

I would like to see this continue on some semi-regular basis. The turnout was good, people were friendly, and the best part was not having to wake up at o'darkhundred to get there. I am not sure if once a month is too much given the Saturday morning C&Cs are weekly. Perhaps once every Spring, Summer and Fall?

I woke up too late for Katie's Cars & Coffee this morning and decided to try Landsdowne, but nobody was there (around 10am). I thought this started as a first Saturday of the month thing but grew to an every Saturday post-Katie's thing. Does anyone know if the Saturday morning Cars & Coffee is still happening at Lansdowne?

Hi ;
don't wish to hijack the thread but since there's so many folks interested in Alfa-related events, we wanted to announce that our DC,MD,VA and SO. PA Alfa events will be posted on the new DCALfas-BB forum: DCALFAS- Alfa Enthusiasts of DC, MD, VA

Event announcements will be sent by email as well: you can sign up here DCAlfas.org

There will be at least 4 "winter" driving events (non-competitive) starting Sunday Nov 20 with one each in Jan, Feb & March. (Most experts say its preferable to do an extended drive with your Alfa at least every 30 days, than to lay it up for the winter).

DCAlfas also publishes a free e-journal with Alfa news, historical info, tech and other articles.

Other cars include: 1976 Lancia Scorpion
2007 BMW Z4 M Coupe

Italian cars welcome..(some events may be on space-available basis, but we don't anticipate that problem with the winter ones)
