I received this email from Bob Morris, the original organizer of this get-together. I think it has been going on for at least 3 years or so.
The official start of Katie's Cars & Coffee will be the first Saturday in April. It will run through the last Saturday in October. Invited are all classic car buffs in the greater metropolitan area. Scheduled time is from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, weather permitting, every Saturday in front of Katie's, which is located at 7601 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA. (If you are not familiar with Great Falls, Katie's is located behind BB&T Bank and the post office off Georgetown Pike, next to The Old Brogue Restaurant.)
Katie's Coffee Shop will reserve all the parking spaces directly across from their entrance, for use by Cars & Coffee participants. There will be signage identifying the reserved spaces.
For those new participants, the concept behind the gathering is threefold: first, it's a pleasant desination on a Saturday morning; second, it's a chance to spend time with other car guys and gals while still being able to get home in time for weekend activities; and third, to have a good cup of coffee and view some really cool cars.
Stay as long as you want and, if you care to head down the road with others for a longer morning drive, that's great too.
The more the merrier, so feel free to share this information with friends and members of area car clubs who might also like to participate. Everything from antique trucks to rare Ferraris are welcome. Local Truimph, Jaguar, Corvette, Austin Healey, Ferrari Clubs, for instance, might be interested in learning about the event. If you have a contact at any of these clubs, please pass the information to me so that I can add them to our database.
Try and join us as many Saturdays as possible to make this a weekly event in Great Falls. Some of us will be there beginning this weekend, since the weather promises to be terrific, so feel free to stop by.
