July 23, 2005, Summer Tour, BMW - Beer, Motoring and Wine
Mount Joy, PA
Travel through the Greenspring Valley of Baltimore County, Maryland into Pennsylvania. Lunch in Mount Joy, PA at "The Catacombs
After a lazy lunch, we will travel a short distance along the Susquehanna River to Moon Dancer Winery
After enjoying music, and wine tasting your return home can be either highway or, with us, a leisurely trip south along the Susquehanna, through Harford County, Maryland, and back to our start point. Since we will definitely be hungry again, our start and end point will be at a great Chinese restaurant. Dinner is a definite possibility.
All costs will be on a pay-as-you-go basis. We will need to know how many people and cars to expect, out of courtesy to the places we will visit.
Taste of Mount Joy
"Cruisin' Cuisine" is a family-oriented festival featuring antique, classic, and street cars and a delicious array of foods from some of the area's favorite restaurants like Bube's Brewery, Carlos and Charlies, Clearview Restaurant, Country Table, Hennigan's, Gus' Keystone, Liederkrantz, Mosby's Pub, Rotary Club, Today's Pizza, Watering Trough, Café Coffee, Wizard Catering, and Darrenkamps.
I intend to park at Bube's, walk to the festival, and then return to Bube's for lunch, as compared to breaking up and eating lunch on the street. We are up to a potential 40 members at lunch. I'll be sending menu choices later this week for info only. You can order when you get there.
Then, on to the winery.
Here is a recent note from the winery.

What to bring.
If you have any kind of folding chair, bring it with you. The winery has fantastic grounds, and either a chair or blanket will make your enjoyment that much better. They seem to run out of seating very fast.
We WILL depart from Greenspring Station - in front of Joey Chiu Restaurant on Falls Road at the Baltimore Beltway 695, NO LATER THAN 9:45 to 10:00 AM. Please get there by 09:30 AM for final instructions. I have moved up our estimated arrival in Mount Joy, PA to 12:00 PM. There is a car show that day. Events on Main Street are a very short walk from Bube's. This will give us about one hour to visit the show before we start lunch at 1:00PM.
Directions to the start.We will meet at Joey Chiu's Greenspring Inn, Greenspring Station just off the Baltimore Beltway (695) at the Falls Road exit.
