    12/10/2011 - Pie Run to Catoctin Mountain Orchard

    Dec 10
    Winter Tour

    Depart 830 am
    December 10, 2011

    This pie run we will try something a little different. Instead of driving to the pie spot we will start the drive from there. We will begin at Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD and end at (optional) Prince Michel Winery in Madison , VA.& As always all persons are welcome to attend, whether a member or non-member (get those non-members to sign up.


    Catoctin Mountain Orchard Thurmont, Va www.catoctinmountainorchard.com We have been here so many times do I really need to repeat myself. A few of us have been known to leave CMO w/ 12+ pies. CMO is a mom & pop operation specializing in homemade pies, either baked or frozen. They also have fresh fruits, preserves, jams, jellies, dressings and cider and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. YOU MUST TRY THE APPLE CIDER!!!

    Note:I highly recommend ordering your pies ahead of time since we are a large group. The pies can be ordered freshly baked or frozen. Some people do bring a cooler with them to keep their pies from sliding around in the trunk, especially since we have a lot more fun driving to do. When you place your order, reference the "BMW group". The pies range in price from $8.95-$10.95. Check their site for the different types of pie.

    IMPORTANT:The deadline for calling or emailing in orders for pies is Thursday, December 8th. Popular pies I like: Apple Walnut, Strawberry, Cherry Crumb, Peach, Peach Blueberry, Blueberry, Four Berry.


    Next stop, Wilson Farms Meat Co., they have been a family run business for 55 years. They sell every part of the cow, lamb and pig. All meats are cut to order. This is a great opportunity to pick up some great aged meat for the holidays. Maya, the owner, is a joy to deal with and is quick witted. Don’t take her jabs seriously, she is only joking.
    Wilson's is a cash only business. No checks are accepted unless you are an established customer. It is highly recommended that you place your order in advance, especially if you want a custom cut. The store front is quite small and they will keep things moving. The meat will be packaged individually wrapped and then boxed tied with butcher’s string. You will definitely need to bring a cooler. We will pass plenty of places to pick up ice. There is also a place at the Exxon station about a 1/2 mile before we get to Wilson's to pick up ice. The cut off date for ordering is December 9th. I will send order form via email if you contact me: harlemknights02@gmail.com

    Lunch is a pie run favorite, The Bavarian Chef, it has been operated continuously by the Thalwitz family since its opening in 1974. Its cuisine is distinctively German and all the food is prepared onsite using Thalwitz recipes. Its recipes are sought after, but can only be discovered with the senses. When Eckhard and Bruni Thalwitz opened the Bavarian Chef in 1974, it quickly became a local favorite, renowned for its incredible portions of authentic German food and warm hospitality.

    The restaurant usually opens at 4:30 on Saturdays, but the owner is willing to open early for our group. The menu for our group will be fixed with beef, chicken, pork and fish entree options, assorted sides, dessert and drinks (non-alcoholic) for $31/person including tax and gratuity. They give you so much food that you are sure to take home a doggie bag! http://www.thebavarianchef.com

    From lunch, you can head to Prince Michel Winery which is about 15 minutes north of The Bavarian Chef. The tastings are complimentary at Prince Michel Winery. http://www.princemichel.com


    This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com.

    Registration will be through Motorsportreg.com

    I won't be able to do the whole tour, but I'll be there to grab some pies and ride around for a little while! Bringing the Z for one last ride before the snow hits.

    Tomorrow is the deadline to pre-order your pies at CMO and Friday is the deadline for ordering meats at Wilson Farm.

    Please order ahead of time so we can cut down the amount of time we have to wait at each location.

    Indeed. 3 or 4 Frederick County Sheriff cars arrived and cleared the whole thing up. I'm writing an article for DB about the Pie Run, and I'll include the details of the encounter in the article.

    So what sort of encounter are we talking about? Was this an urban vs. Suburban brawl? Were pies thrown?

    Simular to your August encounter only some folks got penned up in a driveway and were blocked in with no escape route...
