    Google MapsHi everyone, the last meet went pretty well. We're trying to have another meet in the Bay Area. This time at Santana Row where there is tons of parking and charging as well for us.
    Generally 8am starts with a starbucks nearby is good. Hoping to have a larger turn out than the one we just had with 15 people.

    Lets get together and talk Tesla!

    Winchester Garage, 330 Winchester Blvd, San Jose, CA 95128

    I appreciate you setting this up.
    It's a really big garage. Where to meet? At the Tesla showroom? At the chargers on the 4th floor? Not much atmosphere there...but a lot of Teslas!
    FYI, there's a Peet's Coffee at the south end of Santana Row.

    If you get there early enough, you should take up all of the street parking. That would be a sight to see!

    I was thinking the very top open floor of the parking structure.

    @Russell it would be sweet if we got there early enough to park on the row. I think we'd have a bigger turn out than actual parking spots.

    There’s a Starbucks closer to the garage than Peet’s FWIW.

    We have on our calendar. Have a friend in the area with a Model 3 and will let him know. For anyone looking to get your car washed, might want to book in advance with FutureWash— located in the garage there.

    LOL, we slept in and just getting up now so unfortunately will be missing this one. Sounds like it will be a nice turnout. Hopefully will make the next one.

    Thanks to @M3GATR0N for organizing this meet-up. I would guess there were maybe somewhere around 15 cars. It was fun, even the part where we got (politely) chased away from the rooftop parking by mall security, but they advised that we could hang out at the Superchargers if we were charging. IMHO that was a blessing in disguise because it was getting a little warm up there. It was great meeting (and in some cases re-meeting) everyone!

    (I didn't get any pictures, alas.)

    Bruce.

    He said we were... loitering!

    Sorry I couldn't stay after the meetup moved downstairs. Here are a couple photos taken right before The Man showed up. Looking forward to the next one and causing more trouble! ;)
