    So lucky!! If I was given a little advance notice, I would have booked a trip to SF, Napa, etc. and made a weekend out of it.

    Yep short notice but I'll be in SFO on Thursday, so an extra day is easy, even without a weekend.
    I think you are right, the weekend was their lure.

    Have fun @NikeWings - I was out to dinner w friends & RSVP'd within the hour - but the event was already oversubscribed. It should be fun.

    Does anyone have any insight into what this is likely to be like? I got the invite and already RSVP'd but am not 100% sure if I can coordinate the trip yet from Austin.

    If you can't make it, then I hope you can finesse a transfer for @bonnie

    From the confirmation email:
    • Invitations and reservations are non‑transferable
    • ID will be checked for all invitees and their guests upon arrival
    • Guests must arrive at the same time as the primary ticket holder

    @NikeWings is correct - you can't transfer it. Just be sure to let them know that you won't be showing up & I'm sure they'll send out a second invite round for those of us who couldn't respond quickly enough & see if we can do better given a second chance. :)

    I will be sure to cancel and them know if I can't go very soon... I really really really want to go and am basically busting out all the stops short of selling my kidney, but I'm getting desperate, so PM me if you want to make an offer on my right kidney... it pisses me off :) punny

    Tesla events are always worth attending, imo. I hope you can make it. I hope I get a second chance :). But honestly, I've been to so many events that I hope you swing it. And if I'm somehow there, say hello.

    My understanding was that it was for P100D owners. But not 100% sure of that.

    Has anyone on this forum been to a factory tour? Is it as glorious as I imagine?

    Everyone on this thread particular thread seems happier and I must say it's nice to see after reading the comments from the cynics at the "appetizers were meh last time at the model x delivery" :) Anyone have a debbie downer gif?

    I'm planning to attend. I will already be on the west coast next week, so that worked out.

    Was wondering if it was just for the earliest earliest p100d owners (which should have all had AP1 and shortly afterwards AP2 rolled out), or a larger group.

    I don't have a horse in the race... just curious and trying to gauge how far the invite net is, and also motive/etc.
