    I'm a resident of Palm Beach, and a delighted Sig P85 owner since November. Word on the Tesla website is that a new service center is contemplated for the West Palm Beach area (no specifics or date yet).

    In anticipation of the announcement, Lawrence Chanin has asked that I coordinate a get-together for the day of opening, with a group visit to the service center and perhaps a lunch nearby.

    So I suggest a couple of possible choices:

    • E. R. Bradley's (downtown, good parking, lots of table space, know the owner)
    • Pistache (downtown, French bistro, valet parking)
    • Nick & Johnnie's (in Palm Beach proper, same owner as Bradley's, good food)

    Any other ideas are welcome.

    Of course, we do not yet know the date that the center will open, so this is a bit preparatory. But please indicate your interest in attending this by commenting below so we can build a head count. Look forward to seeing you.

    Count me in!

    Do you know where they will be opening?

    Also, if possible my preference is a non valet location. It sounds like you have a connection at E. R. Bradley's and they have good parking. Maybe they will even reserve some spaces for the Teslas. (Always makes for a great picture)

    I'm in, and I've also heard that Tesla is looking into a possible showroom in Palm Beach Gardens after the West Palm service center opens.

    Hi Robb,

    It was great spending time with you at TESLIVE and the Port Saint Lucie Supercharger meetup!

    Thanks very much for taking the initiative on this upcoming event.

    Happy to. But since you seem to be the First To Know about Tesla's timing, let me know when you hear about WPB...in the meantime I will continue to prowl town to look for it.

    I've been talking to my Mom about TESLA...well actually, GUSHING about Tesla! She's never seen a Roadster or a Model S in person. She's 70 years old and lives in West Palm Beach. Just last week I was searching online for a showroom to try and get her a test drive, and the nearest is an hour away, and I don't think she'd drive that far to go there by herself.

    Could you maybe hook her up for a ride if she comes to your gathering? She's not a cranky old lady, she's actually quite pleasant and social. She's not on the forum, so unless someone volunteers, I won't even tell her about the service center meetup.

    Thanks! I'll send you a PM, and tell my Mom I'll be giving you her email and cell phone number.

    LOL!

    Mom's not on this forum, but I'll relay the message. I'm sure she will want to join you guys at your meet up now that she's officially caught the Tesla bug. Thanks Bill for showing her the MS toy!

    So far no date or location. Just stopped at Dania and they have no information. I'll try to ping Fremont and see what I can learn.
