    That was the first EV that I really wanted when it came out. I was obsessed with the CTS for a long time and then the ELR came out and that took over. In 2014 I was in no position to get one so I had to settle for a new/used (6k miles) Mazda 6.. :D

    Just tried it out last night to eat at Zinburger. No ICEing. They put it in a good location far from the mall. It was kind of tricky crossing the road, though.

    I’m heading over in a few minutes. Trying to decide whether to bring the Caddy or the Fiat.

    Awesome turnout!! Way to go!

    We only had three of us at San Carlos, but the electrons were flowing unexpectedly!

    Sorry we couldn't make it to the ribbon cutting. We were with friends at their bay house. On our return home, we stopped at the SC to replenish -- arrived about 1300 (that's 1 pm for some of you....) and saw lots of Tesla vehicles parked in the general area. Also saw about half of the stalls occupied with vehicles plugged in. We were afraid it was too late to join the gang at Yard House, so we charged for awhile and then continued our return journey home.

    We missed you by a few minutes. We were finishing up lunch right around the same time you were charging.

    Planning a stop there in the middle of the night. Any 24/7 restrooms nearby?

    Depends on how in the middle of the night. The Silver Diner is open until 2am on Fri and Saturday. You could also work over to the Hilton.

    I would walk across the street to the Hilton then. There is a place called Houlihans that opens at 6am across the street as well.

    There is a Starbucks, actually, but it would be a little bit of a walk. If it's a long stop and you want to use your legs that might be a good option and should be open.
