    Hey OC Folks (and neighbors).

    Thanks to those who were able to show their support for the BC2BC EV Rally.

    Info for our next OC Tesla Meetup:
    When: Sunday August 11th at 11 am
    Where: Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa
    Map: Click HERE for link to map.

    Portola Coffee Lab (science theme...they wear lab coats) is located within SoCo/OC Mart, that block of furniture outlets off the 405 and Harbor. It is a specialty coffee house that roasts their own coffee beans. They give you several options for brewed black coffee and can make the usual espressos, mochas, and have an assorted muffins/baked goods, etc. They also serve breakfast and lunch fare. If coffee isn't your thing, their sister tea shop is next door. There are also other shops/restaurants within that area (eg, organic gelato shop). There are park benches inside and couches, so hopefully we can commandeer a section.

    Park in the center of the big lot to the left (see map link above). There are lots of outdoor parking spaces so should not be an issue. There are no charging stations. There are 4 charging stations down the road at IKEA if you are in need of a charge.

    Hope to see you there!

    P.S. If you have any suggestions of where we can meet next, let me know. Links to previous meets are here:

    Man, can any of these meets be a Sunday later on at night or a Saturday? I work all sundays. I'm lonely never meeting Tesla owners anytime I drive the car.

    Hope I am in town and can make it. Look forward to meeting everyone.

    Other options, what about setting something up with tesla store in fashion island? Could eat at any of the restaurants there or around the mall. And good promo for the store.

    Or Rose Canyon Cantina in trabuco canyon. Kind of a different spot that not everyone knows about.

    Hey Capt. Our first OC Tesla meet was at the Fashion Island store (First OC Tesla Meet June 2nd 10 am).

    I'll put Rose Canyon Cantina on the list. Gotta work my way up to NW OC (may even Long Beach) and NE OC like Brea (maybe their Tesla Store).

    Keen Coffee in Newport is also on the list (per suggestion). Perhaps do a PCH drive from Dana Point Harbor to Newport, and stop to get coffee.

    Sounds good.didnt even think about checking this area of the forum until a month or so ago. Glad Someone set me a message about it.

    Also, maybe a meetup at cars and coffee and then head out for breakfast after?

    Simplesolar: this one is just a meet at Portola Coffee Lab. The next one will be the PCH cruise from Dana Point to Newport and stop off at Keen Coffee in Newport.

    jealous! i'll be in hot and humid Florida the week after our OC meet. I hope I don't melt. Two weeks after that I'll be in Anchorage hoping not to freeze my behind. LOL.

    Thanks everyone for coming to this meet. I hope you enjoyed the coffee (or tea) and the company. it was fantastic as always chatting with all of you, and seeing the options/mods to your cars.

    If you would like information for future events look for these posts or send me a PM with your email address. Below is a panoramic of the event.

    Thanks and see you next time.
