    Hello Houstonians. While normally in Belgium, I am on a business trip in the area through 11/19 so I thought if any one or more of you live in the area it could be fun to meet briefly and exchange on our shared passion!

    So... I'll be at the T≡SLA Store @ the Galleria mall on Saturday (11/12) at noon! Will have my blue M3OC shirt on as in my avatar pic! Hope you can make it!! :)

    Greetings, Mike
    P.S. Yeah, first night here, so jet lag can be felt!! :p

      You should schedule this around a BBQ! You are in Texas!

          Nice little store in the Houston Galleria mall...
          To be noted that the T≡SLA rep I talked to indicated that, though they don't know the exact number of cumulative reservations for Model ≡, they have an 'idea'... and, when promoted with my number of at least half a million... he replied that it was probably not a bad guess... I think we all have the same sources... and derive the same guesses... :p

          First order of business, after landing in Houston today, was to go & discover the brand new T≡SLA Store that just opened (a month a half ago) in the classy Market Street in the Woodlands... near where I typically stay...
          In addition to checking in this pic in the Teslarati app, thought I'd let y'all know, particularly all Houstonians amongst M3OC !

          For those of you in the area, fancy a quick get together there, this Saturday 1/21 at, say 10:00 am ?
          RSVP! ;)

          Hope that more folks join you for Saturday...

          By the way, Tesla is holding a Weekend Social at that (and other Houston area stores) the next day (the 22nd) between 11am and 1pm...

            Wow... Unfortunately I'll be back in Europe on Sunday yet coming back next month, from 2/15 thru 25... Any chance that is repeated that weekend ?

            Tesla needs to improve its communications with owners and the like.

            This particular weekend social got MORE notice than previous ones (almost 8 days notice from the first ones...)

              AM? 10AM? Why not a sleepover? I know your internal clock says 4pm at 10am in Houston,but 10am? I'd make the effort if I was nearby but would have to take an afternoon nap to recover since I'm elderly.

                Elderly? @ricardocabesa , I respectfully beg to differ... ;) at your reasonably young age, I bet you are still full of potential...! Certainly, I hope to be in 5 years... :D Besides I'll be in this time zone by then yet I've always been adept of the 'rise & shine' principle! :)

                Anyways, for those who are nearby..., I could make it a little later but I've got to be @ Bush Int'l by ~1:30 pm to catch my plane back to EU... Could also do it late pm this Friday if more convenient to potential interested parties... Just let me know if you'd to come.
                If not, I'll try this again when I'm back again mid February (WE of 2/18-19)! Thanks!

                  Hi Houstonians & other nearby TX residents! Reiterating my suggestion to meet at the new T≡SLA store on Market Street in the Woodlands, if you're in the area and available.

                  Back in 2HFeb so, if we miss eachother tomorrow, will suggest a back up plan!!
                  Thanks for response if you see this! :)

                    Hello Houstonians and other nearby-located Texans! Flying again tomorrow and will be staying at the Woodlands thru 2/25 noon.
                    Will give another shot to propose an informal get-together @ the brand new T≡SLA store on Mkt Street there (see above) either on Saturday 2/18 as of 11:00 am, or Sunday as of 1 pm, whichever is most convenient to y'all! Please let me know if you would like to come and which day works best!
                    Thanks, folks! T≡SLA Lives!! :):shootingstar:

                    Had a great time, with an in-depth demo by one of the reps of all the control features on the screen and a(n always exhilarating!) drive - though only in an S 75D... - yet no local from M3OC made it... Will give it another shot next time.
                    On a side note, I now finally realized (something all experts on this forum for sure already knew... ;) that full regen braking requires Dual Motor... Yet another reason for me to go AWD! :)

                      Keeping sending invites of other places you visit. If you ever make it to So Cal, that would be fun to meet up.
