Year-End Dinner & Tesla Drive

Hybriders & EV'ers:

To commiserate over the season that has left us or perhaps the new addition to the family, you and your favorite partner are invited to join us for a dinner at the Pickle Barrel in the Yorkdale Mall. No agenda other than good food, good company and good conversation ... and clean transportation.

Yorkdale Mall is quite EV Friendly: 4 Level 2 chargers are located in the underground parking on the South wall painted Green and Tesla have 4 Tesla Level 2 Chargers on the same level on the opposite wall.

I've arranged a discussion with the manager of the Tesla Showroom, Martin Paquet, for 6 PM. So, leave work early and learn more about this amazing EV company, how they designed the safest car on the planet and their plans for their Model "X" SUV. If you bring your cheque book (or plastic),  you can pre-order your Model "S" or "X" right there, after your test drive in the Model "S".

Yorkdale Mall is now a massive mall, so, I'll try to guide you, as I just drove around to find the best way to our destinations. To park in the EV Charging Stations, come in the entrance at the GO & TTC Subway, go past Holt Renfrew (follow signs to South Underground Parking). Just past Holt Renfrew, you'll see a ramp on your right going down to the new underground parking garage with LED lighting and red or green lights over all parking spots. Take a ticket for 6 Hrs of free parking. As you drive down the ramp to P1, you'll see the Tesla's charging on the right, go past them and continue turning left around the perimeter of the garage until you see the Level 2 Chargers on the right against the south wall painted Green. Bring your ChargePoint card or other plastic to start the charger. They say that they charge $2/Hr ... not sure if they really do, though.

The escalator is close at hand, go up one level, turn around 180*, and you'll see Microsoft, Apple and Tesla. Meet at Tesla (I20) at 6 PM.

The Pickle Barrel is down the aisle next to Hudson Bay, go down their escalator and we have our own room down the hall. Mention the Toronto Hybrid & EV Club or Erik and meet there at 7:30 PM.

Bring your appetite as this is a "Grande" Pickle Barrel with a different menu than the others.

    Sorry I couldn't make it. I really wanted to, but neither the 401 nor Eglinton was moving.

    I've moved "B" to the side of the Mall where you enter the South Underground Parking for Chargers on P1. The "I20" is the "address" of the Tesla Showroom.

    Is this "B" the Correct initial MeetUpSpot as per your posted Map Location <>,-79.455200 "South Underground Parking P1 & Tesla Showroom (I20)" ??

  • exe*Cute*

    For people taking TTC str8 from work ...
    This I-20 is a location at the Parking Area <> or is it some "Showroom" inside the Mall itself ?

    Sorry that I will miss the Yorkdale event as I will be out of town on business.

    Perhaps he could talk about future plans such as the forthcoming SUV style model or technical innovations that have been developed since the introduction of the S model.
