I don't see a thread about this, so here goes...

Elon tweeted yesterday that they will hold an open-house "GigaFest" grand opening party at the Austin factory on Thursday April 7. No word on whether there will be invitations, tickets, a website to sign up, etc. At the Berlin Gigafactory event, there were 5,000 attendees allowed, but that had some Covid limitations....At any rate, it could be the "world's biggest BBQ"...I say that calls for ZZ Top to make an appearance, right in their home state (and their tour schedule is wide open)!!!! Discuss!!!

Man, it’s been a crazy 41/2 months for my wife and I. We would love an invitation to BBQ. ZZ TOP ? Damn. That would complete the whole
Vibe!
Elon, please send us an invite.
For now, well, I’m thinking
TV dinners! ?

As pointed out above, Dusty passed away (glad we got to see them from the 2nd row just a couple years ago!).

But maybe somebody like Toby Keith singing "How do you like me now?". :cool:

I’ve been unable to find out anything about tickets, reservations, etc. I reached out to my Tesla SA and they don’t know. Nothing on any of the forums. I would love a ride in the CT but even just a closeup look and maybe even be able to get inside would really make the trip worthwhile, and of course a factory tour. That said, I would NEVER walk away from Texas BBQ.

I just want to be there and see the Cybertruck in person, and of coarse eat some good BBQ ?

Invitations will be mailed out, Elon said. That lets them invite locals and press as well as customers and fans.

That's how they did it at German factory.

Bummer, that means I won't be able to go...
