    San Francisco International Auto Show 2011 is coming up. There are also some Leaf test drives going on between 11/18 and 11/27 in the Bay Area per https://www.drivenissanleaf.com/Event/. Anyone going to be at either or both?

    I'll be at the SF Auto Show but I'll probably be going sometime between the 21 and 23rd, to avoid the crowds. I won't have my Prius w/me as parking's expensive around Moscone and I'll be at the show for probably many hours. I'll likely be parking at Daly City BART and taking BART there.

    I might sign up for the Leaf test drive in SF, but am not sure. I'll probably participate in the San Jose test drives even though I've test driven a Leaf before.

    Feel free to organize a mini-meet amongst yourselves in this thread even if I'm not going to be there... :)

    Thanks to a post at My Nissan Leaf Forum • View topic - SF Auto Show 11-19 ~ 27 Admission courtesy of Nissan, if you sign up for a Leaf test drive at https://www.drivenissanleaf.com/Event/EventDetails.aspx?eid=21, you'll receive a free ticket to get into the show!

    Do let us know if the Leaf test drives end up being indoors vs. out on the open road and whether the route is any good.

    I plan to sign up but I've already been thru Nissan's spiel once for the Leaf last year. If the test drive is going to be inside a building/ballroom, I'll probably pass and pay the $9 for the auto show ticket. It was just a unexpected bonus that Nissan's giving a free ticket.
