LOS ANGELES FRIENDS! You demanded and we are delivering: We’re throwing a soirée next week in LA with Amazon and you are all invited to come. All of you. Update: Event is full!

Here’s what happened. Amazon, in the interest of promoting its show The Grand Tour, which you may have heard of, reached out to us and said they had a house to promote all of it. Would we like the keys to said house? Hell yeah we would, and we want to party with 350 of our closest friends in one of our famed reader meet-ups. Why? Because we love you guys, they love you guys, and also, The Grand Tour!!!!!

No, the Three Amigos won’t be there, but I assure you, we are better company anyway. You can expect a high number of Jalopnik writers present, and you are free to pepper us with questions about turbochargers and the vast mysteries of how torque converters work (hint: nobody really knows).

There will be food! There will be booze! There will be stickers! There will be TONS of car talk! In fact, car talk will be most welcome. We usually hate car talk, but for you, dear readers, we’ll make an exception.

And now, for the details.

Time and date: Friday, April 27 2018, 7:30 - 10:30 p.m. PST

Where: Hollywood Athletic Club, 6525 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles California (Complimentary valet will be available on Schrader Boulevard)

Tell everyone. Bring everyone. See you there.

Update April 19, 3:30 p.m. EST: Well, that escalated quickly! Our event, which Amazon has informed us has a strict cap of 400 attendees, has already gotten 1,300 RSVPs. So, if you’re trying to RSVP and wondering why you can’t, it’s because we had to close the list. We are deeply sorry. Blame Amazon for not anticipating how much you love us and The Grand Tour!!!!

For everyone else who has RSVPed, we want you to know that the event is full, so it will be a first come, first serve basis. Thank you so much for your interest, it means the world to us. It really does.

See you next week!
