I think you just have to be really, really good looking.

I think it is for Advertisers who work with Google sales reps i.e. you spend the big dollars

Nope - I wish they had invited me on that basis given our monthly spend! But just get an email from sbdy else who has been invited and sign up from there.

Just hope the kids don't get hold of this idea for their birthday parties!

Google seem to have accepted by reply to the invite URL. Anyone actually know what form of event this is? Presentations? Ball & dance? or meet up at a bar?
