To go or not to go...



I hate the feeling when I don't know what to do.

Recently, I've received an invitation to the private dinner with creators and designers of the OUYA console (and few other invited people), before the unveiling party (and also that unveiling party of course) on 28th March in San Francisco.

It's quite a valuable, once-in-a-lifetime invitation and I would very much like to go, but with travel, accomodation and other costs it could reach (or even exceed!) $2500, which is a lot.

So I'm facing a question: should I expend that kind of money and go? I'm trying to think of as many reasons why should I go to somehow justify that kind of money, to find a way in which the "investment" would return to me in the future, because I don't want to throw this money out of the window. 

Maybe establish some connections with people from the press or other developers? Maybe... that's the word. Would you spend $2500 for a "maybe"?
Then again, in the situation I pass and stay home, I could very well regret not going and missing this unique chance.

I have no idea how to decide, I don't want to decide badly, but both alternatives have very high potentially for being a very bad decision.
So what should I do? The clock is ticking, I don't have much time to decide, but I still don't know what to do.

And like I said, I hate not knowing what to do.
