I went to work in the daytime. Left work early with coworkers to go on our very first drunken get together and had free pizza with every drink we bought. But that was an even luckier night - there was a spokesperson from a liquor company present so if we drank something with top-shelf liquor, it was free. So free pizza & alcohol. (You have to see Crocodile Lounge) What could be better?
Showing up to a Google Event half tipsy, that's what. That night, I was meeting Jessica to see Vint Cerf, "the father of the Internet", speak at Google's headquarters downtown (if you consider 15th street & 9th ave. downtown Manhattan". Apparently Google doesn't really allow people to talk about the actual events and content of the talk if it's not an official Google announcement. Welp. All I'll say is that there was some good empanadas, refreshing water, talk about geeks in a van driving around California, Mars and penguins. That's right. Penguins.If you're in the NYC area, I'd recommend going to one of their events. It's a nice way to spend a low-key evening. Check out their site for future events.
