The Venice Beach community was just giddy to meet its new neighbors. The much-talked about new Google LA office opened their door the other day to a number of community members to get a first-hand look at the space and what Google does (aka, Google’s awesomeness). Googlers (the employees) translated tech to… well, you know, “regular people language.” But beyond the technology show and tell, my favorite part was meeting the engineers—the magicians—who enthusiastically shared their work.

I’m eagerly waiting to see the new products our new new neighbors come up with.

Hmm… but mayyybe if we invite them to a Chaya happy hour and buy them a few martinis…

Welcome to the neighborhood!
