Airbnb is the whole reason any of us ended up in San Francisco because Adam got a job there. Airbnb is like one of those start ups you've heard about. Well, let me tell you, we saw it first hand. This place is crazy.
While I decide how to describe it, you can check out pictures of the lobby:
|they share the building with pinterest (I have to say, I'm|
pretty disappointed in the blandness of the pinterest sign)
|Proof that it's not just Rice a Roni|
Then we got the tour.
There's not just awesome kitchens at airbnb. The offices are in a very open space, but there are conference rooms all around. Some conference rooms are replicas of actual airbnb rentals and other spaces are designed for quiet space or comfort or other (there's a ball pit).

After begging HR to add an ESL department to airbnb, we headed out to do some shopping before picking up Adam for dinner. Katie made sure we visited the Farley's coffee shop. I bought a long sleeve shirt there because July in San Francisco is like March in normal places (and the shirt is awesome and says "Farley's est. 1989" on it-that will keep people guessing).
Oh boy, and it's only Friday! Read on, friends. Read on.
