Cinco de LinkedIn - May 3rd, 2015 (More RX100M III Pictures, edited in Lightroom 6)

Yay for relatives that work at ridiculous tech companies in the Silicon Valley with way too much cash than they know what to do with!  I should actually start a blog along the lines of "How to Survive in the Bay Area with No Job!  Hint: Just know more than 5 people that work at a company with free lunch and dinner."  Anyway, it was LinkedIn's "birthday" party.  It was not as extravagant as last year's, and didn't even have a zombie flash mob, I think it was totally fine - free food, games for the kids, and random events like pie eating contests.

My cousin brought some crunchy bugs from the Ferry, yeah, I didn't try any.

So I don't know about the others, but I go for the awesome (as in pretty good, but absolutely free) food.  Too bad I don't drink, otherwise, the free drinks would be even more awesomer. =)

I feel a little bad for the people that had to work (overtime?) though, but everyone was super nice and seemed happy.

There were two pie-eating contests.  I only got to see one of them.  Apparently most of the contestants were just kids of employees.

Look Ma, no hands!

There were quite a lot for kids to do - carnival-like games, balloons, bubbles, Mad Science, among others.

 After we ate some churros and ice-cream, we went up to watch the not-very-exciting Warriors game.  We got bored and played with the cupcakes.

Invasion of the crunchy bugs!

So, obviously, when given the chance, you should go to one of these Silicon Valley companies' parties!  Heck, even going on a random day for food is pretty amazing already!
