Buffett Visits Google Headquarters

Post by phjim » October 23, 2008 8:31 pm

Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally were at Charlie's Cafe at Google Headquarters on Thursday at 10:00 AM for a corporate gig. An audience member (WileysMom) snapped these photos.

New technology unvieled on Margaritaville.com's Tour dates page lets you see the venue from space courtesy of Google.

Three videos from the private show are available on youtube:

I'm heading to Google's office in just a few hours to interview for a position--looks like I was just a little too late!

That's pretty neat, I can't believe that's the first laptop Jimmy ever signed. I wonder what other things he's never signed? That sounds like it's own thread.... :D

Here is someone else's Flickr set of the event.

Including a shot of the big flatscreen monitor I kept trying to read in the videos. The way it was aimed, I wonder if it was for Jimmy/Mac/Nadira or for the audience..... :o
