    DIRECTIONS:  

    -- From Highway 101, take the Amphitheater Parkway exit, which is also Rengstorff Avenue; Head North.

    -- Turn right (East) onto Charleston Rd.

    -- Turn left (North) onto the Google complex, at the 3rd driveway entrance. Look at the map to verify the driveway's location since it is hard to see in the dark.

    -- Look for the meeting room shown on the map.


    NOTE:  If you are coming from the other direction on Charleston (coming from the East and driving West), once you cross the creek's bridge, turn RIGHT at the first driveway and go along the right side of the Google building. You'll most likely see the big white hair cut van parked there. You want to park near here. Look at the map to verify the driveway's location since it is hard to see in the dark.
