MEETING ROOM LOCATION:
Bodega Bay Tech Talk Room
Google - Building 1950
1950 Charleston Rd  (same as 1950 Amphitheater Parkway)
Mountain View, California 94043

The room is located in the back of Building 1950 — Looking at the Interactive Google MAP link below, this is the right "leaf" of the 3-building Charleston complex. Near the room's entrance, you'll see a large white awning/tent with tables and chairs underneath. There is also a Google employee cafe next to the Bodega Bay Tech Talk room.

NOTE: We have heard that the regular car/phone map instructions can be confusing so please use the interactive Google Map url below so you can view the target building and surrounding areas. Once you get there, all of the buildings tend to look alike and you may not see the building numbers as you are driving around the parking lot. If you have not been here before, please allow for some extra time to find the room. If you are lost, call 408-480-1690 and we will try to get you to the right place. Please make a note of where you parked.

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.

OR

-- If you are driving North on Highway 101, take the North Shoreline Blvd exit and turn right at the end of the off ramp.
-- Turn Left (West) onto Charleston Rd.
-- There is a small bridge/creek crossing under the road (see the interactive map, as it's easy to miss). Turn Right into the driveway 50 ft after the creek, or turn right into the main entrance just after that.
-- Go along the right (East) side of the 1950 Google building. There are a bunch of EV parking spots and a white tent near the spot where the meeting takes place. You want to park near here, though you may need to circle around the complex to find an open parking space.
