When you are meeting someone for lunch and their advice is not to eat breakfast because "the food here
is ridiculous"...that's a great sign.
Our good friend Holly, whom we rarely see since she moved down to California, works at Facebook. She invited us to meet her at work for lunch. Um, OKAY!
We arrived at noon and signed in TO FACEBOOK to get our id badges and notify Holly of our arrival (seriously, you do it all on FB...it was pretty cool).
Then...we walked into work-world paradise.
The inside of the campus is designed to look like a quaint Main Street of a small town. Complete with newspaper boxes and a fake road down the middle. Lining the street? Restaurants and bakeries. Dry cleaners and cafes.
Nice, right? Now, how would you feel if I mentioned it is all FREE?

We stopped in at the Mexican restaurant and filled up our plates, grabbed smoothies and aqua fresco, then sat in the sunshine to eat.
Can I work at FB? Okay, I am not qualified to do anything, but I could really get a lot of use out of that campus....
The kids thought we were at Disneyland.
|That's what I'm talking about|
Any room for ice cream? Maybe after we grab some pizza.
Why just have free ice cream and cupcakes? Why not have a candy bar to put on top?
Clearly, this place was designed by children. Or for children. Or maybe just for our family. BECAUSE IT IS PERFECTION.
Don't hold back, guys. Oh, no wait...you are already making gluttons of yourselves. Alright then, as you were.
We left with Facebook sweaters.
And a quick visit to Holly's workspace kitchen...because what a hassle it would be to head outside to the full-service restaurants. Just grab everything imaginable and put it right in your office...
