I started the new job yesterday and it was awesome! I'm really excited for what's ahead. The company is in a really exciting time (we just got a shout out from President Obama; for real) and we have a lot of (good) work ahead of us. I don't think I mentioned it yesterday, but the office is located in Downtown Oakland. Luckily, once I wrap up training I'll be able to work from home (it's about an hour away), but in the meantime, it's fun to explore a city I don't have much experience with.
As a "welcome to the team, let's get to know each other a little more" time, my managers took me to a great restaurant called Cafe 15. It's a short walk from our work and has a great outdoor area. I ordered the Wild Arugula Salad, which came with goat cheese, melon, walnuts, and cinnamon pears. It was super yummy and surprisingly filling, but I didn't take a single picture (don't judge me, I was relationship building)!
Do you have any recommendations for Downtown Oakland?
