Looking for free lunch in San Francisco

Salesforce BoredLunch
Apr 14, 2018 93 Comments

So I joined Salesforce a few months ago and we don’t have free lunches and to be honest people on my floor are pretty antisocial. I was wondering if anyone who works in downtown SF with free lunch is interested in just badging me into their cafeterias. I can offer free trips to SFMOMA as an exchange if you are into that. If you want me to eat with you it’s cool. if not it’s cool too. I am a female engineer and I am interested in cryptocurrencies and art and lots of other things. Not looking for a relationship, just lunch and maybe a fun conversation sometimes. You can bitch to me about your job and your free lunch’s quality since I don’t work with you. PM me if you are interested. Preferably your company is within walking distance. Google is closest to where I work.

    You know that they could get fired if the company get to know that they hosted you for lunch in exchange for a benefit?

      how can people be assured that you are not targeting the next youtube? cafeteria seems like a legit place for mass shooting killers.

      Every time I went somewhere or hosted someone everyone was formally signed in with email and name and the host has to be with the guest. At salesforce each guest has their own badge and also have to badge in. Is Microsoft just really bad at security and don’t do this? Also as to mass shooting killers I hope you report people in tactical gear with lots of guns to your campus security as soon as you see them.

      Golden gate is way out of walking distance. I do walk to the bay bridge a lot. Pier 24 has a great photo collection right under the bay bridge :):)

      It’s not new. It is some rich dude’s collection. It is free to visit though. Awesome collection that rotates. They have 1pm appointments daily. http://pier24.org

    so are the food prices high, salesforce pays so little or you’re just cheap? (my guess is the third one)

      Naw salesforce is a lot better than surveymonkey. It’s more to just meet some new people, too. I can afford lunch. I worked in San Mateo for a lotta years and have fond memories though. Worked at a company without free lunch out there and we drove to downtown and sometimes even Sunnyvale for epic lunch trips. I miss that

      I don’t understand why you guys assume I don’t like my job. My job itself is pretty great and my team is very respectful and supportive. SFDC is actually doing really really well on all fronts too and really the best company I have worked at so far. It’s just that a lot of people are older and eat at their desks. I respect their choices and don’t want to intrude.

      My office is not really cool unless you wanna see benioff’s old office with his Star Wars figures. There are nice floors in 50 Fremont. There are free cafes in rincon and the 27th floors of both 50 Fremont and 350 mission. The cafes are actually nicer than a lot of corporate cafes I have been to. Salesforce tower isn’t done yet but it will be pretty cool. I think the rooftop park for the salesforce transit center is opening in a couple months and we will have a free cafe up there. The top floor is planned to be opening by end of the year but maybe even by Dreamforce. If there are no events then employees can go hang out. To be honest I haven’t even been to all of our office space in downtown. There are at least six buildings and MuleSoft will be added I think. mulesoft actually has free food but we don’t know if we can badge in because I heard that people were not able to badge into the old Heroku office.

      I have been to the google office a buncha times and already saw the secret door and stuff. Lunch is fine :)

      We do. But I work in the other location. I live in the city and WFH sometimes. So we can definitely get lunch together on days when I WFH. I live closer to sales force office

      Is food better at uber now? I have been there and it wasn’t that good. But it’s been a few years. Went to Lyft recently in China Basin and the cafeteria there had better food, but was crowded as hell.

      Uber in the building on market is like not that impressive tbh. It’s shared with Square. I have been there a few times. It was really crowded. Maybe there’s a new office now?
